“Great breakfast and comfy rooms.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a great place to stay in La Paz, my friends and I have stayed there 3 times in the last few weeks while on the move around Bolivia. They have an excellent breakfast (eggs if you ask) compared to most other hostels in South America. The rooms are a good size (we had private triple) and they each have a TV with loads of channels. There is WiFi throughout (a bit slow) and a big TV and pool table in common room. This hostel is also quite conveniently located but off the noisy main road. Only criticism is the touch and go hot water in the showers which are a bit dated.

The rooms are very beautifully decorated and quite big, beds are comfy but the bathrooms a little dated and a bit smelly.

Location is fairly decent, close to most things you'd want to visit and not a million miles from the bus station.

Breakfast is ok and included, decent value for money so highly recommended to those backpacking on a budget.

Cruz de los Andes is a great place to stay if you're in La Paz.. it's located quite close to the markets and a short walk from the Four Corners area. The staff are lovely and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and clean, very homely. They are cleaned daily and you are given fresh towels. Shower was amazing! The breakfast was great with fresh fruit, cereals, bread, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. Also have to mention that the decor of this place is pretty!

The only negative thing I can say about this place perhaps has to do with the location of our room within the building (203). In the mornings we were awoken by an extremely loud garage roller door and I'm not sure if there is construction happening on the upper floors but there was also consistent banging. One night we were also kept up until 1:30am by a group of people playing a game of pool and playing music in the downstairs area. Perhaps a quiet time curfew wouldn't hurt, if there isn't already one in place. Even with the above mentioned, still not enough reason to not highly recommend this place! We still rate it excellent!

We stayed in Cruz de Los Andes for a total of 8 nights through a succession of trips to La Paz. It's great value, with private ensuite showers in each room & it was always great to find each room spotlessly clean.

Staff are super-helpful & the breakfast was good, & an added bonus.

Location is perfect- just 5min from the witches market, do we were right in the thick of things.

We'd recommend Cruz to anyone.

It seems a little out the way but you are two streets away from the local market, two streets away from the witches market and gringo alley and about 4 streets away from the main square with the cathedral. Good wifi and showers (which non guests seemed to take advantage of if friends were staying). Computers and pool table downstairs which i didnt discover until we were leaving. Travel service which takes a little cut for getting your tickets (this is constant throughout peru and bolivia so if you are on a really tight budget you are best going to the bus station but sometimes its not worth the hassle). Waitress makes fresh scrambled egg on demand.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The room was a decent size for 2 people with a large ensuite bathroom. Room and linen were clean, with new towels provided each day. The wifi was generally good, but could be unstable at times. The reception staff were friendly. We were particularly pleased they allowed us a very early check -in. The travel agent in the reception area was very helpful and handled our day trips and onward travel. The hotel is located close to most attractions. Most importantly, our stay was excellent value for money.

We were there for a short term stay.

* Breakfast is free - toast/fruit/yogart.
* The rooms were basic. I got bite (see picture) not sure what kind of bugs :(
* There is internet. Signal was stable.
* Location is safe and quite.
* There is no elevator. So we have to drag our luggage to 3rd floor.
* Front desk is friendly and helpful.
