A free beer every night? In your hostel? That might be a common thing in Hanoi, with it’s Bia Hoi – fresh beer. But you can get fresh beer and the same bitter-sweet deal in the heart of South America: in the Adventure Brew Hostel in La Paz, Bolivia.
But you don’t have to be a beer fan to enjoy your stay in one of La Paz’s backpacker institutions, although it definitely helps. The Adventure Brew Hostel is a social place to stay, with 140 beds, a common TV, DVD and Internet areas, a ping pong table, a pool table and not to forget, both a skybar and an underground bar, serving their own micro-brewed Saya beer.
And if you don’t find old or new friends at those places, you can try the common breakfast area with all-you-can-eat pancakes or you can always just book a tour of the Death Road through the in-house tour agency.
If you’re already traveling with a companion, that’s great, too. They have a whole separate building for people who are not so fond of dorm-style accommodation. There you can get your own private double or triple room with your own private bathroom.
The hostel is located right next to the bus station and a 10 minute walk from La Paz’s main square and tourist area. The view from the skybar or rooftop terrace is very nice, especially at night. The location is unbeatable for catching a bus, but it’s still central enough for walking everywhere. La Paz is a very lively city and there’s always something going on near the main square.
Every dorm bed comes with it’s own light, a power plug and a safety locker. The wifi is fast and reliable, in the bar, in your room, as well as on the rooftop terrace. There’s hot water all day long.
