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

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 :)
