Nice hostel with big beds. Great location. Good breakfast in comparison to other south American hostels. Wifi was shocking during our stay though the worst we've experienced. Also you are charged 150/200 Bs after check out if you continue to use the facilities. It's not much but this is our 10th hostel and no others have done this.

Very accommodating, but not especially friendly. Basic breakfast, not a lot of cookware in the kitchen but enough to get by. Slow wifi only at reception or up the stairs, not in the common room. Plenty of hot water, but not all of the showers worked most of our stay. Comfy beds! Overall, probably best bet for the price in Uyuni, and not a bad place!

The location is great - near everything in the doggy village of Uyuni. There is practically no kitchen - only the things to support the breakfast they offer. So unless you want to eat instant noodles it is very hard to actually cook. The other downside is internet - but I guess if they wanted ti change something they would have done it after. So many comments and reviews. Welcome to Uyuni!

Unfriendly Staff! Never again!

Great location - right near a bunch of restaurants and most of the better Uyuni Tour groups. Very friendly staff - Darby was helpful and always available. Secure - we left our valuables in the lockers for three days while we were away on a tour and did not have any issue. Water - HOT showers and excellent water pressure! What more can you ask for.

This charming old mansion has stained glass windows looking down into a barren courtyard which the house wraps around. There are small sitting areas sprinkled throughout with a large common room full of big comfy couches. The kitchen is spotless, but with such cheap street food, why cook? The downside is the tall bunk beds which lack ladders of any kind and the heavy creaking from the old floorboards. The staff are also a little hostile (haha, get it? Hostile?).

I stayed here 4nights. Here is only 2-3blocks from bus terminal, and you can go everywhere in the town in 10minutes, like travel agency, market, train station..and so on, The staff worked hard, so the hostel is very clean and comfortable. There were super nice beds, comfortable common space, and really helpful staff! It warth to stay here.

Just a passage hostel. do not expect - and demand - common area, kitche abd all that. You will just stay here on night before going to uyuni salt flats tour. They should improve wifi quality.

The location is nice - but so are most other hotels/hostels in this small town. The shower was terrible with only a tiny stream of cold water. Extremely rude staff who came out of the hostel to ask me not to use their wifi after I checked out (yes I was OUTSIDE) and threatened to charge if I continue. *I must emphasise also that this is NOT THE ONLY HOSTEL available, there are over 30 hotels/hostels in town, many with cheaper prices than here too, you can easily find one when you get there

Really good if you're stopping off before or after the salt flats tour. Clean, big rooms, lots of blankets. Best showers we've had in Bolivia. Only downside is wifi is quite poor in the room but fine in the courtyard
