It's a nice place to stay with really good service. It's 4 blocks away from main square so don't expect extreme silence. The room was big and so was the bathroom. Clean and with a lot of light. The price is good and the service, I repeat, was really good. ... more

  • La Paz or Arequipa
    From Uyuni/Oruro I'll have to choose (don't have time for both): go to La Paz or take the road to Arequipa (via Chili). Which city and surroundings should I choose?

We stayed in Arequipa twice, and wish we found this place sooner. The amenities are great -- everything from an air hockey table to table tennis to video games, to two TV rooms.

This place was weird . . . it looked as if it was an old school or something that was turned into a hostel. It was clean enough, and the bathroom was nice, but it was kind of creepy.
