you get what you pay for... this hostel is very cheap, hence you don't get a lot... bash and crash is definitely one of the cheapest hostels in Bolivia, i paid only 39 bolivianos for a dorm, around a fiver. the location is good, very close to the main touristy bit so that was fab! however don't expect to come here and expect luxury. i stayed in an 8 bed dorm, which actually had 9 beds... bed was average, pillow was awful though, lumpy and very uncomfortable. this is apparently a 'party hostel' but in the 2 nights i spent there i saw no partying! loud music blaring out from the bar, even though no one was in the bar... quite annoying! breakfast was included but i didn't get round to trying it as i hadn't heard great things. wifi was good in main areas but not very good in the bedrooms. had a small communal area with plug sockets which was okay, tv room and computers - they looked pretty dated though. toilets and showers were my worst part - they permanently stank as there was no ventilation in there. the shower didn't look like it had been cleaned, it was covered in thick hair on the floor and all up the walls - pretty grim. on the plus side the showers were very warm. overall, i didn't particularly enjoy my stay here, however because it is so cheap i would come back here if i was low on money.
