Hostel was comfortable and good location. Generally was freezing cold though, but luckily they have a lot of blankets on the beds and small heaters in the rooms. Breakfast was very poor.

Very good Hostel! They could work on that limit time for wi-fi though. The hot showers are amazing, but they work up to 22:30.

This hostel is a boring place in a boring town, but the beds are comfortable, the showers were very hot and breakfast was better than average. If you have to spend a night in Uyuni this is an ok place, slightly on the expensive side. We had to change the night of our booking and they did not honor the deposit. Understandable, but we have changed booking dates at many other hostels due to delays in Bolivia and this is the only hostel that did not honor the deposit, so something to keep in mind.

Nice little hostel! Only stayed for 1 night but it was warm and comfortable. Showers were nice and hot, breakfast was decent

This is a nice hostel. The bedrooms are warm (they provide heating from 8pm to 10am), the shower is hot and the place is clean. The staff is helpful. It's located on a important and busy street, so you will have everything really close to you. As people just visit Uyuni to make conection to somewhere else, there are no noise problems, like parties, around.

Very warm fleecy blankets on the beds and heating that stays on all night made for a cozy nights sleep in cold Uyuni! Hot, clean showers too and better breakfast than most Bolivian hostels - sugar puffs and yoghurt, toast with jam, tea/coffee and hot chocolate. Good location in the plaza in Uyuni by all the shops and restaurants. Would stay here again.

Beds are clean and are quite a decent size. Good breakfast and central location, nice little hostel.

Great location in the center of town, near multiple restaurants, small gift shops, and marts. Staff was nice and helpful. There was a heater in the room, but it was still cold in the winter so bring extra clothes/sleeping bag. Only negative I have would be that you have to walk outside to get to the bathrooms. Not a big deal during the day but in the middle of the night & in the a.m. during winter it's pretty unbearable.

Perfectly fine for one night before going on Salar de Uyuni trip. Hot shower, heating. Very central. Breakfast not very good though

Nice-atmoshere place in a historical building. Spacious rooms (twins/doubles) with electric heaters are very handy during cold night in Uyuni area. Staff is friendly, but they have not let us hang around the facility when we returned from a tour and were waiting for evening bus. Officially it is possible for a fee, but we were rejected due to "too many" people inside (common areas were empty at the time). This worsened our impression a bit. Otherwise good choice.

Good place to stay for a night or two in Uyuni. It's very cold in the winter and while the heaters provide some heat you will probably want a sleeping bag. Also note to get to the toilets you have to go outside.

A great value for your money in Uyuni. We stayed for one night before taking a 3 day tour, and it was absolutely good. The dorm room was quite warm (heaters work from 8 pm to 8 am). Wifi was surprisingly fast (for Uyuni), the shower was really hot, the beds were warm and comfortable with lots of blankets. For ~55 Bs it was a true bargain.

VERY GOOD HOT SHOWERS!!!


83%

Located right off the main square, Piedra Blanca is in a great location for good restaurants and all those wanting to check out the Salar tour companies. In June, it is pretty dang cold in Uyuni, but the rooms have heaters at night and the beds have plenty of blankets (plus you can ask for extra blankets). I stayed in another hostel in Uyuni as well, and I was much more comfortable at Piedra Blanca. Breakfast was pretty basic, but good nonetheless. I would definitely stay there again.

Has hot showers available all day as advertised with big clean rooms. Great after a 3 day salt flats trip or just before!

A very good place close to everything, given that Uyuni is cold and the buildings are built without heating they do a good job of keeping you warm at night with movable radiators in the rooms.

Hostel is ok generally, wi-fi was a bit poor and cut out. We booked for the night but then cancelled and they charged us half the fee plus some extra charges so we ended up paying 3/4 of the price which is not good value as they probably could have re-used the bed as we had not slept in them.
