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!
Great hostel in centre of Tupiza. From here you can arrange your 4-day tour to the Salt Flats and more. It costs 1350 bab and it was totally worth it! Trip was amazing with a very nice and experienced driver (Hernan) and a great cook (Hector). I would recommend La Torre hostel and tours to everyone,
I booked a private single room with private bathroom. The room was quite big and very clean. It is a quiet hostel where you can relax.
A beautiful place with lovely staff, a great breakfast (bread, jam, yoghurt, fruit, tea/coffe
Nice hostel and perfect to book a tour to the salt flats in their won agency! We loved our tour and can recommend it to everyone! Staf was really nice and when we left before breakfast Theo even gave us a small back with some bread, fruit and yoghurt!
Good breakfast, close to travel agencies and restaurants. Staff was very friendly with our wrong booking (which was our mistake). Would recommend this for stopover in Tupiza.
Very accomodating staff and exellent tour operators. A little chaotic due to volume of traffic in reception but on the whole satisfactory. Nice breakfast with fresh orange juice. Fidel was an exellent driver/guide for salt flat tour.
