It's a pretty basic hostel that serves its purpose as a stop over doing tours in rurrenabaque. Staff we're shocking in that they hid from guests and have no info at all on anything. Overall it's cheap and kinda cheerful and is prob best place in town to use as a 1 night stop at either end of a tour
Toilets didn't flush while I was here which was a shame. There was a huge group of young and annoying kids staying here as some sort of excursion which made the atmosphere pretty terrible. The staff cancelled the booking of a couple who arrived when I did to make way for these guys. When I came back after my jungle trip I had a reservation in a dorm, but was instead put in a private with two strangers. Weird. It seems reservations are just a suggestion for these guys?
Good Hostel for pre or post pampas trip. Skip the breakfast and head to the French bakery though. Big issue with the dorm room door... Could only be shut by locking, and only one key, for a 6 bed dorm. And with no lockers available, security is an issue.
Nice clean and friendly hostel. Would recommend
This is a nice hostel, and looking around at the others in Rurrenabaque, the best value for what you get. The rooms are confortable, with hot showers. It has great common room. The breakfast is not very good, as the coffee is terrible, and the bread is all salty. Also, the lack of an open kitchen is bad. Finally, dispite the staff cleaning what seems like constantly, there is mud everywhere all the time, which makes its way into your room. But this is the case everywhere in Rurrenabaque!
