This hostel has potential - when we first arrived we liked the open courtyard and the room seemed nice. But our positive first impressions didn't last long. We found the sheets to be dirty with hair and breadcrumbs. When we went to reception to complain and ask for a change of fresh sheets they were very rude and unhelpful. Breakfast is poor at best (stale bread). To top it off staff knocked on our room before the assigned check out time to tell us we had to get ready and check out.

Stayed for 2 nights worst hostel I've ever stayed in.! Rude unhelpful staff, cold showers, wifi didn't work anywhere but the reception and I got destroyed by bed bugs. I would recommend sleeping on the street rather then staying here.

Many backpackers come here to stay, including us.
But we changed to another hostel after staying only one night.

Good about this place:-
WIFI working even in room.
Hot shower.
Good place to mingle with other backpackers, as there are many private and dorm rooms.

Bad about this place:-
As other said, the staff here is not as friendly as you would expect. And most of them do not speak English.
Potosi can get very cold at night during winter time. The hostel advertised that there is central heating from ~7pm to 7am. We stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom. Heating really comes around 7pm, but stopped very soon before 9pm. Around 10pm we went out to ask about that and then the heating comes again (I believe if we do not ask the heating will never come thru). But it stopped AGAIN in the middle of the night. Our room door is directly facing outside and therefore it was freezing at night for the room.
The kitchen is open for use, but unfortunately it is not user-friendly at all. No oil, sugar, salt at all.

Overall speaking, there is much much better option with same price in town and that's why we changed immediately only after staying for one night.

Stayed here for two nights and on every occasion greeted by rude rude staff. .. have never met anything like it on all my travels. Disappointing as I expect more from hostal type accommodation. Rooms ok.. bbreakfast nothing special. Tour from hostel lacked substance.

I'm surprised that it doesn't get a high rating. It is a budget hostel so that is the first thing to say. There is wifi around the office which is free a standard breakfast is included. The beds warm and clean. Standard showers where the water is hot! And... And it is super cheap. Therefore this represents excellent value hence the 4 stars. This isn't a 4 star hotel but it is 4 stars for a cheap backpackers hostel.
