    Really enjoyed my stay here. I arrived well before check in time, was allowed to go straight to the dorm. The lady from reception even brought me up a cup of coca tea. Was a really nice touch. The breakfast was really good. Nice kitchen facilities. Overall do not have a bad word for the place. Only thing, could have had lockers but I never felt as if my valuables was in danger. Thanks a lot for the stay!

    This is an absolutely spectacular hostel, the kitchen is well equipped and the private dorms are affordable, quiet and huge. This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to have a few nights to yourself where you can cook and truely feel at home, would stay again in a flash.

    Very calm hostel, away from the city center. It was clean and I had everything I needed (hot showers, delicious local breakfast with fresh juice, pancakes, tea coffee and fruits, a nice outdoor area, living room with Netflix...). The staff were kind, polite and respectful; always ready to help you and give you informations. Never had problems with Wifi. Very good price. It's the perfect place if you dont want to stay in the center of the city close to the noise and pollution.

    The Cathedral is located in a nice area of Sopacachi with a supermarket just up the road. The terrace area has a large kitchen and tables which is not offered in many hostels in La Paz. Our private room was spacious with a comfy bed. The only negative thing was that the bathrooms were not particularly clean - the toilet bins were overflowing often and the showers and floors could do with having a deep clean.

    Very Good

    We booked a room here but when we showed up they put us in the hostel across the street, the Greenhouse. The room was bleak, showers were cold, the common space was nice enough. We also booked our Uyuni Salt Flats tour through the hostel. Sergio (the owner) was super helpful but oversold us a bit. He said a bus would pick us up from his hostel, but instead someone walked us to a collectivo, from there took a cab to the bus station where we waited for 2 more hours for a freezing night bus.

    The staff was very lovely and made the experience better but the place itself is quite dirty, the sinks had lots of hairs, showers were little and dirty. We stayed for 3 nights, we didn’t see many people only us basically. It felt more like a stay at a guest house as I think the family lived there. The dorm we had was okay, the bed sheets didn’t feel dirty but didn’t feel clean either. Location wise it was okay, it was quiet !

    We stayed in this hostel one night, we were able to check in early as the staff were really accommodating however the bathrooms were really dirty and the hot water didn't always work. Our room was really hot with no fan or air con however our beds were really big and comfortable.

    Je suis restée 3 nuits dans cette auberge. Depuis mon arrivée les chambres et les salles n’ont jamais été nettoyé. Les draps des anciennes backpackeuses n’ont pas bougé de place depuis leurs départs. Il y avait des poils dans les lavabos.. Je n’ai pas eu une seule fois de l’eau chaude non plus. Par contre, le personnel est sympathique. Tous les matins, il y avait le petit dej pain fruit thé ou café. L’auberge est bien située. Mais je ne recommande pas...

    Friendly and helpful staff though they messed up our booking and put us in the greenhouse hostel instead. Our dorm was accessed through another larger dorm. No security lockers. Breakfast of a roll and butter/jam. Only 2 toilet/shower rooms for each gender. Worst part is that this is a smoking hostel which we weren't aware of. Not in the dorms but in the kitchen and living/dining room communal space. Frankly this is disgusting that you have to cook, eat and relax in essentially a smoking area.
