Great location and excellent value for money. Our room was clean - it was cold but there was plenty of bedding. The bathroom however, was very cramped with the shower over the loo.

Good location, but that's about the only plus this hostel has. The first double room we got still had the same sheets of the previous occupants. We complained and got another room, but spent a very cold night and very noisy night there. Not much of a breakfast either. After one night we decided to move on.

The rooms with shared bathrooms are all twin rooms. If you prefer a double bed and can afford a little higher price, choose... More

Extremely loud - you can hear every noise from the bathrooms through out the whole hostel, absolutely revolting. Hard to sleep because every time anyone opens or closes a door, goes to the toilet, sneezes, you can hear it. Staff are amazingly unhelpful bordering on rude.

This small place located right in the heart of Potosi (one block from main square) offers many facilities and alternatives to low budget travellers, it has REAL hot water, a comunity kitchen, a beautifull view of cerro rico from its observation deck, laundry, TV lounge, and english speaking personnel. They also enjoy helping you organizing your visit to Potosi attractions.... More
