Amazing hostel with good staff, friendly welcome. Private room was great, good size, very clean and looked much more like hotel than hostel. Bathroom good size. Shower was amazing!! Hot and powerful in wet room type set up in bathroom. Breakfast included and had good variety, slow in refilling it but very decent. Wifi very good. Top choice, mainly for great room with amazing shower!

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

In a word, disappointing. I spent four nights there. Though the breakfast was to be run 7:30 - 10.00 each morning, two of my four mornings it was served late, my last day when I had to catch a bus it was not ready until 7:45. There was no one staying at the hotel — that should have tipped me off — so it is not like the staff was busy attending to other guests.

The hotel was very cold though it was summer. Staff often wore coats around. Breakfast was good but its cavernous breakfast room was heated by a single wood stove and I could see my breath every morning. The tiled walkway to the breakfast room was treacherous because the rain came dripping through the roof and several mornings the tile steps were entirely covered with water.

Though my two VISA credit cards worked everywhere else in Latin America, they would not work at Tukos Hotel and I had to pay my bill in cash. The WiFi generally sucked, none to slow and unreliable. Staff was generally friendly, but my room was cleaned only one day. The room itself was spacious and the shower hot, but the mattress needed to be replaced, it was badly saggy and lumpy.

Stayed two nights, had hot water, nice view from the room, ok bed which was more like a box spring than a matters but all in all ok. Felt safe, staff was friendly and even arranged off site parking for our Jeep as it didn't fit through the door (smaller cars can park on site). Breakfast was good, more than the average bun and jam… The Apple cake is really good! Close to good restaurants, cathedral and main square. High up in town so you get a good overlook of the area. Was probably the best room we stayed in while in Bolivia if that's being positive about it! Hope this review was helpful!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a view, we got a pretty good one from our room looking out West...

We were shown a room first of all which smelt damp and the staff must have realised as straightaway offered another one (which had a strong perfume smell which was mercifully better). Enjoyed the stay here although get to breakfast early as once the food and drink goes they don't really replace it. Not everyone speaks English (to be expected) but they are generally very easy to deal with. No problems with WIFI on 2nd floor.
Location is fine, short walk to a central square with a few restaurants and shops. Quite a long way from the bus station.

Hotel is well situated, clean and somewhat renovated although many things are broken. But it is very poorly managed. I am a solo traveler and reserved a single room. When I arrived they gave me a room with 2 large beds. Then at 10pm (!), they knock on my door and ask me to change rooms, they give me a room with 2 somewhat smaller beds in a corner of the hotel where the WIFI is very poor. In the morning, around 10:30am, they come again and ask me to switch rooms and they give me a closet room that they had barely been cleaned, probably not even changed the sheets... Moral of the story, they don't care about solo travelers, you will need to arrange for other people's needs.

Large room, hot and cold taps in both shower and sink, nice atmosphere, very helpful staff. Breakfast was good but buffet style and therefore the eggs were cold. No safe in the room. Great views from the roof top terrace and our top floor room. Also quiet.

Excellent position, that's it.
When we arrived The room wasnt clean. Next morning we left at 9 and came back at 17 and The room hadn't been done still.
Internet doesn't work well other than on The ground floor.
Personnel is easy going, but not truly responsive.
Pity.
