We stayed 5 nights at the Onkel Inn. The location is perfect 10 a minutes walk to the historic center and 15 minutes to the Sopocachi neighbourhood. For the price (we are in the capital, the capitals are always a bit more expensive) you get a great location, a nice breakfast and a quiet night and good sleep! We recommend... More

The bedsheets looked dirty and I found a lot of foreign hairs in my bed. When we told the service employe that the toilet paper ran out she told us to use the other bathroom. Things for the breakfast often were gone or refilled very late. The sign with "Bar and Happy Hour" was outdated. The staff knew nothing about... More

The bedrooms are clean and light. The prices are very good for people with a smaller travelling budget. Breakfast is included and the service is good. In this hostal you live very central and everything can be reached by foot. You should try the red cap walking tours!

This is a pretty low key hostel, and there is not much 'happening' in terms of social activity. It is a good place to relax and utilize as a pass-through hostel whilst going on large excursions. Wi-Fi is pretty good, and it is quiet, so good for detox.

We stayed here 12 hours as we only needed a place to sleep. It was in the back of what seemed like a small indoor mall which seemed strange but once we got to the hostel itself we were quite content. It was a cold night but there were plenty of blankets. Good wifi. Lots of young travelers who were... More

The hostel is with a boring breakfast, that only lasts for max 2 hours. It is recommended that you buy some extra eggs or fruits from the local market for subsidiary. The beds are not all equally good, some are good and hard, and some are like holes you lay down in. The WiFi is good in the hotspots. They... More

I have stayed at Onkel inn at several occasions during my studies and travels in Bolivia, mayby in total 3 weeks. The main draw of this hostel is its quietness, something that is very hard to find in La Paz with all its trafic. I have sleeping problems and wake up very easily and because of that I stayed at...

Onkel Inn is a perfect example of why one should only ever take LP recommendations when their plans change suddenly and one finds themselves without wifi and in need of a room! We were not surprised to see it rated at 2.5stars once we had checked in and got wifi access. Expensive for questionable hot water without any pressure, beds... More

Too expensive for what it offers, just the basics, and with the typical behaviour to the tourist ''pay a lot for nothing''. The breakfast was disappointing and the general impression as well. The location is ok but the place had nothing to do with what we expected.

“Our room was up two flights of stairs which was tricky with all of our luggage, so if you have some bags, ask for a lower room!”

“The Double Private room with shared bathroom is not a private room. It is a loft area in the 8 bed dorm and simply has a shutter to pull over to separate it. You have to go up a ladder to access it and there is very little space in it.”

“Choose an upstairs room where the internet is stronger and it's a lot warmer. Downstairs has gaps under the doors and weak signal. Avoid room number 8. Box room for 9 people with three storey bunk beds.”
