“'The Shining' in Le Paz”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

Walls so thin i could hear literally hear our neighbour roll over in bed. Mattress thin and old. Location average. Bathrooms had hair all over them. Atmosphere that of a place to wait for your drug dealer to turn up. I would have preferred to camp. Avoid.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2011

It doesn't look like much from the street, but it's quite nice and new-looking inside. The staff was the most friendly and helpful I've encountered in Bolivia. My room had a balcony, table, chair, and wardrobe, which is way more furnishing than you usually get in this price range! Wifi worked reliably. My only complaints: the plug in my room didn't work, and the hot water was a bit erratic. Guests seemed to be mostly foreigners, and there is a nice common area, but as it's all private rooms it's not a super social environment like a true hostel. I paid 56 bolivianos/8 USD for a single room with shared bathroom.
