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!)

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

Incredibly sweet couple that runs the place. The continental breakfast included was better than normally and if you pay extra you get the most amazing breakfast in whole South America. They have everything from american pancakes to youghurt and fruit. The garden is beautiful and you can spend many hours here. No common-rooms or kitchen though, I guess this is more of a hotel than a hostel. One of my best stays in whole South America.

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.
