The hotel (not a hostel - too expensive for that, and no dorms) is located within a 10 minute walk of town. It's functional not exceptional. The breakfast is OK (you pay more to have more). The internet goes off at night when the router is put away and is not activated until around 0630. The gate is locked (preventing early walks) until the staff wake up. There are more hotels (cheaper too) in the town but they are not on the net hence not indicated on search engines.

1. It takes you 10 minutes to walk downhill 2 blocks to the main plaza? 2. The staff will leave the router plugged in for you until you are ready for us to turn it off. (It is located outside to give better coverage to our large property.) Did you bother to ask the administrator? 3. You paid for a room with an all you can eat breakfast.Why didn't you just ask for more? 4. Your room key comes with a key to the lock at the front gate so that you can come and go as you please.5. Yes we are a hotel.


Rooms are average but beautiful gardens out back provide a wonderful place to relax. The restaurant is fantastic and staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a great place to stay.

Thanks for the good review. To keep prices economical we strive for sleep comfort and general satisfaction. That is not average in Bolivia.


Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent food, great atmosphere... couldn't have asked for anything better! A big thanks to the Posada del Sol team!
