The staff were all helpful, especially the girl when we arrived. We had good enough internet on the first floor the whole time. Hot water and my husband said it was the best shower so far in South America. Breakfast was similar to other places we've stayed. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it, although I don't know how good it would be if you're on your own wanting to meet people.
there is no hot water. very good breakfast!
The paintings/murals are very pretty however the rest of the decor is dated and could do with some modernisation. The floors are squeaky as hell and can be annoying when you hear others traipsing up and down while you're trying to sleep. The common area was empty during our stay, I think it's more of a hotel than a hostel. The location is the best thing about this place. Overall an average stay, nothing major wrong with the place, just a bit of a meh place.
Definitely recommend. Staff very friendly. Great location. Try to get a room on a lower level as stairs can be exhausting in this town! Nice big room and bathroom
More like a hotel, quiet and not much atmosphere. Good location and staff.
Good location in the central area but still on a quiet enough street. Nice clean rooms, good breakfast (tip: remember to ask for scrambled eggs separately to the self serve :) ), helpful tour booking desk. Down sides are no kitchen facilities to use, very intermittent hot water (we were 4th floor, if that affects it?) and no lift for the lazy to 4th floor, quite a struggle with altitude and bags! Overall good place for a few night stay.
Breakfast was OK. Coffee was wimpy, but standard issue for all hostels (it seems). Clean rooms, pleasant staff and well located.
Stayed in total for four nights. It was a good place to stay, close to Sagarnaga and the witch market. Internet connection did not always work, after telling the staff to reset it, it did work out. Nice continental breakfast. No real place to hang out with others, was rather hard to meet other people there. Room was clean and good. The staff was helpful when you asked for something otherwise rather quiet. Quiet, decent place to stay when you are not looking for a party hostel.
The staff were excellent and very good breakfast. Would recommend.
Great private rooms and bathrooms, good value. Feels very safe, but not much atmosphere. Perfect if you are tired and need a good night's sleep. However the travel agency didn't put the time of one of our bus tickets and it really messed up our plans aaaargh.
This is a great hostel., more like a hotel really. We had a doublé room with an en-suite which also had a shared balcony. The romos were clean, the breakfasts good, wifi throughout and 2 computers to use. There as also a pool table and common área for socialising. We realyl liked the hostel and it is a 2 minute walk to the main toursit area and 15 mins from the city centre. the staff were very helpful and all spoke english and spanish. we were given a really helfpul local map too
Very good and affordable hostel. Wifi was a bit hit and miss and the tour desk weren't great but the breakfast was great and the laundry service was good and for the money it was great value.

This is a hotel, it lacks common areas so it's very hard to meet others. Otherwise it's basic and does the job.
The girl at reception was very helpful and nice, thanks! Good breakfast.
Great little hotel. Very clean throughout, with really friendly staff (some of whom speak English, which is helpful!). Our room was spacious with a TV and super hot shower. It's really close to the tourist areas - both witches and black markets as well as Sagarnara street with all the shops/stalls. Excellent pizza place around the corner - Mozzarella. Breakfast at the hostel is great - all you could ask for - FRESH bread, fruit and the lady will even cook you eggs :) Would stay again!
Friendly and helpful staff, good location in the city centre, clean rooms, hot showers
This is a hotel not a hostel. I stayed here when I couldn't deal with the big party hostels while getting my new passport. It's in a great location and as a single girl who was going a bit crazy due to altitude illness (clearly La Paz wasn't my town) the staff were very kind. You can also hire their car as a taxi for the same cost as the dodgy ones on the street.
More of a hotel but you sometimes need this in La Paz. Good breakfast, hot showers, good beds.
