Honestly one of the most loose hostels I've ever been to, it's known as a party hostel for a reason but aside from an incredibly rowdy bar scene, the beds and showers are dope, the staff super friendly and the hostel is incredibly helpful in arranging tours for death road and rurrenbacque. The manager Jack is a good man and... More

Although relatively expensive by Bolivian standards (70 Bolivianos), you get what you pay for. Great rooms, perpetually clean bathrooms and spaces, well stocked tv room, pool table and a wonderful bar to let your hair down after a rough few days on Bolivian busses. Breakfasts is somewhat meagre and there is no kitchen use included, but good meals can be... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in 4 bed dorm when we were in La Paz. The staff throughout from the reception, the bar & the cleaners were all very helpful and friendly. The room itself was very clean and cleaned everyday. The bathrooms were spotless and the cleaners were continuously cleaning them throughout the day. We never had a... More

In short words it is a big, very big, clean hostel. And it has good security service and lockers in the rooms and reception. For a hostel that size and with hostels in more than one city I had expected a good shower and a good wifi! Both disapointing! Shower was always cold and the wind from time to time... More

Stayed here as friends had already booked in and was expecting the worst. But I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's a party hostel but I was in 4 bed dorm toward the back courtyard and found it pretty quiet, quite spacious, light and airy. There were large lockers for your bags, comfy beds, a few sockets for charging things but... More

Long gone are the days of the English empire and her colonies abroad, or so I thought. This hostel is the epitome of why travellers have such a bad reputation. The building and facilities were above average although the wifi was very slow. Staff seamed helpful when not involved in race rows and the prices of food and drinks weren't... More

It's the biggest Wild Rover available and as a result it's also the craziest, loudest and most popular. You need to realise that if you stay here, you won't really sleep that much. But if you're coming with the intention of drinking and going out, then look nowhere else! The beds are very comfy, lots of charging units in the... More

Quite easy: do you wanna party? If yes: go here. If you need a rest: avoid. It's like walking into a 24 hr British pub with drunk young 20-ers. Might be your thing, or it might not. The private room was great, the dorms looked great and the bathrooms were very, very clean (despite some previous reviews). The bar and... More

The dorms have incredibly comfortable mattresses. After months of budget hostels, the bed I slept in felt remarkably nicer. I slept very well. Despite the party atmosphere, the music from the bar was almost inaudible from the room. I was honestly impressed by the rooms cleanliness. The patios are spacious and have nice views of La Paz. I made quite... More
