It is really hard to sleep and enjoy the beautiful nature around La Paz if you are staying at this hostel. I really feel that people go there only to party inside the hostel. The quiet zones are not so quiet at night...
Their WiFi set-up was weak bordering on non-existent, and their breakfast was the poorest I have ever come across.
PARTY PARTY PARTY! This is definetly a party hostel, so if you dont like to party - do not stay here. The bar plays really loud music til 1 am every day, which got kind of annoying the days you just wanted to sleep. The hostel is huge, with 180 beds and 3/4 of the people are guys. Breakfast is good and the restaurant cook good food all day. Wifi is poor, but location is excelent. Even though this is a really good hostel, I didnt have a good time here. I do like to party but not EVERY single day!
Loki is really a party hostel. Our room was right above the bar so sleeping was not an option, before 3o clock. When we came in after two They got angry with us because we were talking at a normal level. The food in the bar isnt cheap but the happy hour is. The showers Didnt have hot water. Also some of the staff were not very friendly or even harassing us. The guy who talks to everybody when you walk in is pretty friendly and always willing to help you.
Only stayed a night, but after travelling Bolivia it was so nice to get here. Good food and drink, cheap. Comfortable wide beds, two pillows! Friendly helpful staff. Showers and bathrooms are SCRUBBED, I saw it happening, the place is clean. Rooms are far from the bar so sleep even when the party is still going. Free breakfast is rubbish, bread jam etc but breakfast to order is great and so cheap I didn't care. Only one power point in our room, 6 beds. I got an electric shock from another plug
Amazing stay!! Great fun and the staff make it even better, always getting people involved in day and night activities!! If you come to la paz you have to stay here!!!! Good food during the day and in house tourist office which help with everything including death road, amazon trips, salt flats and buses!
Very impressive hostel! The building is really remarcable. But I wouldn't return there for several reasons: the no visitors policy, the fact that the computers are virus-ridden wracks and the way that the staff is treaten.
All round decent and well located hostel with abundance of activities. Alot of very young and inconsiderate guests in my dorm during my stay though, and although not the fault of the hostel, its reputation does attract the younger crowd, so be prepared.
loki backpackers in la paz is a very friendly and welcoming place located in a wonderful building. the bathrooms are very clean and the beds comfortable. although it's regarded as a party hostel (and party is possible if you want to :)), we stayed there for four nights, only being in the bar for one night and sleep was perfectly possible as well! the internet was not working very well and we were missing a kitchen but then you know befor that loki doesn't have a kitchen, so it was okay.
We had the best time! Great staff, great bar and food, a lot of fun! The rooms are also really spacious and comfortable! The parties should last longer than 1:30am tho. That was a little disappointing haha
Enjoyed my stay in general and think that some of the guys on reception are worth their weight in gold
A massive hostel with a cool bar. There's no kitchen facilities but plenty of bathrooms. Just okay
Scam alert! At first i booked for 10 beds room but then they changed to 8 beds room without mentioning the difference in price. At check-out, they charged me more even though i tried to explain that it's not my fault. Some of the staff knew so poor English, so they didn't understand what's going on. Other than that, breakfast is incredibly poor and rooms are so damp. -not to mention the noise coming from the bar in the middle of the night! -
Aside from a very unfriendly group in our dorm (just one of those unfortunate things), we really liked our stay. One item I feel they need to address is the lack of staff during breakfast. It's too much to expect one person to handle everything and that can show in his attitude at times. The food is good and big portions, the happy hour is fantastic and the events are well thought out with a lot of energy and enthusiasm involved. Would definitely stay there again.
The check in was a bit slow but after they'd documented everything and tagged us we were given a thorough tour of the facilities. The place is clean, the water is hot and the internet isn't bad. Its a pretty social hostel and the bar serves great food, but equally it was quiet in our room if we wanted some peace. I really enjoyed this hostel and I would definitely stay here again.
This is more of a party hostel than a true 'backpackers' hostel. Its really good for popping though cities and having an immediate group of friends and convenient activities. However, the onsite tour agency's prices are way over market...shop around.
Amazing partyhostel, good wifi, hot showers, free breakfast and nice menu with reasonable prices
Ridiculously noisy even though they have signs everywhere saying no noise after 10, it's more like 12/1am. False advertising too because we booked 7person female dorm but they only seemed to have 9bed female dorms (which aren't advertised) and when we enquired why we were in with more people we were told that's all they had despite us booking well in advance. 9females and one small bathroom meant no hot water if you weren't the first one in the shower. 2 mornings in a row there was no water!
Great location, staff and very happy place! :)
