Great location. Right in the middle of everything, semi quiet street, lots of good eateries around. All the rooms open on the central courtyard, so noise could be a problem. Also hotel only takes cash,which was a suprise to me and a few others when I was in the offfice getting my key,

We had a very quick stay in La Paz and this hotel was perfect. Clean room and hot water. Service was very good. Also, the internet connection was excellent. We missed the breakfast, unfortunately, because we had a super early departure.

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
