Staying at the Hostel International Salar de Uyuni

Travel guide > Uyuni

Considered by many travelers to be the cleanest (as well as one of the most accommodating) hostels in South America, the Hostel International Salar de Uyuni is the perfect place to stay for travelers and backpackers looking to explore the town and the nearby salt flats. For the most part, the staff members at the hostel all speak English, which is useful for any traveler whose Spanish may not be up to par.

You can find both shared and private rooms that have hot water, something that many hostels around the world cannot boast. While the majority of the rooms are twins, quads and doubles are also available. An overnight laundry service is available, and this is something that any traveler (especially backpackers who spent any amount of time walking and dirtying their clothes) can appreciate. Breakfast is also available, and you can have it arranged for whenever you leave.

This hostel also has a common room, a pleasant place to lounge and watch the cable television. It makes for a nice place to relax and unwind before grabbing dinner at one of the local eateries.

The Hostel International Salar de Uyuni is located very close to everything in town, including the bus depot, the train station (four lines from which trains arrive) and the migration office. The hostel is also just a short walk to the clock tower in the center of town, a place that has become quite an attraction and a great photo opportunity. The streets of the town offer you a great opportunity to explore and get acquainted with the unique culture of the small town.

The friendly staff can also help you arrange tours of the Salar that pick you up at the front door of the hostel.

Of course, not every traveler wants to stay in a hostel. While the prices can't be beat – it is often just a few dollars a night to stay in most hostels – there can be something of a lack of privacy. Also, since most of the rooms in hostels are shared, there is a chance that you won't have as much time to yourself as you might wish.

In case you decide that the hostel life isn't for you, check out to find the best deal on hotels in the area. This can save you both money and time, precious commodities while you are planning your trip.
