Handy location for centre. Needs redecorating. Breakfast minimal. Could be great with more care

No lockers in rooms and you can't lock the door either, breakfast was absolutely horrible, showers were dirty and didn't really work. Staff were nowhere to be found when you wanted tips for things to do in the city. Kitchen was bad. WiFi were horrible and the staff were in general rude. Do yourself a favour and pick another accommodation in Potosí there are plenty and they are cheaper and better in all factors. Only good thing here was location but the other hostels are near this one

Very disappointing stay. No hot water on the first night and no water at all on the second night. Wifi was very patchy which was to be expected. Power outlets in our dorm were hanging from the wall. Dorm 109 is also very noisy because the main doors to access upstairs are just outside the dorm. On the plus the owners assisted us with a mine tour on the day we arrived which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Arrived late after the bus from Uyuni, took a while for them to open the door and then they had mixed up our booking (not put it in the book) so ended up being given a private dorm rather than a double room. The breakfast was very basic.

The building had lots of character - nice collection of antiques. Owner was friendly and helpful, though he only spoke Spanish. Decent location, close to some good restaurants and shops. Reasonable cleanliness. Was expensive for what you got - nothing spectacular in terms of facilities. Overall a reasonable place, would probably stay again!

+close to the center +lots of blankets. Traveled in October and sleeping bag wasn't needed +breakfast was basic bread and butter / coffee tea, but that is expected. One day there was also fruit, which was nice +basic facilities, good value for private room -laundry a bit pricey for line dry -you don't get front key so sometimes you need to wait a bit for them to open up the door -showers were hit or miss with warm water Overall good value.

Decent hostel overall. Offers you everything a standard hostel would. The staff are nice and were helpful with booking a mining tour and were ok with us checking in at 2am. Cleanliness was fine as well.
