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.
Have to give them props for giving me a room at 6am and breakfast when check in is at 1pm. However was a little mad when they told me they couldn't take credit even when it said online that they would. Rooms are nothing special and the whole place feels a bit dark and dingey. Very close to many of the sights and main tourist areas.
Great hostel with a nice breakfast, good location, nice rooms, friendly staff and a helpful travel desk. It is more like a hotel than a hostel so a bit expensive and not a great atmosphere, but worth the stay If you want to relax in La Paz.
They ran out of heaters because they were fully booked out. Decent breakfast.
Good breakfast, eggs, yog, delicious bread, three fruits, two cereals, hot drinks and yum spreads. Wifi very good, location great. More of a hotel but do enjoy the lovely courtyard. Helpful staff, an all round good stay. Would return.
We loved our stay here. Fantastic hot shower with good water pressure. Good wifi. Breakfast was good - nice selection and tasty, crusty bread. We appreciated tea always being available. The location was great for exploring the nearby markets. The staff were always very friendly too.
