Best staff, awesome food, nicee bar (luxury) and perfect location. Only thing that could turn you off this hostel is it isnt really 'bolivia' but step outside and your in the heart of it. Loved the view from the rooftop, unreal!

Loki the hostel that more it absorbs the spirit of peace: cozy. I was with four friends at a room of five beds - there are numerous options for any backpacker - with a private bathroom. cleaning was very good (even more as being Bolivia) and the sheets were good! there was plenty of lockers to put what we wanted to keep save (both in the room and the reception), a cozy television room, several computers with good internet, a large terrace and an awesome bar. Seriously, the bar was amazing, every night the parties were very good (and you do not hear noise from inside the room) super mivimentas, with many beautiful people, good music, good food and good drink! people working abroad is almost all - all speak English with you there - and young. Furthermore, the central hostel is super. So, i would never go to another place in La Paz. New Year's party was simply spectacular!

If you want to party, this is the place for you. If you want a good night's sleep, possibly skip this one. We made the mistake of booking this place on our first night, needing sleep suffering with a bit of altitude sickness. Party goes on til 2am and you can hear it in the rooms - earplugs essential!

Fairly clean and good amount of bathrooms. Rooms were decent size.
Breakfast awful but included (bad coffee and dry bread).
Staff are grudgingly helpful but much friendlier if you speak in Spanish.

The one plus point is the in-house travel agents that organise decent, value-for-money trips.

This hostel is in a beautiful building in a great location for exploring the town on foot. The staff is very helpful and is very prompt in responding to your questions via email. The rooms and common areas are extremely clean, spacious, and the bathrooms have hot water all day as well as toilet paper and soap (unheard of in most of Bolivia).
They have a bar that is a great place to hang out during the day if you want to watch a futbol game, and a happening place every night-they offer good food and cheap happy hour drinks.
The beds are very comfortable, plenty warm, and even have 2 pillows. There are small lockers in the room for your valuables-bring a padlock or buy one from a street vendor. There is wifi throughout the hostel and several computers for guest use, though it is fairly slow during the day due to so many people being online.
This hostel is extremely popular, so make a reservation if you know when you will arrive and how many nights you want. They have rooms of all sizes, and the price is very good for what you receive. They will help you organize things to do during the day as well as trips to do nearby. Breakfast is included but is just coffee/tea and bread; they even keep hot water available all day. You can order eggs, omelette, juice, etc though for a good price if you want more to eat.

Room Tip: Rooms with less dorm beds will be quieter-this place is rockin until 2 am, so if you want sleep, it...

A good clean cheap hostel and a nice bar with good food and lots of beer in a good area of the city - can get a bit noisy with drunks late at night and the bar staff seemed be be more drunk than the guests but that is the style of Loki - Lots of loose menand women - You don't even need to leave to see La Paz! - but that would be a mistake - La Paz rocks.
