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.

Disliked: Nothing

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.

Liked: a one stop shop: good PAID meals, Internet connection is not as bad as previous reviews, bathrooms and toilets are impeccably clean

Disliked: PARTY hostel... (with all its attendant sorrows: see below) breakfast is pathetic & only instant coffee (for the accommodation prices, it should be better) perhaps this hostel is actually a bar around which a hostel is then established: the canny Irishman who owns this fine establishment promotes excessive alcohol consumption at its internal events/parties, such that each night (and most days) it is noisy, smoky and filled with an endless and often grotesque parade of Australian and British yobs (er...why did they come to Bolivia for this?) But it´s an effective formula: recently, more Wild Rover Hostels in Cuxco and Arequipa.

Liked: The bar really makes this place. Came back the second time for the bar. The rooms are really nice

Disliked: The staff at reception really let this good hostel down. Stayed here 3 months ago and the staff are still just as rude. The tv room is pretty poor for expensive hostel as Tv is broken. Food was a bit of let down as being expensive and sometimes worst then street food.

Liked: Great party place and a chance to meet alot of new people everyday. Overall cleanliness was great and the showers were hot

Disliked: Dorms rooms can be noisy for late into the night so it was hard to get an early night if you had to get up early in the morning. Also a used condom was on the floor of our dorm for 2 days without being cleaned.

Liked: PARTY hostel! this is a really good place if you want to meet people and go out and have a good time in La Paz. Do not stay here if you want relaxation or sleep! We stayed here in at the weekend in the middle of our stay in LP to have some fun and socialise. It has a really good bar with really nice food (english and irish). There are drinks promotions and events on every night and the bar staff go out with everyone each night so it feels like one hostel family! Very comfy beds with duvets! This is the place to party not to relax and it serves its purpose well!

Liked: A little Irish party village - you can get lost here for a long time!

Disliked: There were several major thefts while we were there - including 3 lockers being smashed open for cameras and laptops. There is a safe in the main office but one of the people who got their stuff stolen had tried to keep it in this safe but was denied. Also, anyone can come and go from this hostel and not all the security cameras work.

Liked: Very clean and friendly hostel, I´d recommend it to any backpackers looking for a couple of days of home comforts (the food is SO GOOD!!) and parties - as the staff described it, every night is party night!

Disliked: The parties could be heard throughout the hostel, although they did only go on til 2am
