We stayed here for one night while passing through La Paz. Upon our arrival we were shown one room where there was garbage in the corner of the room that still had not been cleaned from the last guests. The second room we had was clean. That evening we were awaken at 3 am by a stranger knocking on our... More

Pros: Great location Delicious breakfast They have lockable wardrobes for luggage Cons: Wifi is appallingly slow and their router has been hacked so you are constantly 'web-jacked' when browsing. Over-priced ($42pn) The courtyard rooms may be better but ours was out the back. Dark and dingy during the day. Illuminated by corridor lighting at night (no curtain to block it... More

We stayed just two nights. The location, breakfast and the attendants were fine. The room was old, the sink of our room was clogged. They didnt clean the room in theses 2 nights. This hostal is near the Witch market, the Plaza San Francisco and the red cablr car station,

A Very nice hotel in the heart of the touristic area! Very well located to reach all interesting areas in La plaza. Warm water, nice bed,...Try to book room 214 which is much more quiet . Price around 40 eur ( 300 bolivianos). Not the cheapest but you are in La Paz.

This hostal is very centric yet quiet. The rooms are a bit dark but clean. The breakfast is quite good also. We stayed two nights there. There are three travel agencies in the internal patio of the building, this can be quite handy. The location is a great starting point to explore the city center.

If you are looking for a centrally located hotel, this is it. You will feel you are amongst the "locals". The rooms do not have windows. You must give your key to the front desk if you want your room cleaned. This is a cash only business. The shower is VERY small. No problems whatsoever with the Wi-Fi. Being so... More

The breakfast was good but after 1 hour there was not so much food anymore. The room is big but very old. The bathroom is old and not... More

A nice overall setting, lovely hot water and good breakfast but troubles with wifi. Location was a short walk from San Fransisco church, loads of tour operators around and some good quirky restaurants.

This hostal is located in the center of La Paz which is quite convenient. The hostal is however sold as a hotel on various websites and it does definitely not meet the standards of a hotel. The rooms are very, very basic and noisy. All rooms face a courtyard with tour operators etc so lots of people are walking in... More

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,
