Cold dirty hostel, with occasional hot water and wifi that doesn't work. All of this you can cope with however the disgracefully rude manager you cannot, she literally shouts at her guests, argues with them and barks orders across the courtyard. Very bizarre and unnecessary behaviour. Avoid if possible.

Centrally located in the main square, a nice hostel with great facilities. Hot showers throughout the day and heating throughout the night. Rooms are very clean and a basic breakfast is included in room price. Courtyard which acts as a sun trap during the day and you can stay after check out time to use the hostel facilities for an...

Its a good place to stay for one or two nights, the showers are warm and clean. The beds are very big and cosy, they gave us three blankets and there is also a heater in the dorm. The breakfast is nothing realy special. Next to the hostle is a realy good pizza restaurant.

I arrived very early in the morning to Uyuni in search of a friend who I was supposed to meet and was out of contact with. I went to Piedra blanca to see if she was there and was met by the woman who I believe runs the hostel with her husband. She informed me harshly that she was not... More

Booked a private room for 1 night. Friendly staff, hot showers, clean restroom, heater in the room, a simple breakfast in the morning. What else can you ask for from a hostel? Wifi barely worked, that was the only bummer.

It is not clear whether the owners have given up on both life and the hostel or just the hostel itself. The two owners know that each day backpackers come in search of one night of cheap accommodation to shelter them from the freezing cold outside in Uyuni before they go on a tour of the salt flats and national...

I was only here one night, but it was the perfect place to get a nights sleep before the Salt flats tour. They had good free breakfast, and the beds were comfortable. My only complaint is that while they had plenty of blankets and a heater in the room, it was still incredibly cold in the room and I had... More

Fine for one night before the Salt Flats. Really hot showers, which you can also just pay to use without staying. Good breakfast with cereal, yogurt and bread. Really cold but the heaters come on during the night. Common area with couches. Good wifi but doesn't reach all areas.
