This place is the worst. Rooms are tiny and terrible. No electrical sockets in the rooms, there's a curfew, no communal area. The lady comes and knocks on the shower to tell you "times up" after only 4 mins. Stay elsewhere.

We arrived after a long day of travelling at 6pm to be greeted by a confused lady who didn't seem to be expecting us. We were 3 girls staying for 3 nights. Room seemed fine except we soon discovered there were no sockets and were then told the showers were switched off until 8.30 the next morning, much to our... More

We booked online thinking that being an HI hostel it would be nice, but it's not. When we arrived it took ages for anyone to open the door then inside we found the place to be dark and deserted with the water turned off and a sign on the shower door saying you need to ask the staff to unlock...

It was not AWFUL but it was far from good. The lady who was something like a receptionist was incredibly rude and she was always checking on us really suspicious and even "accusing" us of stealing a towel, what made us feel really uncomfortable. There was no breakfast and not even dishes in the kitchen so we could cook and... More

Okay, where do I begin... I know that we should expect service to be not as efficient as we are used to at home... But this was something else. - We had to wait 10 minutes for the lazy to open the door when we arrived. - 40 minutes for a hot shower... and you are only allowed to shower... More

We were booking this hostel one day before, our train from La Paz arrive at 11pm to Uyuni, we have been ringing in front of the door and the lady on reception was quite strange. Hot water is only throughout the day, and the main gate is accessible only when they open to you. But you have to sleep somewhere... More

Stayed here while visiting the salt flats of Uyuni. The location is good, especially when arriving late at night with the train. The people welcoming us were not the most friendly and serviceminded. The hostel it self was cozy enough with a livingroom where the floor was covered in salt etc. The showers were not exactly found everywhere, and you... More

NOWHERE to charge cameras and our cameras died on the first day of salt flats tour. Have to pay for extra shower. Only allowed to shower in 1 shower which happened to have a massive gap to... More
