Positives: central location, comfortable beds, hot showers, friendly staff. Negatives: no wifi, rubbish breakfast, really creeky floorboards, sounded like the place was going to fall down every time someone walked past our room!

Security was the weakest point with the door on the street open during the day, often with no one at the door. There were some lockers in common areas but not in our room and our room didn't lock. The beds were comfortable, showers hot and hostel clean, but no wifi.

This is a great value hostel but its incrediably rickety and gives the impression it will cave in soon. Its by far the cheapest we found and served its purpose for a nights stay before our tour.

It was very good hostel, big clean rooms, clean toilets, hot water, tasty brekfast. The only reason we cannot give 100% score is lack of internet.

excellent location, and very clean, good staff. Very basic room and irregular hot water service made it poor vaue for money compared to what we have used previously.

Cons: no wifi, more expensive than other local hostels (60 vs 35). Floor is squeaky. Pros: Very clean facility, comfy bed (So much better than 35 a night ones), quiet. Right next to Andres's tour (750 per person). Hot shower. I would recommend you make your purchase of snacks/drinks next street, not in the square, because the stores in the square are more expensive.

One of the most old and bad hostel that I had have booked


80%

We booked for one night, but the only bus out of Uyuni was for that same night, so we only stayed in the hostal for the afternoon and evening. The place was really nice, especially after 4 days of the salt flats tour. Our own bathroom and shower and place to relax was fantastic. Staff were nice and helpful. Location is very central and close to cafes and internet cafes.

Very basic hostel but does the job if you're passing through Uyuni on the way to the salt flats. Great location and the showers were really hot.


69%

This hostel is pretty basic but adequate for a one night stay. Positives: our double room was quite big and had an ensuite and the showers were hot. Negatives are that there is no Wi-Fi (although there is an internet café across the street) and the breakfast is woeful even by South American standards (stale bread, jam and instant coffee - definitely not worth getting out of bed for).


57%

It is located in a good place, but it has no internet connection, only part of the showers were working properly and you had to pay if you want to hang around after your checkout.

the hostel was good alltogether, however it's quite pricey for bolivian standards. the breakfast consists of buns with butter and jam, nescafe, tea and hot chocolate. shower was really hot, exactly what you need coming back from a tour.

Typical of Uyuni, which really is just a one night town. Don't make the same mistake we did and stay more than that. There is nothing to do and only pizza to eat... Excellent hot showers, comfy beds. Rooms are a bit cell-like and there's no wifi. Staff are nice enough. Didn't use the cooking facilities (not when there's 50 different pizza places to try!) so can't comment on that. Whole place needs sprucing up a bit - paint and new carpets would be amazing.

Very good option to stay over before starting or after finishing the Salt Flat 3-day tours. Staff is helpful and friendly, beds are comfortable and you have hot water all day.

Simple but sufficient

Hostel is really close to the train station, which is really convenient. We arrived there late at night, found it straight away. Staff were really friendly and the hostel was very clean and quiet, which was what we needed to have a rest before the typical 3 day Uyuni tour.

Good hostel for one or two nights when going or coming back from a tour. The location is excellent. You can walk from the bus station (5 mins). And it is next to all the streets where all the tour agencies are. Not having Wi-Fi sucked but oh well...

As far as standards of hostels in uyuni go this was great. No wifi- but none of them seem to have it. There is a large common seating area with a TV and DVDs and a kitchen where you get a free breakfast of fresh bread and jam and coffee. There were plenty of showers in the morning with hot water and it was clean. Big lockers in the corridor to put your stuff in. Also situated on the main square of av. Arce where all the restaurants are. Would stay there again.
