Something not right?

Description

After an extensive search we found that this is the only place in La Paz that supports Overlanders (no bigger than 21 feet) and not just a parking lot. They charge 400 pesos per vehicle for overnight (US25), for two people (they have an extra fee per person) and offer a safe place for parking with closed gate, HOT showers, water, excellent wifi in common areas (Starlink), barbecue area, a fully equipped kitchen and a big palapa area with tables and two hammocks. The entrance gate is not covered but there are a few crossings cables, so if you are until 3.5 meters high you are good to get in. Besides of all this the location is a walking distance from the Malecon, restaurants, and big supermarket (Chedraui). Worth the stay and we could explore La Paz walking and leave our camper in a safe place. They also have rooms for rent!!

First come first serve system, no reservations.

It's a small courtyard with big shared kitchen and living area. Clean bathrooms, good WiFi. Lot of travelers, so good place to get tips or share experience. Nice atmosphere, quiet at night. No problems with dogs during our stay. 400MXN/2ppn.

There is no grumpy dog living here as the previous people said. There was one from another camper. I have stayed here two times for about 10 days each time. I was here at the same time as the previous poster. Are they sure it was the Peace Center? The Peace hostel has dogs.

My dog was happy here. Most people are responsible about their dogs. The dogs actually get along well, most of the time. Across the street is a park to walk your dog.

I stayed in my rv. I love the friendliness of the place. It’s an easy bike ride all over town, with an excellent bakery a few blocks away (Amelier 21), Chedraui supermarket, and the malecon, all in walking distance.

Pavel, Anna plus Paulina, are excellent hosts and make everyone feel welcome. They try to get people in. It’s best to get here earlier.

Showers are clean and hot. It’s a technique. Turn on the hot water, hear the two clicks and the water heater turns on, then turn on the cold water. Wait, then there is hot water.

There is a large communal room and kitchen. We watched the superbowl and had a pizza party.

Our rig was in the shop so we stayed here as it was one of the only places we could find that was dog friendly. The only available option was private room with shower for 1000 pesos plus 50 pesos for our dog. The room was very small and dingy plus we couldn’t really let our dog out since there was an older dog that lives there that they described as “grumpy” and we didn’t want our pup to get into another fight. It rained and there was a leak that soaked my husbands pillow so not the best sleep for him. They didn’t bother us about checking out an hour late after we got our rig in the morning and wanted to do some dishes etc. which was maybe the only redeeming factor. This probably wouldn’t be a bad place to stay if you were just parking and using facilities but I would not recommend getting a room here, though everyone working here was very nice.

We’re so happy we found this place! Parking spaces for just 5 cars or small vans with no hookups. It’s got the best kind of youth hostel vibe - bright and friendly shared spaces, super clean bathrooms. It’s a 15 minute walk to town and we feel safe doing it.

Peace Center is not closed, I was there yesterday. They may close for periods of time in the off season (as is typical here), but they are most certainly open for business and ready for folks to stay. Great campground and hosts!

Pavel and Ann were wonderful hosts who welcomed us with open arms! They had excellent recommendations for beaches and eateries in La Paz. The Peace Centre had a great communal palapa with kitchen and hammocks we relaxed in. Nice toilets and showers and we used their washing machine for 50 pesos. Would definitely recommend!!

Beautiful here, good starting point for La Paz... and a very nice host couple. Everything corresponds, the infrastructure is just great for an overlander. everything clean and functional. I can neither understand nor share the emotions of LaloDsWazer. I would come back here anytime - and I am now extending for another night. Thanks

Great spot to stop in La Paz. Friendly hosts and other travellers makes the place feel very safe. Hot showers! 350 for the van with 2 people.

Report Check-In

To us this is the best place to stay in La Paz. Ana and Pavo are awesome hosts and are very accommodating. it's not a big place so anything larger than a Sprinter van should not try. They can comfortable host up to around 6 vehicles at a time but if you show up late and they are full, they will help squeeze you in for the night. Just know that you might be blocking others in or be blocked in yourself. that's not a negative in my eyes. they do it to help people who don't have a place to be for the night. One day you might find yourself in that situation and you will be thankful that hosts like Ana and Pavo are accommodating and not turn you away. This is our go-to place from now on everytime we are in La Paz. Communal kitchen, big palapa with tables and hammocks to meet and chat with other travelers.

Great vibe, on walking distance from downtown La Paz and very friendly staff/owners. They offer small but fine RV sites and a great shared living area and kitchen. Hot showers, laundry room and good wifi available. We stayed here for five nights and made great new friends.

Sent a message via WhatsApp to confirm space for the next day. Was told no problem. Arrived and got told there was no space available. Another camper parked out on the street to use their washing facilities whilst I think they also wait. Gave up trying to stay here and found somewhere else.

Great little haven to the right of downtown. We intended on staying one day but ended up staying two! Inside very tall brick walls, this place feels so safe and relaxing. Parking is TIGHT though they will do their best to accommodate you. We were 10m and fit in on the side. It’s way better for van parking and truck and top camper. There’s parking outside on the street they encourage you and state it’s safe in the neighborhood. So nice to have showers, hammocks and a calm serene space to relax. They’ll give great advice on anything you need. We are coming back here after our loop around the end of Baja since you can’t get better than this cute spot so close to town and amazing hosts.

Our camper had broken down so we stayed here for 16 of the 20 days it took to get it repaired. Anna and Pavel are great hosts. The enclosed area has several airbnb rooms and space for some 8 campers. There is a large communaal area where you can meet each other for breakfast, lunch or diner. Great place to meet likeminded overlanders. We felt at home! Thanks

Sweet place. We almost always just look for free spots and camp outside of cities while tripping in for the daytime. We made an exception for 2 days in La Paz and we are so glad we did. Check-in starts at 1pm and check-out at 12. Very relaxed and seems to be on a first-come first-served basis, as is the way in Baja. You are parked side by side with other vans and trucks but that's totally cool and it's part of the vibe. Campground meets hostel. They have rooms for rent too which look really nice, and the showers are decent.
From the outside it's not obvious at all, we just rocked up and poked our heads through the door. It's very secure for a place right in downtown La Paz. Great tacos nearby and you can walk right downtown where you can swim at the beach, shop, eat, get drinks, etc. We also got a chance to meet other travelers, which we have not done much so far in Baja. Overall great experience, glad we stayed here for two nights and well worth the 300 pesos per night.

Spent 2 nights at the Peace Centre. Here’s what we can offer based on our experience:

Pros:
- Central to downtown and the malecon
- Hot showers/flush toilets/laundry
- Other interesting travellers to connect with
- Nice communal kitchen and palapa
- Very fast wifi
- Generally good vibes

Cons:
- A bit difficult to find - look for the word “Rangel” on the gate
- Very small, enclosed parking lot - no breeze and can get baking hot in the middle of the day (only 1 of 4 parking spots has some afternoon shade)
- Dogs are not permitted in the communal palapa area… wouldn’t be so bad except that as previously mentioned, there’s not much shade anywhere else and it can get really hot in the afternoon - was not good for us or our furry mutt
- Miscommunications - there seems to be 2 different individuals in charge. Us and others were getting conflicting information as a result. We weren’t told until the second day at the Peace Centre that dogs weren’t allowed in the communal palapa area (after already having spent a few hours there). That would have been good to know upon arrival. We ended up leaving a day earlier than planned as a result. Another couple was told they would get the next available parking space, only to be denied the following day because it had also been promised it to a different person. Resulted in a not so peaceful moment.

Overall we liked and would recommend this place but if you have a dog, it’s important to know there are limitations. Maranatha campground just outside of town is a better place for dogs (more shade, breeze and walking areas) if being close to downtown isn’t important to you.

Chill site to scrub up and do some laundry. No dryer, tho. All as described. An on-site kiddo lives here, so….she’s a playmate for the kindergarten crowd. Shower is legit hot thanks to fossil fuels vs just “normal temperature” that you’d find from a straight solar tank. Perfect to keep you FRESH.

Great stop. The building/lot is gated and unmarked. I stuck my face in a small hole in the fence and asked someone to open the gate. Very tight squeeze with lots of vehicles. 300 pesos a night, 50 pesos for laundry. Hot showers and bathrooms. Peaceful venue, made several friends around the barbecue. Great wifi. Friendly family that runs it (they are new to ownership, looking to expand in the future)

Yes! everything everyone has said. I wasn't sure about this place at first because the Vans are so packed in, but it was incredibly peaceful. A lovely community feel. We borrowed two of the bikes and cruised the Malecon for dinner. We'd definitely stay here again.

This place looked cute but they only have space for like 4 vans and they were all taken when we pulled up. Next time!

Just an update for the fellow travelers. We just got back to this place for a few days and they adjusted the value for overnight to 300 pesos, the reason why is they just installed a hot shower. It was convenient because it’s getting chill during the nights, other than that all amenities described below still included in the price.

Such a great energy here, Raul is super helpful and friendly. A cozy safe, secure place to camp, hang out with other fellow travelers. Room for 6 or 7 vans squeezed in. A few blocks from the malecon, a nice long walk or easy bike ride away. The neighbor has a little waterfall that you can hear, the only sound I heard at night, peaceful. Clean hot showers and bathrooms, kitchen open to use, nice gathering dining area. Loved it here, will be back.

We really enjoyed this spot. Stayed 2 nights and we’ll be back again before we leave La Paz. Close to everything downtown and a wonderful experience with other overlanders. Purified water available 2 doors down, and they have a few loaner bikes so you can ride the bike path that runs on the street and takes you all the way up and down the Malecón. Paved and Anna, along with Raul were pleasant hosts. Clean facilities with lots of toilet paper. Well maintained throughout. $200 pesos a night was well worth it.

Nothing to add to the two previous comments. Great place run by Zarza. It’s safe and convenient. Leave you rig there, and walk to town!

Place is limited to approximately 5 or maybe 6 rigs. Nothing bigger than an US full size camper could fit. So don’t drive your unimog or expedition truck there.

We met some interesting characters while staying there. A writer, an old American singer than was trained by Sinatra, etc…

We spent 3 nights at Peace Center and enjoyed the proximity to the city, felt safe, and appreciated the wonderful host Zarza. We paid 200 pesos per night and it included hot showers, nice common kitchen and lounge area and WIFI. It was a small space to park our truck with camper on back near other overlanders, but we'd definitely stay again.

After a lot of research, we found Peace Center within walking distance of the Malecon with all its shops, bars, and restaurants right on the water. They have both Air BnB rooms and RV spaces inside a secure gated compound. For 200 pesos ($10) per night, you get your camping spot, showers, flush toilets, water, electricity, excellent WiFi, fully equipped kitchen area, fire pit, barbecue area, TV area, tables and chairs in a covered palapa. You won’t find a more secure RV park in a such a great location and the hosts are super nice people. This place is a hidden gem!

Peace Hostel is probably the best place to crash in La Paz. They have dorms for a very good price and private rooms.
The rooms are super clean, the beds are new, and provided me a really good sleep (... needed!). Plus, the whole place is really beautiful. The open lounge is a great place for having food, rest or socialize around few beers (they provide fresh beers as well).
The crew was super friendly and really easy going, making sure everything is allright.
It's also possible to park vehicule inside, so it's very safe.
Either to have a quiet time and rest, or meet travelers and hang out, this is the best hostel in town.
