“good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

stayed 2 nights in the last week. Staff were nice and friendly. Room was spacious and clean. Hot shower was great. You can go to the rooftop for a view of Cerro Rico too. Unluckily during my stay the weather was not good so couldn't have enjoyed a lot.
Location is good, closed to the main plazas/ tourist spots.

Some drawbacks: Heater seems not powerful enough for such a big room. Doors are hard to lock, kind of a fight each time i needed to open and close (even locking from the inside of room). But these are minor and my overall experience in the place was very fine.

Spacious rooms, good service, nice breakfast, friendly staff and very good heating system. The view from the terrace is amazing and there is good wifi all over the place! And you can cook your own meal :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room inside, to avoid noise and polution from the street

For the price we were impressed with this hostel. The place is airy with lots of light. Our room was simple but quite clean. The bathrooms had hot water and there was heater as well. It is in a good location close to many restaurants and the center of town. The staff were very friendly and they were able to recommend different activities for us to do around town. We made our reservation for the underground mine tour at the hostel. The breakfast was simple but it is what you would expect for the price. The lady even made us both a sandwhich when we had to leave in a hurry to catch a bus to Uyuni. Overall a good place to stay on a budget.

We were at this hostel for a night before heading south to Tupiza. It was nice and they had good computers and a kitchen to use, but our bedroom was a little dirty, as well as the bathroom. Other than that, it was fine and was reasonably priced for a night in Potosi!

My partner and I only got to stay here one night. It was a great hostel, very clean and the staff were very friendly plus the location was in the centre of Potosi.

My only complaints were that our heater in our room didn't work. We had been told that a restaurant we wanted to visit was open, got stuck in a torrential downpour, ran back to the hostel completely drenched to come back to a heater that didn't work. It was hard to dry all our things and we were pretty cold for the rest of the evening.

Apart from our rainy experience we had a great stay in Potosi and would recommend the hostel to others.

I had a nice room with private bath and the bed was really comfortable. The hot shower worked well and everything was very clean. All staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was good. The hostel is close to the main plaza.
