Spent one night here as I wanted to get a peaceful night sleep and I was staying across the street at Wild Rover. This place was more expensive at 190 Bs per night, No heat, No in room WiFi....Water wasn't hot.....Oh and they lock you in, not really free to come and go

This hostel is awful! It is run-down and temperature of the rooms is freezing. No heating or additional blankets are provided. It is like sleeping outside on a mountain. The cafe area has no atmosphere and the food we ordered was disgusting. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the hostel has good tour connections. Yet they did not... More

We tried to get into Wild rover but (luckily) they didn't have a double room for us. Across the road is this beautiful hostel. It is a cheaper option in a Beautiful colonial building with a nice quart yard. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the room was the closest thing to a hotel room we have... More

We stayed here as like many travellers the appeal in La Paz seems to be a night out in The Wild Rover hostal. As Republica is just across the road, we went for drinks at Wild Rover and back to our quieter room afterwards. We had read the reviews on trip advisor for this hostal but went against them on...

It looks like we had a similar experience to most other people here. My girlfriend and I decided to stay here due to its proximity to wild rover (where we were previously staying) we always prefer to support local business and stay in places owned by the local people so thought we'd give this place a try. The most notable... More

Personnel is incredibly rude, low costumer service level, room prices and services included in the price change depending on how many nights you stay and who you talk to. We stayed there 3 nights ( payed cash in hand the first day) and because I fell asleep without paying a bottle of water at the reception ( that I would... More

I arrived to La Paz not feeling well and wanted to find a tranquilo hostel (aka not a party hostel). I was suggested Hostal República for being quiet and peaceful and although it was more than double the price of many hostels available in the area, I shelled out the extra for a dormitory in hopes that I would get...

This hostel has some of the rudest and most unhelpful staff we have ever met. On the night of 10 September, our private, overpriced room was broken into (the bedroom window was smashed) and my friend's passport, camera, kindle, jewelry and cash were stolen. We informed the reception staff who at first seemed to blame us and did not call... More

When we arrived here, we were told we had booked a room without a bathroom. We had definitely booked a room with a bathroom as we were coming back from 4 days in the salt flats in Uyuni without having had a shower. We complained about this fact and asked for a different room, only to be told it was... More
