It is rather a hotel than a hostel, but at a decent price. Very well located yet quiet. Definitely not a party hostel, but ideal for a calm night. Warm water in the private shower, spacious bed and quite large room. Coca tea against the altitude sickness is available from leaves at any time of the day or night, and the reception is occupied 24h, too. If they call you a taxi to the airport, it is 70 BOB, thus, more expensive than if you take the same in the street (around 50-70 BOB).
This hostel is in a nice location in the center of La Paz. We had a good double bed in our room and the shower was really hot. The bathroom could be a bit cleaner and less smelly. The Wi-Fi was fast, even in our room. The breakfast was ok and you could choose which kind of egg you wanted. We also made use of the laundry which was delivered back to us without any problems.
Great decoration, amazing staff and breakfast. The staff was really helpful and extremely friendly. The hotel is very central and for further locations you can take a taxi - these are really cheap and the staff told us exactly how much to pay for each ride. This saved us from being ripped off. I would definitely say here again.
Absolutely loved this hotel (not really a hostel - there are no shared rooms). HOT water, beautifully painted rooms, breakfast included, genuinely friendly staff, competitive booking for activities (more than one option offered), clean, great location. I planned to stay for one night but ended up staying for four nights.
Our room upon initial check-in (#103) was damp, the sheets were dirty and there was black mold all over the ceiling of the bathroom and it opened up to the street and was noisy. We asked to move rooms (they don't show you to your rooms, which is a bit of a labyrinth) and moved to #205, which was much better, cleaner with no mold, although now none of the windows opened in case of fire, plus it was warm. Breakfast was good with fruit, yogurt and eggs and the staff was friendly.
Sol andino was in a great location, near the witches market and other sights. Very clean rooms and good breakfast included.
Nice place to stay. We had a 3-perso triple with a private bathroom. The price is good, location is convenient and it was safe. Hot water for showers. Good wifi. Airport pickup. They let us in and had a room ready for us at 4 a.m. so that was very nice. The staff didn't speak English so don't count on that though. Overall I would recommend.
Pretty chill place. 10min walk to the bus terminal, spitting distance to the witches markets (overhyped imo). Quiet rooms. Pool table upstairs was a nice touch, although the tips on all the pool cues are warn away. I did laundry at this hostel and they lost a sock and flogged my washing bag. Bit annoying. I argued 25Bs off the laundry price though, so not a big deal.
Very basic hostel. Not much in the way of facilities but on the flip side, the staff are super friendly and helpful. A fairly decent breakfast by hostel standards, eggs, fruit, yogurt, yummy bread, juice, tea, coffee. The only downside, the smell from the drains.
Good hostel. Good location. Staff were helpful. Great breakfast. Not a huge atmosphere, but it had a very nice common area. The only issue was you could hear traffic noise at night from the room.
Really good Hostal, Service and Facilities like a Hotel. Only one point: It can get a little cold during the night

A blunder with our reservation was quickly resolved. Room was right up the top floor [wish they had an elevator} breakfast was substantial. Easy to organise tours from their ie death road bike ride. good location- near witches market san pedro prison not far away. Staff friendly though some are new and still learning the ropes. clean facilities, WIFI so-so
Comfortable and quiet hostel located in the heart of La Paz. Walking distance to restaurants, markets and attractions. Good breakfast- fresh fruit and eggs. More of a hotel than a hostel.
We found the staff helpful, especially the lady at the tour desk - were able to book Salt Flats and death road tours, as well as long distance buses. There isn't much atmosphere, although we weren't really there much during the day to see who else was around.
Big room with very comfy bed and hot, powerful shower. As others have said this is more like a hotel than a hostel although there are good communal spaces including a sunny conservatory area. Breakfast was good, with eggs cooked to order. The staff were very smiley and helpful and spoke good English. More expensive than other places in La Paz but worth it!
Less like a hostel, more like a small hotel...which is good if that's what you're looking for. If you wanna meet people and get loose, head to Loki or Wild Rover
More like a hotel than a hostal. Double room was spacious, warm, comfy bed, fantastic shower in en-suite. Room cleaned daily, breakfast fantastic, great outside areas incl roof terrace and pool table. Bad stuff - shuttle we booked from airport never arrived, and no apology given when we eventually got to hostal via taxi, staff not overly helpful, cafe closed, no kitchen, very little atmosphere as no-one seemed to use the (very good) communal areas. Still v good choice if dont mind no atmosphere.
Good breakfast, big and clean rooms, hot water and in the centre of La Paz.
Good value for money. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Right in the middle of everything.
