The hostal in very near to the bus station -maybe 5-10 minutes by foot. We stayed only for one night and spend not much time in the hostal.but the rooms are clean breakfast was standard and the stuff nice.


The location is great. The beds are really comfortable. There's a great selection of tours available and a bunch of Peruvian maps if that's you're next destination. Having a bar, a restaurant, a rooftop lookout, laundry services and a snack bar were excellent bonuses.


Clean and friendly hostel with really helpful staff - we had problems getting out of the city but they helped us out with bus tickets and made sure there was room for us for or more night. Comfy beds and secure lockers in reception for valuables. Basic breakfast but really good bar area with ping pong table and great BBQ on one evening. Location is only a 10 minute walk from the markets/bars/restuarants and just around the corner from the bus station.


I really, really love this hostel. So stylish - I liked the cafeteria - so cool! They have the best beds - wonderful duvets. The location is perfect and the staff is really very nice (as I've read before in the other reviews) Recommondation: 150 % Anita (from Austria)


Very nice hostel. Great looking bar. You can actually sleep here at night (not at wildrover ;)) very friendly and helpfull staff... Good choice!!!!!


Location close to bus terminal. Good terrace and bar but not much atmosphere.


This I a drug party for locals just with bunk beds for backpackers! No toilet paper, no soap, loud music, and looots of local people on drugs partying every night! Shittyest hostel ever! And so dirty!

Great beds, nice rooms and clean bathroom with hot showers. Breakfast was basic, but good. Very helpful staff!!! But don't book Uyuni-trips in the travel agency of the hostel...it's better to book it directly in Uyuni.


It's only 5 min from the bus termianl and 10 min from the witch's market. All things were great in this hostel but the map they gave was not correct sometimes. Recommend to compare with other maps or guide book. Hot shower was good!


Great Hostel to stay in La Paz. Very Clean, very helpful Staff. Nice Bar. Located 5 min footwalk from Busterminal and Citycenter! You can book your next bus and tours there. Only thing missing was a kitchen (but you can order Pizza and can buy snacks and drinks).


Decent hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Need another and/or bigger communal tv area. Various rooms sometimes smell like bathroom.
