“A great choice for a backpacker in La Paz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

This was the nicest place to come to after a long time of feeling dirty and sleeping on buses etc. DEFINITELY go with the clothes cleaning place they have advertised there. Very pitiful breakfast but its next to some yum and cheap restaurants. It's within walk of many main places eg. witches market, cathedrals, that famous prison lol. I'd happily stay here again.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

We stayed here for a long time. We ended up staying here again after our 10 day trip into the jungle. The place is very clean and smells it too. The bedrooms are great, nice bedding, comfy pillows, towels, soaps etc. also we had read a lot of reviews about other hostels in la paz and how the water pressure and heat was terrible in yeah showers, absolutely NO problem here they were perfect! Breaks was standard bread and jam. Would be nice to use the kitchen that would make this place even better.

Do not stay here. The beds are extremely uncomfortable and the bedding is old and dirty. The pillows are the worst I've ever slept on. The rooms are dingy and extremely loud. The only positive is it is in a good location, however the hotel itself is a hole.

We arrived at 5am and they let us check in straight away without charging for prior night. Hotel located near lots of restaurants. Street seemed a bit dingy at night.

Room was decent and wi-fi was available on and off throughout our stay.

Nice lounge on top level with book swap and DVD collection.

Staff helped us book transport to next place.

Good but basic

We arrive at La Paz very late, and it was great to find such a great place. The rooms are great, you have always hot water. Its close from the city center. The breakfest its also great in a living room with very beautiful views.

Using Trip Advisor and Booking.com to compare reviews USUALLY stands me in good stead. Not so at Hostal Provenzal. All I can think is that the rooms on Level 1 are appalling and everyone else must have stayed on another floor, or another hotel.

They got our booking wrong to start, twin instead of double. No biggie, they were not sure if that had space though, even though Booking.com suggested they did. We got switched. The plugs did not work properly, the mattress was old, the sheets probably older and did not fit, so we woke up with us sleeping on the mattress. Eugghhh... The lamp was faulty - light flickering. The outside noise was LOUD - even with the double glazed windows shut, and to top it off, the shower was blocked. I insisted we used another shower after reception staff tried to fix the issue with a screwdriver, and that one also was blocked.

In short - this place is a dump, in a great location.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

This place is really well located for the tourist area La Paz. Within a few feet of the front door you have a good choice of restaurantes and loads of tourist shops and agents around the Witches' Market.

The hostel is clean and well managed. There is no social aspect to the place - it's not that type of hostel, more like a basic hotel.

There were a lot of warnings about security but that's probably a reflection of La Paz in general. You're encouraged to leave valuables at reception rather than in your room.
