Apparently, other hostellers were feeling the altitude and were howling at the Moon whilst on the rooftop quite late at night, 13MAR2020. Sadly, I missed the brekkie because my pedaling the “Death Road” with Gravity Bolivia meant being outside by (06:30), 14MAR. I really appreciate left luggage, which I picked up during that evening, and then went to your very fine sleep box at the airport. I appreciate very much your fantastic hostel being so close that pick-up/drop-off by Gravity Bolivia was ¡¡¡muy facile!!! It is too bad that more-disabled (I use a cane) people cannot ascend the steps. Overall, a great experience, and I’ll stay here whenever I return. You certainly have my enthusiastic “iWheel of Approval!

It's a good place for what we pay. Good location to walk around the city. The staff was very kind making us breakfast earlier.

Do not book this hostel if you want a private room. The room is situated within the male dorm which you have to go through to get in or out and is very noisy.breakfast is not existent and the beds where terrible. For the price they charge for a double room you can have a 2 star hotel in the centre with a great breakfast and much better facilities

Cuisine inutilisable, douche froide, pas d'ordinateur pour accéder à Internet, un service de laverie hors de prix, quasiment aucune prise fonctionnelle, des hôtesses pas vraiment aimable. Points positifs : bon petit-déjeuner, dortoirs propres, sanitaires corrects. Conclusion : très cher pour un service médiocre, même avec le discount de la carte (pensez d'ailleurs à vérifier qu'elles l'appliquent bien)
