Bad experience. Staff were useless and extremely unfriendly. We had people walk into our private room once at 2am and once at 7am(door was locked).If we had not been in the room all of our stuff could have easily been stolen. When we reported this to the front desk they only said "that's too bad". The bar is constantly crowded of young drunk people looking for all day parties. If this is what you like this hostel is perfect for you. Internet doesn't work ever. Rooms were clean and comfy.
Best Loki I went in S.America. No wifi in the room, but only on 6th/7th floors and not always working
Except for the toilets on level 7 which you can't lock and the lack of soap in the "public" bathrooms its a very nice hostel. The breakfast is basic (white bread, jam, butter, tea, coffee and milk) But then they have very good additional breaky for little money (I recommend the pancakes!) The food is pretty good all day and you basically wouldn't have to leave the hostel at all. There is almost everything. Beds are comfi and rooms clean.
Great stuf! but extremely noise hostel. Also, the breajfast is very simple.
Fun place to meet people, comfy beds, English speaking staff and it's own tour desk, a good party hostel.
Good hostel if you're in the jelly-wrestling scene. The wifi is pretty patchy but the rooms are clean and the showers hot.
the staff at Loki (in particular the lovely Bolivian guy that works the night shift) was so helpful and the travel agency helped me book the best trip ive ever been on (baracuda death road biking). the food was great and happy hour drinks were so cheap. the only downfall for me was that wifi didnt work very well and there is only wifi in the lobby and the bar. but other than that it was a great stay and the location was fantastic. thanks Loki!
One of the best hostel i ever stayed on. The atmosphere is great and you have all you need there: rooms with excellent views, cheap drinks and good food.
It's a good place, but it's a little bit disorganised. The staff ignored the Hostelworld reservation and divided my group in three rooms, besides forgetting our airport pickup. We had sent emails confirming before we arrive, but it didn't work. At the breakfast, always miss something. Sometimes it's the hot water, sometimes it's the cups, sometimes it's the bread. Anyway, they are in a good building. There is hot water.
Huge hostel with decent facilities. They could use more space in the restaurant/bar area though.. there was never enough seats for everyone to sit. Limited space in the common area as well. However, the rooms were big, the location was great, and the parties were fun. So overall, it was a good experience!
Not in a nice colonial building as mentioned in lonely planet anymore. New location is a former business hotel that is rarely prepared to be a hostel, rooms stuffed with beds, no sockets, no wifi in rooms, barely wifi in common areas, etc, full with noisy travelers that party all night long - on each of the six floors! But staff is nice plus its central.
Great central location. About 5 - 10 minute walk from the Teleferico. A few minutes from all the markets. Just opposite in the square is a great market to get cheap food. Security on ground floor you have to typically show your Loki wristband. Can definitely tell the place is an old hotel as all the rooms are ensuite to my knowledge. Nice rooms, nice facilities. Felt secure, however due to the size of the place it can be difficult to talk to people unless you're drinking. Loses some ambience.
Not enough seats or tables in the bar so a lot of people eating off their laps/standing up. The staff are what makes Loki one of the most sociable places in La Paz. First room stank of sewage so they moved us to a new one straight away.
Loki in la paz has such a good vibe, we got on really well with the staff who met our needs. Is a big building that is quite echoey so earplugs needed if yo want rest in this party hostel !!!. Good restaurant menu at great prices. Would stay again
Outstanding service, a beautiful bar with great food selection, and nice rooms with private bathrooms! The best hostel I stayed at in La Paz! : )
Very friendly staff, especially the guy who worked the overnight shift!

Awsesome hostel party hostel if that's what you're into good value over all. The staff there are always drunk and don't really know what's going on, the tour staff lack knowledge. You're best to ask the guys at the front desk what to do found them the most helpful and willing to help as they are locals. Great view from bar but if you want to chill out there don't count on it. My friend was just trying to relax at 1pm and there where drunk idiots that just would not leave her only.
