This is 1 of the cheapest places to stay in La Paz but considering the price it's pretty solid. It is in a reasonably central location. It has reasonable wi-fi which was easily the quickest wi-fi I had in any hostel in Bolivia in the month I stayed there. There was hot water in showers but as it was gas...

Hair from million people all around the shower and the floor. Toilets were simply disgrace, poos in every single toilet, again never cleaned. We got a room which smelled...

If you're looking for a cheap, safe place to stay in La Paz, this is it.

This hostal is very cheap and you get what you pay for (we paid 80 BOB for a double). The rooms are very bare, the bathrooms are dirty but you do get a comfortable bed and unlimited hot water. They also have a kitchen you can use.

This hostel is probably one of the cheapest hostels you can find in downtown La Paz! The rooms are ok and the price is also good! They offer a sharing kitchen that is one of the reason increase to go there if you wanna save money. As I said the rooms are ok... be ready to be cold at night...

This place is really cheap ($10 for a private room) but reminds me more of eastern Austria than the sound of music type. Hints: Secure toilet paper, get ear plugs, check the gas "bomb" before hoping for a warm shower. Oh, and the beds are kinda "bowled" in due to their advanced age.
