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

Arrived here after a nightmarish bus from Villazon in the early, very cold hours. We're let in by staff at 4am, and I have to say, probably driven by the cold and long bus journey, this was a very cosy sleep! Beds were well blanketed and comfy, and the room (double) big. Amenities were okay, nice social area with tv... More

we made a mistake by booking this hostel on hostelworld because it was the only one there. it's an old, shabby, overpriced hostel. let's see the facts: 1. 6 bed dorm for 70 bs. ($ 10) per person. dorms don't have windows. only one power point per room. blankets were not washed. there were no linens. carpet on the floor... More

We arrived in Uyuni on the night bus from Villazon and decided to take a chance on the Piedra Blanca hostel, staying a total of two nights. I was happy to find that they advertised hot water and even more pleased when it turned out to be true (something you will always take a gamble on in Bolivia is the... More

Absolute little gem! We were exhausted after 3 days on tour and this was perfect to come back to. Private room was excellent and the shower was super hot with good pressure! Just what you need. Breaky included which was great for us just before we flew back to La Paz! Nice restaurant too right beside the hostel as you... More

Clean rooms, good facilities and super warm bedding (which is a must in Uyuni). Not much of an atmosphere though, but it does serve well as a base before hopping onto a Salt Flats your. Price is much more steep than in La Paz and other parts of Bolivia, from what I can gather this is just typical of Uyuni.
