We were given a tiny bedroom with. Noisy fan that was fairly ineffective. Ordered a fruit shake and it took them 10 mins to come and tell us that the blender was broken. Wifi was bad but then that's the case for most of Rurrenabaque. Good pool and hammocks.


Nice place to relax and meet people. Clean, big pool, cheap bar, big kitchen and clean rooms. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.


The place to stay in rurrenabaque!


They make you wear a wristband, but other than that is was fine.


enjoyed our stay here, nice pool and hammock area, double room very small and basic as was the breakfast.. nice bar area and friendly staff.. rurrenebaque is a wonderful place to visit, i would recommend visiting moskito bar as the food is really good and atmosphere too


very clean and the addition of the pool was great. the staff were very helpful. thank you


Hot water can be hit and miss, at least it was during my stay there and breakfast was fairly average. The pool is nice, and beds are comfortable. It´s good that you get a discount from your second night onwards as well.


This is one of the best hostels I´ve stayed in in south America! Our Room was clean and had a bathroom attached. All the rooms circle a beautiful pool and in the heat of this area you will enjoy dipping in it. The internet was not the best, but the atmosphere and lovely staff more than make up for that. We broke our room key twice and Juan was more than helpful!Rurrenabaque is an amazing town and with this hostel you get discounts on the tours to the pampas and in Moskkito bar.


The hostel was nice apart from the room at the entrance. The mattresses may as we'll not be there they are so awful and uncomfortable and it is very loud. We only stayed in this room one night. The private rooms at the back are great. Breakfast is average - standard bread, jam, butter and juice


Had almost no water in the shower, took long to fix and then only cold water came. Second morning no water at all. Hostel is very noisy at night. Good location but even for one night there are better options. Small lockers are provided at reception.

Really nice facilities with pool and hammock area. The 8 bed dorm is very loud though, so I would recommend to book one of the other rooms.
