For sure one of the nicest hostels in Bolivia. Just hard to understand, that it fails in 2 basics: No lockers and really bad matraces (never had so bad matraces in such a new hostel): Bad quality matraces which are already worn out and so smooth, that you sink so much in that u feel the wood under u. The atmosphere is "100% Gringo like": It seems the hostels name scares latin travellers, so you want listen one word of spanish in this hostel. And you will miss a living room on rainy days
Finally a hostel good enough for Chuck Norris.
I didn't get the room type I had a reservation for and the owner didn't even apologize for that. I found the atmosphere rather annoying, e.g. many signs telling what you are allowed/expected/wanted to do and what not. Also, it was absolutely not possible to meet someone there who wasn't staying at the hostel - not such an unusual thing in my opinion...

A great hostel with nice outdoor terrace and good kitchen. Super clean and awesome staff (=mike). Haha. Only negative thing is that there are no lockers which really is quite annoying. Anyways, great hostel, go there!!
Great sociable hostel with a very friendly owner. The bathrooms and kitchen are extremely clean. Warm water was always present. Patio outside is nice to socialize and meet people, kitchen is a bit small, but therefore cosy. Only improvement would be offering breakfast. Highly recommended place.
