Piedra Blanca Backpackers Hostel Reviews

Piedra Blanca Backpackers Hostel is one of the best hostels we have ever had the pleasure staying at. A lot of thought has been put in making this place ideal for travelers on the move, and it shows. The place also is fairly new and run very efficiently.

The Location

This hostel is located in a quiet neighborhood a little bit away from downtown Uyuni, so you can get a good night's rest, but as Uyuni is a tiny town, the city centre is only fifteen minutes' walk away.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorm rooms are spacious and have wooden bunk beds. The beds are comfy and the bunk beds don't squeak. Each bed has two lockers -- one large locker for luggage and one small locker right next to the bed (bring two locks). The latter has a small hole at the top, so that you can lock away electronics while still being able to charge them. Each bed also has two electrical sockets, but no lamp.

Doors to the dorms are not locked and each floor has its own bathroom. Bathrooms are not gender-separated and have toilets, showers, and lots of sinks. The shower cubicles have lots of space to keep your clothes dry and hooks to hang things up. The water pressure is good and there is plenty of hot water; however, as Uyuni is a desert town, you are reminded not to waste water.

Common Spaces

There are a lot of common spaces starting with couches and lockers in the reception area, where you can hang out after check-out. There is another small common area next to the stairwell, and the main large common/dining area is on the first floor. This is also where the kitchen can be found and here the complimentary breakfast is served (including freshly made scrambled eggs). Additionally there is an outside terrace on the first floor with a place to dry your towels and chairs and a table.

There is also a small book exchange in the reception area and plenty of electrical sockets all over the place.
This is not a party hostel but a clean, relaxed place ideal for spending a night or two after coming back from a multi-day tour of the famous salt flats.


This is the perfect place to stay and chill before or after a salt-flat tour. It's a very clean hostel that ticks all the right boxes and has excellent Wi-Fi.

Location and Contact


• We are 10 blocks away from the bus stop or 7 blocks away from the train station.
• If you decide to walk (15 minutes from the bus stop), ask for Ferroviaria Avenue, then go to Loa Street, turn towards the train rails, cross them and continue one more block.
• A taxi is a good and not expensive option, too. You just have to know our precise address: Loa and Tomás Frías. If you're coming from the airport, this is the best way.
