Very pleasant place to stay; actually one of the most pleasant places we stayed at during our trip in South America, and by far NOT the most expensive :-) The most healthy breakfast for a nice price. Staff was very helpfull. Nice garden to hang out in. Thanks also to taxidriver Freddy to help us pass a blockade on the road and get to the airport in time! If there is one point for improvement is would be to offer perhaps some more vegetarian options in your restaurant.

Lovely hotel very close to the main square. Great price for a hotel stay, yummy food and cocktails (with regular happy hours) and they helped us to go on a tour to the Andes elbow. Would definitely recommend, only negative is that nobody spoke English


Excellent place to stay!!! The place is beautiful with a fantastic restaurant on the grounds. The staff was very friendly and helpful and went out of there way to make sure that I had everything that I needed. The rooms were spotless (with hot showers) and cleaned daily. Amazing view of the mountains from the grounds. Would definitely stay again!!! Highly recommend!!!!


This posada would be one of the best in South America for value cleanliness and staff friendliness. The restaurant attached has amazing food the best in Bolivia so far.


The location and the surroundings were beautiful. The room was large and clean. However the hot water was temperamental and the wi fi was extremely poor. They also advertised english speaking employees but no one there spoke english. We asked to speak to the owner twice regarding our hot water issue as we were told he speaks english but he never materialised!!! The food was good but you always had to order 3 dishes even if you only wanted one!! They would be better to price individually.

Owner Comment (Hide)
So sorry for the problems! All employees are told to get us on the phone (owners) if there is any problems whatsoever with communication. The shower and wiring in the room you occupied is new. Somebody should have demonstrated how to use it properly. We have never had English speaking employees. We will clarify this on the website. We have soups and salads that are available as 1 item in the restaurant You just have to ask. (We were happy to see you stayed 2 nights past your reservation!)


Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were lovely and got good advice re tours in the area.

Great restaurant and extra breakfast options. Lovely garden. Very clean and friendly staff.


Positive: Very good restaurant. Negative: Basic breakfast, 'virgin' cocktails and the staff doesn't speak English. But overall perfect hostel!
