Stayed here for one night. It has all you need and is right in the city centre. Very convenient when you arrive late at night. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is ok too (cereal, fruit, coffee, tea). Medium clean.

I stayed here for a night after my trip through the salt flats from San Pedro. I was surprised by the quality of this hostel, it's in a nice old character building, the owners take very good care of it and make sure no one other than clients enter the hostel. Wifi wasn't great but this is Bolivia, showers and...

This place has friendly staff, clean bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen (albeit, not very well equipped but not many hostels in Bolivia have a kitchen that guests can use so I count the kitchen as a plus. It was good enough to cook pasta and sauce) Breakfast was fine too. Eggs, cereal, yogurt, tea, coffee and bread. Great location too. The...

We stayed in a private double room with a shared bathroom for one night while sorting a tour for the next day - It was fit for purpose and the staff were nice. The building is old and the floors creek a lot when anyone walks throughout the hostel. The bathrooms were clean and there was hot water for the...

The rooms and toilets are clean. The water is warm and the breakfast is pretty good compared to all other places we booked before. So it's definitely a good hostel if you stay few days un Uyuni. It may be a bit more expensive than other hostels in Uyuni but it worth it. The hostel is at 10 minutes from...

We only stayed for one night. The wifi only worked downstairs. Breakfast was good, the showers were warm and well needed after the salt flat tour. Plenty of bars and restaurants close by. It's a little hard to find at first but a nice place to stay for one night. Beds were comfortable as well which was the main thing...

The internet connection is bad. We got thrown out of the room twice, because we didnt told 'em the night before that we would stay. Although it was clear we would stay for a while. The workers are really strict. One positive thing is the treatment while being sick, we got good help. Plus the breakfast was nice.

We arrived at 4am & thankfully someone was around to see us in! The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The location is great, as is the breakfast, a fair bit to choose from which makes a change! Only negatives were very creeky floor boards along the corridors & wifi is only limited to one certain area of the...
