Hospedaje Milenio is a colorful, cozy, little place to lay your head. The staff are friendly and it is in a good location. They have hot showers, TV, Wi-Fi, and dorms with a small number of beds.
Located just six blocks away from Plaza Mayor and Centro Comercial Lanza, Hospedaje Milenio is close enough to the main tourist area of La Paz, but far enough away to escape the craziness of the big city. Although the wooden sign is not lit at night, the hostel is still rather easy to find on Calle Yanacocha, just north of Calle Sucre. The main bus terminal is a fifteen-minute walk away.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms and bathrooms are pretty standard. The pastel colors give the rooms a cozy feeling, and there are plenty of blankets on the bed for the cold La Paz nights. There are two bathrooms. They are kind of small, but each one has a toilet and electric shower that is supposed to provide hot water twenty-four hours of the day, but that is not always the case. Since there are no shower curtains, the floor can get wet after taking a shower. This also means the the floors can get muddy from people walking around with their shoes on, so make sure to wear sandals when showering.
Inside, the hostel looks like someone's home. There are two common areas; the one on the first level has a few couches and a TV, while the one upstairs has two tables that are perfect for eating breakfast or using their Wi-Fi. The yellow walls make the common areas seem bright during the day and there are plenty of fliers on the walls if you are in need of ideas of what to do while in La Paz. Reception can also help you organize tours. Common areas can be cold at times, despite a space heater in the corner. The hostel also has a decently priced laundry service, as well as a book exchange with a selection of books in a variety of languages.
This is not a party hostel and the atmosphere is relaxed. Breakfast can be purchased for a small fee. Although it is not the fanciest hostel in La Paz, Hospedaje Milenio is a nice place if you're looking for a cheap place to stay.
