The hostal is located right next to Calle Sagarnaga (on Linares), so the best La Paz souvenir shopping is right at the entrance door. The Coca Museum (which is very interesting) is 3 doors down the Linares road. Tours to Tiwanaku and Titicaca start from the Sagarnaga/Linares intersection too. So I could not imagine a better location.
In addition the staff is very friendly, they arranged a couple of taxis for me (and I had to cancel a few more due to airline delays) and each time the taxis were there, punctual and reliable. They also called for me tour and bus companies when needed. I also left my luggage there for days with no incidents. The rooms are a bit simple (that's why I did not give them five stars) but clean and comfortable, with hot water showers even at 3am.
I did not try to eat at the places inside the plaza, but I found excellent restaurants a couple of doors down the road, with nice decor and cheap (<10$) very good food.
