“Nice quiet hotel close to the centre.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed here in november 2012.
The hotel is nicely located in the center of La Paz. Restaurants and bars are at walking distance.
The employees are very friendly and helpful.
The room is spacious and clean, with a nice wall painting and tv.
The bathroom is clean, but had a bad sewer smell from time to time.
Breakfast is pretty good. Eggs, bread, fruit, etc.
If you're looking for a nice quiet place, you found it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Spent several nights here while travelling around Bolivia. Very friendly staff at reception and also in the in-house travel agency. Rooms are of a good size and decent enough and have wifi signal. Only thing negative about the place is the lack of an elevator, but i guess this helps with the acclimatisation process!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

A very sound hostel, nothing particularly exemplary but no real complaints either. The rooms (we stayed in two as we had to return when our bus was cancelled) are of a reasonable size, comfortable and clean. Lack of storage space in one, poorly draining shower that flooded the bathroom in the other. The wifi was a bit patchy, but the staff were excellent, 24 hr hot water and the breakfast very good. Would stay again.

Me and my husband spent 2 nights in La Cruz de los Andes in La Paz. The hotel is quite closed to the bus terminal and 10 minutes walking distant fron San Fransisco church.
The room are nice and comfortable. Nice paintings on the walls of each room.
The breakfast is good. Internet access and table pool avilable.

Nice clean rooms, hot water 24hrs, decent wifi, nice breakfasts and a handy location. If flying to La Paz from sea-level may be best to avoid rooms on higher floors as there's no lift and lugging heavy bags upstairs at this altitude is no joke!

My initial impressions of this hostel were quite wrong, as it appeared a little shabby, but having spent 2 weeks in Bolivia, this was definitely one of the nicest places I stayed:
Hot showers - tick,
Wifi - tick,
Good quality breakfast - tick
Location close to main attractions - tick.
Whilst it may not be to European standards, overall this hostel is great, very cheap and offers everything you need for a short break in La Paz.
