It was nice to stay in a place outside the main tourist hub, but still be within a short walk to the cafes and restaurants. The hill up is certainly a steep one at this altitude, but we found if you go around the block instead of straight up its just a bit longer and much easier. Also, one of the best restaurants in town is just a few metres away at the same height! The central enclosed courtyard is an attractive feature and all of the rooms are set off walkways at various levels above this common space. Our room was small but comfortable. The use of the heater at night was good. The beds were comfortable and warm. The shower is certainly fickle, it seems to trip a safety switch when the room gets too steamy - so make sure you beat your room mate to the first shower. Second one in usually gets a burst of freezing water when it shuts down! Wi-fi is very weak, but we found that was generally the case in Bolivia. That aside, we had 4 good nights stay here and recommend it.
