Really nice brekkie, comfy beds, plenty of shelf space in the rooms, clean, enough hot showers to go around, decent wifi for the area (they are strict about security though and change the password every day), good location. Really enjoyed my stay, a little bit pricier than some others nearby but worth it I think. Tried to come back again after my salar de uyuni trip but were booked out so consider booking in advance.


The beds were comfortable and the water was hot! Wifi was a bit weak but that seems to be the case in most places, breakfast was the basic bread, jam and coffee combo, one of the receptionists was really helpful and the other one wasn't. Uyuni is a bit of a dead tourist trap so this place is good to rest and shower before the salt flat tour and the pizzeria next door is decent even if the staff are rude. You do have to pay to leave your stuff while you're away but nothing is free in Bolivia.


We are a couple that had been heavily travelling for days and had booked a triple room in a rush by accident, when we arrived and asked to change this to a double room, we were accused by the owner of not booking this by accident and was rudely told we have to pay for the 3 people in a triple or look for other accommodation.. Luckily the price wasn't too high and the other receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect and the facilities were clean.


The doubles are really spacious and clean which was a nice break from dorms! Location wise you are bang in the centre of Uyuni and near to the tour companies to head out to the salt flats. Everyone seems to stay here for a day and move on so the transient group of people here meant that the atmosphere was transactional at best. If you want a quiet place to rest your head before or after the salt flats you will not go wrong here!


Breakfast was better than most in Bolivia. Wifi fairly quick. Great Location.


Helpful staff very good.


We slept in a double room, and it war a big room. The breakfast was very poor. Nice showers. Need som nice comon rooms.


Clean hostel in a great location. Not much of an atmosphere, but the hostel has all you need for a short stay.


Great location , good breakfast, staff a litle bit weird, bathrooms not so clean and 2 out of three showers broke down the day I arrived... I suppose it doesn't happen every week


Not many showers for the amount Of rooms and wi fi signal only worked outside of our room but apart from that all was good. Nice big rooms.


Relative to the hostels/hotels in Uyuni this place was quite cheap. Staff was great and very helpful when my bag got stuck in the lockers.


The staff were rude, the floor felt like it was going to fall through. The bathrooms ran out of hot water quickly. Did not enjoy it at all.


남녀공용 화장실, 샤워실인데 조금 개방적인 느낌이 들었습니다. 하지만, 볼리비아에서의 숙소 중, 따뜻한 물도 잘나오고, 공용공간에서는 와이파이도 잘되는 편이였습니다. 아침도 뷔페식으로 잘나오구요, 위치도 좋습니다. 다만 축제 기간에 가서 도미를 33달러 준게...ㅡ.ㅡ 볼리비아에서 모두 싱글룸을 사용했었는데요, 제일 비싼 돗 주고 지낸곳이 6인 믹스도미가 됐네요.


Good location it is. It's placed on the main street and easy to get everything in 5 min on foot. Bed and bathroom condition are very good and clean. Just a bit dark light and no wifi (however any hotels and hostels have free wifi in this town)


Nearly all beds need new matressess


I arrived very late (3am) after a long, hard bus ride, and was very happy to be here. Good building with common spaces, good breakfast. Thank you for the nice stay :)


Very warm room, HOT showers, good location, nice common area, standard breakfast. As far as Uyuni goes this is probably your best bet.


Better than we expected after our salt flats trip. Good sized common area. Right in the middle of town, without it being loud, good showers. WiFi wasn't working when we were there.


This place is ok, but they charge you extra for everything: 3 BOB/day to leave your bag, 20 BOB if you want to use the rec room during the day and shower if your bus leaves at night. The staff seem to struggle with math, so check their figures when paying. The showers are good and hot, the beds are very comfortable.


When I sought advice for where to obtain supplies, the owner did not provide helpful feedback. Other staff, who did not speak English, at least put in an effort to try to help.
