Liked: Great sociable atmosphere no doubt helped by the in house bar and its wonderful rotating group of volunteer travellers working behind it. Especially bar manager Billy who is a general behind the bar. Not to forget the wonderful girls behind reception who have the answers to every question you might have. So in short its the staff that make this hostel.....and thats the most important aspect of any hostel.

Liked: This is a party hostel with a good bar and fantastic food available for reasonable prices (35 Bs for a huge delicious meal). Facilities like bathrooms are checked every hour and hence are really clean.

Disliked: Staff sometimes is unflexible (e.g. bill can only be paid in the end of the stay and not in-between). If you need perfect silence for sleep, you should choose another hostel.

Liked: Loved the bar ambiance, the ability to get food and drink placed on a tab to be paid at check-out (very convenient) and the shower facilities (with a separate part to keep clothes and towels hooked up).

Disliked: The staff (with a few exceptions) were generally very sullen, bordering on angry sometimes. Even the smallest of requests was greeted with a massive sigh and a frown, as if they were being asked to do something completely unreasonable (rather than their job). Even when greeted with a smile and talked to very politely the reaction was the same. I understand fully well the hardships of working in hospitality but this is the same throughout the world and hospitality staff still find a way to deliver service a little bit more enthusiastically.

Liked: You meet a lot of social, cool people here.

Disliked: A little too loud sometimes. Really a party-culture hostel, which can be positive or negative depending on your preference.

Liked: As a solo traveller I got to meet people in the bar. If you don´t want to venture out into the city at night you don´t need to.

Disliked: It can be noisy at night as although they have security, people would be playing music in the courtyards on the other side of the hostel at 4am and it didn´t get stopped. The food is overpriced for Bolivian standards.

Liked: Its in a good location near the main square! The bathroom is provided with hot water as well as clean!

Disliked: As it said it is a party hostel,so can be really noisy and growded with crazy partypeople! Even so the staff is friendly they are really strict and leaving you too much messages for recall you on reception! Some rooms dont have any socket,because there are special lockers fro your belongings which have to be charged in the reception area...

Liked: My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the bar. Great atmosphere and decent food and drink, really liked the fact that travellers were working behind the bar.

Disliked: During our stay we was unfortunately woken up by sex, in the dorm bed next to us so we didn't get much sleep. We knew it was a party hostel but didn't realise we would have to endure this kind of encounter!
