Potosi is not an expensive city so 180bs for a double room is too much IMO. The breakfast was OK except for the fact that the cafe con leche tasted not very food due to the either old or poor quality of the used milk. Furthermore do not just Take their mine tour. Do your homework First and go and...

I stayed in a room with 4 beds and a private bathroom ensuite with a wonderful breakfast included for 60Bs/night. Warm staff, ample kitchen facilities, great hot shower, three blocks from the main plaza. Highly recommended. The mine tour they offer is very well run and an absolutely extraordinary, but strenuous experience !!!

This was a good hostel for the price. Well located with decent wifi. Nice choice of fruits for breakfast! My only gripe was that security seemed a bit lacking, the front door was always left open often with no one in reception... But other than that a good hostel.

This place is located in a quite alley just three blocks from the main-square. All rooms are clean and cleaned daily. The four-bed dorm was a bit cramped but ok. Bets are comfortable and there's heating (gas). There's only a few bath-tooms but they are all spacious and the showers have hot-water with good water-pressurel. Wifi is somewhat stable and...

This is a nice hostel with a good breakfast (if you get there early enough). It was nice to have kitchen facilities. Going to Potosi around Christmas was really nice as the whole place had a good atmosphere. The hostel was five minutes walk or so from the banks and a little further from the main square. We did the...

The hostel is pretty cool inside and set in a good location. The double ensuite room was slightly outdated, but clean and everything we wanted after a 3 day Uyuni trip. What was really good about this hostel was its solid breakfast! Coffee, tea or hot chocolate, scrambled egg and pancake, bread and marmalade and fresh fruit. Yummy!

We stayed here one night to do the mine your then left for La Paz at night. There was plenty of information on buses / tours - albeit a little misunderstanding sometimes with the language barrier. The staff were lovely, the breakfast was great and the rooms were clean. We were also able to store our luggage and use the...

Stayed two days! Breakfast is the best part. Wifi was decent. Nice hot shower! Beds have many blankets to keep warm. Don't expect the heater. The mine tour booked through them was good too. They don't seem to speak much English here but it's fine you work it out.

This breakfast was awesome!!! The lady running this place is hilarious and really looks after her people. Make sure you get there early though because sometimes the good fruit runs out! Nice kitchen, rooms with heaters, all in all it was a good stay. A bit pricey for bolivia but worth it for a night or two!

I just stayed one night in Potosi but I was glad to have found this hostel : the rooms are basic but the beds are comfy and they turn the heating system on in the evening which is a big plus given the altitude and the cold!! The breakfast is very good too and the staff was very helpful when...
