A nice hostel to spend a night, clean, and modern bathrooms! Bit pricey. Good location in the middle of the pedestrian street, very short walk to train station and the bus station. The train to Villanez is an experience by the way, it shut down in the middle of nowhere for three hours and was six hours delayed in total!!

A decent hostel in Uyuni, despite being incredibly overpriced for Bolivian standards. The building is a bit run down and could do with some refurbishing – ie new carpets on the floor, rather than those awful rugs. Dorms are ok, if only a bit cramped (I think they put too many beds in one dorm, and with all backpackers having... More

With most people spending very little time in Uyuni, this place is a good option for a night or two pre or post Salt Flats. The dorm rooms are big with decent beds but the lockers are located in a central corridor rather than the room. The bathrooms are a good size with OK showers but are a bit grubby.... More

A great value for your money in Uyuni. We stayed for one night before taking a 3 day tour, and it was absolutely good. The dorm room was quite warm (heaters work from 8 pm to 8 am). Wifi was surprisingly fast (for Uyuni), the shower was really hot, the beds were warm and comfortable with lots of blankets. For... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hostal. 1 night in a double room with shared bathroom and 1 night with a private bathroom. The room with shared bathroom was much better value. After a 3 day tour from Chile we enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard. Also the room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was included, this was simple but... More

Excellent breakfast, very clean, great and comfortable beds (great warm sheds ), hot water, nice staff, well located. You won't find any better in the touristic spot of Uyuni where generally they don't have the scence of acommodation. Bolivians are very nice people but be careful of not being abused with the prices of tours :)

Booked a double room with a private bathroom. Clean and decent price but late night music is really loud. Breakfast is okayish.. do not expect much. But I liked here because staff was very nice and welcoming. Also the room and bathroom were clean! Will stay here again if i visit salar de uyuni!

We arrived at Uyuni with a night bus (13 hours) so we were a bit tired when we did the salt flat one day tour. The hostel has great staff which are very willing to help with any information. The room was clean and the beds were very nice. Breakfest was simple and good. Uyuni is a quite and relaxing... More

We stayed one night at the PBhostel. Can´t beat the location! The staff was very accommodating, room clean and the shared bathroom and showers spotless! Best hostel breakfast we have had in S-America. Also an excellent pizza resturant next door. Would gladly stay again if back in Uyuni! Wifi was la-la.

In Uyuni, which seems to be lacking any sort of pleasant atmosphere or charm, this hostel has it in the form of a charming old house with stained glass windows overlooking a central courtyard. The rooms are big and the beds are wide. However, it pretty much ends there. The dorm beds are tall and lack ladders. I had to... More
