We spend 3 nights at this hotel in Nov 2012. Costs was $15 CAD each night for 3 of us sharing (cheap) and breakfast (cereal, coffee, juice) was provided too! I would stay here again if doing another budget holiday. There were other travelers who we chatted with in the common area so it was fun. The shower was always... More

This hotel is full of junk, which is amusing at first. There's even a dead monkey driving an old car. The owner calls it "art", but that's getting a bit pretentious. I felt like one of the junk-yard cats from the musical "Cats". It has free Wi-Fi and the managers are friendly and decent. They're supposed to provide free breakfast,... More

Great hotel, great location, with a great staff for a traveler on a budget. The lobby area is outdoors and is filled with the eccentric art of the owners which makes for a great ambiance. Cold beers for sale but minimal kitchen amenities. Stayed here for 4 nights would definitely stay here again!

Totally worth giving it a try. Yeneka is in a great location...huge grocery store witin a 5 minute walk, tons of shops and the "beach" is just two blocks away. Each room has its own personality. Room doors width is wheelchair accessible but the bathrooms are not. With a little assistance you can get over the less than one inch... More

If you're interested in comfortable beds, clean surroundings and quite, then the Yeneka is not for you. But if quirkiness, clutter and backpacking travellers are more your metier, then definitely put the Yeneka on your list. The staff is friendly, the collection of objet d'art is amazing, and the funk paint job and ceramic tiles make the rooms fun and... More

While this place may not appeal to everybody, it does offer a very unique experience with great location and excellent service. Great place to meet like minded travelers. If manicured resort type hotels are your thing please look elsewhere. There are plenty of expensive hotels on the beachfront with very informal service and sterile environment. However if you are looking... More

I needed a place to stay for one night en route to a dive trip. Someone from the dive company recommended this hotel as an inexpensive, clean and funky alternative. It is conveniently located, about a 5 minute walk from the bus terminal on the Malecon. It was perfect for what I needed - clean, air conditioned, free WiFi. A... More

We didn't stay here, we happened upon it while touring La Paz. The entrance caught our eye so we popped in. The attendant was really welcoming. He showed us around & even showed us one of the rooms.
