People should be aware that this is more of a guesthouse than a hostel; it's one of the strangest HI hostels I've stayed at for that reason. Don't expect the usual services/facilities you would expect from other HI hostels. Having said that, the place is fine if you're just looking for a decent place to stay for a night or two - the facilities are fine (if a bit old) and the breakfast is good. It's a pretty old, cavernous place, so the atmosphere is a little forbidding.

Echt gute Lage und gute Hotel hier in Potosi. Richtig heisse und starke Duschen - so nach dem unglaublichen Minenbesuch oder als wir von der Salar-Expedition aus Uyuni in der Nacht zurueckfuhren - und dann am anderen Morgen das reichhaltige Fruehstuecksbuffet
