Very nice localization, staff are so kind and solicitous. The beds are not the best, but the baths make up for it. Kitchen is ok and wi fi is fair enough, and a kind of negative point is that they have very few electrical outlet.

Located perfectly in/near the witches market, and boasting some of the cheapest prices we could find. It wasn't the cleanest/most modern place but if you're keen to save some pennies and just need a safe place to sleep - then look no further👍🏻

Pros: Very cheap and great location. Staff are super friendly and nice. Good place to meet people Cons: Not the cleanest. Beds are not comfortable. Internet is very poor. Showers do work but need to know how to use them otherwise get cold water! Great for budget travelers but not for luxury

This hostel is very central, but the rooms are all going to the corridor, where people are allowed to smoke! The badrooms are not very clean and the showers so small, that your hang up clothes will get wet when you take showers. The kitchen is for "free", just you have to pay 2 Bs. for to use it :-)...

We stayed at Cactus several times (always when we passed through La Paz) and we were always happy with the good location and the really nice staff here. The hostal is quiet simple but nice. We could check in already at 7 in the morning without paying extra, they kept our luggage while we went on a hike and they...

Perfect spot for the budgeted backpacker located in the heart of the Witch's market with many room options. It's clean, has a small kitchen on a cover terrance, and has the loveliest manager. She is ALWAYS there to help you with any need with a smile on her face. We almost switched for a cheaper room and quickly ran back...

No breakfast, no wifi, no soccet in the room (to charge phone, camera), and worst of all: no water in de showers. We stayed one night but they tried to make us pay for 2 nights because we arrived early in de morning. But placement is good, and the patio is cute.

The hostel is kinda cute, set at a perfect location and - most importantly i think - the lady who takes care of the place (blanca) is an absolute angel! I went there twice and would go again if i went back to la paz.

By far met the most interesting people on my trip here. The hostel could be described as cheap and nasty but it has such an undeniable charm that will keep you coming back again and again. We had a lot of trouble with the hot showers, but it wasn't a concern to us as the rest of our experience there...
