About Backpackers Potosi Hostel
NOTICE: As we are available for bookings for same day (less 24 hours bookings), we advise you that bookings for same day could have a modification on the type of rooms/beds selected. So, we guarantee you will have a bed waiting for you, but maybe no the price (you could be moved for a different room). It is because HostelBookers accept bookings with no previous requests to us (automatic confirmations).
