You could probably save a couple of Bolivians if you searched around, but I was recovering from a stolen passport and time was my object, not money. So - bed OK, electric hot water was one of the better ones I've had the displeasure of using around the world, everything clean enough for my low standards. I wish the pillow... More

Very basic rooms, dark and run down. Watch out if you stay for many nights, you'll have to specifically ask for room cleaning. They'll charge you for the service regardless and are not transparent about the fact that you have to ask for it. Breakfast is very basic. Staff are helpful. Good location. Habitaciones muy básicas.

The location is pure center (Sagarnaga street), nearby you will find travel agencies, laundry services, taxies, exchange offices, the main spots of the city, so that is a PLUS. Apart from that the hostel is DIRTY. I felt bad even lying in my bed. I do NOT recommend having a breakfast there (unless a banana and a coffee is enough... More

Price is not the lowest.. but the hostal is fine.. the best thing is the location, close to linares street and lot of travel agencies arround. Weak points.. the bathroon, the shower.. i couldn't take a hot bath in the 4 days i was there. Wifi connection is low... breaskfast is good for what u are paying for.

One of the cheaper options in La Paz, we thought it is a nice hotel because of all the good reviews. But unfortunately had different experiences. The hotel is seemingly catering mainly for Israelians. The evenings, nights and early mornings are a whole party with loud music, shouting and door slamming. Even with earplugs it was impossible to sleep. Constantly... More

This hostal is in the centre of gringo town, so it's close to many useful travel agencies, the artisanal markets and the witches' market. We thought it might be really noisy, but the club next door seems to shut by 11pm, and it's very quiet after that. The room and loo were fairly clean and the hot water was working.... More

Duration: 2 nights Good: clean, safe, free wifi, fixed PC, free information, breakfast included (good but simple, with free coffee or tea), not noisy. The best is the location, right in the middle of Sagarnaga St. and few min for San Francisco church. breakfast time is good and reasonable. You can leave your bag in deposit. Bad: staff are good...

I stayed here only 1 night because I pretty much hated it. First of all I thought it was way overpriced, my room just felt dirty, you know what I mean? I think it was one of the nicer ones as well as it was on a high floor with a view. It was very shabby and mildewed. And as... More
