security is very good, location ok, staff very unfriendly, it took us 45 min to check in at night, very complicated to check-in there, i didn't like the atmosphere there, it is a really party hostel and it is a huge hostel with seven floors, everything very clean, wifi does not work properly,


The bar is awesome, with super nice atmosphere and staff and wine offering. The view from the bar is good too. The location is alright, there's a big market nearby so there's something to see, around 10 mins walk from the central bus station and not hard to find. The toilets are not too clean though they have sufficient powerful and hot water.


The good - powerful (hot) shower, lockers in dorms, decent bar with amazing view over the city, friendly staff (new bar manager is great). The bad - internet was the worst we've come across in south america! Shocking. You're limited to common areas, but even then it was constantly dropping, not letting you connect, and generally just sucking. Our four bed dorm had one plug in the main room which didn't work, and so were limited to one plug in the bathroom to share between us!


Great social hostal. Very close to bus terminal and central area of La Paz. If you want a quiter night get a room on the lower floors as the bar is on level 6.


WIFI DOES NOT WORK !! BARELY WORKS EVEN IN THE FIRST FLOOR AND BAR the rest is quite good... but it really pissed me off that I did not have wifi for 5 days another thing, loki is a party hostel and the music goes on until 1am (and I loved it), but if you are not willing to party.... staying in the 10 bed dorm on the 5th floor is impossible to sleep


Definitely a party hostel. Very loud party-music whenever the bar/restaurant is open which can be heard in some of the rooms. But the location and food is great.

Super comfy beds in really specious rooms with nice duvets. En suite bathrooms and the water was always hot. The food served in the bar on the top floor was yummy and good value. Only thing is getting wifi isn't great but you can definitely get by especially in the car area.


Superb Hostel. Definitely would recommend Loki to anyone visiting La Paz


This has to be the ugliest and least comfortable hostel I have ever stayed at. The building is very run down and dirty. The beds are filthy and very uncomfortable. The bar food is horrible. I have scored security low as the cleaner left her key in our room door so anyone could have entered. Staff are ok,not very friendly or helpful. Central location is good!


Very good party hostel, everyone was so welcoming. Easily able to stay for much longer than planned ! Blood bombs are lethal ! Definately would go back .

It is a huge hostel and therefore quite anonymous. You have to be very outgoing to get to now people or have luck with your roommates. It is also a party hostel and if your room is close to the bar and/or your roommates are partying hard, ot will be difficult to get enough sleep. Nonetheless it was a good place and having a bar and restaurant in the hostel is quite practical.


DIEGO i miss you=) just another crazy partyhostel where you can easily forget that theres actually an amazing city outside cuz you wanna hangout at the hostel allday and allnight long. i can really recommend that place to anyone who likes to have a good time with people from all edges of this planet. cheers straight outta Switzerland.


Not that good wifi, unclean bathrooms, good location though! No breakfast but you can buy it in the bar. Nice rooms.


This hostel is very big and many travellers are in huge groups which makes it very difficult to meet people compared to a smaller hostel. The kitchen food is good and the staff is very helpful. The rooms have great views too. The wifi here is terrible and never worked. Good stay but I would personally give another hostel a try. Location is decent, but you everything is around 15 minutes walking distance.


Central location to markets & easy / cheap cab to bus terminal. helpful staff, especially the tour desk. the rooms were dark but spacious. beds were big and comfy. hallways loud at night, especially as drunk people come from the bar, and you can hear it in rooms. wifi was slow & barely worked, and if so only worked in common areas. No breakfast is included but restaurant is good and affordable - only place cheaper is street stalls.


Quite noisy in the nights, because of the bar.


Not the best. Dirty rooms, cheap rate


Great hostel in safe location. Right over the street you can get yummy street food and everything is close enough to just walk. You've got an amazing view from the roof top bar and I can only speak for me and my friends that we had some great nights up there! ;) Also theyre always looking for people who wanna work at the bar for a free night accommodation. So it might be worth it giving them a call in advance and ask for a job.


Loved it. Hot showers. Good restaurant with cheap food and plenty of stuff going on.


Clean, friendly place to stay, but very loud at night. It's essentially a bar with rooms to sleep on the floors beneath. If you're looking for a party hostel, this is the place to stay.
