Perfect for a one night stopover after the salt flat tour, we stayed here a night and then flew to la Paz the next morning. Decent rooms, good showers and the staff were extremely polite and helpful! Located right in the centre of town. I would highly recommend the flight to la Paz over the bus if you have the... More

Not sure why there are so many reviews about poor service on here - we received great service! The lady who runs reception was very helpful in letting us know where things were and best bus companies etc. the dorms were a good size and the showers were extra hot! It is more expensive than many other hostels but to... More

This hostel is in a good location, the showers were hot with good pressure and the place was generally clean. The stairs and floor boards were so creaky, I honestly think someones foot will go through them soon. The kitchen doesn't even have a fridge! The breakfast was okay, pretty typical Bolivia, stale bread and tiny bowls for cereal. Breakfast... More

I have a feeling that all accommodation in Uyuni is overpriced due to the influx of tourists. This hostel was certainly nothing special, and more expensive than my B&B in Sucre, BUT I will say: the beds were clean and comfortable, there was hot water in the shower, simple breakfast was provided, and wifi worked well for rural Bolivia. That's... More

This hostel is perfectly located for shopping for salt flat tours. But that is about it. The service of the employees is bad. The wifi is bad. We saw a mouse running out of our dorm room. Half the showers was working. Okay, those which were working were great. Breakfast is very very minimal and the kitchen is hardly a... More

I personally did not book this hostel, my friends did so I could not leave a review on Hostelworld. After coming from a 3 day tour of salar de uyuni starting in San Pedro, I missed the signs on the hostel bathrooms that apparently say doing laundry isn't allowed. There was also another person who did this but they were... More

This place was super pricey for Bolivia, and not really worth the money in my opinion... but all in all it was a functional one night stay. Hot water and kitchen to cook. We had a heater in our room which was pretty nice. Basic breakfast. You might need some extra blankets...

The beds in the dorm was nice and comfy, but the included breakfast was very sugar and carbohydrate heavy. I stayed there one night and booked another night from when I returned from the 3-day Salar de Uyuni trip, however, the trip ended sooner than I expected and was able to change my bus ticket til the same night as...

I booked a bed in the dorms through Hostel World and it was ready when I showed up the night before my salt flat tour. I was in a six bed dorm with three bunks and the beds were quite sturdy. The room was warm at night and I was able to sleep with no problem. The room had an... More

The breakfast was the best part of the hostel - it was very good. Unfortunately my room was freezing even with the heater they supplied. I had to improvise and use several cushions and pillows to block out the draft coming through the windows.The shower was simply awful, they did respond quickly when I reported it broken but only to...
