Nice staff, decent kitchen and wifi, SUPER hot showers (sometimes too hot... seriously), and really great central location. The only bad thing is if you are a light sleeper, you are close enough to hear the chimes of the big clock at Plaza Murillo, but ear plugs should fix that! Could not recommend this place enough :)

I found La Paz a pain for hostals - I wanted somewhere that wasn't fizzing with drunken 18-year-olds - and relative to the rest, this place was really good. Very pleasant bedrooms were great value with just three beds and nice furniture, and the wifi worked great, which is not to be taken for granted in Bolivia. (Note: it only...

The hostel is well located and probably one of the cheapest in La Paz. Just don't expect to sleep in a king size bed. The room are great, a bit cold at night but we did not need to use our sleeping bags. The common areas are good, wifi works, kitchen needs improvement (no spoons and cups). Even those little...

I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights because I was sick and I looked for the chipest (35 bs) hostel I could have find with a kitchen and wifi. It's a quiet hostel without a fun ambient, far from the center (like 13 minutes but if you are not used to the altitude it's a lot), the kitchen is...

Austria hostel A great hostel especially if your looking to get away from the party nights that the rest of the La Paz hostels seem intent on. Location is perfect with it being a 5 minute walk from Plaza San Francisco, Plaza Murillo on the doorstep and plenty off places to eat nearby. The hostel itself has a kitchen for...

Good mix of travelers, ages and nationalities. Very friendly family-like staff. Kitchen, with blender. 24 hour hot propane gas showers (never an unpleasant shower experience at this hostel). Nice communal area with computer, table, places to sit and chill. Good place to use as a base for going out to party at other hostels and clubs because it's generally quiet...

This is a pretty simple accomodattion, but also with friendly staff and close to the market, were we had our breakfasts. Definetely recommended if you are looking for low cost options. We stayed as a couple in a private room with shared bathroom.

I found the hotel cold, dirty and the staff unwilling to lift a finger to help. There were cockroaches in the kitchen and the bedding not sufficient to deal with the La Paz nights. They also made me pay a much higher price then previously agreed upon and basically kicked me out!

We paid 70 Bolivianos per night total for a double room with shared bathroom at Hostal Austria. Speaking to friends also staying in La Paz it was apparent that they were paying over twice this price for a double room elsewhere. We were very happy with our stay. The place is well set up with fast Wifi, a communal computer,...

“The rooms with window to the outside are noisy, if you're there on a friday night; I would suggest to stay on the rooms far from the TV, because sometimes the gentleman that looks out for the hostal at night wakes up before 7am and turns the TV on.”
