They say they have English speaking staff.there wasnt 1 English speaking staff member. They say they help book tours. There was no help. They say they cook omelettes anytime of the day for u.they had a menu with these and other cheap options stating from7:30am-9:30pm. We were stoked with this until we went to order lunch and they said it was only available for breaky!i had to order off the expensive menu of which most items were 'sold out'. And no DVDs, that's another lie. Wifi doesn't work.


This is an excellent place to stay in Samaipata. It's in a beautiful location only 5minutes walk from town. The rooms are lovely, the staff are very helpful and the food is excellent.


We thought the room was amazing for the price. We had a double with an amazing view for the same price we would normally get a dorm. The garden was beautiful too.


It's quite an expensive hostel for what you get. The American owner isn't very friendly (also to his staff). The breakfast was super minimal, you have to pay extra for almost anything. By far not the best breakfast we had in Bolivia, especially considering the price of the hostel.

We have the lowest staff turnover in Samaipata. Our employees have been with us for years and are always smiling and friendly. This certainly does not come from poor treatment. If 75 Bs a person is expensive for you, you probably were at the wrong hotel. Our breakfast formula, the continental is designed to keep your cost low. You could have payed a bit extra and had a great meal. I was sick with a virus the days you were here. Sorry, but it was hard to appear friendly. I really tried!


Best place to stay in Samaipata - the innkeepers are wonderful and food even better!
