Nice, clean hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful- one gentleman spoke English fluently and gave us recommendations to a nice cafe nearby. Location was great- walking distance to everything we wanted to see and we felt very safe in the neighbourhood. Not many people staying at the time we were here so we didn't meet many other travellers.
Our room was on the top floor facing the road. It was spacious and clean, however it was a little chilly, even with the heater on (I don't think the heater was very effective). Internet was sporadic on the top floor and cut out during bad weather. Hot showers were fantastic to warm up after a day at the mines. Breakfast was a nice little buffet with eggs made to order- a real treat!
We booked our bus ticket to Sucre through the hostel- it seemed that the company they used had overbooked the bus and we ended up quite delayed (arrived 2 hrs after our friend who left potosi at the same time) getting to Sucre as we had to change buses. I would advise you to book earlier than we did, or book directly with the bus to company to ensure you get a seat.
Overall a good choice in Potosi!
