Charged us a different price
by Kenetica on 06 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)
We checked in and proceed to make payment at the front desk. The reception initially quoted 282Bs for our room. However, this was not what was stated on agoda.com and we should have paid an equivalent of 40usd (about 278Bs). We handed over 302Bs and the reception promptly accepted without giving us change. We gave up arguing and stayed for one night. Felt swindled. Breakfast is terrible with only juice and a piece of bread (additional breakfast items need payment). Do not stay at this place. Ter...
Unreliable travel agency
by John C on 26 Nov 2016 (Solo Traveller)
I booked a bus trip to Copacabana with the travel agency of the hostel. It was said, they pick me up 7:30 am at my hostal. But the driver for the trip never showed up. I tried to call the numbers written on the contract but nobody answered the phone. At 10 am i finally reached somebody. The driver had been to the wrong hostal. The Agency tried to say sorry, suggested me to do other things - but really solving my travel problems, refund my hostal on isla del sol (that i can not take now) has ...
Nice courtyard, nice location, poor rooms.
by TwoAndAHalfTraveller on 02 Nov 2016 (Family Traveller)
We stayed 3 nights at Hostal Republic. There is an extremely nice courtyard where you can sit and eat breakfast etc. There is even WiFi there. Also we were very happy with the service provided in the reception. Downsides for the hostal was that our room was in quite bad shape. There were holes in the walls and it was VERY worn down. Also the restaurant was closed at the strangest times and there were several items we couldn't order from the menu as the 'cook' didn't learn how to make them yet...
No idea why this is a Lonely Planet top pick
by abigail b on 28 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)
We picked this place because of the great review it got on lonely planet but I can only assume it is out of date. The rooms are freezing cold although you are able to buy hot water bottles at reception for 30BS. The wifi is temperamental and often drops out. It is not the hotel's fault that they are building an office block next door but there was non stop banging from 8am to 6.30pm so you can't really spend any time in your room during the day. The breakfast menu looked good but they didn't act...
Good hostel, terrible breakfast!
by Anna B on 12 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)
Really nice hostel in colonial building. Rooms were large, clean & adequate. Shared bathroom was clean with best shower I have had in all 3 months travelling so far! It was hot & powerful. It is quiet even though across road from wild rover. 10 mins walk to plaza San Francisco. Biggest downside was awful breakfast of 1 bread roll & cup of tea/ coffee. Need to have a 2nd breakfast!
