We arrived early in the morning from a long overnight bus ride from the Pantanal and this was like an oasis in the desert. They let us store our backpacks at 7am (check in 2pm), we went for breakfast down town and on return they let us use the showers, lounge and pretty much everything until our room was ready... More

This hostel is very clean! They have a pool which is great since Santa Cruz is so hot! The hostel has a very friendly atmosphere but can get a bit loud on weekends. The staff is great at providing recommendations and advice. I stayed there a week and loved the breakfast. It was a bit pricier then the other hostels... More

The private room that we had was below par, not a particularly comfortable bed and the fan sounded like a jet taking off an inch from your ear. The rest of the hostel was well equipped, comfortable, clean with a lovely pool area. Breakfast did include eggs to order which was a nice additional.

Probably the best hostel I've stayed in... Ever. A lot of people seem to complain about the price, but I think it's a great price for what you get. I've certainly paid a lot more for much less amenities. The staff is great! The pool is amazing! If you get lucky and get a BBQ night, you will not be... More

It is a little bit pricy, but It is worth it. Great beds, shower and wifi (in the lobby). There is a good kitchen, a good bar and a really nice pool. The breakfast is included and better then average bolivian breakfast. Nothing to complain about.

Before we booked, we read the reviews of this place. The complaints are in my opinion ridiculous . THIS is a perfectly ruled, maintained and organized place. In case somebody wanna be "free" in his style of living , should better use another place where a group of humans have to share the same house. But with rules u can... More

A cool, clean, and nice place to stay. We were here for one night. Breakfast was fresh. Although a bit difficult to find the hostel so make sure you have good directions if you are going there by taxi.

We stayed in a private room/container for 3 nights. The location is ok being a 30 minute walk from the main square but still 5-10 minutes from mini markets and restaurants. We thought the container idea was pretty nice and different. The room look good but the bed was awfully hard and the floor got very dusty and dirty after... More

I was in a large dorm, which had just been renovated. It was spacious, clean and all the bed had their own little light and plug. The bathroom was really big, but at the end of the day not so clean anymore, could use a twice-a-day clean. There were enough toilets in the building. The pool was nice to cool... More
