    One of the best hostels so far of our 9 month trip. Staff members, Jhonny and Dani, were really kind and helpful upgrading us for free and advising us how to save money booking buses (we saved £13!) Beds super comfy and solid, bathrooms clean, showers hot and powerful, loads of shared areas to explore, restaurant/bar downstairs, decent breakfast and gorgeous flooring. Too many positives to list really. Shower mat in bathroom would be a real win. Thanks guys!

    Excellent hostel. Staff so kind, welcoming and speak excellent English. Helped us to organise bus and gave good recommendations for food and trips. Comfortable beds, warm showers, great food (and not expensive). They let us chill in the tv room until our bus at 11pm and ordered us a taxi. Really couldn’t recommend more

    This is a really nice, well equipped hostel in a good central location. I stayed for one night and then liked it so much I came back. Special mention for Daniela who was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic with everything I asked about. She was also super friendly and remembered me when I came back the second time which made my day - thanks!

    Running Chaski has thought of everything! Each bed has a shelf, light, plug and a big locker with another plug inside. The dorms are comfortable and spacious with an en-suite bathroom. The hostel is in a good location with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The staff have perfect English and are very helpful and friendly. The hostel has great communal areas, a sitting room with Netflix, a good kitchen and a really nice garden to chill out in. Breakfast is included. Would definitely recommend!

    Very nice hostel, close to the center, clean, comfortable beds with light and power plugs, big lockers, secure, there is a bar that serves drinks and food in the evening. Dani at the reception was very helpful and knew tons of stuff about the city and its surroundings. Breakfast was ok. Probably the best choice in Cochabamba!

    Night staff were very helpful and spoke English. They let us use all of the facilities before check in after our overnight bus. Lots of communal spaces and a bar and restaurant. They didn't have most of the beers on offer and our food did take about 45mins but we were advised of this. Good wifi and hot showers.

    Really nice hostel with good dorms, great lockers. Staff were helpful. Kitchen is average and breakfast is ok. Cochabamba itself isn’t the best place but good hostel to stay when you’re transiting

    Hostel had a party the night before we arrived at 6am from our night bus so we didn’t feel very welcome by the staff member when we turned up, however afterwards were some of the friendliest &most helpful staff we have had at any hostel in South America! Lots of good common areas and great cafe on site too. Communal kitchen to use outside of breakfast hours. Maybe because of it being low season there was a bit of a strange vibe in the hostel generally though and we chose to leave early.
