Liked: Comfy beds, hot water, ok wifi.

Disliked: Staff tried to be helpful, and were nice, but spoke very little English -- this was an issue because I had a room booked through a tour (already paid for) but they kept trying to charge me!!!! It has very little atmosphere, not a good spot to meet people as the communal areas are uncomfortable. There's no bar to speak of, breakfast was VERY average (stale bread and jam..) and the staff were kind of slow, especially to replace breakfast items in the morning. Not so good when you have to rush off to a tour! Don't do your washing here, it is double the price of everywhere else in la Paz, takes forever, and they didn't return my towel - I came back days later and asked for it, and it turns out they had it, but hadn't emailed me to tell me or anything. It is more expensive than most other hostels in La Paz - and not as good! I moved hostels because I didn't want to spend any more time here.

Liked: Its located close, but still quite silent. Has a good atmosphere.

Disliked: Internet is rather slow, Breakfast looks like a buffet, but you actually dont get a lot, the Stove doesnt work,some private Rooms are directly to the dorms and not fully isolated by sound - but it does have a nice atmosphere

Liked: Awesome beds. Very clean and good showers.

Disliked: Breakfast being served late. Not a big deal but if they say it begins at 7 they should commit to it, especially when people have tours to go on and they're relying on it to be served early.

Liked: A localizacao e boa, pois esta proxima a varios restaurantes e bancos na ru principal da cidade. Ha uma agencia de turismo ja no albergue que pode ja conseguir os passeios pelas redondezas e por um otimo preco. E os empregados sao muito atenciosos

Disliked: Nao eh um local que haja integracao entre os hospedados.

Liked: Safe, secure, clean hostel. But - DO NOT stay here on a Friday night if you want a decent night´s sleep (Saturday nights may also be the same) - it is right next door to a place where a fiesta is held and the noise was unbelievable. It was so loud the walls of the hostel were vibrating. Not good when you have to be up at 4am the following morning for an Amazon tour :( Probably ok to stay here during the week, not on weekends.
