WIFI doesn't work. It was on but it wasn't possible to load a website. Breakfast was the worst of six weeks southamerica (driest bread ever)


Breakfast wasn't great. Bread was very cheap and fell apart and sugar puffs weren't fresh. We were told that we would have to pay to sit outside and use the wifi after we checked out while we waited for our bus which we thought was a bit ridiculous. Everything else was good.


Piedra Blanca is perfectly fine for a short stay. Let's be honest - no one comes to Uyuni to stay in town. To that end, the hostel provides everything you need - especially hot showers, which was wonderful following three days in the desert. Would certainly recommend staying here if you have to stay in town.

Very close to the train station and all the tour agencies. The beds are comfortable and clean and the dorm is warm. The bathroom was ok too with hot water. Breakfast is ok, but average. Staff was really helpfull all the time.


Had a fine one night stay here.WiFi worked, location excellent and rooms and showers were hot. No idea what breakfast like as we had an early bus the next day and we were not allowed any ingredients to make our own.


Central, standard class hostel in small Uyuni, bedrooms with heaters against the cold at night! Unfortunately no real areas for socializing, thus lacking atmosphere.


The hostel is a great stopover after a long bus journey or coming back from the salt flats. Apart from a lil slow wifi, which is common through all of Bolivia, this is a good hostel with all the amenities you need including a decent breakfast and with the best shower I had in all of Bolivia!


Poor and dirty kitchen, bathroom and dorms warm and clean.

Friendly people, perfect location and the best hot showers in town! Beds/matrasses in dorm were a little old, but good in the private room. Both the dorm and private room were warm at night. Breakfast was normal. Good value for money!


this is the only hostel in hostelworld, an comfortable place to rest, great location.


The hostel is really in a central position, and the value for money is good. Too many rules: do not eat in room, do not wash your cloths, ...


Comfortable beds, heating within the rooms and hot showers. Can't ask for much more when it's middle of winter in Uyuni! Delicious restaurants nearby as well as places to book a salt flats tour. Recommended to stay here!


this hostel was very good value for money. we just stayed for one night so it had everything we needed for a such a short stay. the breakfast was really good. however the conditions of shower and wi fi are pretty loisy but you need to consider that you are in the middle of nowhere. the staff was very kind and helpful.


Very nice staff, helpful and with good English skills. Amazing hot showers and warm and comfy beds with heating in the room during night. The best value to get in uyuni.


didn't end up staying here but would only stay in uyuni as a stopover very quiet and lifeless place


Great little hostel in Uyuni. Has everything you need including flannelette sheets and heaters for the winter. As well as hot water. It's on the Main Street so perfectly located to all the restaurants, stores and tour agencies to plan your salar de Uyuni trip. Highly recommend!


Great location and fairly comfortable beds but thats all the hostel had going for it. The place was really run down and dirty. Bedroom doors didnt close and were falling off, breakfast was pretty bad, bathrooms were okay but theres no hot water in the evening or mornings and the wifi suddenly cut out at 7pm.


Staff are unfriendly and not forthcoming eith info. Hostel is freezing cold but has hot showers from 7-10pm. Not much options in uyuni so onoy stay if you need to!

Amazing hot showers. The staff need to cheer up a little.


This was a good central hostel. We went at the coldest time of year and the beds were warm which is really important.
