Nice place, basic but cosy. Nice room, nice shower. Friendly staff. Wifi is not that great, but it works for light use. Had a nice stay here!

Nice hostel in the center of uyuni, surrounded by several restaurants. Hot water worked perfectly. Perfect for a stay before going to the Salar de uyuni next day.

To expensive. Bad system

Great hostel in a perfect location, right on the main square. Friendly atmosphere although a little noisy at night which wasn't great as I suspect most people have to be up early for a tour/flight. The owner was lovely and very helpful. Wifi was a bit hit and miss but that is probably down to Uyuni's location, not the hostel.

We stayed in the hostel with Dakar so prices were very high!! The location was very good and the staff very helpful and friendly. We slept in a 8 persons dorm which was ok! Big beds :) it wasn't easy to get into the upper bed without the staircase... The wifi didn't worked good. The breakfast was ok! I will recommended this hostel!

They are not really interested in making the guests happy. Everything is forbidden and the answer is always "no, it's not possible". No washing clothes, no internet in the rooms, breakfast very poor and basic.

Stayed here for one night before our trip to the salt flats. Bus arrived in town at 6.30 but we were unable to check in until 12.30. Wifi is pretty poor and no ladders to get up to top bunks. Though there were hot showers, rooms were clean and free breakfast. Grand for a one night stay in uyuni and right on the main square.

Not a bad place. A bit outdated, but the wifi worked. It was tucked off of the main street, which helped with noise.

The staff were friendly enough, and the shower was the best I've had while travelling, but it was extremely expensive by Bolivian standards, costing $20 for a bed in a mixed dorm. Also the lockers were not secure, anyone could have just pulled out the hooks and stolen your stuff, luckily this didn't happen.

Decent hostel for one night before or after a tour to the Salar, but nothing special. The hostel is clean, the beds are OK, but if you sleep in a dorm room (or any other room for that matter), bring earplugs because the floors in the dorms and also outside in the corridor are squeeky, it can be very loud at night. Electric sockets are a scarce resource, so plan accordingly. (if you want to charge multiple devices, bring an electric switch if you can)

Very unfriendly staff and un accommodating.

Perfect location at the main square, very close to everything. Quiet place to sleep. Good basic breakfast (toast, butter, jam, cereal, tee/cocoa). Breakfast starts from 8:15 which is a bit late in my opinion. Wifi was quite slow and didnt work that well. Nice hot showers, although 3 of 5 were out of order. Creaky wooden floors. Comparatively expensive for a hostel (79 Bolivianos for the 8 bed dorm). Lockers available, otherwise no locked main door or rooms, anybody could enter.

Much better than expected. Perfect for one night staff after salt flats tour.

I arrived at Piedra Blanca earlier than the scheduled check in time, so my friend and I had to stay in the living room for hours before we had our own room. We couldn't even take a quick shower in the communal bathroom, which I thought was really not helpful and welcoming. Staff attitude wasn't so great either -- they barely smiled during our greeting/conversation. Wifi is really weak--it's the strongest on the bottom floor, next to the reception desk. Not much interaction between backpackers.

Perfect for a one night stopover after the salt flat tour, we stayed here a night and then flew to la Paz the next morning. Decent rooms, good showers and the staff were extremely polite and helpful! Located right in the centre of town.

Good hostel overall. Good staff, decent breakfast, wifi pretty poor but otherwise no real complaints. Good hot showers as well. Great location.

Unfriendly, unhelpful stuff. WiFi didn't worked one day. 3 of 5 showers were most of the time out of order. It's not worth to stay here. Unfortunately there are not many alternatives in town.

The location and athmosphere was acceptable, but we spent most of the time there without electricity and the wifi never really worked. Furthermore, we came back to the hostel after the salt flats tour, and asked to borrow the wifi for 10 minutes in order to book a hostel in the next city, and we were asked to pay. When we said that we spent an entire night there without electricity and internet, we got a very bad attitude, and we were only reluctantly allowed to use the internet. Bad attitude.

Located very close to the bus terminal, staff was ok, wifi didn't work too well but bathrooms and rooms were good and clean. Hostel is good for one night before or after the Uyuni salt flates.

Great hostel. Nothing is missing.
