Liked: The tour desks in the hostel are helpful with all tours including death road. When we arrived at 5am, hours before check in, the staff let us rest in a quiet tv room, have showers and get breakfast. The wifi was pretty good at this time, but not so great later in the day when everyone is awake. They do have a few computers for use though.

Disliked: How good your stay here is depends on which room you get. We stayed in two different rooms - one was fairly quiet and the sound from the bar was blocked out through a soundproof door. The other room was so loud - could barely get any sleep. Right next to a common area, people coming in and out all night.

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: Incredible atmosphere! An awesome party hostel with great people! Billy is a champ. They had the Rugby World Cup playing every day too

Disliked: Bar was small and too close to the rooms so caused noise issues but apparently this is cause they were renovating the usual bar

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.
