Great vibe, comfy bed, hot shower, cheap price, great owners, breakfast with fruit! It's not the Ritz, but it's $10. It's not a party hostel, so if you're looking to get plastered with a bunch of other drinkers it's not the place - I had such a good night's sleep here, I didn't even need earplugs!

We stayed at the hostel for three nights. The owners are really friendly and fun. The rooms are nice and clean. Good breakfast, nice tv room with lots of dvd-s and great common area. Terrace on the rooftop with an amazing view. They offer a great mine tour as well and give a percentage to the miners.

Driving in central potosi is not for the faint of heart. In hindsight I'd find somewhere to stay outside of the city center. Tons of tiny one way streets barely big enough for a car. And finding this hostel took us over 30 min even with google maps because you just kept going in circles. They don't have parking tho...
