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

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.
