Decent price for location however has many downsides: Breakfast is non-descript jam with tasteless bread. Laundry service lost some of my clothes. However hot water can be relied on. Rooms are incredibly basic but comfortable.

Location is ok, but the neighborhood is not good. The staff are very good, but the breakfast is almost inexistent, only two slices of bread, butter, gem and banana with cereal. When we needed to have breakfast at 7h, hour when they are supposed to be serving, we cuoldn't because it wasn't ready. Also we needed to wait 5 to...

This has been a great hostel to stay at, in the heart of La Paz. The showers are great, good wifi and the included breakfast is superior to most hostals I've stayed at. Helpful staff and clean enough. I stayed on level 2 which was quiet during sleeping hours. Good value for money with a fab pizza shop next door...

I paid about 15USD a night and stayed two nights in a private single room with a private shower. My friend paid the same price but had a double bed so it depends on your luck and their availability I guess. It's simple and basic here, warm water with good pressure although you have to wait for about 5 minutes...

Our room was small and clean, with a window to the dark hallway. Beds were comfortable and wifi was excellent. However we waited at least 6 minutes and never got more than lukewarm water. Breakfast was basic. We found a room twice the size with tons of natural light, better breakfast and most importantly hot water nearby for only 10...

This is a good option in La Paz if you're keen to avoid the party hostels. Rooms are small and a bit dark but comfortable. Price is B170 (including tax) for a double with shared bathroom. The showers in the shared bathrooms are great - very hot with amazing pressure. The wifi is good and the staff are generally very...

We were really lucky to find this hostel. It has a great location near the witch market and very good prices comparing to other hotels around the area (205 bob for private room).. the room was nice and very clean, and with hot water. Good breakfast and really nice staff. A great place to stay in La paz.

Arrived off the overnight bus and was immediately given a room. Great shared bathroom with really hot showers. Room was basic but just fine and breakfast nice. I accidentally left my memory stick in the room when I checked out the next day and rang to ask if they had found it. They had and they kept it for me...

We checked into hostal copacabana for a three night stay in La Paz. I think the first thing I should clarify is that this is not really a hostal, more of a hotel! Apparently it is called a hostal because some rooms share bathroom facilities. We checked in during the afternoon, and were greeted with a decent enough receptionist who...

“The road out the front of the hotel gets busy quite early in the morning so if you want to sleep in you may not want a window that faces the road.”

“Bring earplugs just in case - acoustics are pretty poor/the walls seem to be pretty thin!”

“Try to get a room far from the central patio, as it can get noisy at nights / mornings.”
