Good for a night before a tour. The BBQ was delicious. Bathrooms and beds are pretty basic

Fine for a night either side of jungle/pampas tours but not a great hostel overall. Nice pool to cool off. Breakfast basic. Wifi pretty bad. The fans in the rooms didn't work, which they really need to sort out as the rooms were very hot at night and I barely slept. The showers were absolutely disgusting. Book exchange a bit stupid - 2 books to get one back is a dumb rule as most people only carry around 1 book. Good chill out areas with hammocks etc and cute dogs.

Nice place where to stay before & after the jungle and the pampas tours. Helpful staff, clean rooms and hot water. Wifi isn't good, but it's the same pretty much everywhere in Rurrenabaque. Breakfast is bread, jam & butter and bananas.

Great hostel... for Rurrenabaque. Our first room (private, no bathroom) was absolutely awful- we couldn't sleep for the smell of mould. When we came back from the jungle we had a room with a bathroom, which was much better. The breakfast was pretty terrible with bread and fruit covered in tiny ants, the pool was far too disgusting to try and the book exchange was give two/take one (what?!) But the staff were brilliant and the hammock area was great. Just don't expect much sleep ;)

An okay place - good value for money. Bit dirty though lacking toilets. Staff were good, but wifi was truly awful. Don't get exited about the pool - it's rank. ADVICE; bigger dorms are nicer/ have working fans and are cheaper. 4 bed dorm is more expensive and much worse!

This place is great for pre and post Amazon. Wifi ok. Location fine. Lady at the reception a bit miserable but the other members of staff made up for it. Breakfast very basic. Social atmosphere.

It's a nice place to stay before or after your tours to pampas and jungle. There are some hammocks and a pool which is not very clean though.

Very basic accommodation, wifi terrible (but I think it's the same throughout Rurrenabaque), pool was dirty, my bed sheets were dirty and the shower often did not have running water (was told its because the tank had to refill every time). No kitchen facility and there was not enough breakfast to feed all guests during our stay. Does have luggage storage and is adequate for a stay on either side of a jungle/pampas tour but don't expect much.
