A bit overpriced at about $32 USD for a double room, but it is in la paz. Lady was quite nice when we wanted to switch rooms about 10 minutes after arriving (window in first room had no lock). Nice, informational staff, one of whom speaks english. Breakfast included is the usual rolls with butter and jam, with tea and...

Good place in La Paz, not very expensive with warm shower, good rooms and kind staff (except may be the bartender). It is also possible to eat there but I have lots of question about the freshness of the products. Both my girlfriend and me and also some others people were pretty sick the night after eating there. And we...

Very average infraestructure with poor breakfast. The beds however are quite big. Laundry is excellent but a bit expensive. Not much of a party hostel either. The bar is not well hosted no one stays for drinks or party.

We stayed in this hostel because there wasn't another hostel with beds available 6h at tge morning. The receptionist was really nice, and he allowed us to have a breakfast even before we checked in. In terms of facilities, the rooms are ok, the bed are very good. The shower isn't always hot, but if you tell the staff, they...

When I went to Bacoo Hostal it was my last option. For my surprise, it was better than expected to me for many reason: The price is fair, if we see the service they offer. The quality was quite high for such a low price (Almost 20 R$/day). The location is adequate, breakfast is good and the staff always were...

Bacoo has a nice chilled vibe, its cheap and the beds are excellent. Breakfast is shiyte but this is the norm in Bolivia (stale bolivian bread, butter and instant coffee). No kitchen - quite normal for La Paz. Awesome hot showers with good pressure. Brilliant Barman - Shaggy is a superstar, cheers for the good times brother :)

From the moment I stepped foot in this hostel, I loved it. It's tranquil, the beds are ridiculously comfortable, everything is clean and tidy, amazing views of La Paz from the top floor, great outside garden area - the list goes on! However, step foot into the bar and discover the shadiest, rudest and laziest bar manager you've ever come...

This hostel was a good place to stay for a few days and located close to the center. There is a bar where you can order some drinks and food and I have to say the food was delicious. The cook did a great job! Moreover you can play pool and table tennis in the bar and there is a...

Arrived after a night bus from Sucre to friendly reception staff who had a twin room ready straight away. After little sleep on the bus we were grateful for somewhere to sleep for a few hours before exploring- we were even allowed breakfast that morning for free (although this only consisted of bread rolls&jam). A few issues though...the bedroom door...
