    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!

    Really chill place with a cool bar that has live music from time to time and a sunny terraza with hammocs. Helpful staff for planning any activities and comfy beds. Ideal place if you want to rest and take in the delicious Bolivian cuisine before or after the crazy chaos of La Paz. Loud streetside dorms (would recommend the 10pax dorm which is not on the street).

    good location, friendly English speaking staff, lamp at bed and convenience for using laptop n charging cellphone, locker provided, if they could accept card it would be perfect:)) Friday n Saturday nights u can enjoy live show of the bar from 3rd floor terrace. the only shortcoming is street noise, but it's fine for me I didn't have any problem with that. people who are more sensitive to noise should avoid choosing 8bed female dorm.

    A modern hostel with clean facilities. The dorm beds are comfy and the showers are hot and powerful. There's a good sized kitchen and dining area to use, plus a large TV room, balcony and bar area. The breakfast is simple but functional and the staff are helpful. The hostel is in a great location for exploring all the main places in Cochabamba. The atmosphere was quiet but that is to be expected in low season. Thanks for a great stay!

    Beautiful hostel. Big room with big lockers, comfy beds and a charging point at each. Good shower and good Wi-Fi. We arrived very early off a night bus and were allowed to stay in the tv room until check in. Good breakfast with eggs made to order and good bread.
