The facilities are good and dorms comfortable, but the staff was generally absent and kitchen in a horrible state. If you a need a calmer place to stay in Potosi this can be a good choice when compared to the more famous hostels towards the centre (I basically had a dorm to myself for the entire stay).

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

This isn't an easy hostel to get into, once you find it you ring a bell at reception which is never open so you go through a side gate. There's no key so every time you want to get in or out you have to wait for someone to answer the door which could be a while. The decor is really weird and the hostel is freezing - one heater in the communal room but we slept in hats gloves and scarves! Breakfast is very basic but the kitchen is good! The location is also good but not the best hostel ever

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.
