Stayed here in the B&B building in a private double room en suite. The room was damp and smelled bad from mould. The walls were dirty the bathroom was dirty, no shower curtain so everything was wet. The curtains in the room were filthy and damp too. Location is good, five mins walk from San Francisco Square but that is... More

This was our second time in La Paz having previously stayed at Wild Rover. We picked this hostel for it's proximity to the bus station and it comes across as a party hostel in the same ilk as Wild Rover and Loki. The guy on reception really needs to learn how to interact with customers - eye contact, not mumbling... More

We stayed here for a week and were super impressed! When we had problems, desk man Fabio was there to help us out. He made sure we were comfortable and remained a smiling, friendly face throughout our stay. The smaller "hotel" is quiet and nice, the bigger hostel next door is huge and fun, both set in beautiful historical buildings.... More

I was surprised at how clean, organized and friendly the space was! The beds were quite comfortable, clean and warm; however, not all the outlets worked in each dorm room (a small inconvinience). Even though the hostel permits smoking inside, the smoke didn't really reach the dorm rooms. Their social spaces are filled with young travelers, sipping their free nightly... More

Stayed here one night didn't get to have breakfast as early flight but comfortable bed and warm blankets. Free beer is a bonus to the stay..Good atmosphere and great drinking games!right next to bus terminal which is handy for coming and going. Internet as everywhere else in Bolivia is sometimes erratic but mostly good for me!

We stayed in an 8 Bed dorm which was very comfy. Breakfast consists of pancakes and hot drinks. We, however could not access the kitchen in our... More

This was my worst experience at hostels during my 3 months in South America. I arrived at 5AM and of course I did not expect a room at that time. I toured the town as I waited for my room to open up for the 2 PM check in time. Being tired I was ready for a shower and a... More
