They are very helpful. Can be noisy because of the central location. But I would highly recommend this place. Would definitely stay here again.
I only spent here one night and one day, it was very nice, i can't complain of anything. It's also nice to see the murales everywhere on the walls, it also has a nice pool, free tea and internet. Staff was also very polite, nice, available.
Door would lock only if trying really hard. Super friendly staff but "forgot" to give us a written receipt for our money.
Cruz de los Andes was a great hostel for our needs. Having not had a hot shower for about 3 weeks prior to our arrival it was wonderful to have a hot shower in the hostel. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. It was also great being able to watch cable television to get our western tv fix. On top of this the staff were always very helpful and polite.
This place was a hotel and with no common areas but was nice to stay for a few nights and relax, we had our own balcony. On a side street so quieter but close enough to downtown backpacker mecca streets with abundance of markets, restaurants and travel agents. Staff were friendly and helpful.
I loved the mural paintings throughout the hotel and in my room. The location is ideal, very close to the city center but in a quiet side street with little traffic. Staff is very friendly, the internet connection and the hot showers worked well and breakfast was very good. My room had a little balcony with wrought iron reeling; my suggestion: put 2 chairs out there.
It is a very nice hostel with beautiful murals in every floor and every room, the main entrance is not that nice but don´t let you go with that first impression. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are beautiful with nice hot water, there is a desk for tourism and they are very helpful guiding you even if you are not going to buy the touristic plan with them and rather want to go by yourself, it is located right in the center near to everything you need and the breakfast is really good
Close to Linares St., it's convinient to buy surveniors. They have hot water 24 hours, there is a partition between the shawer room and toilet Free 2 PC available, free WIFI. The stuff are kind,but some of them couldn't understand English. We stayed there 4 nights on Dec and Jan, we didn't feel cold in the room. I'll stay this hostel again, if I have a chance to visit La Paz.
Nice hostel with a great location. The rooms are clean en everyting is well organized. Downside is the fact there is no elevator and if your on the 4th floor you are goining the be excausted before you enter your room. The wifi does not work in the top floor rooms so you have to go downstairs for wifi. The staff is very helpfull.
Good location for shops and restaurants. Very busy area so there can by noise at night. Rooms at back are quieter and have balconies / first floor back rooms have little courtyard. Carmelia, main receptionist, very friendly and helpful. She was off on the day that we asked for a late check-out (normal is midday; we asked for 2pm) and the replacement wanted us to pay 50% of the daily room fee - excessive! One night, the night porter decided to put up metal screens at midnight, which woke us!
Very friendly and helpful staff, good room with comfortable bed and hot shower, decent breakfast and a good location in La Paz.
The staff were amazing during my stay - nothing was too much trouble and they were all so lovely.
Really nice - more like a hotel. Breakfast was better than most as it wasn't just bread! Easy to walk everywhere. Staff have lack of communication and a lot of misinformation, though- almost lost our laundry, which was a little annoying.
This is not a hostel, this is a hotel! It was so nice to stay here, the room was big, we had a matrimonial- and a single bed, a balcony and a nice bathroom. The breakfast was overwhelming, there were computers and a pool table which was free to use! Would like to warn you about the tour company inside this hotel though. The guy who works there mainly is a real nutjob. He speaks English words, but they don't make any sense, and he tried to make us pay twice for something we had already paid for..
Nice hostel in a good location. Everything was easily accesible from this hostel. Good breakfast and friendly staff. However we did not have a powerpoint in our room except in the bathroom....not the best place to plug in your computer or cell phone. Also our room had not been cleaned very well from the previous guests. Otherwise it was a nice place to be and relax.

The hostel is so comfortable, it feels more like a hotel than a hostel. The shower was the best shower I've had in the entire 7months I have been travelling. Free brekkie was great too. Good location very close to witches market and main strip of restaurants. Staff couldn't be more helpful, they were so friendly and went out of their way to help us. I would highly recommend to stay here for a quiet comfortable stay.
Good hostel to explore La Paz from. Had a private room with a powerful shower and very comfy beds. Wifi a bit rubbish, but that's Bolivia and #FirstWorldProblems. No kitchen, but knew that already. Very good breakfast and lovely, helpful staff
All things considered good hostel, good breakfast, quiet and comfortable rooms, though wifi was slow and unreliable, but this seems to be common in Bolivia.
The rooms are nice - they're clean and new and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is good. The staff is helpful. The only problem is the place is a little noisy. The guests aren't loud - it's just that you can hear everything in the building. Anytime someone moves in a room nearby you can hear it and anytime someone is in the stairway or hallway on any floor you can hear it. Also, I didn't feel very safe walking back to the hostel alone after dark, but it was fine during the day.
