I just stayed there for one night because i think its expensive for what they offer, breakfast is quite poor, no kitchen, small rooms, not enough sockets.


No kitchen


Where to begin? Staff were unhelpful on arrival and we were surprised to find the hostel a decent walk from restaurants. No hot water when we tried to shower and nowhere to hang your clothes whilst doing do. We're told there was a Christmas dinner between 7-8pm however gave up and ate elsewhere when it turned out dinner wasn't until 10pm. Only 1 PowerPoint in room. Very disappointed. Worst experience of our entire trip


Better value for money elsewhere in la Paz. The bar is the only common area in the hostel where guests and staff are continually smoking with no ventilation. The hostel lacks atmosphere, however we were the only english speaking guests whilst we were there. We had a twin room but no window and uncomfortable beds. We did not find the staff to be helpful with showing us things on the map etc. we moved to adventure brew hostel b and b which was much better!

Great value for money, staff is amazing in particular Isabel who was superhelpful, we stayed 3 nights instead of 1 which was originally planned. Approx 10 minutes walk into main tourist area and same distance to bus terminal, very convenient. super clean comfortable beds fast wifi plug sockets in locker to charge -no cooking facilities
