Good stopover for before or after the Salar de Uyuni tour.
Our experience with this hostel was the worst we've had our whole trip. We arrived at 6am off a 16 hour night bus and were begrudgingly offered a couch to relax on for a couple hours then kicked out to the courtyard. Both staff members we dealt with (married couple) were exceptionally rude and unsympathetic. Guests around were shocked by them. It was also covered in dust and not overly welcoming. We were so turned off by our 2 hours there that we decided to pay our night and go elsewhere instead
I spent 1 night here after the Salar de Uyuni tour and would not stay again. I think there is a limited amount of hostels in Uyuni & the general standard is low. The showers near my room were broken so only 3 working in the whole place. Sockets were dodgy, only some hold a plug for charging phone. Kitchen was a joke, no fridge, 1 old chopping board, a tiny broken table and no proper utensils. It's a big hostel, so should have better kitchen. Good location, towels & wifi connection.
Nothing special . Small rooms, cramp area all together, just a dull place for a quick stop over and nothing more. Basically only options for that price, even price wasn't good.
This hostel was great as a stop off point from a 3 day salt flat tour. Hot water was a bonus and its walking distance to everything in town. It is on the touristic street so you feel safe. Wifi was not always working but i think that is the area rather than the hostel.
This place was very basic. The room was large and clean with a clean shared bathroom that provided hot water. However, there are no towels, weak wifi and the worst breakfast we've come across in our 11 months of traveling. We only stayed one night so it was fine, but not an overly nice place to stay if you are looking to stay longer than one night.
perfect to stay Uyuni for 1 night (before or after Salar). simple breakfast, wifi didnt work in my room (but works fine in common areas), hot water until 22:30, good beds, bathrobathroom could be better
The room was clean, the shower hot, and the staff friendly.
Warm fleece sheets. Hot showers during the day. Generic breakfast. Not the friendliest staff. But helpful when asked questions.
Good, clean, friendly hostel. Everyone is coming and going on the same salt flats tour. The stairs need fixing, the rail wobbles and you nearly fall through the top step. Very creaky floors, which is disturbing when sleeping. No looks on room doors, but lockers are available. Wifi only works in some areas, mostly outside in the court year where it is freezing cold.
Good points: location Drawbacks: very spoiled building, bad breakfast, no hot water after 10 pm. For a single night before going to the salar flats, it's a acceptable place to stay.
This place is fairly average for the amount you pay, but the cheapest hostel in Uyuni. The beds are comfortable and clean, but it gets pretty cold at night. The bathrooms smelt terrible the whole time and the internet was poor (but apparently this is common all over Uyuni).
Our night bus into Uyuni arrived at 4am, and on getting to the hostel we were turned away back into the streets of Uyuni! We were told we couldn't come in and relax in the common areas until breakfast had finished at 10am.... Not cool. Thankfully Noni's cafe is just round the corner (keep going on the main high street away from the bus station, turn right at the end). On knocking/ringing, Noni let us into her cafe, and actually offered us a bed each for 30Bs to use until breakfast. Our saviour!
This place is horrible. The staff is the worst I've experienced in my travels. I would never recommend that anyone stay here.
Had a great stay at Piedra Blanca! Beds were comfy and the facilities were great. Thanks!
Ok place to stay overnight, rooms are very basic and breakfast too

Friendly hostel, security wasn't great but we didn't have any problems. Expensive for what it is but the best we saw for Uyuni. Friendliest resident cat I've ever met!
ok for a short stay prior to a salt flats tour. WiFi only good in the lobby. Staff not friendly at all. Good location
well equipped hostel in the center of Uyuni, nice rooms and nice common areas, good breakfast included! and wonderful beds!
Decent hostel run by a nice couple Hot water and basic breakfast. Lockers and confortable beds. WiFi isn't reliable though and you may have to stay outside in the cold to use Internet. Anyway few people stay longer than one night so this hostel has what you need.
