Colibri Camping La Paz: La Paz Campsite with spectacular views

This is a superb new mountainside campsite with amazing views over the valley and river below just outside La Paz. It's bathrooms even have chandeliers - it's like staying in a hotel! The site looks over the valley of the flowers and there os a grassy area for tents, a cabin and a couple of teepees for hire. The place is so tranquil, has fire pits and an outdoor kitchen with more equipment than my one at home and loads of hammocks and sitting areas in the gardens for enjoying the views and birdlife.
It is really near the Valley of the Moon, one of the main sites tourists visit near La Paz and not far from the city if you want to visit for a day or night out.
We also went horse-riding and trekking nearby and would really recommend the campsite to anyone who enjoys nature and peace in a lovely setting.

It also has a hot-tub with great views!

Hotel a La Maison: Apartments in Sopocachi

A la Maison is a brilliant place to stay in La Paz. Our host Ludo is welcoming and full of suggestions for where to go, where to eat and how to do so safely.

We'd booked one large apartment for our group of 5, but were offered two separate apartments instead. Good idea, more space and 2 bathrooms.

A light breakfast is supplied

Each of the Apartments is different. We found the facilities excellent and the space great. Furnishing (beds, seating etc) are comfortable. There are basic cooking facilities.

The top floor apartment is light and airy, and has views of Illimani from the windows.

And then of course, the wonderful Ludo, a brilliant host

Hotel Rosario: OK tourist hotel

Hotel Rosario is a good tourist hotel, located in a busy shopping street in the centre of La Paz. The building is old, but charming and the common areas are nicely decorated with exposed beams and wood staircases, doors, and windows. Room was clean and spacious, equipped with three single beds, TV (with international channels), Wi-Fi, safety box, and a mini-bar. The breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold items, and we also had a steak for dinner one night at the restaurant. It was not cheap, but very good... The staff was friendly and helpful. Free coffee and tea was available in the lobby during the day, a computer room with 6 computers for free (high speed internet), and a small travel agency in the hotel lobby (but didn’t use their services). I would stay here again anytime…

EL SOLARIO: LA PAZ

Pros:
- Very centrally located, on the street behind Church of San Francisco and within a stone's throw of the Mercado de Hechiceria, the touristy street of Calle Sagarnaga and Mercado Lanza for cheap juices and cheap lunch.
- Room is high-ceilinged and quite large, several beds to a room
- Water is adequately hot... very important here in La Paz.
- Located above a travel agency, so all your travel needs can be met easily.
- Computers for internet use are available
- Kitchen for use downstairs
- Laundry available
- Highly popular, so it is a great place to meet other backpackers but it can also mean it gets filled up very quickly

Cons:
- Showers / toilets are unisex
- If you need them to store your luggage after you check out, note that they just dump all the backpacks (and there are MANY, considering the popularity of this hostel) into a storeroom. When you are ready to leave, you have to literally crawl in and take out the backpacks one by one to try and locate yours at the bottom of the pile. Any effort at this altitude is a huge effort.

Hotel Fuentes: Very central, good value

Very nice hotel right in the center of La Paz, just around the corner from touristy and steepy Calle Sagárnaga. Only a short walk to the Witch market area and the central Plaza San Francisco. To enter the hotel you pass through a nice patio, thus the location is very quiet. Room was nice and clean, even had televsion but no heating (extra blankets provided). Hot water in the shower all day. We payed 160 bolivianos (20 dollars) for a two-bed-room with bathroom, a light breakfast included. Nice and helpful staff. Free internet computer in lobby, if occupied you'll find plenty of very cheap cybercafés in Calle Sagarnaga.

Nice views from the balconies just outside the rooms.

Adventure Brew Hostel: Fun place to stay

A mix of private and dorm rooms.

Cheap.

Fun people staying here.

A bar on the roof that has a range of beer and great food served nightly.

They run trips to events on a regular basis.

Free pancakes and cofee, plus cheap extra breakfast choices like ham, eggs ect.

On the main road running though La Paz, very close to the centre.

No heating, but water bottle hire and plenty of blankets.

Hot showers.

Free beer in the rooftop micro brewery

Jach'a Inti: Decent hostel but cold

The good things:

Clean large rooms arrange along a long patio, some with private bathrooms and some with shared facilities.
Decent kitchen and clothes lines outside to dry your stuff
Secure entry via buzzer
Very central
Price was reasonable

The bad things:

The arrangement of the rooms around an outside patio means that the rooms are cold. Like all hostels in Peru or Bolivia there is no heating and we were absolutely freezing. Going to the toilets in the evening meant going outside from a freezing room and inside freezing toilets - not nice.

Very poor sound insulation between rooms.

Conclusion:
OK option for a hostel but cold and noisy on occasions. We had a cold so moved on somewhere much better and warmer with private bathroom for a handful of bolivianos more.

Sagarnaga Street

I didn't sleep here, but walking around the centre I noticed in this street there were many cheap hostels, backpackers style, and a lot of agencies offering trips to El Salar de Uyuni and so. So I think this should be a popular place for backpackers...

My room at Republica hostel

Here you can see my room at Republica. At the left there were huge windows through which all the light of the patio came in. But it had dark courtains for the mornings too!

Hostal Republica

This beautiful old Bolivian house was once the home of a President of the Republic. It has 2 shady patios and all the rooms open to the courtyard, so is very quiet and nice.
Rooms are simple but clean and the WC (shared in my case) was nice with hot shower and all that stuff.
They have internet connection free for guests and a pleasant bar.

Single room: 10 USD with shared bathroom

Alojamiento Universo: The cheapest ? Le moins cher ?

Disappointed by the want of bus to Puno, we had to find a hotel for one night in La Paz (where we will return !!!). This hotel, close to the bus station, is very cheap and run by a sympathetic old man. So, why not recommanding it ?

Decus par l'absence de bus pour Puno, nous avons du trouver un hotel pour une nuit a La Paz (ou nous reviendrons !). Celui-ci, pres du terminal de bus, est vraiment pas cher et son proprio est un vieux bonhomme bien sympatoche. Aussi, pourquoi ne pas le recommander ??

Cheap : 13 bolivianos (less than 2 USD) per person. Clean.

Pas cher : 13 bolivianos (moins de 2 USD) par personne. Propre

Hotel Alem: Cheap and convenient location

It's nothing special but it does the job - it was recommended to us by other travellers and I'm passing the recommendation on. The location is great, and it's cheap. Also has hot showers (although they use those dodgy South American electric heater things).
