The hostel was pleasant, quiet and in a good location. Breakfast was very good with eggs cooked freshly to order. Rooms have keycards, so I felt comfortable leaving my possessions in the room when I was out. My only complaint was That there was a very strong smell in the room when I arrived. This was from the floor polish. Fortunately I was around when they started cleaning the next day, so I was able to ask them to sweep rather than polish the floor, and they did remember the following day.

A pleasant, quiet hostel well situated in La Paz. The staff are very helpful. A special mention goes to Paola who organised my death road adventure.

Really good hostel- again more like a hotel. Good breakfast from 7:30-10am. A few blocks away from many attractions of the La Paz.

Nice hostel / hotel on a fine location. Breakfast is above avarage, with juice, yoghurt, eggs, bread, fruit and more (and very friendly service). Double beds are on the small side. Luckily our room had an extra single bed.

Brilliant little place. Don't get out off by the dark entrance hall because the rest of the hostel has some amazing wall paintings which are so colourful and liven up the place. Te staff were SO helpful. Our banks blocked our cards and they lent us money to find a call centre to call back to the UK. Their little tourist desk is brilliant too as they helped us to book buses to Uyuni and our salt flat tours along with lots of other advice. The beds were comfortable and the showers hot! Recommend!

The place itself was decent, more a hotel than Hostal, the breakfasts were good and the place was clean. The tour desk was AMAZING, we wish we could divide the staff rating into two parts as the tour desk staff helped us more than the actual front desk staff. When we arrived we were robbed in a taxi and asked the front desk staff to help, however they gave us wrong directions to the police (3 times!), would not help is call the local police and would not make a report for our insurance. Awful.

Lovely place for couples or people just looking for a break from hostels for a few nights. Great breakfast, good wifi and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Location is perfect, walking distance to all the main sights in La Paz. You can walk to the bus terminal in about 15 minutes, otherwise its a 20Bs taxi ride. Shower was hot and rooms very comfortable, the murals give the place a bit of colour and character too.

This hostel was in a good location- quiet at night for sleeping, travel agencies in the building and located nearby. A short 10 min walk down the main street took you to the markets and main attractions of La Paz. The facilities were looking a bit tired when we were there and the Wifi didn't work at all was a downside. The travel agency staff were really helpful and helped us plan our time in Bolivia.

Appreciated an early check in and breakfast after a hard overnight journey from Uyuni. The young woman on the tour desk was friendly and helpful but the rest of the staff seemed disinterested. The room was cold (it was snowing when we arrived in La Paz).

Stayed before and would stay again. Arrived from Uyuni on the night bus and were given our room at 7am. Paid 15BOB per person for an extra breakfast (breakfast is very good including fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, eggs, bread, jam, coffee/tea and juice) Staff are very friendly and helpful, reception staff speak good English, tour desk staff helpful.

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!
