“central location”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

stayed for a couple of nights after a salt flat tour from San Pedro. had a room with private bathroom, shower was hot, room was large and clean, but you may need ear plugs as noise from corridor and next door is quite loud. there is a kitchen and common area with tv, you get very basic breakfast included, we opted for the restaurant next door. location is very good, near restaurants and internet, hostel doesnt have its own computers. staff and owners are very nice and helpful too. not a bad choice for Uyuni which is fairly quiet and probably not a place to stay for too long, no offence Uyuni!

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm for one night after our 4 day Uyuni tour and it was pretty good!

The Good:
- Nice sturdy bunkbeds with warm clean blankets and comfy pillows.
- A heater was placed in the room at night so it was warm enough.
- Ok breakfast
- Clean shared bathrooms
-Location is very central.
- Lots of lockers to put your stuff
- Best of all: very hot shower- very nice after 4 days.

The bad:
- No wifi

Would definitely recommend this place!

Uyuni is a very cold place but the stay here was excellent as it was heated. Beds are very comfortable with many layers so you will not be cold. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom which was very clean and also had hot water. Do not expect too much out of Uyuni as it is in the middle of nowhere, but this place was worth the money!

I stayed here in a 4-bed dorm and was very pleased. The building has fantastic character, complete with wooden floorboards and twisting corridors leading to various hidden rooms. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The common room is a bit tucked away, meaning there are not always so many people there to meet, but otherwise it's a perfect location from which to explore this fascinating landscape. Best of all, the staff/owners were exceedingly polite and friendly.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in the dorm. The common areas are nice, but cold. The beds are very nice. The staff is friendly. and the showers are great. We did have some problems with very very noisy dorm-mates, but I guess that's not the hostel's fault.

After our Uyuni-Tour we slept here for one night. It was a very comfortable stay, our twin-room was very spacious and the beds were equipped with enough warm linens for this cold area. There was even a small heater but we didn't use it. The private bathroom was huge and had a great hot shower. Everything looked clean. A basic breakfast is included in the price.

When arriving, we learned that our booking (through the website) was a bit messed up so that we had to move after the first night to another room. Luckily, the other person had the same issue, so we could actually both stay in our rooms instead of swapping.

The room was clean but worn down (a little paint would do wonders), mostly due lack of ventilation of the bathroom. The bathroom was clean and quite nice though.

The hostel is on the main plaza, so we had quite a bit noise at night and in the morning. It was better the second night though, so it might have been something exceptional.

The hostel has a nice arquitecture, with a lot of wood and windows, so that was a real surprise. Breakfast was good and included.

Overall we liked the place, but it was quite a bit more expensive than other options in town.
