After 3 weeks of gritty hostels and campsites, we found ourselves in Estrella Andina! The staff was very friendly and even gave us an extra breakfast when we arrived early for check-in. Breakfast itself is amazing with a variety of fruits, grains, juices, and a cook that will make eggs just how you want them! Wifi is strong in the... More

I think I like everything about this place. I go with groups, so I went there about 6 times. The desk staff is helpful. The breakfast is very good. I really like that in every room there are different wall paintings. Shower and bed good too. On the top floor where the restaurant is, you can grab a good view... More

We were not convinced by this well-located, albeit noisy, highly decorated hotel. Front desk staff is competent but the place can be quit cold and not that good-value for Bolivia. Next time, we shall look for another option.

Hard to find at first, this hostel is perfectly situated in the heart of La Paz near the Witches Market, numerous restaurants, the beautiful cathedral, shopping and more! The travel agent inside the hostel helped us to book the Barracuda Biking Tour which was the highlight of our trip. Although the wifi was slow and construction was taking place during... More

Stayed here for two nights. Room was on second level. Receptionist was very helpful. Gave us lots of info for where to go and what to do. Room was decent but was dated. Painted walls, small tv in the room with cable. We had a 4 bedroom private room with an ensuite. Hot water took about 5 minutes to get... More

Stayed as part of a tour group for 3 nights. The hostel is located close to the centre so a great base. Rooms were comfortable with all day hot water. Breakfast on fifth floor with city wide views. Good wifi. Would stay here again.

This hotel offers good rooms, great breakfast in a panoramic restaurant, all day hot water, free internet, cable TV and if you are lucky, heater in your room! We stayed for 6 days in late August and it was quite cold in the room till we asked for and got an electric heater. It is a fabulously quirky place with... More

The location of the hostel is good. You can walk to the Witches Marked and the Prado by foot. There is a lot going on on the street where the hotel is located, many people, many cars.. actually we did not feel very safe at night. The staff at the hotel is really friendly. They always remember your room number,... More
