After 6 months staying in hostals in South America, never have I stayed in a hostal so unprofessional and disgraceful. Do yourself a favor and stay in a hostal that treats you right and gets your money's worth. For those prices you should get much better treatment. Here are the details: Arrived in La Paz and checked in with another... More

Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. By the end it was only me in the room. 65 bolivianos per night. The place is clean, well located and has character. The staff speak good English. There were lockers in the dorm. The WiFi is really bad, though, and only works in the reception area or the first courtyard. Even then it... More

I stayed here for one night in April. The room was basic and overpriced for what you got-no lockers and a very basic breakfast. The front desk was friendly and helpful with giving advice on what to do in La Paz.

Double room with private bathroom for $220 is very expensive for around here. It was nice though. However, for that price you would expect the WiFi to be good! Not only did the WiFi keep dying, but you could only use it in two public spaces (very limited radius). Paper thin walls too.

My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights in Hostal Republica in 3 different periods of our trip in Bolivia. The first time we arrive there we found the place very pretty, worth the 25€/night we paid. The room and shared toilet were ok too. Though we soon realized how unfriendly and incompetent the hostel stuff was. They made us think... More

While I enjoyed my stay here there were quite a few things that I did not like. First of all the food in the restaurant was quite bad, all except the pizza, and more expensive then the rest of the city. Although the staff was actually quite good the owner is not. I worked in the restaurant taking orders and... More
