Even though it has a nice and very pleasant courtyard, the rooms need improvement. We were a group occupying 5 rooms. There was a leak in the ceiling in one of the rooms; too bad we had a rainy night!!! The meal offered to our group did not meet our standards: served 45 minutes later than the requested time, service...

We checked in and proceed to make payment at the front desk. The reception initially quoted 282Bs for our room. However, this was not what was stated on agoda.com and we should have paid an equivalent of 40usd (about 278Bs). We handed over 302Bs and the reception promptly accepted without giving us change. We gave up arguing and stayed for...

I booked a bus trip to Copacabana with the travel agency of the hostel. It was said, they pick me up 7:30 am at my hostal. But the driver for the trip never showed up. I tried to call the numbers written on the contract but nobody answered the phone. At 10 am i finally reached somebody. The driver had...

We stayed 3 nights at Hostal Republic. There is an extremely nice courtyard where you can sit and eat breakfast etc. There is even WiFi there. Also we were very happy with the service provided in the reception. Downsides for the hostal was that our room was in quite bad shape. There were holes in the walls and it was...

We picked this place because of the great review it got on lonely planet but I can only assume it is out of date. The rooms are freezing cold although you are able to buy hot water bottles at reception for 30BS. The wifi is temperamental and often drops out. It is not the hotel's fault that they are building...

Rooms very clean and confortable. The breakfast included but it's basic coffee/tea and bread. The staff is friendly and the place very quiet, perfet for who want silence to sleep or just chill on a sunny afternoon.

This hostel is awful! It is run-down and temperature of the rooms is freezing. No heating or additional blankets are provided. It is like sleeping outside on a mountain. The cafe area has no atmosphere and the food we ordered was disgusting. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the hostel has good tour connections. Yet they did not...

We tried to get into Wild rover but (luckily) they didn't have a double room for us. Across the road is this beautiful hostel. It is a cheaper option in a Beautiful colonial building with a nice quart yard. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the room was the closest thing to a hotel room we have...

“Stayed in both the doorms and shared rooms. The doorms can get a little noisey at night because it is over the restaurant and by the road, but this really wasn't a problem.”
