It was nice that the rooms had their own bathrooms, although the hot water was inconsistent.
The rooms were dark and chilly, although they do give you the option to rent a heater for the night. There is a pool table, TV and computers downstairs, which is a nice touch.
Breakfast is great, and the staff is very helpful.
Nice hostel in the center of La Paz. The room was clean and had HOT water. No heat but I didn't find it cold. It is in a busy area of La Paz and only one restaurant was close by - but it was wonderful and we enjoyed a great meal. They arranged a taxi to the airport for me in the early morning which was very nice.
