The building that houses the hostel is built around several courtyards in a very nice colonial style. The rooms are clean, showers work well. The rooms are all pretty simple and don't really provide anything extra apart from a place to sleep. Overall it is also on the expensive side for what you get. We staid in private rooms with... More

The staff were not very friendly or helpful, and one of the beds was broken. Showers were powerful and hot, and the rooms were warm. Breakfast is included and pretty big - it's worth paying for a private room to get the better breakfast with eggs!

This hostel is recently renovated and looks great! Lovely garden area and nice rooms. Location is perfect. The only thing is it isn't finished yet! We stayed in a twin with shared bathroom. The bathroom has no space to put your clothes or towels. Also the matrasses were terrible, two thin ones on top of eachother... There is wifi around... More

When I first arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, attractive courtyard areas and nicely sized twin room. The next morning was dissapointing however when we were sent down the road to another (not particularly nice) hostel for breakfast. When we returned we asked about the laundry service and were told it was out of service and we would... More

I actually didn't want to go here, but some other hostals nearby were full because of the celebrations for some virgin (I believe it was Guadelupe). From the start the service was lousy.. I had to pay directly for the room without seeing it, and actually it isn't cheap at all (90 bolivianos). I felt I did't have an option... More

Although the building itself was very old and full of character, I have never met such unfriendly staff in all my time backpacking around South America. At one point, the gentleman on the front desk was shouting at me telling me to get off of the computer, evern though all of my pictures were on there being transferred across and... More

We stayed here as part of a basic tour, so not sure of the exact price. It was a few blocks from the centre of town. We had a very cold room adjoining the spacious courtyard, but there was a lot of renovation work going on at the time. Staff were helpful but not over-friendly. The breakfast was very minimal,...

Basic and clean, a little walk from the centre but pleasant enough. Work started on fixing drains before 8 am which is unreasonable and let the place down.

This hostel was ok, but nothing special. Old building with a nice outside courtyard, but meant the rooms were large and a bit basic. Bit of damp in the bathroom, which wasn't a problem, but place needs dome care and attention I suppose. Good location 5/10 mins from the main square. I would shop around before going again (it was...
