Hostal La Casona

Chuquisaca 460, Potosí, Potosí, Bolivia

Among the very uninspiring collection of hotels and generally apathetic service that Potosí offers, La Casona is easily the best budget option despite its decidedly backpacker feel. The staff is hit and miss, but some are friendly and helpful, and the location is the best selling point—it's in a beautiful old building just a block and a half from the main plaza. The rooms are spartan at best, but those with a private bathroom are clean, warm, and more than sufficient as a base for a few days. The breakfast is forgettable; rather, eat out with the money you saved by not bothering with one of the bigger, more expensive hotels. The Wi-Fi is better in some locations than others; check before settling into your room.
