Hostal Republica

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Highly recommended by Lonely planet and other travel guides. Right downtown, it was formerly the home of ex Bolivian President Pando and has been lovingly converted into a beautiful spacious Hostal with a relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff, english spoken.

Tours and excursions can be organised through us if required.

Very good 79%

We booked a double room (with one matrimonial bed how they call it) and paid a deposit online and when we arrive they wanted to give us a room with 2 single beds.
We tried to explained that all over the world a double room is made of one bed for two people but the staff at reception started yelling at us and offered us to leave if we were not happy with the room.
We finally had a double room but they charged us 50% extra than what we were supposed to pay and used an exchange rate which is higher than anywhere in Bolivia. 7.2 Bolivianos for 1 USD rather than 7 for 1.
The rooms are cold and grim and the breakfast is not included.
We highly recommend not to stay in thsi hostel, there are plenty of them nearby.
