Nice place, the staff speak great english and the location is perfect :)
Very nice place, definitely a guesthouse and not a hostel. Maybe a little bit pricey for rooms that have shared bathrooms but everything is very well kept and the lounge is like a hotel business lounge. Very good English with the owner.
Had a nice stay. Staff spoke fluent English
Perfect! Only negative point: showers dont have enough water. Rest really good
Would definetly recommend it. Close to the main attractions, very clean and nice rooms. But it's loud, because located at the main street. Good service, no breakfast included.
When you go to La Paz stay here! Clean and calm Rooms, clean Bathrooms, good Atmossphere AND very very helpfull Owner and Employers.
It is a nice hostel near the center of la paz (5-10 min walk) They have a kitchen, though not very large nor a lot of pans (but kitchens are rare in la paz!). The showers are electrical, this means, a little bit hot water or a normal amount of luke warm wather, this could definitely be inproved. Wifi is free but unfortunately you have to pay for the computer (not much, but i think this is something you can include in the price of the room)

This is not a bad place to stay. :) I thought particularly the staff was very nice and the location is good. However as a solo traveler, it's fairly easy to find something with your own bathroom for the same price in La Paz, and I did find that the single room lacked in charme a bit (no window, quite dim). On the other hand if you're in it for the communal feel, a hostel would probably be better than a guesthouse.

The staff was so nice and was very helpful. It was very safe and clean. No free breakfast and the showers were not warm. It was also semi hard to meet people cause not many ppl stay there
Great location. Fantastic security. Staff friendly, helpful & able to speak some English (better than my Spanish). Of the staff also got up to let me out for my airport taxi at 2.30am and they were STILL friendly & smiling. Room clean, bed ok / average, showers were warm if you keep the pressure low, great little kitchen, bathrooms clean. Lounge room for reading, watching the traffic or using hostel PC's. Would stay here again and have recommended to others already. Great for a solo traveler.
The people at the front desk were wonderfully friendly, incredibly helpful, and genuinely committed to us having a good stay not only in the hostel, but also in La Paz in general. They gave us advice on how to get to and from locations, where we could wash our laundry, which types of taxis are safest, everything. The hostel is quiet and clean. A great place to stay for a few days (or a couple of weeks while looking for an apartments, as was our situation) and rest.

Positive - All the building in very clean - Location is central - Staff is very nice, smily and helpful - Double room is simple but confortable and quiet Negative - All the building is quite cold as there is no heating. They are providing free hot water bottles and hair dryer, which is great, but I was still freezing all the time -Hot water is coming down the shower with way to low pressure. So you freeze under the shower - Wifi is way too slow
Its a great hostel with owners giving above and beyond customer services. But you have to pay to use the computer although wifi is free. Huge shower facilities but its a bit cold inside due to the air heater not working.
An extremely lovely place to stay. Love the room and the common area. You can cook, enjoy the movies and buy groceries there. Staff members are friendly and helpful. It's very near to the bus terminal and you can easy get to the city centre on foot. The only setback is the shower is not hot but warm.
We felt like home! Great and very helpfull staff, thank you all for your support, very good advice and friendlyness! Nice room, ctlean bathrooms, showers and kitchen. Showers are warm. We liked the terrace on the top. Very good advice for trips in the jungle, taxi to the airport (what a ride!), buses to Copa... Water and snacks available at the hostel for normal prices, thank you! Realy recommendable!!
A guesthouse (as the name suggests) - not a hostel. No atmosphere, no activities etc... Recommend staying at adventure brew hostel 100m up the road.
A safe, clean and very welcoming hostel. The staff arranged an airport transfer for me and were waiting as the taxi dropped me off to help me into the hostel with my backpack. Lovely helpful staff where I was made to feel really welcome and safe. Also a nice lounge area for chilling with other guests. Perfect for what I was looking for. Thanks Arthys xx
Ruben and mauricio were welcoming generous and helpful. Helped us organise taxis to the airport. Nothing was too much. Chilled vibe. Free dvds to watch. If i could pick a fault it would be that shower flow is average but it was hot.
Nice and quiet for a good sleep. Staff really helpful and friendly. Great access to the bus station and only a couple of minutes walk to get into the main areas.
Overall, a positive experience. Set up mainly for couples, this is a well located hostel about 5 minutes walk from the main touristy areas of La Paz. The room was comfortable and the common area is nicely furnished and laid out.
