atmosphere, not so much, i booked specifically for the private room and was impressed
If you're staying in Uyuni this hostel is not luxurious but ticks all the boxes - warm bed, hot showers and clean. It was all we needed after our 3 day 4x4 tour from San Pedro, but in hindsight we should have just jumped on the bus to the next place.
Nice to have heating in the room. Breakfast very avarage.
This hostel is in a central location. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. But this place reminds me of a haunted house. The floorboards are so creaky it's impossible to sleep. There was a blackout when we stayed and we were told not to use the hot water in the showers (??) even though there was hot water and we were freezing. Breakfast is dismal. And I've stayed in some bad places.
Hot showers are a definite pro! Maybe it would help to warm up the rooms or beds a litlle bit more by e.g. providing hot water bottles (for a surcharge). Furthermore, please expand the wifi range to the rooms and the kitchen/tv area as well.

Good for a 1 or 2 night stay before/after the salt flats. Could do with a bit of insulation or more heaters!! Beds comfy and warm with lots of fleecy blankets. Hot showers. Has WiFi but sometimes weak in the common room. Generally a good place to stay but wrap up warm!!
Really comfy/large beds, lots of blankets so warm at night. Staff friendly. Excellent location in centre of uyuni. Breakfast was very basic, usual stale bread with jam. Wifi is abysmal, but it is in most of Bolivia.
This is a decent place to stay in Uyuni. It`s located slap bang in the town centre near to all the touristy restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the dorms are spacious enough. There is hot water but only during limited periods. The woman who runs the hostel speaks English and is helpful. The interior of the hostel looks a bit scruffy but there are plenty of lockers provided and a common room where you can chill. The breakfast was also good. Uyuni is bitterly cold at night so be prepared.
Great place to stay before and after the salt flat tours. The beds were super comfy and warm with polar fleece sheets - soooo snuggly! Breakfast was a bit dismal - stale toast or stale muesli... but I guess it was food. Staff were super friendly and helpful, even when the power went out for a day! Would definitely recommend.
Nice to have a hot shower and comfortable bed after the salt flats. Still no heating in the rooms and wifi was down to Bolivian standards. Decent breakfast and a good restaurant at the entrance.
Most people aren't staying long in Uyuni so this hostel is fine for a night or two. Was extremely cold at night as the rooms had no heating.
In Uyuni you just want to stay one night in order to take the tour on the following day. The hostel is central located and ok to spend one night although it gets freezing at night.
Good place to stay for a night before or after a salt flats tour. Nice beds and hit showers.... Wish they had heating though!!
Good for one night. Warm, comfortable beds. Breakfast very average.
San Pedro is a pricey town for accommodation but this place is worth it. Very professional and helpful staff. Breakfast is great and they even prepared a packed breakfast for the day we had to leave early. Booked a twin room and ended up in a 3 bed-room - it was good to have the extra space. It's a small town so nothing is far to walk to from the hostel.
A good one night stay after coming off the salt flats. Big beds, big lockers, yoghurt, cereal and toast for breakfast. Decent wifi and good location. A good choice for Uyuni I would say.
Very good location. Friendly staff. Good facilities. Hot showers.
This hostel was generally pretty good. The beds were nice and warm as were the showers. It definitely felt very over priced however. What was truly frustrating however is that despite being extremely expensive they wanted to charge us an extra 15B´s each to spend any time in the hostel after we checked in the morning while waiting for our night bus. I have been backpacking for the past eight months and have never been charged to just hang out in the common area and watch some television.
This is a great place to stay whilst in Uyuni. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is near to both the bus "terminal" and all the tour operators who offer a variety of trips to the salt flats. the hot showers are a welcome relief as the nights get cold here. Breakfast is good with a variety of things to choose from. Wifi gets turned off from 11:30pm and comes back on at 8am. there are also certain hours you can only use the showers too. all in all a nice place to stay.
