My husband and I like to travel on the cheap, and I have fun finding great deals at some not so great places. This place is cheap (about $20 USD) and conveniently located with an incredible and cheap taco stand outside, but that's about all the positive I have to say. The rooms are dirty and nasty with peeling paint just sloughing off into your bed while you sleep. The internet does not reach into the concrete cell like rooms so you need to sit out in the courtyard. We stayed 2 nights, the first we barely slept because there were drunk kids in the courtyard yelling all night. You would think the concrete walls would block out the noise but there are vents near the ceiling so the sound just echoes and carries all over the place. The 2nd night was quiet, but we still slept terribly on the awful beds they have here. Thankfully we literally just crashed here at night after spending all day on the water so we didn't need to be in our room much. If you're really trying to save money then stay here, but keep your expectations low.

Room Tip: away from the courtyard where people congregate

As long as you only use the kitchen to boil water for instant coffee or msg loaded ramen noodles, you will be right as rain. The rooms are loaded with character, and the common area is filled with old photos and paintings. The staff were great. The bathroom was private, and very narrow. We are 5 ft. 5 in, and 5ft. 1.5 in, so we are very tiny. However our knees touched the wall when we sat on the toilet. We thought it was funny. If you are are looking for anything at all in this price range, you know to accept some things. A good way of putting it is saying that standards vary the further you travel from home. Sometimes it does become too much, though. The baja is so much pricier than the mainland, and these rooms would go for 200 pesos off the peninsula. Not a bad choice if you are shoestringing. Just stick with the cheap street food.

Very, very, very budget hostel. Beds made out of concrete with a mattress on top. The rest of room fashioned out of concrete as well. Had the feel of a night I once spent in the cells in London. Except, I got more sleep there. Just odd. Managed to get WI-FI and the price was right, but that was about it.

The place was filthy. So much dust and debris around the bed, the place looked like it hadn’t been shown a cloth in years. The water was not running when we got there. The toilet decided not to flush (but run water through the system loudly all night). Large amounts of rain meant that the mozzies were out in force. They made a fair meal out of us overnight.

We left early. Very early in the morning after being kept up all night by a light right outside the window, giving it the feel of sunshine and some other factory like mechanical noise starting and stopping loudly at random. We were here from 6pm to 6:30am. We did not enjoy this. The communal area outside could be nice. It just needs a good scrub and a bit of TLC. I’ll sleep anywhere…but never here again. You get what you pay for though….

This place is very, very basic - rooms have no windows, beds and bedroom fixtures are made of concrete, there was no water in the tap and the 'shower' is literally the end of a hose shooting cold water only. But who cares, you're in La Paz spending $280 a night on a twin with private bathroom. The WiFi is fast although it doesn't reach rooms. Plenty of comfy furniture on the courtyard though, and a collection of books and magazines if you're after some paper entertainment. Extremely friendly service and right in the middle of town. Don't miss the taco van outside! Shrimp taco for $12? Free flowing salsas? Can't beat that.

The hostel is located within walking distance to the bus terminal. It is basically in the city center. This is an old and quite run down building. It had nice courtyard with many seating areas for socializing. There was also a very simple kitchen in the outside area. It was not very well equipped.
My room and all other areas were quite basic and relatively clean. My room had fairly comfortable bed, ceiling fan and small private bathroom. There was no hot water but it didn’t matter. It was so hot that the warmish-cold water was refreshing. My room looked like it has not been painted for years or maybe a decade. The outside had fresh paint and nice bright colors.
The staff was extremely nice and helpful. One person spoke English.
This was an old, cheap but good hostel. It was fine for a couple of nights.
