Wandering La Paz, we found this little hotel in a guidebook. Isaak was frienndly, and there appeared to be 2 guests having shots of tequila at the tiny hotel bar. We arrived late at night and so we really just needed a place to crash. It's not for everyone, it is decorated with "thrift junk" ie an old toilet used... More

Great place, great people., great location...great service , great informations....all what you want to know about La Paz is THERE. We loved to be there it's so different ! Un endroit particulier pour des voyageurs particuliers. Pas de confort 4* mais effectivement un service 4* et quel charme ! what else ?

This is like an I Spy book and although we didn't stay here, we met a couple who did and went back twice. We can't even explain all the different things that have been collected over the last 40 years. This is truly an iconic place and a must see event. It's the most unique place I have ever seen...

I spent two months in La Paz and found this place to be one of its real gems, its in a great location, Isaak and Jorge are great people with outstanding local knowledge and are such good hosts, and the hotel itself is a truly special place that can not be described in words and can only be experienced.

If you’re just even just the slightest bit eccentric or just looking for something different (really different) the Yeneka is for you. I stayed for over a week and every time I looked around, I noticed something different. The décor consists of an amazing (an understatement) of memorabilia depicting the roots of Mexico. Agriculture, mining, the desert, the sea, life... More

We stayed here for three nights last week (Jan 2014) at the suggestion of a fun couple we meet at the Hotel Cabo (a similar type hotel). So much fun to explore Mexico and its charm. If you are cool staying at a funky place for very little money you cannot do better in La Paz, maybe all of Baja... More

Stayed here from 12/27/13 to 12/30 and then again when we came back from Loreto on 1/4. Paid 480 pesos a night for 2 people. Roughly $36. (18 bucks per person). I really liked this place.. It was very unique... Met several people during breakfast while we stayed there. They have free breakfast which consisted of coffee, crackers/biscuits, jams, cereal... More

Probably one of the most schizophrenic places we've stayed in, Hostel Yeneka stays on the right side of crazy. Ignore the hotel's one star rating - its staff are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are big and the beds comfortable. The courtyard, where a basic, but free, breakfast is served, is stuffed full of bric a brac, resembling a charity... More

Greeted with tequilla and shown to our room "erotica" we had to fight our way through what has to be the best collection of random goodies on the globe! This hotel is basically mad as a box of frogs and we quite frankly loved our time here! 2 min walk to the beach, comfy beds and good wifi. The communal... More
