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.

The hostel is ok, rooms and facilities are basic yet do the job. The issue is for what you pay you don't get good value. There was a heather in our room but they refused to turn it on for us despite it being freezing cold at night. If you want to come back and use the facilities after a... More

The hostel itself was okay but super overpriced for what you get. The hostel is pretty run down. There are much more in the area for much cheaper but online it's pretty tough to find. The owners were not nice or helpful. They were pretty rude and I saw them lie to other travellers in regards to other hostels in... More

Average room for price Heaters in room but they won't turn them on Come back after your salt flat tour and you can pay 15bs to use the shower (fair and good option) but the tense uncomfortable nature comes about when the owner patrols and keeps and eye on her watch and tries to nickel and dime you to death...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night while visiting uyuni. We had been travelling apart for a while and needed a central place to meet, as this hostel was the cheapest online we decided to meet here. The breakfast was good, the showers were hot and the wifi was ok for Bolivia. However you can definitely find cheaper... More

We stayed in an 8 bed dorm here for 1 night before our salt flat tour. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bunk beds were the biggest beds I've slept in in a dorm. The beds were also very comfortable and they had plenty of covers which is great as Uyuni is very cold at night time. There were... More

We stayed at this hostel for one night after our salt flats tour. It was fine for a night - comfy beds and great hot showers. The only let down was the wifi which was very slow and at times didn't work. Breakfast was te/cafe, bread/jam and yoghurt/muesli. An ideal spot for a one night stopover!

In the city Centre of Uyuni. Uyuni is a very small town/village. Taxi ride is a standard 10 Bolivianos from airport to any point in the city. City center is a nice lively place with lots of restaurants and shops. This hostel is right in the middle of it. It is a big house. We had a private room and... More

When we first arrived in Uyuni we were told people only book this hostel because it is available online which turned out to be correct. The hot shower was very good however if the manager feels you have turned the water pressure up too far they will come and bang on the door. Beds were comfy enough. Breakfast was very... More
