it's your typical hostel.. (aka barely working wifi, small room, shower that oscillates between too hot and too cold, little to no AC). downside is that it's really in the middle of nowhere or the edge of the city. didn't particularly feel safe to walk at night.

This was a pretty decent hotel, comfy beds and quite nice bathrooms etc, but our shower stopped working and we had to use a friends room. The hotel is quite a walk from anything and because it is near the salt flats it was quite windy and dusty walking anywhere

My room mate and I suffered so much in this hotel for two days. The was no air conditioner and almost all windows were not openable. We relied only on one window that could open other wise we would have suffered from stuffiness. Wi-fi is an issue as well. There was a young boy down stairs who kept playing his...

Clean and Friendly service in this mid range 3 star hotel in the center of Uyuni. Just spent a night there waiting for a night bus. Was a bit noisy as the hotel was almost empty and the staff could careless lol

We stayed here as part of our Intepid tour. Rooms were comfortable and very warm, wifi worked well. We had hot water. Really yummy pizza place only 5 mins away called Isabella's. Breakfast was good but could improve by refilling empty eggs/pancakes quicker.

Stayed here as part of Intrepid tour. Hotel is on the edge but Uyuni is fairly small so just a 10 min walk to most of the restaurants and bars Room was comfortable and clean, the first night we had hot water, the second time warm water. There is a portable heater in each room which is needed in winter!...

The hotel is ok, comfortable beds, questionably painted walls... But it had a free breakfast and wifi in the lobby. But it's SO far from anything, at least a 20 minute walk for someone on a fast pace and given it was bloomin' freezing when we were there it just wasnt pleasant. I wouldn't stay here again, I'd pick somewhere...

This is an honest and decent place, not more, not less. It is somewhat on the periphery of the town, in a neighborhood where there is nothing at all. The Samay Wasi is modern but basic. Okay for one or two nights.

Stayed as part of a G Adventures trip. Our first one nighter was fine with good breakfast, basic but clean room and a good shower. The return visit, two nights after a 4WD trip in to the flats was not as good with smaller room and a shower that did not work. Breakfast was ok and the people nice enough....

Part of G adventure tour, this hotel is very basic, it do have wifi which is good consider we are in middle of nowhere. The resturants and shops are bit far so you would need a taxi which hotel can offer. walk is abt 20mins. Shower - hot water go off for few mins. Breakfast is not much variety and...
