Looking a good Hotel/Hostel in La paz

HI Travelers!
I will go to SA very soon and I will visit Bolivia and Peru, so I would apreciate if you guys can advice me about hotels or hostels in La paz. Also I will go Uyuni, Do you have any advice for that: bus traspostation, how long takes to get there?, Do i need i travel agency for that or I can do it by my own. After Bolivia I am planing to go to Peru and visit Cusco but I am thinking stop in Puno for the lake titicaca, Is it good Idea?

Thank you so much for helping me ,I will be very happy with any asnwer!

There are two recent trip reports with good info on Bolivia.

If you scroll down the page you will see the trip reports with a little orange book symbol.

Hi there!
Don´t know what your budget looks like but... I would like you to know this: there are few places in la paz that you shoul stay away from, two of my friends stayed in la paz for over two weeks and experimented very bad experiences with some "advertised " hostels like: adventure brew, wildrover, loki and hostelpoints, this places are not only noisy but on regular basis promote activities such "wild" beer parties or such , with "nice" scenes such as bloody fights, girls abuse and more! The way bolivian authorities work is just a mock to lodging laws and this people take huge advantage of it! so if you want a rather safe/pleasant stay look for any other descent place such as the nice "Hotel Morimbi" 200 mts away san francisco Church (Right in downtown) or the casique at its front, 10U$ per person, hot water, private bath, cable TV , breakfast and more, or head for the nice Passport Hotel or Even "Latino" right on the street above the main bus terminal, any of these would be far better than any unsafe or noisy place.
be careful when choosing your staying places!
About uyuni I may have some good options but first tell me if u find this suggestions useful..

About lake Titikaka, personally I believe by own experience that the bolivian side of the lake is much nicer to see (Sun , Moon Islands) less expensive and touristic than any of peru islands.
good luck
