LOKI La Paz

If you want to meet loads of backpackers and party in La Paz then this is the place to stay. With massive themes parties every weekend and music constantly blasting in the bar, you don't come here to sleep. However, on lower floors you can't hear the music too badly if you want a night off.

The four bed dorm my friends and I had was small but comfortable with our own bathroom. Comfy mattresses and an excellent shower and all very clean.

Wifi typically ropey but good enough to skype. There's an awesome TV room with comfy sofas and an endless supply of Friends boxsets.

The food in the bar is good and you can have a tab which you pay off at checkout. The free breakfast is only bread and jam but you can buy cheap hot breakfasts like their mean eggs benedict.

Really helpful staff eg booking buses and help getting to banks or markets. Good travel desk where you can book things like the inca trail or death road.

Overall such a fun place to stay but at the same time a very high quality hostel. I now plan on staying at other Loki hostels in South America as a result!

Firstly the location has changed. This is not the loki la paz you see on the website. Instead it looks like a disused high rise office block. The site is unfinished, undecorated and fundamentally does not work as a hostel. Having come from loki in cusco which was fantastic we expected much of the same. Instead our room was unclean, the sheets were dirty and did not fit the bed, the mattress was covered in dried blood, our bathroom was dirty and cracked and the toilet did not flush. The bar is dingy and dark and the atmosphere completely unlike the loki in cusco. After a drink in the bar we headed to wild rover for a drink instead to find a beautifully clean building set out like a hostel should be with a great bar, live music, fun atmosphere and clean surroundings - we tried to check in here instead but it was full. Essentially this hostel was awful - one of the worst we have stayed in in 6 weeks of backpacking.

This IS the place of you want to party all night, every night. But not so much of you want to sleep. By sleep I mean take rest. If the objective is to sleep with someone else, then again it's a great place. One night, I had a bad headache due to the altitude and wanted to sleep. But a guy in my 4 bed dorm brought in a girl and they had pretty loud sex for a couple of hours. Objecting didn't help much. Also, breakfast was really really basic. The lockers are only at reception, not in your room which may be at the 5th floor. Among the positives, they have a good location and nice views of the town from the top floor bar.

Worst experience in South America, left after 1 night. Met the worst people here.
Rooms were dirty, bar was dirty, staff were semi helpful.
Too many people here, the staff have zero control over the guests and continue to serve them alcohol even tho they can't walk.

Room Tip: The only way to go here is private or somewhere else

Full of 18yr olds who are just a punish to anyone over 25. The rooms were untidy and they didnt even change the sheets after the last guests. This caused a massive issue with the cleaners who accused us of lying. Staff double book dorm beds and when you complain they told us to sort it out ourselves. Breakfast is literally 1 breadroll and butter. Staff are rude and most bar staff seemed more coked up then the tourists. So in conclusion it would be fine if you are 18 and wanted to get high every night and sleep all day. It you are in your twenties or older and actually want to explore lap paz.. don't stay here.

We had a good time at Loki for the most part. Our double room was located on the 3rd floor which was nice because we stayed on a weekend and got minimal noise from the partying upstairs when trying to sleep. Its in a great location and the travel agency is great but unfortunately we had a few bad experiences. Everytime we ordered food it took a minimum of 40 minutes to get it, if at all. This includes one morning when all I ordered was cornflakes. Three out of the 4 of us also got food poisoning from the chicken ceasar salad on our 2nd night which wasn't nice. The last complaint we had was that they were renovating our floor during our stay so we had a constant headache due to the overpowering smell of paint and varnish. However, overall it was a fun place to stay and we made great friends so we would come back, especially once the renos are done!

The hostel is very comfortable but the WiFi is only at the top floor (the bar) and its very slowly. The employees are not very kind. I don't know if they were in a bad mood for those days or they are like that.
