Good for a place to rest after the salt flats tour.
Great pitstop before setting off on a 3 day Salar de Uyuni tour. Hot showers, communal kitchen and sitting room area with TV and DVD player. Clean showers and great comfortable warm beds. Was also really helpful to be able to come back to use the showers, wifi and communal areas after the dusty Salar tour for 20 Bolivianos. Ok breakfast with bread, cereal and yogurt.
I was only one day, because Uyuni in general offers nothing more than a bridge to the magnificent experience of the Salar! The hostel is cozy, clean and equipped kitchen. Staff friendly and polite! Good breakfast ... Recommended.
Very large private room with clam bathroom. Hostel has a friendly atmosphere and is perfect for a pre/post Salar tour stay. Located on the Main Street with many restaurants, ATMs and shops nearby.
Awesome atmosphere. The court yard is a great place to hang and meet people coming off the salt flats.
Nice lounge room and common areas but the staff are a bit too militant for me, there are lots of unneccessary rules that are enforced at ever point imaginable. The cleaning lady who is lovely has a very badly behaved child who sits in the common room annoying guests on a morning - not ideal!
ok hostel for a few nights in uyuni. they had free wifi which was perfect since there is not so much to do in uyuni :) don't expect to much of a breakfast..

We stayed in both the private and the dorm room. Both of them had really comfy beds and we had a good nights sleep. The breakfast was really disappointing though.
Nice and clean. Very honest. Liked staying there. Carefully watched who was entering the hostel.

Really nice brekkie, comfy beds, plenty of shelf space in the rooms, clean, enough hot showers to go around, decent wifi for the area (they are strict about security though and change the password every day), good location. Really enjoyed my stay, a little bit pricier than some others nearby but worth it I think. Tried to come back again after my salar de uyuni trip but were booked out so consider booking in advance.
The beds were comfortable and the water was hot! Wifi was a bit weak but that seems to be the case in most places, breakfast was the basic bread, jam and coffee combo, one of the receptionists was really helpful and the other one wasn't. Uyuni is a bit of a dead tourist trap so this place is good to rest and shower before the salt flat tour and the pizzeria next door is decent even if the staff are rude. You do have to pay to leave your stuff while you're away but nothing is free in Bolivia.
We are a couple that had been heavily travelling for days and had booked a triple room in a rush by accident, when we arrived and asked to change this to a double room, we were accused by the owner of not booking this by accident and was rudely told we have to pay for the 3 people in a triple or look for other accommodation.. Luckily the price wasn't too high and the other receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect and the facilities were clean.
The doubles are really spacious and clean which was a nice break from dorms! Location wise you are bang in the centre of Uyuni and near to the tour companies to head out to the salt flats. Everyone seems to stay here for a day and move on so the transient group of people here meant that the atmosphere was transactional at best. If you want a quiet place to rest your head before or after the salt flats you will not go wrong here!
