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.
The Adventure Brew
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.
View from skybar with microbrewed beer
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.
