Property Description

The Vagabundo Hostel counts in total 5 rooms (2 5-bed dorms, 2 rooms with private bathroom, 1 luxury tent for 2). A garden and a covered outside area allows the traveller to enjoy the marvellous climate of this village. The most important part of the hostel is the Bar, a 'Peña Folclórica', a place, where you can enjoy a perfect fusion of Bolivian and international style. This Bar is the only place in town where you can enjoy folklore live music. We serve Bolivian and international drinks as well as some typical dishes.

Samaipata is among the most beautiful village in Bolivia. There are several important attractions as it has an archaeological side and a national park. Good restaurants and cafes of international level make it easy to stay here for a while. The Vagabundo Hostel is located just in the middle of town, only one block away from the main square (Plaza principal). This is important, due to the fact, that there is no good transportation system in the village. Additionally: experience shows that the smaller the village, the more in the centre the traveller wants to stay.In the same street of Vagabundo hostel (calle Bolivar), you will find most of the Tour Operators are located, also the museum and some cafes and restaurants.

There are 4 categories: rooms with private bathroom, dorms, tents and a camping ground. The rooms are all 20 m2 big and decorated. One of the rooms with private bathroom is the “Spanish Room”, the other the “Cattle Ranch Room”.
Our luxury tent with mattress is covered by a roof, which keeps it dry even in strong rain. We do have Internet (WiFi) and a kitchen for the guests. Breakfast buffet is included for rooms with private bath, dorms and the tent.

    Excelente hostal! Piezas grandes y muy limpias. Los baños compartidos muy limpios con jabón, confort y toalla para manos. El desayuno rico. Lo mejor los anfitriones, fueron muy amables con nosotros y nos entregaron mucha información sobre Samaipata. El hostal está recién partiendo y probablemente va a seguir mejorando! Les recomiendo ir.

    Hostel was dark and unwelcoming. The rooms the same. Mosquito net didn’t fit tightly. Atmosphere in bar unfriendly. Discrepancy about price on second night. A staff member charged too little and we were asked to pay the rest before leaving. The staff member was embarrassed because the owner had told him to do this. Why didn’t the owner explain this to us himself the night before? We paid the full rate but the owner told us we couldn’t have breakfast as we were leaving too early.

    Very cheap hostel so wait for poor facilities. Really poor security, no lockers, front door open and weird backyard so basically anyone can enter to the rooms and take your stuff. It was really small room of 5 people and you couldn't close the moscito net properly so we kept the door closed and as you can imagine it was like 40 degrees in the room by night. Only 2 bathrooms for all guests.

    It was cheap so I was expecting basic but they hadn’t even bothered to sweep the room. There was dirt all over the floor and rubbish under the beds. Breakfast dishes were still piled up in the sink and the rubbish bin overflowing when I was trying to make my lunch. They had a private dinner party the first night I was there so I couldn’t use the kitchen which they could’ve emailed to let me know. Shower didn’t drain so there was a decent amount of water on the floor and ran out of toilet paper.
