The location was excellent and the showers were hot, but that is about all. Breakfast was a bun and some tea and coffee. The staff spoke no English. I also accidentally left my cell phone in the room and have been trying to contact them but because they dont speak English no one has responded.

Probably the worst hostel we've stayed in so far. No heating upstairs and the rooms are constantly freezing. You'll need a sleeping bag with you if you do stay here. Breakfast was practically non existent and wifi is really poor. Wish I stayed somewhere else.
Nice hot showers - a welcome break after freezing Uyuni! Security was good - front door always locked. Wifi in the room, but wasn't the fastest. Hostel has a nice feel - bit like a spanish hacienda.
Laundry service: soak your clothes in water and hang them to dry, so everything comes back as dirty. Breakfast: the most basic I've had in months of travelling, you're better off skipping it and asking for a discount instead. Staff: even in Spanish you only get dismal directions. Vibe: the lounge TV doesn't work, all you can watch there is who is coming out of the shower accross the patio. Rooms are so cold you don't need the freezer. Only heater on was in reception area (!). Wifi & showers ok.
I was given the key to my room with no orientation. The breakfast hour is only an hour long and it's early. At least they allowed for a late checkout. Also there was a piano, which I definitely enjoyed. No lockers that I saw, but I was alone in my room so no idea if that was just my room.
Great little hostel/guest house in a beautiful colonial building. Spacious rooms, lovely garden courtyard and one of the better breakfasts I have had in south america.
The hostel is freezing and showers are lame. Beds are comfy though and the hostel always secure. Okay for a short stay but I wouldn't stay here for more than a couple of days.
Not the best choice. A little loveless staff and facilities, bathrooms not too clean and uncomfortable living room. The location is nice though cause pretty much in the centre next to a pedestrian zone. You can live cheaply there.
The hostel is in a quiet area but close to everything. The house is very cold during the night. The rooms are big enough. The bathroom is "open", the showers very small, but with hot water. The staff is friendly. The wifi even works in the room. The breakfast is small, the kitchen as well, but I could cook very well.
Good: - Comfortable bed - Hot shower - Basic, but nice breakfast - Good location - Internet worked Bad: - Cold hostel - More a homestay (little kids running around)
The only problem was that they didn't deducted the 10% deposit from hostelworld and wanted us to pay the full price
Good cheap hostel. No lockers. Decent wifi. Staff were helpful - but they do not speak English which made it difficult at times. The place was clean, with a constant supply of hot water. Overall very facilities better than what you´re paying for.
Do not book this hostel! We got sick, because the floor was cleaned in something there smells Like gasoline.. The staff was really mad all the time og Only speak spanish.. We moved hostel after the first night! Nothing good to say about this hostel, it was the worst hostel we stayed at until now!!
Good place, poor service! Beds good, toilets clean
