I really enjoyed this hostel. It was very clean, the kitchen and common rooms were nice and comfortable. The staff was friendly (although they don´t speak much English, so that could be a problem for some). The bathroom was the cleanest I´ve seen at any hostel. Centrally located, but still feels safe for a single woman traveling alone. Good place to meet young people, but not a party hostel. Comfy beds and nice comforters. Overall great experience.

This hostel is conveniently located but beware that the rooms and bed clothes are not clean. Although there is a decent selection for breakfast for Bolivia there is no organisation to it so some of the time bread or cereal runs out as guest are left to themselves to self serve. Also note that the Double Private room with shared bathroom is not a private room. It is a loft area in the 8 bed dorm and simply has a shutter to pull over to separate it. You have to go up a ladder to access it.


We didn't like this hostel at all. The rooms were dirty. They had clearly not been swept in a long time and the bedding was covered in hairs. The communal bathroom is more of a shed within one of the dorms and constantly ran out of loo roll. There is nowhere private to get changed and nor is their soap in the bathroom. The staff were friendly enough, but not very helpful at all. They were not able to book is a cab to get to the bus station, but didn't let us know until last minute.


Hostel is well located and its safe to walk around. There is no activities and only few interactions with the staff, however, as I was only looking for a place to rest this was good value for money.


Nice hostel, clean and bright. Private room was not so private as it was joint to the dorm with gaps in the wall. All in all a good stay.
