Stayed here twice, before and after a three day Salt Flats tour; had the same room each time. Winter was just two weeks away, but heat was non-existant. Shower panels were broken, causing bathroom to flood and never dry out. On first stay, no soap provided. Only one small towel during both nights. On the positive side, the bed was... More

I stayed here one night after the three day tour of Uyuni. The service is okay, there is internet in the lobby, and the room was big. I was looking forward to a nice hot shower, but the shower pressure in my room was weak, so it was not very enjoyable. I really don't know the quality of other hotels... More

We stayed here after our three-day salt flats tour and were really tired and needed some comfort. This hotel was perfect. Yes it is expensive for Bolivia but we thought it was worth it. The decor is really nice, the bed was soft and warm and had an awesome armchair and bay window in the room. The shower was hot... More

Wanted to charge us $70US for a night, likes the look of the room with antique beds, so thought we'd go for it. No hot water in shower, no working wifi. I realize this is Bolivia and both wifi and hit water can be hit and miss....but 70 US should guarantee it, as that was more than we paid in... More

The thing that stands out about this hostel is the pizza which is by far the best in bolivia. For the price the service can be way better compared to other hotels in bolivia at the same price if not a little lower. everything else was satisfactory.

This hotel is a bit of a hit and miss. We stayed here on two separate nights. The first night was amazing - the bedroom was large, the antique decor very charming, great shower area and hot water, and the room very clean. We decided to come back here for a second night, and for the same price, the room... More

The room that was giving to us was located on the 2nd floor, the water in the bathroom was cold, and the shower barely worked. Was a rainy evening and the water entered in the room. Room was dirty, our bed was the dirtiest. Breakfast was poor.

We have just left the hotel with the manageress & manager shouting at us. Terribly bad service, we would not recommend. Let me start by saying that the bread at breakfast was 3 days old - that should give you an initial indication of the care these guys have for their customers. We took a room for 1 night, and...

The hostel is quite good located in Uyuni. But Uyuni is very small, so everything is good located. When we got our room, there was a terrible smell in there. We were not sure if it was the cleaning powder or if they have painted the room recently. The smell was terrible. The room was big but a run down.... More

Not much choice in Uyuni and the rooms in this hostel are pretty good (in the new section at least) but at 60 USD a night they are seriously overpriced and that is before you pay 90 B for a pizza. The advertised wifi did not work and the staff showed no interest in trying to fix it. They tried... More
