Hostal Eucalyptus
Ranked #3 of 21 Specialty Lodging in Potosi
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Right from the beginning it was great choice, location great and excellent WIFI! spacious rooms, very safe and secure. part of the Koala Tours company did a couple of tours with them. the views from the 5th floor are spectacular.

The place pays for itself: great breakfast and latte if you're nice to Jovana, but downstairs is a great place to meet other travelers and friendly locals with great information about the fascinating city of Potosí.

Thanks everyone in the KOALA world.

Room Tip: Choice the top floor rooms just for the views !

How the rich stay richer - pay slightly more here but it pays for itself: great filling breakfast (with eggs made-to-order and a latte if you're nice to Jovana), best internet in town, heater in the room, hot showers, spectacular five-story terrace, quiet in the room but downstairs is a great place to meet other travelers and friendly locals with great information about the fascinating city of Potosí.
Thanks Shirley, Erwin, Augustina, Jovana, Wilbur, Rolando, Zenón, Julio, Lydia, Santiago and everyone in the KOALA world.

I was really pleased with this accomodation. The twin room was spacious, warm, lots of plug sockets and decent WiFi working in the room. There was also plentiful hot water in the bathroom. The staff were friendly, and helped us book our onward transport to Sucre. Breakfast, bread, eggs, juice,yoghurt and coffee, was also good. Great value for money.

We arrived in Potosi's flashy bus station which was impressive, then got in a new and clean taxi, finally arriving at this new hostel. Potosi really surprised us! We only stayed for 1 night and were very surprised with the quality of this hostel - part of Koala Den and Koala Tours. The English speaking reception staff were friendly and we were shown to the room which had a great hot-water shower AND a working heater, yes a heater in the room! The breakfast was better than a lot of Bolivian hostel breakfasts we've had, consisting of rolls and jam, coffee/tea and eggs. We paid just over $20USD for a matrimonial room which we thought was great value. Highly recommended!

The staff is really nice and helpful! The rooms are clean, big and the showers are warm! You can´t do anything wrong by picking this hostel. The breakfast is o.k.! Its not the cheapest hostel in Potosi but if you want some quality, go there...!
