I was suprised that there was not kitchen facilities available


Great atmosphere, good food, and the staff spoke English and were very helpful. Highly recommended!


Nice rooms and lots of places to meet people, specially the bar where big parties are made.


The hostel is well located and well handled.


Very friendly and helpful staff, nice and relaxed atmosphere! Feels like home. A tour agency in the hostel is a plus and allows you to book everything you like.

the promised whirlpool, the hammock and the spa didn´t exist!! the breakfast is very poor (in case it is served). it can also be that the stuff gets drunk all the night and refuses to serve breakfast. when trying to talk to someone at the reception it turned out that no one has shown up and we could only talk to the cleaning lady. not to be recommended!!

WiFi - but normal in Bolivia / There's a bar and all but atmosphere isn't great. Bar is large and everyone is on their phones. They should change the style of the bar so people can interact more.


Whilst the staff were nice, the hostel was very dirty! Our room did not have a lock or a handle. We had to use our own lock to secure the door. The window was just a sliding window that anyone could have entered through. The breakfast was stale bread and the sheets were not washed. One night I noticed a group of young Bolivians not from the hostel drinking in the bar and being very rowdy until 6:30am. I question the security of the hostel. I would not stay here again. Sorry!
