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.


just okay.




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!


Amaaaazing hot showers and warm rooms with heaters. Highly appreciated after the cold salt flats tour :)


Very well situated on the square in the middle of Uyuni. Staff were very friendly

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.


Great place, friendly and helpful staff, great place to hang out while in potosi


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.


I was staying here during the blockades and the staff were very understanding of fluctuating plans. Breakfast was average, great hot showers, heaters in bedrooms were a bonus!


i was in a dorm room and that night someone saw the little mouse inside room. cold water, breakfirst is simple. the staff is indifferent and actually quite rude when i asked some questions. i will definitely not stay there next time,


The hostel = good location with cozy fleece blankets altho beds had dip. Heating great. Showers are mixed, had hot water although there is nowhere to put anything so hard not to soak everything. Other staff ok but there is 1 woman whose attitude stinks! When asking simple questions she spoke to us like dirt & when asked if we could stay around hostel longer (always ok in other hostels) she didn't give a straight answer & we'd have to pay, bear in mind we'd been stuck days due to roadblocks.

Great position, very friendly


I dont like the staffs, they are cold and unpleasant. The room is warm. No wifi at night time.


Amazing hot powerful showers, perfect after freezing on the salt flats! Good wifi


Only spent one day here. Place was fine but nothing special. Hot showers were definitely a big plus though.
