The hostel advertised all rooms have heating and cable TV yet this place has neither in the room I have been allocated or in any room I have seen. Reception was not helpful when I bought this to their attention. Very central location however. The exterior appears recently renovated. The rooms are absolutely freezing and I was looking forward to... More

A nice hostel with an okay breakfast. Nice room but the hostel was unbearable cold t was impossible to stay warm. This made the stay quite unpleasant as we were told that the heater would turn at night and it never did. Staff were nice and rooms were clean.

We caught a night bus to arrive in Potosi at 10:30pm, ready for a hot shower and a good sleep. The shower was ok it was warm, not hot, could have been cleaner. The room was basic, beds pretty comfy, my partner complained of a loud dripping sound all night coming from the kitchen which was annoying. Breakfast was ok,... More

A friend recommended me this hostel. It was pretty empty, but I guess it depends on your luck. Beds are hard, but I still slept well, because the blankets are really thick (you cannot get cold) and because it was very quiet. Lockers are provided. Rooms need more plugs! Showers are clean, there is hot water. Breakfast is great for... More

We were in a dorm of 10...no space to move or to put backpacks! close to the stairs that lead to the terrace so a lot of noice. The bathroom in front of room 19 was really dirty. The one downstairs: broken tap! Breakfast was a joke (cups dirty, bowls for verras but no cereals). Owner was OK. WiFi very... More

Stayed at Hostal La Casona for a few nights. We had a 3 person room with en suite which was nice. The beds were comfortable and they give you plenty of blankets so you can be nice and warm. Heard some guests complaining about cold showers but ours was never cold. There seems to be some construction work getting done... More

It is cheap and the location is great, good breakfast and an enforced curfew. The facility is beautiful and has a lot of potential, but the desk staff were very rude. They just made empty excuses for everything and passed responsibility off to someone else.. You are not allowed to wash your laundry using the sink as they insist on... More

People is not friendly, they never smile. The kitchen is open from 14 to 21. You can't use the kitchen when you need it. The shower is cold, stuff do not help you. The good things are the structure of the big house and the breakfast.

At the first sight it looked OK! Apparently they have a huge problem of water infiltration. Our nuptial room was cold and the bathroom was a disaster. Sink, toilet and bathroom were liking.
