The hostel looked alright at the first sight, the bathroom could probably be more hygienic, and a plug next to your bed would be nice. The breakfast is NOT a buffet and is definitely not enough for an adult. All the above is forgivable since it was cheap to stay, what ruined the stay for me was the bites on...

Was not impressed with the hostel at all. Where do I even start ... The beds were squashed into dirty rooms and found myself being bitten during the night. Bathrooms were nasty and hot water didn't work properly. Frequently found myself being woken up in the early hours of the morning as the members of staff decided to loudly run...

They are very flexible about date and time of your stay. Helpful staff. Nice and clean dormitories but there is little bit cold. Also in the shower. But they always had hot water. Good location, just few minutes to the center and ATM infront of the building. Dont forget to bring your own lock (rather 2)! Hostel full of backpackers.

We stayed in a Double room and it was a horrible experience. First of all, the room's condition is way too bad for what you pay. Bathroom is so tiny and the hot water doesn't work properly. But what annoyed us the most is where the room was located. It's right next to the bar, so called "common area" where...

I stayed 2 nights over new year and I really enjoyed the cosy flair. Nice spaces to hang arround and nice terrace on the roof. Good location to walk arround. The negative point is that I think I got sick from the hostel dinner. Also other people got sick there. A few days after I left I went to hospital...

The hostel is in a very good condition. Beds, rooms, toilets and showers are clean and relatively modern. The breakfast which is included in the price is a bit to less and borring. The personal is very friendly and helps you with every question you have. Also the travel agency in the hostel can give you information to every important...

God, I hate dorm rooms. But still, this was alright. You cant expect to get a really good sleep in an 18 bed dorm. Good beds. No lockers in the room, and the ones at the reception are in use. Other, smaller, rooms do have lockers. 48 bolivianos is too much imho. Still, could be worse. The cafe/bar is okay,...

- bad service > refused to give an extra blanket when sick with fever and vomiting -not like the description ie no ping pong or fusball table. Also was still under construction - asked to keep food in the staff fridge which was then eaten - freezing cold showers - no kitchen facilities Wouldn't recommend better and much cheaper options...

Stayed here for three nights in the 18-bed dorm (49 Bs). The beds were very good, although we were at the far end of the room and there were no curtains so it gets light very very early. It's next to a busy street but I did not really consider that a problem. Showers were very good (to Bolivian standards...

It's a really nice hostel, and a good relaxing area. And a good breakfast included. But the beds... even when we choose a 18 beds door room it was quite and good air and the best was the fantastic bedsheets!
