Hostel #5

Hostel Naira
La Paz, Bolivia
220 Bolivianos (approx $32)/night

We wound up at this place on accident, after our room was so rudely given away at the hostel we reserved. A bit steep for our budget, but our bags were heavy and the hills were steep and they caught us in a moment of weakness.

Worth every penny.

This place was a perfect oasis in the shitstorm that is La Paz. Did I say that out loud? More on that later.

Anyhow... clean as can be, REAL showers (not the weird wire kind that electrocute you), CABLE television (you'd be amazed how comforting it is to watch an episode of Friends), carpet and heat (which proved to actually be more stuffy than pleasant), and WiFi IN THE ROOMS. Once we heard that, there was no longer a debate to be had.

Is it sad how much we love WiFi?

  1. Nice looking hostel! I'm glad you love WiFi so much, because it's been so much fun to follow you along your trip (would be MORE fun if I was actually ON it).

    As for Friends... heehee super comforting indeed. Just ask Wendy, who was very out of her element when we visited Cancun on our honeymoon. I think the only reason she didn't castrate and annul our marriage right then and there was because she was able to find solace in Friend's episodes in our hotel room :-)
