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.
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!
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.
This is the second time we stayed here and it was just as good as the first time. Highly recommended.
Nice place, good location, used their in house tour company which was very handy. Rooms were good
Decent place. We booked 3 nights in a double room with a matrimonial bed but for some reason we had to stay in a room with 4 single beds the first night and then move all of our stuff the next morning. This was a little annoying b/c we wanted to do some tours and instead were stuck waiting to move rooms. When we did move into the matrimonial room it was big but with a very strange smell - we think it is from the artwork on the wall that is moldy. Internet did not work in the rooms.
Great breakfast, great location, great wifi in the room, super clean, tea in the lobby all day and a great room for just 150 bol a night. Staff was helpful, the travel desk was superb (spoke perfect English and was happy to provide info on things to do that weren't packaged tours. Nice little garden areas to hang out in - my only beef was that my room was on the 5th floor and it was a killer climb in that altitude. But other than that, which I got over, it was perfect.
This is one of the best places we've stayed in in s.a. We liked it so much we extended our stay by 4 days (also to attend Spanish lessons). Breakfast was excellent, rooms spacious and cleaned every day to a high standard. They had a nice balcony upstairs. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The lady at the tour desk was really helpful especially when the buses went on strike for the morning. Highly recommended.
We stayed here on three separate occasions so we obviously liked it. The staff couldn't have done more and we booked three successful trips through their onsite travel agency that was extremely helpful. Clean rooms, nice chill out areas, excellent showers, good breakfast. More of a hotel than a hostel and that was fine by us. Good location in La Paz. Only slight draw backs: rooms could be a bit drafty and there were virtually no power points.
We stayed in a private room, which was very clean and comfortable. The rooms are cold but plenty of blankets are provided. The shower was great, hot and powerful. Breakfast is plentiful and tasty. There wasn't really an atmosphere to speak of. The kitchen staff were very nice but the rest were unhelpful at best. They did not even show us to our room, we had to find it ourselves and gave us no info. The girl on the tour desk was new and gave us incorrect info but Julius tours did compensate us.
Great place and friendly staff.

Nice terrace with an amazing view over the city and a pool table. A very nice place to stay in the centre of La Paz.
