If you are tired from the backpack trail and look for a place to relax and perhaps go on a hike or two, this is your place. When we were here, not knly were we the only guests in the hostel, we seemingly were the only tourists in town. The hosts are a great and friendly couple that we had...

Easily the best place in Quime. Lots of info provided on their webpage and easy to get there by bus directo from La Paz/El Alto. Well worth a visit. Take money though as there's no ATM and I've no idea where the closest is. Seems to have a Western Union in the one bank in town though I didn't try...

We ended up staying in Quime a week cause we fell in love with this place and the village. The ranch is beautifully built and has so much rustic charm. Miguel and Tom were two of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet, they will tell you all about the ranch and the surrounding areas and are so...

I am happy to say that since the last reviews, Hostal Colibri is under new management, now being run Tom (Bartholomew) a Spanish transplant who is committed to running a successful hostel. We truly enjoyed our stay tat Colibri; two days in Quime ended up being ten! The hostel is absolutely beautiful, set on a hill overlooking the city. It...

We had a reservation but when we arrived around 6pm, nobody was around. After looking for a while we finally found Franz sleeping in his room. We ended up in a room upstairs, no lights, no locks. Franz said he ran out of gas so no meals could be prepared. The kitchen was so dirty and stinky anyway that we...

My wife and I went back to Bolivia this year to see the Carnival in Oruro and to see the Salar, which was too flooded last year when we were there. We decided to balance out our two week trip by doing something different by visiting Quime, which is kind of on the way to Oruro from La Paz. Marko...

After being on a 5 day tour of the Southwest circuit and spending each night somewhere different we were ready for a little R&R. That is exactly what we got. It was so nice to cook for ourselves in a stocked kitchen. The location was just lovely. We loved sitting and watching the birds every morning and managed to see...

I live in La Paz and Quime for me is the perfect place to run away from the city's rush. The best thing about it is that it's off the tourists trails. It's not mentioned in Lonely Planet, so only really special people find out about this place. Marko's home is a piece of art. Rooms with amazing furniture, all...

Stayed just one weekend but would happily spend a month! Don Marko El Gringo is a most welcoming, friendly host, and a veritable mine of information on the town, the country, and most importantly the hikes! Thanks to him we felt we really got the most out of our too-brief stay in this stunning hidden gem of a town. Don’t...

I visited the Hostal Rancho Colibri in September of 2011 on a whim. I was trying to decide between Coroico and Quime. I'm not sure how the two compare but I'm glad I chose the less touristy (me being the only tourist in town) option for an adventure. Quime is sleepy town, not a well known tourist destination but Alaskan...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A colonial hacienda built within pre-inca style terracing, overlooking 50 miles of valleys and mountains. the Hacienda Colibrí was built on a barren eroded mountainside above Quime. I restored the soil and terracing. It has a bird refuge with 50 species of birds within the hummingbird garden and enchanted forest. The hostel is located 4 blocks uphill from the alcalde in the main plaza and one block right, ask the kids for Don Marko “el gringo”. ... more   less
