“good hostel”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Really nice place. The staff were really helpful in giving ideas about restaurants and good bars in the city. Also the lady working in the tour office which is part of the hostel was a little gem for sorting us out flights out of the city when there was a miners strike and all of the roads were blocked off meaning no buses. Great location and really clean, the room we stayed in was a private and the shower worked great and was a really nice sized room. Just beware that it really is hard work breathing in la paz and if you are worried about this id suggest asking for a room on one of the lower floors. nearly forgot 2 mention but the breakfast was really good for the 3 days we stayed here, fresh fruit, bread, eggs, juice and coffee, evrything you needed to start your day in la paz. overall a bit more pricey than some of the places we looked at but defo worth every penny. stayed 31st march to 2nd april

I loved staying at Sol Andino. The staff is so helpful. I needed to get an early breakfast one morning and they prepared something for me. They do their best to help you with anything. There is an in-house tour office who can help you with anything you'll need; tours bus tickets; pick ups.
The rooms are nice and clean. The hot shower is good. Breakfast is good and there is plenty. They even make you eggs, just the way you like it.
I would definitely recommend this place when staying in La Paz.

Generally nice hostel. As mentioned in other reviews it is quite a walk up the stairs to some of the rooms. Room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was pretty good, with nice bread provided.

Aside from the hostel, do not get your laundry done by them! When our laundry returned we were missing three items and some items returned more dirty than we sent them.

We tried to negotiate a refund with the hostel for the items lost, but they were extremely disorganised and slow about it which almost made us miss our bus connection.

We arrived late after a long trip from Chile. Picked up at the airport. Room was great. Hot showers! Stong wifi! Good breakfast. But the best part was Paula. Paula is an on site travel coordinator. We needed to get to Arequipa, Peru and within minutes Paula not only arranged our bus tickets- she came with us in the taxi to the bus station, found the right bus and made sure we got safely on our way. We only had 20 min to do all this which is why she came with us to help us navigate. Unbelievable service. Such a sweetheart. Thank you Paula for making our very short stay in La Paz so memorable.

Staff were very friendly, the place was very clean and it was very good value for money. The location was good and it was only 10 mins walk into the centre. Hot showers and wifi which I needed, I would recommend this hotel

This hostel was really nice. The rooms were very large with nice bathrooms and beautiful murals. Also really comfy beds and the wifi worked really well. Breakfast was delicious and filling. The staff was really friendly, always willing to help us make plans and recommend good places to eat. The hostel is located in a good location, lots of tourist agencies on Calle Llampu, and also near lots of stores and street vendors with amazing authentic Bolivian crafts, jewelry, clothes. etc. I recommend this hostel!
