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.


Didnt stay the night in the end but hostel is close to town and te agencies. The hostel isnt an agency so you can get good information about the other agencies and location. He let me have a shower and it was seriously good. He also speaks english well. Dont know about the dorms but would recommend service


They ask for money to store your backpack when you go to the salt plains. stupid. The location is very good. next to the hostel is a nice and very cheap pizza restaurant.


Very basic compared to others in Bolivia. Although it is an old building, we felt it could be cleaner


We had a double room with a private bathroom. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The water in the shower was nice and hot. The room got quite a lot of noise from the corridor outside and the walls weren't soundproof, but this wasn't too much of an issue.


The hostel was ok. The room and bathroom were outdated but clean. The staff was not very good. They were not friendly and when we had to leave at 5.00 in the morning they refused to call us a taxi and told us there were taxi's at the church 24/7. This is not true. Consequence was that we had no taxi to get to the airport. While they easily could have called one, at the airport we found out that they do have phone numbers.
