Hostal Naira was full for our fifth night in La Paz so we had to move and ended up in the Estrella Andina. From the first moment we really liked this place. Staff was very friendly and English speaking. The rooms have a great view over the city and the walls and doors are painted with Bolivian scenes. The rooftop... More

I rate this as very good, not because it's a fantastic hostal, but for the price we paid we got a nice room, friendly service at the front desk, effective wifi (in our room, no less), plus a very central location for a first time visitor. We didn't choose this hostal, but rather it was the starting point for a... More

We stayed in a private room with bathroom. The shower was very hot and room clean. It also had a TV which was good for watching BBC news world. Wifi worked perfectly in the room which is unusual for La Paz! Breakfast was extensive, fruit, eggs, pancakes! Next to Witches Market and five min walk from lots of restaurants. Staff... More

We stayed in at Estrella Andina for a total of 6 nights. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and dishes to try. The hotel is a short 5 minute walk to the San Francisco church and even shorter walk to all the shops. The breakfast... More

The hotel is central to most sites in the old part of town and is within easy asking distance to these. There are many eateries nearby to. Staff were very helpful and spoke English, making the stay very comfortable. There are open areas (terraces and lounge areas) to sit and relax without needing to be in your room. Rooms are... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it very good value for money compared with other options in La Paz. A great location, with most major sights within walking distance, a large double room with hot shower and cable TV, along with a fantastic breakfast selection make this a top choice. The top floor restaurant has great... More

Stayed 8 nights at Estrella Andina for work and travel. It's good value for the money in my opinion. Next time I may choose another location just to have a varied experience in La Paz. This hotel is in the touristy area. If you go towards Plaza Avaroa direction then it's not so congested. Pros: good location for tourist attractions... More
