Hostelling International Bolivia presents HI-Hostel Versalles which is within walking distance from the bus terminal and Cochabamba’s city centre. This active town in a highland valley (2’500 m) is right in the middle of Bolivia and enjoys an eternal spring climate. Thanks to its nice little garden and sun-terrace all rooms are warm plus we have hot water available 24 hours a day. We also have international phone service, common breakfast room and TV room. We pride ourselves on our quality and cleanliness and an international atmosphere is waiting for travellers. The colonial centre has a Spanish based foundation but in the region there is a lot of much older history like the INCA-fortress – pre-Inca holy places, even dinosaurs footprints in ToraTora can be seen. In contrast to the Inca history it is well worth paying a visit to the palace of the famous tin Baron Simon I Patiño; Palacio de Potales built between 1915- 1925. Not far away is ‘La Cancha’ – the biggest daily market in halls and on the street – well stocked, good prices and mostly crowded. HI-Bolivia offers you a lot of travel information and helps you in co-ordinating your travel plans - to Sucre - Potosì – La Paz – Chapare (a subtropical jungle/ rain forest region) – Santa Cruz - just ask for assistance and we are only too happy to help! Stepping out from the bus terminal, turn left and follow the Av. Ayacucho 1 block. Cross Aroma Street and you’ll see the blue HI logo. After midnight just ring the bell and the security personal will open the entrance door! | more......
