    A beautiful building surrounded by heavily soiled and abandonment. However everything is minimized by the friendliness and brotherhood of the paraguaypos.

Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.
