Many backpackers come here to stay, including us. But we changed to another hostel after staying only one night. Good about this place:- WIFI working even in room. Hot shower. Good place to mingle with other backpackers, as there are many private and dorm rooms. Bad about this place:- As other said, the staff here is not as friendly as... More

Big hostel central to the touristy square in Potosi. Travellers generally only come for a day or two to see the mines and this place suffices for that. I stayed in the 10 bed dorm which provided the usual horrors, dim backpackers packing their bags at 5.30am instead of doing it the previous night, honestly don't expect much sleep after... More

Stayed here for two nights and on every occasion greeted by rude rude staff. .. have never met anything like it on all my travels. Disappointing as I expect more from hostal type accommodation. Rooms ok.. bbreakfast nothing special. Tour from hostel lacked substance.

I'm surprised that it doesn't get a high rating. It is a budget hostel so that is the first thing to say. There is wifi around the office which is free a standard breakfast is included. The beds warm and clean. Standard showers where the water is hot! And... And it is super cheap. Therefore this represents excellent value hence... More

Great hostel but Internet only available on the reception where they have a noisy TV. Heating available during night. Good breakfast. I recommend to take the mines tour and travel to sucre by train if possible.

Located in a 1760 colonial building, this hostal has a great ambiance and allows you to drift back in time to colonial times. Very well set up with no destruction to the original building. Sleep quality was very good with plenty of blankets. The building is kept spotlessly clean with the basuras in the bathrooms emptied regurally. There is a... More

This hostal is pretty close to the city center, so it is obviously close to restaurants, markets and touristic agencies. The staff is friendly and they always have somebody on reception available in case you arrive late to Potosi, like in my case when I arrived the city at 1am.

Ok let's get the bad bit out of the way quickly - the mattresses and pillows are a bit lumpy so you do have to wriggle around a lot to find a way to sleep. And that's what stops me from giving this a 5*. However everything else is brilliant! Location is spot on, 24 hour English speaking receptionist is... More

It is true that once upon a time it was a great colonial building but it needs serious maintenance now. The room we slept had cables all around and a huge piece in the column above the door was missing -which made me feel insecure. Breakfast was terrible, breads were not fresh, butter tasted anything but butter. Only coffee was... More

I spend two nights in this hostel and it was really pleasent. The beds in the 8 persons dorms were nothing fancy but good enough to get a good night sleep. Breakfest was good, got tea coffee juices bananas and bread. Showers are supposed to be good, but since the main hall isn't heated was to cold of an activity... More
