Stayed a couple nights before going to Uyuni. Quite liked it, on the border of Sopocachi, the trendiest area in La Paz, lots of restaurants. Had a private room, staff are nice enough, restaurant I thought was a little pricy, especially beer, 25 which is like 3.80 US or so. High for a hostel.

Good value for money. A little loud, but to be expected with a hostel, so if you don't mind sleeping with earplugs it's all good.

Feel at home away from home. Hip, central, comfy boutique hostel with lots of activities and add-ons. Staff are lovely and truly service minded, just one episode less so at the cafeteria.

Great hostel vibes with hotel comforts. Allowed us early check in which was awesome. Being in Sopacachi, it is close to a lot of restaurants as well as other places to visit, even one of the telefericos are walkable. The front desk folks are super helpful. They also arrange for a lot of tours if you are interested. The cafe down stairs is very good where not only the hostel folks but even locals hang out.
