Well located right at the Witches Market. Very old, run-down hostel though. Dark and dated. Shared bathroom was not very clean and the shower tap had insulating tap hanging off it. Breakfast was very basic and limited. WiFi really unreliable. Reception staff not very helpful or friendly. Definitely better hostels around.

The room was dirty, sheets threadbare, numerous tears and stained, blankets & pillows falling apart and heavily stained, holes in walls, plaster peeling from walls, bathroom dirty, taps & toilet leaking and loose tiles. I arrived after midnight, slept in my clothes and left early morning without even unpacking my suitcase. Staff were not interested when I cancelled my 3... More

Cheap price for a single room. Very central location. Hotel is simple and a bit old looking. I had no hot water in the shower. Small breakfast with just a little bit of bread and some bananas. Not a fancy place but OK the money I payed. Helpful staff.

The hotel needs a makeover the room was dark, dirty and dingy. The hot water pathetic as well as numerous faults within the room- tap covered in plastic tape, broken towel rail, towels threadbare and light switch hanging off the ceiling. The room was freezing no heating. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else.

The hostal has a great central location near the Plaza San Francisco. It also has a "great" location right next to a Dinner & Cultural Show joint that blasted "authentic" Andean music until 11 PM. Each night I sat in my windowless room, in which one of eight outlets actually worked, hoping to find some sleep. Sometimes that happened before... More

Great location with and quiet and relaxed vibe. Stayed here for 8 nights and switched rooms a couple times. One of them had no windows which was not the best, but the other two rooms were bright, clean and had cable TV. Breakfast is average but free. The people the the reception are friendly and speak English. Wifi can be... More

Little bit overpriced. But rooms are clean. They clean the bathrooms every day. Water is hot. Breakfast is basic but ok. One bread is not so much. It was not possible to open a window. Location in the old city is super. Wifi is only in main areas, not in the room.

Good location near restaurants and artisan shops. The hostel has a lift which means no lugging your luggage up several flights of stairs! Beds were comfy and there was a lovely view of the city. Hot water wasn't too bad, the bathroom floor got absolutely soaked though, and didn't dry overnight. Basic breakfast supplied. Wifi was sketchy but I think... More

Good location - really close to San Francisco Church. Clean rooms. Cold water- showers are not hot, at least not always. Depends on the luck. Cold rooms - at least we had extra blankets. Poor Wi-Fi - only available in common areas but too slow. I don't know about the other hostels in La Paz, but in Tupiza - Bolivia,... More
