    Quiet laid back atmosphere

    Bathrooms could have been cleaned more often and showers could have been hotter.

    Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Matresses were terribly uncomfortable, bathroom was stinky with too much mold in shower and breakfast was inadequate.

    The best thing was checking out and not having to ever go back

    1st they charged us double what we had booked using booking dot com. 2nd they put us in a double bed slightly bigger than a single until we complained. 3rd When they moved our room. Theyforgot to mention that bfast wasn't included in the change. 4th the kitchen staff are crack heads and actually set the kitchen on fire at about midnight. We all had to get out of our rooms. However. It was other guests that woke us. Not staff and at no stage did anyone guve us an apology. The staff are so unfriendly. We didnt see them smile in 4 days. They are unhelpful and dont know answers to questions about their own place. I asked if we could order a packed lunch for the following day. Reply 'I dont know' after finally ordering our lunch. When we went to pick it up in the morning it was sitting on the reception bench and not in the fridge. I asked how long it had been there and the cleaner said it was there all night. Then it took me 20mins to get my money back after talking to 4 different staff. im sure some people had a pleasant stay but we hated it. Even when we tried to be nice. The staff we horrible and bitter. the actual hostel itself is ok. But the way its run is awful.

    Good location, clean and comfortable beds

    Most of the staff looked forced to work and barely cracked a smile.

    The garden/courtyard area and it's close to the other big hostels such as loki and only a 5-10 walk to otherside of central city such as witches market area.

    Breakfast was awful, one day we didn't even get it as there was no one to cook it. Wifi is awful.

    The hotel is opposite a party hostal, which is great as I like to sleep when I go bed!!!!!! Clean tidy, showers nice and hot, staff helpfull price excellent ( it is Bolivia) lol. And please try the stake (but ask for it rare if u like medium rare) it's again amazing..... Still can taste it in my mouth, the lady who runs TGIF resturant, (so sorry for not remembering you name) she is the best thing at republica.... Trust me she is ace. Ow and the tv has HBO!!!

    Wifi slow at peek hours, but I guess that's most places when they pay for a cheaper option (my opinion)

    Good location

    Our stay was unfortunately a little disappointing. We ate dinner at the restaurant and our order was incorrect twice then came out cold and the lady in the kitchen was very rude when we asked if we could have it heated. I think she was frustrated with the volunteers in the kitchen however this was no reason to be rude to customers. The toilet in our room also leaked and when we asked if we could change to another room because of the smell and hygiene the staff were very rude and unaccommodating, we did finally change rooms however felt like we were being a nusance. I have never written a complaint about anywhere before but was sadly disappointed with this place.

    the situation , the room with own toilet and bath.

    Breakfast is very basic if you don't paid more. I booked a room with share bathrooom and toilet , when we get there it was like a jell with window , dark , no ventilation ... I was obliged to change my booking for a room with ensuite 15 dollars more by day... .so 45 dollars more for 3 days!!! not fair!!!!

    Nice clean rooms. Private and common shower both warm and clean. Good continental breakfast.

    Very cold in the evening. Very slow internet. The kitchen was closed during the day, when I needed hot water, I had to go to the hostel in front. The hostel is united with the tour agency, that provides good service. The lady at the office told us to contact staff in the hostel when we arrive in the morning to get a tour the same day. She said that staff calls someone in the agency and everything would be organised. When we did it, staff at the hostel told us, that they are separate and he can't contact anyone, so we didn't get any tour that day...

    Avoid like the plague! The place is ageing badly. We booked a triple and were given the choice of an upstairs or downstairs room. The downstairs room (103) smelled like kerosene, I couldn't even enter the room. The upstairs room which we had to take (203), has mouldy old blood stains on the wall paper. No windows, just a dark box with a door which opened up into the corridor right next to the shared bathroom. We were even told that "towels weren't included in our booking" even though it was $38, which is ridiculously expensive by Bolivian prices. The "free breakfast" isn't available unless you ask for it, you go to the cafeteria and they give you a breakfast menu, if you order from that you need to pay. The free breakfast only includes 2 pieces of toast and tea anyway. We went for a short walk and found a much better place for 1/4 the price!

    The restaurant was horrible. Don't even bother with the free breakfast.

    Very simple yet comfortable. The history of the place is a great added value.

    Breakfast. We still don't know what other than water the "coffee" actually is!

    - Good Q/P - Nice room (ours was with private bathroom) - Structure of the building elegant and adorably old fashion - Helpful staff

    Furniture is a bit old

    The booking confirmation was accurate, English speaking staff were very friendly, the secured gate was helpful for me to sleep, Flora at the restaurant was kind when I was getting the altitude sickness, the office stored my big backpack when I was gone for a couple of days, the Internet around the office was fast enough, hot shower was amazingly great!

    The bed sheets and pillow cases look very old. I am not sure if it was dirty though. I just needed to sleep, so I got my own towel around my face.
