Basic hostal which had warm rooms and hot showers. The kitchen was small, but at least there was one. The internet works ok.
Great location, WiFi ok for sending emails but not great, nice cosy room but very hard to get into top bunks, one ladder for the room! Very nice hot showers.
I was due to arrive at 7am and so booked the night before to guarantee myself a bed as soon as I arrived, rather than having to wait for the check in time of 11/12. Upon arrival I was greeted very rudely by the lady who told me that they had cancelled my booking as I had not turned up the day before (even though I did specify I was arriving at 7am). I understand there had been some confusion but she was extremely rude and unhelpful in the way she dealt with the situation.

Hostel in the center of Uyuni, 100m from the train station and next to many restaurants and tour agencies (ask at reception for recommendations). All the rooms are heated at night, and there are plenty of blankets so you won't feel cold. Hot showers until 22:30 and basic breakfast in the morning. Has wifi, which occasionally shuts down in the evening due to overload in the power grid.
We Stayed only one night. Hostel is warm and comfortable with a good breakfast and hot showers. Staff is very helpfull. Value for money and we would stay again.
Good hostel for a night in Uyuni, clean warm and comfy beds. WiFi being a bit patchy and limited hot water were probably the only down sides.
Very quiet. Clean. Good hot shower. It would be more comfortable if there were a lockable door for changing space for shower to keep one's privacy. Breakfast from 8 am but it was always late during my stay. First time I had to wait for breakfast. Also wifi use in sitting area would have been very welcomed.
This was a cheap and easy place to spend the night before our salt flats tour. Great hot water, but the shower door wouldnt close!

Good location. Perfect for stop over either before or after Salt Flats tour.
I only stayed here for a few hours while waiting for an overnight train. The owners were really helpful. I was more than satisfied with the place.
fantastic location, amongst plenty of good (but expensive) restaurants and tour companies. breakfast and bedrooms were great, beds were cosy and the bathrooms were kept clean. wifi was a lil sketchy - much like the rest of Bolivia. luggage storage and using the hostel after checking out came at a cost but it wasn't too unreasonable. overall a very comfortable stay :)
We only stayed here for one night after our 3 day trip to the Salt Flats and the hostel was really just somewhere to recharge our batteries before catching the bus to Sucre the following morning. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. As we were here just for one night, it's difficult to comment on the facilities / atmosphere. However, for a stop over, it's great and ticks the box.
Good hostel, perfectly located. The shower is hot and good, an important thing in Uyuni. Wi-fi isn't great. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Warm and comfortable. Good kitchen facilities and very near the train and bus station. No ladders to get on to the top bunks so a little tricky to clamber down in the night. Offering shower facilities to non guests means that it can be hard to use the bathrooms at certain times, although generally ok.
Good hostel for a quick stopover in uyuni. Beds were comfy, breakfast was pretty good
Perhaps a little overpriced for Bolivia. But good beds, hot water and breakfast was included.
After completing a three day Salt Flat tour this hostel was a perfect 1 night stopover before moving on. Breakfast was okay, the bed and showers very good. Would recommend...
Basic, clean, comfortable hostel perfect for a night before or after the salt flats. Bathrooms were cleaned regularly, sheets changed
The hostel is just in the center and around most of the tour operators. The hostel is very noisy with all the wooden floors and stairs but that has something as well. Staff is very helpful and even let us using the facilities (20 bol fee) after returning from the tour and before our bus left! Good hostel!!!
This hostel was nice, there was no where to lock your bag away when out of the hostel unless you paid for a locker. It was reasonably priced but they charge you for everything else such as leaving your bag there, using the facilities after check out which wasn't really reflected in the room price. There was hot water though and the staff were very friendly.
