Liked: Great bright decor with amazing murals all over the walls. Airport pickup, travel agent downstairs,great breakfast, reliable wifi in the room, excellent water pressure in shower.

Disliked: Safe box did not have lock in it. Even though we were on the 4th floor, the street noise was very disturbing in the morning. Construction noise also started at about 9am.

Liked: Great location and views. Coca tea always on hand in the Reception area. Staff speak good English (which is helpful when you are stupid like me and can't speak very much Spanish).

Disliked: I wish I had known not to put toilet roll down the toilet - we blocked the bog on the first night, which they fixed promptly, but then the flush broke and we were too ashamed to report it.

Liked: Great hostel located about 5 minutes walking distance from the main tourist area of La Paz (there were enough people around at night to walk from from the Sarganaga restaurants). The staff were so helpful to us - calling taxis, giving directions and calling a Doctor to visit the hostel when my husband was sick. They arranged us a transfer from the bus station to the hostel for $5 and this was just perfect to have a reputable driver waiting for us at 6:30am after arriving off an overnight bus. The breakfast was great and was served from the terrace overlooking La Paz. There was consistent hot water showers.

Disliked: The wifi isn't the strongest from inside the rooms (not strong enough to skype).

Liked: The location is perfect, breakfast is really nice! We did a tour to Death Road and couldn't have breakfast that early, but that wasn't a problem, they made something especially for us.

Disliked: It's a bit old fashioned and, compared to other hotels, quite expensive for what you get. For the same price you can stay in really modern hotels also in the centre.

Liked: Excellent location and atmosphere

Disliked: The person at the desk on our last night there forgot to wake us up, then, when asked to find us a cab for the airport, he tried to lock us (together with other tourists) inside the hotel, then he disappeared on the streets, We had to get ourselves a cab to get to the airport. I still believe this was a singular incident, as the other staff proved themselves professional. One other thing, the amount to pay was slightly different (higher) than the one we expected.
