The beds in the dorm was nice and comfy, but the included breakfast was very sugar and carbohydrate heavy. I stayed there one night and booked another night from when I returned from the 3-day Salar de Uyuni trip, however, the trip ended sooner than I expected and was able to change my bus ticket til the same night as...

I booked a bed in the dorms through Hostel World and it was ready when I showed up the night before my salt flat tour. I was in a six bed dorm with three bunks and the beds were quite sturdy. The room was warm at night and I was able to sleep with no problem. The room had an...

The breakfast was the best part of the hostel - it was very good. Unfortunately my room was freezing even with the heater they supplied. I had to improvise and use several cushions and pillows to block out the draft coming through the windows.The shower was simply awful, they did respond quickly when I reported it broken but only to...

Cold dirty hostel, with occasional hot water and wifi that doesn't work. All of this you can cope with however the disgracefully rude manager you cannot, she literally shouts at her guests, argues with them and barks orders across the courtyard. Very bizarre and unnecessary behaviour. Avoid if possible.

Centrally located in the main square, a nice hostel with great facilities. Hot showers throughout the day and heating throughout the night. Rooms are very clean and a basic breakfast is included in room price. Courtyard which acts as a sun trap during the day and you can stay after check out time to use the hostel facilities for an...

Its a good place to stay for one or two nights, the showers are warm and clean. The beds are very big and cosy, they gave us three blankets and there is also a heater in the dorm. The breakfast is nothing realy special. Next to the hostle is a realy good pizza restaurant.

I arrived very early in the morning to Uyuni in search of a friend who I was supposed to meet and was out of contact with. I went to Piedra blanca to see if she was there and was met by the woman who I believe runs the hostel with her husband. She informed me harshly that she was not...

Booked a private room for 1 night. Friendly staff, hot showers, clean restroom, heater in the room, a simple breakfast in the morning. What else can you ask for from a hostel? Wifi barely worked, that was the only bummer.

It is not clear whether the owners have given up on both life and the hostel or just the hostel itself. The two owners know that each day backpackers come in search of one night of cheap accommodation to shelter them from the freezing cold outside in Uyuni before they go on a tour of the salt flats and national...
