Good hostel, especially for Bolivia. Typical breakfast of bread, jam, coffee and fruit - not very exciting but enough. Strong wifi, comfy clean bedrooms. Really close to the bus station and the rest of town (hard not to be in such a small town though) Strange thing with the kitchen where you can't cook onions or garlic (my bh is still shocked by that. Hasn't stopped mentioning it since we left) Lovely staff and they organised an excellent horse-riding trip for us.
The bathroom needs some attention, it was a shower room with toilet and the mould made the room smell, and with no window it needs to have some sort of ventilation and not just a window to the hallway. Lovely staff though and a brilliant tour!
staff are more than friendly, i was due to do a 4 day tour (through the hostel - whom i would recommend) anyways had altitude sickness and they wouldnt take my booking until the doctor said i was OK. they called the doc up who checked me out and i wasnt charged. great hostel too, very clean

Very nice hostel. Had everything we needed for a short stay in Tupisa. Connected directly to the La Torre Tours office were we booked our salt flats tour. Staff were helpful. Tupisa is tiny so location of any hostel is likley to be central. All in all we were happy with this hostel.
This hostel could be so much more if the staff bothered to show some customer service. I stayed for 1 night, booked a 4 day salt flat tour though them and then stayed a further 2 nights, and throughout the whole time the staff were snappy and rude, everything was far too much hard work for them. Don't feel compelled to book their tours, shop around.
Wifi should be 24hrs for travellers sometimes need to contact friends and family at odd time differences
Stayed here for two nights. First day the toilet became blocked, told reception. Said the cleaners would see to it. Nothing happened. The toilet remained blocked for the trip. Water supply to the ensuite only worked for half a day. Exchanged some Bolivianos for dollars at reception. Went our for dinner leaving everything in our privaye room, $100 was taken from our wallets during this time. Staff deny it could possibly by them despite the wallet not leaving the room at any time. Don't stay here
Very helpful in organising tours, which we enjoyed. Bathrooms and cleaned often and do have plenty hot water. Breakfast is nice, with bread, fruit, juice and choice of hot drinks. Rooms not the most secure, but easy to store valuables in the safe.
