Important Information

Please, read carefully

**The following Terms & Conditions apply to all guests equally.

1. Bookings

1.1 Guests are required to confirm their ETA (estimated time of arrival) via e-mail so that their reservation can be guaranteed after 13:00 HRS (Peru Time - GMT -5) on the day of arrival. If your itinerary changes or your bus/plane is delayed unexpectedly, please e-mail us at frontdesk@bananasadventure.com. Otherwise your booking may be subject to immediate cancellation.

1.2 Full upfront payment of all nights and rooms/beds reserved must be made on arrival at the front desk.

2. Check-in and Check-out Times

2.1 Guests can check-in at any time from 13:00 HRS.

2.2 Failure to check out by the stipulated time (11:00AM) will result in a penalty charge equal to an extra night's stay.

3. Charges

3.1 There is a small government fee/tax on the Dune Buggy Tour (4.00 PEN per passenger). This fee must be paid right before departure.

3.2 Some other tours such as the Ballestas Islands, National Reserve and Nazca Lines apply a small government tax as well, which is also payable on departure.

4.Payment

4.1 Guests must pay any outstanding balance on departure.

4.2 We currently accept Visa cards only at an extra charge of 5% per transaction.

4.3 As the smooth operation of our card machine cannot always be guaranteed (due to poor reception within the oasis), we recommend taking money from an ATM on arrival in Ica (at the bus station or any shops nearby).

4.4 Due to Peruvian bank regulations, ripped, worn, old or stained US Dollar notes (United States of America Dollars) will not be accepted. This is the same all over the country. Please, we recommend that you check your US dollar notes before arrival at the hostel. Any other currency except Peruvian Nuevos Soles (local currency) or US Dollars will not be accepted.

5.Relocation

5.1 In the very unlikely event that the Bananas Adventure Hostel is unable to provide the required number and/or type of rooms/beds reserved by the guest, the hostel reserves the right to arrange alternative accommodation of the same or similar standard for the guest, within the same locality. This event will not release the guest of the obligation to pay the hostel for their stay nor does it entitle them to a discount or compensation.

6.Right of Refusal & Expulsion

6.1 The Hotel reserves the right to refuse a guest entry and accommodation if, on arrival, the hostel’s staff reasonably considers that the guest is under the influence of drink or drugs or is behaving in a threatening, abusive or otherwise unacceptable manner.

6.2 In the same way, any kind of behavior deemed inappropriate, violent or disturbing (such as annoying other guests or staff members) will result in the immediate expulsion of the guest and if necessary, local authorities may be called in to intervene. Airport authorities may also be notified.

7. Hostel Rules

7.1 The Hostel's bar closes between 21h 30/22h 00 in order to ensure that all our guests have a quiet night's sleep. Please, we urge you to cooperate as well by avoiding loud noises, loud talking or late-night swimming after this time.

7.2 Guests are not allowed to bring their own food or drink (including but not limited to alcohol) into the hostel for consumption or storage at the hostel.

7.3 On sandboarding tours, children under age 16 must be supervised by an adult at all times.

7.4 Illegal drugs of any kind or origin (either for self-consumption or sale and including but not limited to marihuana) are not permitted within the hostel’s premises. Please, respect other guests and avoid legal trouble.

8. Liabilities for losses, damages, etc.

8.1 Bananas Adventure Hostel will not be liable in any way for any loss of or damage to valuables or any personal effects that are left either inside or outside the rooms, anywhere within our premises or during a certain activity (including but not limited to the dune buggy tour and sand boarding).

8.2 Lockers are available on request to protect your valuables at all times. Please, make sure to keep your room key and locker key in a safe place and hand them back to the front desk at check-out. Penalty for non-return or loss: 20 PEN (local currency).

8.3 Guests will be liable for any loss, damage to or loss of hostel property or personal injury they may cause at the hostel or during a certain activity (including but not limited to the dune buggy tour and sand boarding).

8.4 The Hostel will not be responsible for death caused by the negligence of a guest or “act of god” or during an extreme sport (including but not limited to the dune buggy tour and sand boarding).

8.5 Guests will also be responsible for any psychological or physical damage caused to another guest, staff or visitor.

8.6 Any indemnification made by the guest must cover the total costs and expenses of repair and/or replacement.

WARNING: Ensure that you are dropped off at the correct hostel as taxi drivers may attempt to take you to another hostel. On arrival in Huacachina, look for the sign displaying Bananas Adventure. Avoid purchasing tours/packages or accepting any offers from taxi drivers as they are usually more expensive. Tours & packages are available at Bananas.
