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.

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
