The only complaint I have about this place is that the Wifi was poor in the rooms and didn't work in the main lobby at all; however there is a computer there that works well. As other reviewers have noted, it's more of a hotel than a hostel, but I found it to be a great place to rest and start off on adventures in La Paz. Breakfasts are a little better than the hostel average and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Recommended.
Very nice hostel in very good location. Very secure feeling. Room was nice and bright. Lots of facilities such as kitchen and possibilities to book tours at the reception. The central hall was a bit noisy at times.
This is not a hostal, but a hotel. No commom spaces or areas for fun, only a TV available in brekfast room, that by the way it cannot be called that way. Only coffee, tea, banana every single day and bread. Rooms are big, however very noise!! Tour agencies not far, and 10 minutes away from Mercado de las brujas and other tourist points. Go visit Chacaltaya!! Don't stay in the street until late of night if you're travelling alone, I don't feel safe in the area.
Great location and friendly staff who spoke some English. Private, secure double room with ensuite was clean and had a great view over the city. Rooftop terrace for an okay breakfast. Highlight of this hotel has to be the location close to Witches Market and San Francisco church.
Staff on reception were friendly and spoke English and Spanish. Room was clean and had good view. Shower was both powerful and hot! Breakfast was pathetic, not enough food for all the guests and the food consisted of a few pieces of stale bread and some watery juice!

The room was really noisy and had scratches on the wall. Staff was utterly unfriendly.
This hotel is safe and clean. Not the cheapest or the most expensive option (stayed in a double bed private)-- somewhere in the middle. Wifi was great the first day, terrible after that. Definitely a hotel, not a hostel environment -- no kitchen or other facilities for those wanting to meet people. Overall, we were happy with our stay.
Nice quiet hostel. Feels more like a hotel. Struggle to meet other travellers here though as no social/common area.
A great place to stay for a good night's sleep (and shower) in entral La Paz. Better for a safe, quiet and secure stay rather than for meeting people.

It is not really abostel, but rather a hotel. If you'd like to meet other travellers this place might not be the rightone for you. But if you want to enjoy a nice quit yet central hotel this is very much recommended. If you need to make any bookings try the helpful agency on the ground floor in the same building.
Great place, fresh and clean. Good value for money in la paz. Shower that are hot, tv working and big rooms some with a view.
Nice hostel, lovely staff, clean facilities, good location, basic breakfast, wifi sometimes worked. Only complaint was that it was very loud outside at night (sometimes until 2am) and I almost got electrocuted from the bedside lamp when I plugged it into the wall. The whole socket blew out from the wall.
