The Posada de la Abuela is situated in the main tourist area of La Paz, but still not far from the bustle of the city and the main sights and museums. Most rooms are around an internal courtyard, but there's little noise, except maybe from the early departures. We found the staff helpful, friendly and efficient, and the breakfast was... More

For the price this is a good option. The location is right next to the witches market and it is easy to get around. Breakfast is included is pretty substantial. The man who works front desk in the evening/night is very helpful and nice. I cant say the same for the one during the day. I would consider him the... More

Could have a nice courtyard if it wasn't plastered with tourist agency ads. Room was small. Electric heater was noisy. Limited outlets and my CPAP machine could not be used. Terrible TV reception. Restaurant was okay but prices a bit steep. Younger, international clientele, mainly on treks, were there. A high school group was very noisy in the lobby two... More

Great breakfast, many things to choose. Hotel is in a good neighbourhood, very close to everything you want to see in La Paz. Rooms are quite small and don't have a window. Breakfast includes many thing, such as eggs, bread, fresh juice and cornflakes.

We had a private double bedroom with en suite. The hostel is quite large our room was tidy but poor shower. The breakfast was really quite good, had a decent selection. Staff seemed friendly and the location was good. I would use this hostel again if I returned to la paz

When I checked in, the receptionist gave me a quote for an one night stay. When I checked out the following morning, a different receptionist asked me to give more than what was quoted. When I tried to clarify the initial quote the receptionist gave me the day before, the morning receptionist gave even a higher cost than the quote... More

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
