A basic accommodation but which served our purpose of accommodation before and after Uyuni tour. Good value for money, good breakfast. The bunk bed was comfortable and warm. Great hot showers - awesome after the 3 day Salar de Uyuni tour. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

We stayed here for night after our salt flat tour. The showers are hot, the beds are fine and there is a nice dining area to chill out in. The Wi-Fi was quite bad (you have to expect that in Uyuni) and the floor boards were so noisy, every time you stepped anyway you could hear it! They allow you...

We stayed here for one night after Salt flat Tour. Basic accommodation on Main Street in Uyuni. We had a double room with private bathroom. Room was big with a heater that came on at 8pm. Warm blankets on the bed also. Bathroom was big with hot water (only certain hours). Towels provided. Quite an old building with creaky floorboards....

Stayed here for one night. It has all you need and is right in the city centre. Very convenient when you arrive late at night. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is ok too (cereal, fruit, coffee, tea). Medium clean.

I stayed here for a night after my trip through the salt flats from San Pedro. I was surprised by the quality of this hostel, it's in a nice old character building, the owners take very good care of it and make sure no one other than clients enter the hostel. Wifi wasn't great but this is Bolivia, showers and...

This place has friendly staff, clean bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen (albeit, not very well equipped but not many hostels in Bolivia have a kitchen that guests can use so I count the kitchen as a plus. It was good enough to cook pasta and sauce) Breakfast was fine too. Eggs, cereal, yogurt, tea, coffee and bread. Great location too. The...

We stayed in a private double room with a shared bathroom for one night while sorting a tour for the next day - It was fit for purpose and the staff were nice. The building is old and the floors creek a lot when anyone walks throughout the hostel. The bathrooms were clean and there was hot water for the...

The rooms and toilets are clean. The water is warm and the breakfast is pretty good compared to all other places we booked before. So it's definitely a good hostel if you stay few days un Uyuni. It may be a bit more expensive than other hostels in Uyuni but it worth it. The hostel is at 10 minutes from...
