I really do not know why this place is rated as the 6th best place in La Paz.
Good: Low price for a double room, quite well located, friendly staff.
Bad (which much outweighs the good) : The whole hostel of many many rooms share 4 toilets and 4 showers. They were only cleaned once a day after most people had showered in the morning. Every day 3 of the 4 toilets were blocked up with poo and toilet roll, so you had to go to the next floor, and all of the bins were overflowing with dirty toilet tissue. There was always a queue for the shower, which alternates between freezing cold and boiling hot every few seconds.
The hostel is located on a busy road next to a cross roads and the rooms have windows as outer walls, so it is noisy all the time. The room had the ambience of a prison cell and the bed was hard and sagging in the middle. We went to take our free drink in the bar, which tasted really weak, but the guy working in the bar was playing the most terrible dance music I have ever heard really loudly to the empty bar, which made us leave because we couldnt bear it any longer.
The place was full of huge groups of young Israelis, who stayed up late partying and smoking in the rooms almost every night. The staff did nothing to stop it. There was no communal atmosphere, we felt outsiders to a big party.
I would never stay here again. they need to build more toilets and showers, clean them more often, and perhaps write the signs that say "no toilet paper in the toilet" in more languages, or print it giant size, as nobody seems to listen.
If you are Israeli, like to party every night and dont care much for hygenic bathrooms, you might like it here. If not, avoid. There are much better options in La Paz.
