    A bar with beds attached; until they reopen the original Loki in La Paz, give this a miss

    I expected much from Loki, this place had raving reviews. Sadly though they relocated in March to an old hotel while they apparently refurbish the original. The location is good, the views from the bar stunning but there it ends. The rooms are tired, smell terribly of damp as the showers leak through the bathroom door onto the old carpets. Wifi is non existent; the fault does not lie with "Bolivia" as reception kept telling everyone as other cafes nearby had good access. Other guests had stayed at the orignal Loki & were very disappointed with this one. If you simply want to get drunk & run screaming around the corridors at 4 in the morning then this is the place for you, otherwise go elsewhere. Wild Rover I heard great things about.

    This hostel runs like a machine, from the events hosted to general cleanliness and the professionality of the staff. It's huge, there's always a party, and the kitchen serves decent food (though the free breakfast is just a white roll, butter and sugary jam). The wifi sucked, but that might be better in the new location. Noisy, busy hostel; noisy, busy city.

    All in all a great hostel. Very clean with excellent facilities. The bar area is well maintained with decent food at a good price. Loki's really comes alive at night. With pool, bar games, drinking games and lots more to add to already vibrant party atmosphere. Although it can get a bit full on, it is difficult to avoid getting a little trapped in the mayhem, there are rooms available in quieter areas.

    Beds are large, warm and comfortable, there's free wifi and even though this is a party hostel, it's surprisingly easy to find peace and quiet, both in the quiet common area downstairs away from the bar, and in the rooms, which are silent even when the bar is rocking. The bar itself is beautifully decorated. Definitely recommend - I was surprised by how much I enjoyed myself here.

    I will not stay here again - this type of hostel is not designed for travellers who want to actually experience the culture of the country they are visiting. Most people in the hostel are from Australia, and spend their time in the Loki bar drinking. They sell food at the bar also, and most people don't even explore other restaurants in the city.
    Stay here if you want a culture free party. If you want something a bit more real, I hear that Adventure Brew Hostel is really good, still has a good social atmosphere, but not a little Australia in Bolivia

    Despite the warning, Loki is a fantastic hostel with friendly staff and many fun events throughout the week.

    It was very clean, we stayed in a 8 man dorm with bathroom. The food was excellent, although a bit expensive. Drinks are very cheap. Get a room on the ground floor as the second floor can get a bit loud at night due to the bar.

    Best hostel ever for travellers wanting to meet other travellers and have a ball. Planned to stay a few days, ended up staying 3 months and returning. Will return again! This hostel has everything from comfy beds to private bathrooms, comfort food and the best bar in South America. Do it.

    After the coldest bus ride ever in the whole world, I arrived at the hostel in La Paz. This hostel was recommended to me as it was apparently a party hostel. My foot finally got full feeling back from the arctic bus ride after about an hour. Woohoo no frost bite. I had a power nap, a bit of admin and booked the Death Road for the next day. As I had …
