The hostel was pretty alright, it's a party hostel, so if that's your thing, then it's fine. It's actually 2 buildings. One where the private rooms are, and internet works, and the other one, the overflow parking, filled with dorms. It had a nice cosy bar, It was really close to the bus station, and had a good atmosphere.


Good hostel fine ect, but the lady at the bar couldn't care less and just sat there and looked stoned. Our food was disgusting.


Is very close to the bus station and easy to get to the main touristic places. The bad side is not having a kitchen on the building, you have to go to another building to cook. And the started painting the bathroom while I was there, so everynight the room had a very strong smell of paint. And the bathroom on first floor was out of order, so it was needed to go to another floor to use the bathroom.


We looked around a fair bit to find the best place to stay in La Paz and overall, I think we found it. The beds are comfortable, the rooms not too cold with the help of extra blankets, the wifi is pretty good, the showers are hot and you get a free breakfast and beer every day. It's a 10 min walk to town so not right in the centre but really not far. We stayed for a week and have no complaints. Some towels for the room would be welcome if you're looking to improve. Would stay again.


we stayed in the b and b so was very quiet at night but was great to have the bar next door (which had a good atmosphere). booked the death road through the hostel which was great as well. stayed for 5 nights without any problems.


The Adventure Brew Hostel was a very good place to stay. Although it has its own bar, I wouldn't exactly call it a 'party hostel'. It's more of a fun hostel in which you can drink downstairs and sleep peacefully upstairs. The staff were helpful, there's a booking agency in the building it's well-maintained. Each bed comes with a decently sized locker and the showers have between hot and very hot water and the Wi-Fi is good when working. Overall, definitely stay here for the price.


Efficient hostel close to bus station and easy walk to city centre. Breakfast included. Sociable atmosphere. Kanoo tours have an office here so can book loads of stuff for you. Lockers in rooms. Hot showers. Wifi a lityle temperamental. Overall woukd revommend.


Might have had the most clueless staff, both locals and traveling staff, I have ever come across. They weren't rude or anything, but just very stupid. This was a complaint from everyone I talked to who stayed there. Other than that, I think this is a great place. Good breakfast, atmosphere, great beds (lockers underneath/personal light/plug socket). So the owner set up a great place, he just needs to hire better staff!


Very,very friendly personnel,good price,good location,good security


I stayed at both the B&B (2 nights) and the Hostel (1 night). They are a 30 second walk from each other. The B&B is quieter than the hostel, which was loud until around 1am most nights, then partygoers would head to other hostels or clubs in La Paz. Water at the B&B was generally hot, staff and security were friendly enough. There were extra blankets that helped during the -1 degree nights. Hostel restaurant was good. You can stay at the B&B, still party at the hostel, and sleep better. I liked.


This is a good hostel. Your classic large, busy loud hostel. So if you want a quite time head next door to their B&B place, we stayed there was very nice and was good to be able to still head next door and get around the bar and games etc. On one NEGATIVE note, they stuffed up our booking at the start (not happy after 20+ hours on buses) and then when we left they tried to charge us more as we had not payed when we arrived ( the lady stipulated when we checked in that it was fine at end.


The Adventure Brew Hostel was a good value for money hostel with a fun backpacker vibe. The biggest drawback of this hostel is the amount of stairs in the building which are a killer when you arrive in La Paz and get hit with altitude sickness. Aside from that, the atmosphere is really quite good, with a functioning bar / restaurant that is very affordable. The Hostel is also served by a on site travel agent that was very handy for organising out of La paz tourist trips.


Had a double room with private bathroom. Clean room, good size. Really enjoyed the pancake breakfast. There's good security with a doorman however this may be becausenof the area, a 15 minute walk to the centre, it did not feel particularly safe at night.


Good hostel if you're planning to stay a few days in La Paz. Unfortunately it's not close to the main restaurants and supermarkets. Wifi connection needs to be improved.


The rooms are noisy and cold but clean. The showers are either roasting hot or freezing cold it's hard to wash yourself . The wifi goes on and off.basic breakfast of pancakes and coffee/tea. We got our laundry done there and had to pay for it twice as they had no record of us paying the first time .The doors are locked at night and we were locked out of the hostel at 3 am for about 15 minutes in the cold as the security guard was asleep.


This was a decent enough hostel - nice that they did food, and the onsite travel agent was useful. The rooms were very cold when I was there though (not heated at all in winter), and I there are places in La Paz with better atmosphere, and closer to the attractions.


This hostel is a short walk from the bus station but a good 20 minute walk from the downtown attractions. This hostel is large so it isn`t the easiest place to meet people. The shared bathrooms are clean but hot water can be sporadic. The dorm rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Lockers are provided in both the dorm rooms and at reception. The breakfast is all you can eat pancakes which can get monotonous. The staff are English speaking and helpful and you get a free beer each night .


Nice pancake breakfast and big, open rooms with comfortable beds.


Good stuff: Quite social with nice bars and free beer each night. Liked the pancake & coffee breakfast. Rooms spacious & nice (but ours faced a wall & was always a bit dark - I'd ask for street side). Staff nice & very secure. Bad stuff: It was absolutely freezing! There are 2 heaters to hire but every room needs one & it shouldn't be extra. Showers bit unreliable. Food was a bit average & a bit on the cold side. Located near bus station but nothing much around it & bit of a walk to town.

Dear, we appreciate your review. We are sorry about the cold, La Paz is a cold city in winter and there is no gas for heating systems, its a pity you didnt ask for a hot bottle we offer to our customers, thats the best third world country solution in cheap hostels like ours. We hope you can come back !


Both places, the B&B and the Hostel are gread. Good bars, nice and helpfull staff and always cool people to hang out with.
