We stayed here for 3 nights in an 8 bed dorm and had a great time. Set in a nice old building with a lot of character. Bar is perfect with good free beer (one per night stayed) and cosy atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location excellent, very close to bus station and walking distance to centre of La... 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 here as it was recommended by a friend. The hostel is however divided into 2 buildings, one with private rooms and the other building with the bigger dorms 3 buildings down. 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

After three nights on buses and trains, I was ready for a good sleep, which I got. The private room, although a bit spartan and cold, had a comfortable, warm bed, and a hot shower. The staff at the front desk were so-so, and although I paid in full on arrival, there was a problem when I checked out (that... More

Fairly basic but cheap accommodation. We treated ourselves to a private room which felt necessary in chaotic & wonderful La Paz! Love the micro brewery on site for when you don't feel like trekking to the bars (especially when still acclimatising to the altitude) The free pancake breakfast was a very welcome surprise, loved them!!

Visited in Summer 2013. A vibrant hostel, for sure. Beds were comfortable, good hot showers and a really great pancake (unlimited!) brekkie. The larger dorms were nothing special, but still we were grateful to get a bed rather than spending the night on the roads one of Bolivia's awful overnight bus services. The noise was quite bad as there were... More
