If you are looking for a longer term stay which is value for money in a good location Landing Pads is for you. It's pretty new even though it's in an old terrace house so floors can squeak upstairs and shower can flick to cold quickly but those are minor issues. It's ideal for people who are working/studying as the hostel is carpeted and comfortable with desks and a veggie garden. Matt is a good, welcoming host with local knowledge. Dorm room had balcony too. Would stay again.

The issues were noise and atmosphere. Firstly the air conditioner did not work and it was a hot night on New Year's Day. This made it a stuffy night with the windows open and Glebe Rd traffic noise. The other issue was the swimming pool. You expect noise on New Year's Eve at 11.30pm but the staff did not close the pool at 9pm as listed (correct me if it's later but 1130pm seems unreasonable regardless) Also the doors and walls don't adequately block other room and passage noise.
Pax Hostel is great whether you want to kick back or take it up a notch. If you want to party it has the basement bar and cheap food and drink deals and activities and an 8am - noon free breakfast. Other features include bunk beds with curtains for better sleeping, tour booking, free bicycle hire and internet. The standout feature is the staff who are friendly, helpful and make this hostel feel like home. Would definitely stay here again.
Staying at this hostel was the right choice for La Paz if you want a quiet place not a party hostel. The hostel is quiet, clean and affordable as the deal seems to one person per room which dealt with any intra roommate security issues. Appreciated the free breakfasts/early breakfasts for my tour days too. I stayed at this hostel a second time after returning from Salar de uyuni and would recommend it to others. Only issue was getting used to the electric showerheads with the one tap.
