First the good things, hot water, ok internet and clean rooms. Now for the bad, we stayed here 3 nights and on the first day we had pancakes which where awesome, but every day after that we were given stale bread and either a banana or yoghurt which was so disappointing after the amazing pancakes, there is never anyone around to help you and the cute but barking dog and workers shouting at each other woke us up early every day. Overall it wasnt a bad experience but it could've been better.
The hostel was nice but found the owner very unfriendly the other ladies who work there are so lovely friendly and kind.
Very nice place to rest and relax. Just a few minutes from the center. Staff helpful and friendly. Hot water 24h, breakfast included.
Good hostel in Bolivia's best city. Very good value for money, good wifi, showers etc. Staff friendly, although it's a bit hectic at times. We arrived quite early in the morning (night bus from La Paz - Bolivian buses go at random times) and were made to feel welcome AND given breakfast before we'd even checked in. Kitchen was a bit small and the bed was a matress on the floor. That's not a bad thing, just a bit of a surprise. A good choice hostel!
the hostel has potential however the staff incompetence lets it down. on arrival we were told to wait 20 mins, after 40 we were told they were full

An ok hostel a short walk from the main square. Nothing wrong with with, but also not a great hostel - a place to spend a few nights. Comfortable beds. Large lockers in the dorm rooms, but they use a hostel provided lock. Standard simple breakfast. Large bookswap.
I was lucky enough to get a bed in a twin room in an apartment so it was great having my own kitchen! Good price too, especially the 14 bob lunch! Owner wasn't the friendliest but all the other staff were smiley and kind. Fantastic location - a quick walk to the markets and the square.
This was a nice hostel, I was very sick and they organized the local doctor to come and see me, very helpful. Close to town.
We enjoyed our stay at Wasi Masi. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The shower and internet worked fine. The staff were friendly and helpful. And it was only a five minute walk from the main plaza. Recommended.
Love this place! I extended my stay to 2 weeks. The market is just a few blocks away, the plaza a couple more. The beds are sturdy (no shaking), there is a giant locker for your luggage in the dorm. We have cooked out on the grill twice now, the staff is super friendly, and there are lots of bathrooms (no waiting for a shower). Pick this place!
I rated the hostel excellent on the basis of what I paid. In my opinion, everything I needed was very well provided for - in particular, safety, comfort, laundry on-site, hot showers and wi-fi.
After 6 months of travelling this is by far the best hostal I have stayed in. The rooms are very modern, clean and have individual reading lights. The Hostal has a roof terrace which is perfect for hot sunny days, offers breakfast, it also offers cheap Almuerzos for the same price you can get them on the street and they are decent. It has a small kitchen for your own personal use, a tv room with plenty of dvd's and the book exchange is enormous. Finally the staff are really friendly and helpful.
We booked with hostelworld and when we arrive no room was available! That's a pity because the hostel is good.
Booked a twin room with ensuite, got just the twin. Tiny kitchen, only enough room for one person at a time. The location is good and the property beautiful but atmosphere is missing. We moved to Kultur Cafe Berlin after 2 nights which was 100% better.
Waking up at 6:45am to the dog's barking and add to that at 7:00am construction noise out side your door is not pleasant.
Nice hostel, close to the centre with good facilities. Staff is really friendly so i was quite suprised after reading the reviews on hostelworld about unfriendly staff. Only downside was that we booked a private ensuite with a shower that was not working and so small that we had to use the shared bathroom. Good value for money, would stay again.
