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
Good relaxed hostel, inhouse travel agency present that can book the usual tours around La Paz for you. The hallways and passage ways are all open air, and La Paz can get cold at night, be prepared for that.
Great comfortable and warm beds, breakfast is free but basic, only 1 warm shower available during my stay due to problems with the hot water but did not matter as the hostel was quiet so no need to wait. Helpful staff and tour/bus booking. Great secure location a few minutes walk to attractions and restaurants.
Staff helpful, while our stay cold showers, no restaurant and we needed to pay for our toilette paper.... Overall its a cheep option, but just arround the corner there are better options for your money.
Definately the best value hostal That I´ve stayed at in my many times in La Paz now. Very comfortable large beds.Wifi in bar and rooms. Although the well advertized Jakuzzi wasn´t working. There´s even a piano. Was a few musicians there when I was there, which was great. Walking distance from the bus station,and 5 mins from market and town centre I would definately stay again.
The NO hostel, anything you ask for the answer is no. No breakfast from menu - even though it's in there and on the board in the bar, 50% of the menu not available, no Jacuzzi and definately no party(there was a group of 20xteens on a school tour so that was fun!) This hostel is freezing, the TV room is a TV hanging in the main bar, the computers are older than I am, there is no fridge/kitchen to store make your own food and the "restaurant" isn't open 24/7. Bathrooms - horrible and so are staff

The decor & location of the hostel were quite good, and the beds were very comfortable. Not a single hot shower during my stay though, and theres nowhere to get changed or hang your clothes, except in the FREEZING cold area outside the showers, blocked from sunlight but exposed to the air - really bad planning. The reception staff were terrible too - some girls in our dorm had their camera stolen, and the staff were really unwilling to help in anyway. Also quite rude and unknowledgable.
Close to Bus terminal. Great beds. Lockers with Ac plugs!. Very kind and helpful staff. A lively bar with very LOUD music and pool.Ok wifi. Warm Showers. Clean! A fine hostel
I've stayed at Bacoo for quite some time and it's an enjoyable locations with a few issues. Firstly, the lockers are in reception and not in the rooms, which has meant things do missing from rooms more than they should. Overall the facilities are great, large beds, very clean (although staff don't work as hard on Sundays). There is no kitchen, while eating out is cheaper in Bolivia, it's not the best. And the main hangout and breakfast area is a smoking area. not much fun for us non-smokers
Good hostel with the best beds ever in a hostel. For the rest is the hostel in all point Good.
Nice hostel located close to markets and city centre. The staff is very nice and the hostel is always clean. For me, the hostel was too quiet. If you are up for a real party hostel you might want to book another hostel. The breakfast was basic.
