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.
After the salt flats all I wanted was a hot shower and a good sleep and this hostel provided both of those things. Location is great. Wifi only worked in certain areas which is slightly annoying. Recommended.
Amazing hot showers! Exactly what we needed after Salt Flats tour! Staff was very friendly. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was blah - just white bread, sugary yogurt and fake puffy granola cereal.

Wouldn't allow guests to use the bathroom...bit weird and inhospitable
So upgrade to building / facilities is required. Wifi very slow and only works in common areas, no in bedrooms.
Nice basic hostel located in the city centre. Breakfast was good and room was very warm.
The rooms are poorly soundproofed. Usually the people stay only for one or two nights so for that reason the hostel is totally reasonable. The breakfast is alright!
great hostel, great location, helpful!! comfy beds and hot showers. good hostel overall
There are many more hostals in Uyuni for lower price that are nota listed on line. The room is not so clean and to get there you have to walk a wooden way that creaks waking up everybody. The receptionist was rude.
Wifi is bad. Don't even bother advertising you have it because it doesn't work. No fridge that I saw and one little stove that no one cooks on since there pretty much useless cooking utensils. Breakfast was toast and butter and one type of jam..... Again don't bother saying breakfast is included. Beds didn't have sheets only fleece wool type blankets that make you itchy.
This is a fine hostel to stay one night before or after your trip to the salt flats. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfy. Location is near all the agencies that offer the tours.
