We only stayed here for one night but it seemed clean enough, with a nice big common room and kitchen for guests to use. There were plenty of shared bathrooms and lockers available. The atmosphere wasn't amazing, but not bad either. Internet only worked in certain spots which resulted in a lot of guests sitting in the hallways trying to get online. This was our first hot shower after being in a salt desert for 3 days so I'd say one of the best showers of my trip!
the stairs are way too noisy. the first day i got there, they had no electricity
Good hostel in the middle of town and 5 minutes from the bus. Comfy big beds and plenty space in the bedrooms. I was coming from the Salt flat tour and tired so can't comment on the atmosphere but the breakfast supplied was good - cereal, yoghurt, tea and coffee and bread. (which isn't stale!) Hot showers. Power cut in the morning but nothing the hostel could do as it was the whole of Uyuni.
This hostel was in a really great location in the Plaza surrounded by restaurants. Hostel was quiet and clean and room is nice and double room is large. Highly recommend :)
I stayed here the night before the salt flats tour. It was a perfect hostel for a night: Wifi, hot showers, comfy (and warm) beds, TV room, great location and good breakfast. Little shops and restaurants all around and walking distance from the bus and train station. The hostel has lockers and you can store your luggage there if you do not want to take it on the tour. Would definitely recommend you to stay here.
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
We stayed at Piedra blanca 2 nights after our Uyuni-tour. It featured a good breakfast and hot and spacious showers. The doorms was also spacious. Location is in the middle of the "tourist" street. Close to everything. Good wifi.
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).
I like the hostel. The dorms and the bathrooms are clean. Most of the time we had warm water. Just be careful with the stairs. The sound don´t sound safe... But the stuff ist very nice and helpful. All in all i would go there again.
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!
