        In the centre of old La Paz, fascinating, including the hustle and bustle in the streets, LOKI provides a decent room, more than decent food and an EXCELLENT service by his young, enthusiastic and dedicated staff of professionals and volunteers! At night it turns into a kind of Club Med, entertainment centre, with lots of fun... If you don't mind being surrounded by people that could/should call me "granddad"... certainly the place to be! I'll be back...

        Stayed there for a week, wasn't too bad. Great if you just want to party all the time not so great if you want to sleep before 2am. Room was nice but we kept having power cuts and the toilet flush broke. The food also took hours to come! Good location though close to all the markets and San Francisco square

        There are nicer places to stay in La Paz. If you like a party atmosphere and drinking games as well as a tattoo night whilst drinking, this is the place for you. Having said that, the views are great, food is tasty and it's central and if your room is on a low floor, the bar noise is negligible. Cons: Internet is awful, you have to ask for your room to be cleaned, even with the 'no tissue in the toilet' policy.

        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.
