“Hostal Naira”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We stayed in this hostal for just short of a week, December 2012, on our last leg of a months travel through Peru and Bolivia. Very convenient location on Sagarnaga street, just round the corner from Plaza San Francisco. Good size clean rooms, decent bathroom, efficient reception and baggage storage. One of the best things about this hotel, from my point of view, was the attached restaurant. The food was of a good quality, slightly "westernised" in presentation, which after a months travel was absolutely fine by me; slightly expensive by Bolivian standards, but ..... Good, un-rushed breakfast, the place has a pleasant ambience, being frequented by fellow travellers.

This is a really lovely place just across from the cathedral San Francisco. The lobby and sitting room is nicely decorated and the room, even though it only had a window facing the inner courtyard was comfy and very cozy. The front desk service was excellent. You pay a little more than some other hostels, but it is worth it for the quality of the rooms and furnishings, the plentiful hot water and good wifi.

Very affordable and a must place to stay. I preferred this place to cheaper options as this is very clean and individual bathrooms, and very friendly staff. Attached is also a very nice, clean and affordable restaurant offering B/L/D with local cuisine....
I would most certainly recommend this place to any one. I booked through La Paz on Foot.. an agency that arranged my trip to Salar De Uyuni.

I have visited Bolivia many times in the past 12 years. Naira Hostal is the perfect stop-over in La Paz. They are located in a very public area, on easy public transportation from the airport. The desk will arrange safe taxi trips, change your money, store your bags if you use it as a base for traveling, and give advice about travel agents and trips. They have a 24 hour guard, a great free wi-fi restaurant, with a big breakfast included.

Stayed for two nights. Check-in staff were very helpful, despite limited English (not their fault!!). Location is fantastic, right in the buzz of things and opposite a truly remarkable building. Great cafe downstairs where a really good breakfast is served; plus it's very convenient for other meals. We had an end room facing the street, which was private and like other reviewers, found it fascinating to watch life go by. We liked the ambience of the hostel and would recommend it thoroughly. TV reception wasn't great, but this wasn't an issue, as who really wants to watch tv in a place like La Paz?

Stayed here for 5 nights in a room overlooking the front street. Although these rooms are very noisy we were happy as we could watch from the balcony the hustle and bustle going on below (all other rooms have view of internal courtyard so no natural light). Take earplugs. Could be a good hotel but the men at reception are so rude, unfriendly and unhelpful.

My positive reviews are similar to what others have written, so I'll be succinct and relevant to previous reviewers. The hotel: Clean room, basic, great value, good size. We had an internal twin, which opened to the main second story space around the lobby. Some might find the morning noise from checkouts and restaurants problematic, but the window/door shuts tight and we were up early anyway. Lacking a true functional window (one opened to the stairs and the other opened directly to the lobby where we felt like fish in a fishbowl, so we kept all but the transom above our door closed).
All desk clerks were super friendly and helpful as was housekeeping. Restaurant staff we encountered were of the indifferent sort others have written about desk clerks: perhaps they swapped staff duties out? So we took the free minimalist breakfast of yoghurt, bread, cereal, juice and cold eggs most days and ate other meals elsewhere. The hostel is right in the middle of the tourist district, so there was no shortage of nearby eating alternatives. Great price for the room, we would stay there again, only ask for a room not facing the lobby if possible.
