The cleaner stole my friend's make up, shampoos and conditioner and jumper. They then started lying about whether we had even checked in. Not to mention the general unfriendly atmosphere. Seriously, don't bother with this place.

The place is really interesting, a great colonial yellow mansion in the heart of Potosi. But, unfortunately, they don't take care about the place! Garbage in public areas, broken windows and peeling paint will be part of your stay here. But they also have facilities with all tours, especially the 'Mine Tour' in Cerro Rico, and also with city tours... More

Arrived at the hostel bathrooms were disgusting. Stayed at a lot of hostels and seen a lot of horrible bathrooms but this one topped it. Nobody seemed in too much of a rush to clean them either. No water was working, and toilets would not flush. Some members of staff were not very helpful. I have basic spanish and was... More

A quick note we stayed here for 3 nights because we booked on hostel world, never again! You pay upfront for terrible service and facilities! We had a private with shared bathroom, which is a joke, there are only 4 bathrooms for 100 shared bathroom guests! This place is a money maker for some rich Bolivian! No toilet paper, so... More

We got there at night, after a bus ride from Potosi, after the cab driver tried to rip us off with the taxi fare, one of the staff members made some really rude comments about how we should pay because "It's way more expensive in your countries anyways" and stand with the cab driver. After this, all we were expecting... More

I wouldn't go here again. The staff was very unfriendly and unhelpful and don't speak English. We asked if they could check if we could get a bus the next morning and she told us that she will know in 5 minutes. After 2 hours I went to ask them because we were in front of the desk the whole...

We had the opportunity to stay in this hotel twice during our November 2014 stays in Potosi. This hotel is located centrally, 5 minutes on foot from Potosi's cathedral and Casa De LA Moneda.  The hotel is built on colonial style with the rooms round  a central courtyard. The room looked a little bit old and they require maintenance, but... More

This hostel has potential - when we first arrived we liked the open courtyard and the room seemed nice. But our positive first impressions didn't last long. We found the sheets to be dirty with hair and breadcrumbs. When we went to reception to complain and ask for a change of fresh sheets they were very rude and unhelpful. Breakfast... More

Stayed for 2 nights worst hostel I've ever stayed in.! Rude unhelpful staff, cold showers, wifi didn't work anywhere but the reception and I got destroyed by bed bugs. I would recommend sleeping on the street rather then staying here.
