Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice hostel with all necessities for a comfortable long stay inside majestic Sajama National Park. Owners are very nice and friendly people, who are ready to help you with everything. Hostel has a kitchen, hot water and a lot of blankets, which are very useful during cold nights. Can definitely recommend it during your exploration of beautiful nature and fauna of the altiplano.

We stayed here for one night arranged by Banjo Tours. The traditional cabins are very nice and private, but ours was very small. The bed had lots of warm blankets. The hosts were very friendly. We had breakfast and dinner there, and the food was good. You must ask for hot water if you want to take a shower, which we unfortunately didn't learn until later. They did give us a heater for the room which kept it quite warm.

Stayed here a total of 5 nights with some friends on a climbing/hiking trip. The private cabins were super cool, had very warm beds, and a nice clean bathroom. There was no heater in the cabin but that did not matter at all because they give you tons of sheets and wool comforters, we were all plenty warm. No sleeping bag required. The shower was hot and toilets worked well. In the common area there is a dining area and a little store that sells drinks, snacks, wine, beer. They also sell camp fuel (like the stuff that is compatible with lightweight backpacking stoves, jetboil, etc), and food that is great for backpacking trips. Breakfast was free every morning, and they offered lunch and dinner at low cost. If you need to leave at 2am to start a climb or do whatever, you can request breakfast and they will have a non-perishable breakfast with a thermos full of hot water+instant coffee/tea waiting for you on the table so you can eat before you go! Incredible. The food was the best in town. To make the experience even better, the owner and his family were super nice. The owner has tons of climbing route knowledge and he rents climbing gear. You could show up to this place in a swimsuit and rent everything you need to climb Sajama. If I ever visit the town of Sajama in the future I will 100% stay here again. Would recommend! Get lots of Bolivianos in the big city, this place is cash only.

There are two hostals in Sajama village. This one has better food (breakfast is usually included and even has fresh fruit), dinner is extra but always includes a good soup. It has really cosy cabañas and for a small addition, you also get an electric heater. Of course, as you can expect in such a remote place, things are rather basic - the showers are rather luke warm than hot - but what convinced me of this place (also in comparison with the other) is the very kind owners. Thank you, Eliseo and family! When asking for internet, they always provided a hotspot (not suitable for videocalls but basic communication), always arranged transportation (e.g. to the hot springs) for a reasonable price, and on top Eliseo was a good mountain guide himself (equipment being included in the tour price). Big recommendation!

Room Tip: Go to the further hot springs (best by car) which are natural and just 15Bs pp for sunset.

If you have other options, avoid this place! The staff is very unfriendly; I am not going to mention the cold as when you go there you expect it anyway, however just be aware there are not heaters on the premises so you’ll need your sleeping bag. The staff is very unfriendly; the owner is rude and doesn’t even say hello in the morning when you greet him. His wife(?) and the girl helping are also very impolite. Don’t expect WiFi (supposedly it’s from 5PM to 9PM). You can ask for it, they’ll ask you to wait for a couple of minutes but it’s never going to happen (you can ask as many times as you want). OR, they’ll turn the WiFi signal on but they’ll cut the internet access. Honestly avoid this place; there are other places around that for sure are much better.

This hostel has absolutely dead vibe, no positive energy inside. The biggest reason is the staff who really do not care about their guests anymore. They do not smile, do not greet you and you feel that they do not even want to be there or even worse have any guests there!!! I believe the owner got used to having guests from all the agencies automatically. We stayed only for one night and just to use the wifi. There is no other reason to pay twice more than in other places. There are so many beautiful huts in the village, newer and bigger. You just cannot book it online but it is easy to find a very good and cheap accommodation once you get to the village. We paid in other hostel 70 BS for two of us and 15 BS for dinner ( Sajama was 120 BS for two persons and 30 BS for dinner).

Why don’t sleep here? 1 - The price depends of your face. When we came, we payed 60 bolivianos for each people (x 5 people), the day after we met 4 people and they payed 40 Bolivianos each. 2 - The kitchen that you can use is dirty and inadequate. Please look my picture. No knife, no forks, no glasses, only 2 chairs... one bed ? Really, in the kitchen!! 3 - No heating in the room, in the kitchen and in the “common area”. The owner (Eliseo) refused to lend us extra blankets. We were alone in the hostel, blankets were available... 4 - Check OUT at 6 of the morning. We came early and did a check in at 6am. The owner never ask us to pay an extra for the early check in. But we are ALONE in the hostel. The evening before leave, the owner say “you came at 6am this morning, also tomorrow morning the check out is at 6am of the morning”. Really??? Yes the rooms are pretty and nice decorate but the owner is very unpleasant. Everywhere in Sajama you will find better place to stay and sleep.

My friend and I went there because we read some good posts about the hostel and because it has WiFi. It did have WiFi and the rooms were not bad. But the toilet (the shared one) was horrible. We stayed there for 2 nights and both nights the toilet was blocked. In the second night it was so bad that the water of the toilet flush flushed over. With my bad timing I had to go to the toilet very badly in this night - just what to do when the water is overflowing? There was ofc no other toilet available, we asked the owner the day before. Luckily for me the village was small and the nature not far away. So to say, it is the most expensive hostel in town with the worst toilet of the town. An absolute no go for me. Ps: toiletpaper is not included. Dont forget to take some with you. The owner didn't stock it up even when asked. Apart from that the owner is very unfriendly. Not just to his customers but also to the town people. There are many other hostels around, hosted by the lovely villagers. They cost half as much for the same service (25 bolivianos per night per person) with better toilets. The dinner at Sajama hostel is also overprized. It costs 30 bs per person. At other places it costs 15 to 20, for the same portion sizes. Don't be surprised if you don't find informations (homepages, ...) of other hostels on the internet. Just walk through the town and ask locals where to sleep. They'll point you to one of the small hostels, very well possible that it will open just for you as there are not many tourists in town since the national parc entry was increased by the government some time ago.

We stayed here as part of a tour of Sajama and Uyuni. We loved the location and the little huts were super quaint. It was cold and the shower was very basic; but in a remote area like this, it's understandable. We had good and warming meals in the restaurant.
