We stayed three nights here and really enjoyed our stay! The staff were really helpful, organised airport pick up and drop offs, the rooms were big and cosy and the hostel is in a great location. The travel agent booked all of our tours and they were all great! Breakfast was average but we got eggs so that was a bonus! Great base in la paz, also the resturant on the fifty floor was really good
Hostal Sol Andino had wonderfully hot showers, but no curtain so the water sprayed all over the room. They replaced our towels daily, so it wasn't such a big deal. Good breakfast of fruit and egg. Staff were friendly but they didn't have our booking when we arrived - it's perhaps a little disorganised. Great location. You can walk anywhere. Go to Cafe Tia Gladys on Illampu - great food.
I really enjoyed my stay, the staff were very helpful, and the girls working for the travel agency desk within the hostel were really very helpful in organising the rest of my trip - much more so than staff in other agencies I had spoken to. The hostel was clean with a good shower, in a good location for the markets and the main sights of the city. Same day laundry was also very much appreciated!

This hostel is an oasis in La Paz. If it's not too cold, their roof terrace is brilliant.

Good breakfast including eggs, hot water when needed, wifi but not often in the room, english speaking channels on cable tv, can arrange tours with Julius Tours. Has a roof terrace, good location although La Paz is quite hilly! Good restaurants nearby including a Cuban restaurant and a Mexican.
More of a hotel feel since I did not see any of the other people. The staff was nice and the breakfast was tasty and the place was really clean. Not really much of a common area though.
Good location. very good breakfast. Staff very helpfull. Not easy to meet people here as there is no common area except the breakfast room. There is also a travel agency in the hotel which make things easier to organize your bus / trips...ask for a room which isn't on the street to make sure that your room is calm. Hot shower all day. Awesome.
Great location, great breakfast, a good wifi connection and cheap in-house restaurant (6th floor) if you're in the mood for a set menu and a great view. We had to check out before 8am, which is when the super switched on day manager starts, so things were a little slow / stressful with the night guard who was finishing his shift. Stairs only, so if you're having trouble with the altitude, you will want to stay on the 1st or 2nd floor.
This place is more like a hotel than a hostel, so if you're looking to socialise it's not quite the place. That said, it's centrally located, walking distance to many of La Paz's attractions. The breakfast in the morning is delicious with fresh fruit as well as eggs scrambled or fried (as you wish). The rooms are clean and showers hot. Recommend staying here!
This place is fantastic! Basically a motel, no dorm rooms. Let us check in early (got in at 8am) and let us have breakfast. Very helpful staff!
The hostel is good. The only problem they have rooms in 4th floor and there isn't elevators. When you are in very high city, that's make a difference
only stayed one night, was lacking a little bit of atmosphere no common area.
Nice hotel. Large rooms, but rather cold. Decent hot showers, very good breakfast, excellent location near a variety of markets and restaurants. If you have a room on the higher floors, take care going up the stairs -- you will feel the altitude! :)
Great breakfast and good location but hotel style makes it difficult to meet fellow travellers.
This hostel is absolutely amazing! If, like us, you fancy staying away from the big party hostels in La Paz this is your place. Really quiet and lovely big private rooms. Within a ten minute walk of all major spots in the city and they will even arrange transfer to and from the airport. Breakfast has eggs! Only thing they lack is a common room but this is only minor.
Great hostel with superb breakfast! Perfect location, nice rooms and cosy common areas (on corridors in different levels + roof top terrace). But the most amazing feature of the place is really really hot hot shower (very unusual in the South America)... The only thing it lack is kitchen for guest...
A very colorful hostel in the heart of La Paz. Absoluely loved it!
Great breakfast. Really pretty hostel with lovely murals. Bit more of a hotel really. All very nice for a quiet stay.
Hostal Sol Andino is the perfect place to stay in La Paz. It is centrally located, very clean and has extremely helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast was easily one of the best over our whole trip in Peru and Bolivia. A airport transfer can be easily arranged for 60 Bs. The decor is very arty, bright and colourful giving a very warm impression.
Rooms facing the street could be a bit cold at night. There is no heater in the room. Breakfast was simple buffet style and served until 10am. Location was convenient for the main tourist street and restaurants. There is a pool table upstairs for guest use. If you struggle with the altitude get a room on a lower floor.
