This brand-new hotel in Potosi is a very nice colonial big house in Potosi located just 100m from main Plaza.

You want to discover Potosi and the mines, make Hostal La Casona your place to explore this magnificent city.
Central location, english speaking staff and if you have some cold, they have heaters for rent.
My friends stayed here, and they said that it was a no more than average hostel. Cramped rooms, cold, and dark interior. No breakfast served. The price is about average, so I guess you get what you pay for.
Right next to the hostel is the office of Victoria Tours. They offer good tours into the mines with the guide Jaime Marca. His office is to the left of the entrance of the hostel, and just knock on the door or wait for him there if you want to chat.
By the time I reached Potosi, I though it was time that I splurged a little bit, so I actually got a private room with a TV!!!! Imagine that....
The best thing about this place is that it is safe and the owners are very friendly and helpful when it comes to planning your stay in Potosi. I did have my own clean room, but the rooms were. However, considering the altitude of Potosi -4090m - and the time of my visit - May - this should not come as a surprise. The fact that they offer you HOT water and clean bathrooms certainly means a lot as well. The breakfast is small - bread, butter, marmelade, and coffe/tea/coca tea - is small, put it hits the spot.
The location is also good, it is close to the place and to the street Padilla (where most restaurants lay).
Single without private bath: 40bs

not too much to say about it. The price (17 Bolivianos) was ok, it was a quite cold night however, as there are normally no radiators in Bolivia, and Potosi is in winter nights (August) not really warm ;-)).. but we were used to it already !
While in Potosi i looked for a nice place to stay. As in Potosi is very cold you have to sleep with a lot of covers, and if you have to take a shower you have to do with hot water. indeed this hostel offers this and more.
Excellent attention, nice hostel, it`s like a colonial house. they give you the keys of the main door and of your room. so you feel like at home. i mean you don`t have to ask for your keys or ring the doorbell, just use the keys and get into your room.
In spite of what i said, this hostel has a beautiful view of the Beautiful Mountain (SUMAJ ORCKO).
It includes a delicious breakfast and the most important thing that it is located a few blocks from the main square (10 de noviembre, and the Money house).
vous devriez voir le devant de cet hotel.... un immeuble en renovation... ca vaut le cout de rentrer pour y decouvrir un beau petit hotel tres propre mais aussi tres froid a cause de l'altitude....
une petite terrase interieur . toilette commune, chambre a 1-2-3 personnes...pas trop cher mais pas vraiment d'eau chaude.... lonely planet l'indique mais il n'en a pas....
They have a great patio, and rooms are basic, but clean. Hot water, but not all day long...
Ils ont un super patio, et les chambres sont basiques, mais propres. Eau chaude, mais pas toute la journee..

Not the kind of place I love to stay at, but surely a very comfortable hotel in a lovely, old, colonial building, in the heart of the city.
In the rooms the heating was working in such a way that I could do the washing since clothes got dry in few hours (sssth! don't tell the manager...). During the night I had to switch the heating off to avoid to dry myself.
The staff was really helpful, although a bit too formal.
The building itself!
It seemed EVERYONE wanted to stay at Residential Felcar up the street at Serrudo #345, but we couldn't get a room there so this bigger and less personal hotel did the trick just fine. The Felcar was highly reccomended in Lonely Planet and it was just swamped with taxi's full of gringos vying for rooms!
I'm sure there were many places like the one we stayed. The rooms were easily as nice as those at the Felcar (we had friends staying there!) though they were a bit noisy with quite a bit of traffic coming by. My tip is to get a room on the top floor and preferably away from the corner intersection. At least then you cut down on the traffic as it's only one street.
