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.

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.
Good deal. Very hot showers. Friendly stuff. Cold nights. Heaters just work from 08.00 p.m. to 07.00 a.m. You can get as much blankets as you want. Beds are not that comfortable and common areas could be cleaner. Breakfast is ok.
Fine place to stay before or after a tour of the salt flats. Staff were helpful and place had a decent enough atmosphere. Heating was only put on at night and only in bedrooms, so main social area was pretty cold, but nothing an extra layer and a hat couldn't cater for.
It´s Uyuni. You can´t expect much. Limited timed heating, the wifi shuts off at night, and freezing cold when you´re not in your room. The showers are hot, which is a big plus, and the breakfast was good. The wifi didn´t work in my room and going out to the cold to use it wasn´t going to happen. Better than other hostels in Uyuni
atmosphere, not so much, i booked specifically for the private room and was impressed
If you're staying in Uyuni this hostel is not luxurious but ticks all the boxes - warm bed, hot showers and clean. It was all we needed after our 3 day 4x4 tour from San Pedro, but in hindsight we should have just jumped on the bus to the next place.
Nice to have heating in the room. Breakfast very avarage.
This hostel is in a central location. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. But this place reminds me of a haunted house. The floorboards are so creaky it's impossible to sleep. There was a blackout when we stayed and we were told not to use the hot water in the showers (??) even though there was hot water and we were freezing. Breakfast is dismal. And I've stayed in some bad places.
Hot showers are a definite pro! Maybe it would help to warm up the rooms or beds a litlle bit more by e.g. providing hot water bottles (for a surcharge). Furthermore, please expand the wifi range to the rooms and the kitchen/tv area as well.

Good for a 1 or 2 night stay before/after the salt flats. Could do with a bit of insulation or more heaters!! Beds comfy and warm with lots of fleecy blankets. Hot showers. Has WiFi but sometimes weak in the common room. Generally a good place to stay but wrap up warm!!
Really comfy/large beds, lots of blankets so warm at night. Staff friendly. Excellent location in centre of uyuni. Breakfast was very basic, usual stale bread with jam. Wifi is abysmal, but it is in most of Bolivia.
This is a decent place to stay in Uyuni. It`s located slap bang in the town centre near to all the touristy restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the dorms are spacious enough. There is hot water but only during limited periods. The woman who runs the hostel speaks English and is helpful. The interior of the hostel looks a bit scruffy but there are plenty of lockers provided and a common room where you can chill. The breakfast was also good. Uyuni is bitterly cold at night so be prepared.
