The Bacoo Hostel is centrally located and very near the bus station. The front entrance is two meters wide and opens to allow several big motor bikes to park securely. A cheap dorm bed costs 45bs and includes breakfast. I stayed at Bacoo for a week and have a lot to say for and against the hostel. Some of the... More

I got recommended this hostel because it was nice and chilled out. It was a really sweet place. I splashed out and got a private room so it was great. Bed very average and not that secure but that was fine. The hot water was a frequent problem but after telling the staff they fix it straight away. It had... More

Good points: Nice chill out outdoors area, friendly barman with cheap drinks and sociable bar. Large comfy beds. Bad points: The most terrible breakfast of hard bread and warm water for tea. Our room was not secure and good be easily pushed open by an intruder. We informed the hostel and they did nothing to rectify this. Overall: average

Only stayed at Bacoo for two nights and can only judge it for what I used. The bed was high for a bunk, wide and comfortable but if I was any taller it wouldn't be too good as my toes were going off the end already. I'm only 5'7. The showers were clean and set up well, they just lacked... More

This hostel ticks all the boxes with a good location (5-6 min walk from the central square and bridge), helpful laid back staff and decent toilet/shower facilities. They have the big 16 bed room which is pretty crowded but Very cheap, I opted for a 6 bed room for part of my stay which was marginally more expensive but REALLY... More

This was a last minute and i must say very cheap choice for our stay in la paz. Decent staff, grimy smoky bar but the friendly guests and nice garden patio areas made up for some of thelacking aspects.

If you can manage to sleep on 1 hour a night this is the place for you. The rooms are arranged round the bar and that is all you can hear till the music goes off. Then everyone sits taking outside your room on the garden area until 5-6 in the morning. It's loud the walls are thin and even... More
