I stayed in Hostal Republica 13/3- 15/3, the environment is very nice and the front desk staff are extreamly friendly, but I really DISAPPOINTED with the manager's behaviour. on 13/3, I washed my towel and few cloths during shower, when I was going to hang those wet cloths, the manager passed by and SHOUTED heavily at me: "here is HOTEL...

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

After reading multiple reviews describing the hostel's 'tranquil' atmosphere, we were somewhat disappointed to discover that there seemed to be no atmosphere at all. The cobblestoned courtyard in the centre of the hostel could have been buzzing with life but no-one seemed too keen to venture outside to drink or meet other guests. Maybe partly because the rooms were admittedly... More

Have stayed here a couple of times over the last few years and it is now looking a little tired. Staff have always been helpful to me and the overall security is good. Could now do with a bit of a makeover.

Our only option arriving late we paid 270bs (54 can) for a private room. We were looking to finish our vacation at a higher end hostel. The ambience was pleasant and room was adequate. We had planned on 3 nights here. After waking up in the morning I bought a coffee from the cafeteria for 10bs. (double the regular cost)... More

We have just left this hostel after staying 1 night and after reading the other comments you would think the owner would do something about the receptionist. After checking out a few hostels we came to republica, great tranquil setting and after the receptionist told us it would be 60b pp for a dorm including breakfast we decided to stay.... More

It has taken me too long to write this, we stayed here in August 2010 and I have only just started reviewing. By the look of other reviews it still has the same owners. When we booked it , it seemed a great way to finish our first trip to Peru and Bolivia. This was a mistake bigger than thinking... More
