Liked: Great place to meet people and good craic at night. The toilets were always very clean. It was also very close to the centre and it seemed very safe. Dont go here if you want to sleep!

Disliked: Some of the staff were very unfriendly which was a pity because some were fantastic. The Irish and English staff behind the bar were great but the Aussie guy was very rude. Also some of the girls at the front desk were not very helpful. We also heard lots of people lost clothes in the laundry. The food isnt great and my boyfriend got food poisoning from it.

Liked: its great as a party place but you can also get some sleep too. the bar is great for food and drinks. always cheap deals for drinks. great building. there always seems to be someone cleaning something.

Disliked: as some of the staff are backpackers at least one of them is bound to be a useless twat, so even when its empty in the bar its hard to get served.

Liked: Everything is very clean. The showers are brilliant and the beds so comfy. They have thought of everything that a hostel should have. Plug points, lockers, atmosphere,common areas, plenty of showers, hot water, party nights, good food etc. you name it they have it. Just don't be one of these people to give it a bad rating for being noisy. It states that its a party hostel and it is. Be prepared!!

Liked: very clean, great showers, cool bar, good food, helpful staff. it's a party hostel, but if your room is not right next to the bar, it's easy to avoid the party.

Disliked: dorms a bit crowded, but depends on your roommates, if you like it there or not.

Liked: Everything. A key thing for me is always a clean bathroom and they are probably the best in South America. Spacious dorm room where you can sleep if you`re not in the mood for partying. Awesome bar area with excellent food and well-priced drinks. Good tours (including the best Death Road service provider on site). Highly recommended for all travellers.

Liked: Bathrooms are very clean. The beds are very good! Toilet paper in the bathrooms and towels to dry your hands. A lot services to offer. The staff of the reception is very friendly and helpfull. They're situated in the centre. It's was quite (i had a dorm tucked away from the bar, dorm A), which's very pleasant.

Disliked: Some staff of the bar isn't friendly and helpfull. They care more about social contacts then serving you. Most of these people are travellers who need money and decided to work for a while there.

Liked: Great party hostel. Decent bar. Probably the best showers in La Paz.

Disliked: If you want peace and quiet, don´t go here. Pretty much only English spoken between the travellers here, as it is mainly North Americans, Aussies, English & Irish (myself included)... most people are in groups, and there are a good amount of assholes. Can´t bring outside alcohol in, and the bar is also smoky as fuck. Only come if you want to party... we stayed in the Cusco Wild Rover first, and actually didn´t want to stay here, but it was the only thing available the night before arriving in La Paz. Despite the bad, yes, it is worth staying here.
