As a young traveler exploring La Paz alone, I probably wouldn't recommend the Hostal La Posada de la Abuela for young solo travelers unless you were desparate for a nice quite, private place to stay where you won't be bothered by others. When I was there at the beginning of March, there were primarily middle-aged couples that were enjoying the... More

I stayed here for two nights. The lobby area is a very impressive 3-story structure with wrought iron, flowers, and some nice wooden furniture. Located IN the tourist area, so easy to get to great restaurants, shopping, main plazas. Desk staff speaks English and will happily carry your bags up the stairs to your room or store them if need...

This hostal was awesome. We arrive late however the boss waits for us and help us to carry our luggage. The room was huge for the 3 of us (a 4beded room). Clean room, great wifi connection. However the bathroom was a bit tiny. When we woke up the next day and head out of the room, the whole place... More

We stayed for two nights, Monday and Wednesday. They were kind enough to hold some of our belongings while we traveled out of town for Tuesday. Clean room. Great wifi connection. Very cheap price. Tour companies right in the lobby. Continental breakfast included. Dinner restaurant affordable and safe. Not a luxury property, but far better than expected for the price... More

We stayed at Hostal Posada for 3 nights during our stay in La Paz. Unfortunately on our first night both my husband and I came down with terrible food poisoning after eating at a nearby restaurant. The hostel staff were extremely kind and called a doctor to come to the hotel as our condition continued to worsen and let us... More

I have given the hotel an "average" score but I think it should be a "good" however this isn't an option! The location is great - right in the old town near the Witches market. It is a pretty basic hotel - I stayed here 4 nights on my first way through La Paz and another 3 nights when I... More

One day before checkin the staff had been advised via email that , coming with a bus from titicaca, check-in would be after 5 p.m (estimated arrival time at bus terminal was... More

The hostel is situated near cathedral San Francisco; a very nice location; Lots of marketstands and little shops in the neighbourhood. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We even got a little breakfast snack when we left early to catch a flight! We can really recommand this place!

Good Location off Linares Market street and around the corner from San Francisco church. Helpful friendly staff & clean rooms, bathrooms & common areas - not immaculate but reflected in cost per night. Consistent hot shower & quiet for La Paz. Wifi didn't each our room, average speed (for Bolivia) in common areas.
