The attitude changed after refusing the offer.. I m leaving a review on the behalf of a japenese friend ; I booked three nights for my friend and i ve been nicely welcomed by the owner of the hostel by phone. Unfortunatly, once my friend arrived he noticed that the owner was drunk witch it give him a bad impression. The tourist was intrested to discover the beauty of the desert but the offer of the owner for the tour guide was way over priced ! My friend refused the offer and the owner changed his attitude witch leaves my friend with no option than leaving the hostel the next morning. I was expecting more professionalisme from the owner and m I feeling bad for such behaviour !

Unusual below ground hotel. Supposedly George Lucas stayed here while making Star Wars. Many Star War poster and some memorabilia. Decent local restaurant, beer available. Rooms are spartan. Service is erratic.

The hotel is famous for its troglodyte rooms and for some scenes of star wars. That can be seen in few minutes, but if you were unlucky enough to have to spend one night there, you will regret it. The toilets were horrible. I have never seen such dirt! Only one men's toilet out of six was acceptable, and the rest were unusable. We struggled to find something to eat at dinner. The hotel's staff were indifferent and careless. Some rooms were so small that you even don't have were to put your bag!
