Great hostel...secure comfy room, great breakfast, good facilities, right in the centre of town, and the attached tour company are just great, helpful staff and a great starting point for the salt flats tour.
Everything ok. The attached tour organisation tupiza torre tours was excellent.
Great hostel, we had a double room which was awesome! Had a wall mounted tv, nice view, plenty of space and a great shower. The staff are friendly and helped us plan our salt flats trip. We did the trip through Torre Tours and it was amazing! Not much to do in Tupiza other than get ready for the salt flats tour, but this is the best place to stay for that purpose!
The room and the bathroom were very clean, very hot water. All the staff were really kind. Good breakfast, with bread
More of a hotel than hostel....making the price great value for money. Poor breakfast unless you're into a stale piece of bread and jam. Great showers barring the few hours they didn't work one day.
It was nice to have a private room, but very large window overlooking other rooms that was very visible with the light on at night. Did not feel there was much privacy. Also stayed one night then planned to leave but had to stay another. Was told my room was still available after it had been cleaned. The sheets were not clean as I had spilt something previously and was still there when I went back. Good breakfast.
Torre is a good place to stay, but defenitely not the best we've seen in Bolivia. Best parts are the very friendly and helpfull staff, and the better than avarage breakfast. We didn't like that the rooms don't have windows, which gave it a damp and musty feel. In the first room we've stayed in the bathroom was really small, and the shower didn't have a curtain. So take one shower and the whole bathroom is soaked. We also used Torre for Salar the Uyuni tour which was pretty good!
This is more like a hotel than a hostel. Usefully situated (there's a travel agency downstairs and Tupiza Tours are just 4 houses down) and close to the centre (the town's small so everything is really). The staff could have been more helpful by offering us directions to local useful places (e.g. markets, good restaurants etc)- they lost interest in us when we didn't want to use their travel agency. The breakfast was good though!
