Very nice location. True that it is exhausting to get all the way up, though. Beds are comfortable, owner is very nice, breakfast is good. Only one shower would work though and we were not allowed to use the bathroom in the afternoon because it just had been cleaned... All in all, a good place for the price. Try the restaurant Las Velas, not too far. Worth every penny.
The woman running the hostel was very sick and I felt very sorry for her when I was asking questions about my room. YOU CAN GET A MUCH BETTER HOSTEL on the island if you just wait and book when getting there! the breakfast (not included) was stale bread with a small juice. there was only one bathroom open (the other was completely out of commission) and there was no hot water for a shower. When I went to use the kitchen to heat hot water she wanted to charge me even though the kitchen is adverti
The staff is super nice, but it helps if you speak a little spanish. The lady owner made us a great dinner and was always cleaning everything. The shower was warm, what is great considering you are on an island with no gas. As for security, it is impossible not to feel safe in such a nice island.
We weren't to pleased with the place. Our reservation didn't come through properly and the accomodation was very average. Toilets need to flush with a bucket and showers are very spare. If you have the option shop around on the island, loads of accomodations over there!
Excellent location really close to main square and good value for double with private bathroom in Cusco. Breakfast is good, standard bread and jam, you pay a bit more for eggs and you have to go down early if you want them! Plumbing was not great, smell of sewerage in the toilet and drains in the rooms but if you can get past that it's a nice hostel. Showers were hot! Not a lot happening in the communal areas and asking to stay extra nights usually involves moving room so book ahead!
We only had one night here but had the best sleep for days, quiet, gorgeous location on a beautiful island. We were made very welcome and well looked after. Would definitely recommend this hostel. All solar power here so need to check when best time for hot shower is.

A clean & comfortable hostel,worth the climb up the Inca stairs for beautiful views over the lake. The lady in charge was very welcoming & helpful, some knowledge of Spanish makes communication easier.We had dinner in the hostel & the food was good.There are a few other restaurants around if you want to eat elsewhere. It is a small, quiet hostel in a beautiful location, definitely a good place to spend an overnight stay on the Island.
Nice bed in a quiet hostel. Nice view and clean. Not good bathroom facilities. So only one half toilet for everyone. And no shower.
You'll have to carry your backpack to this hostel and it's hard, trust me! :) The hostel is summary, with nice view. Not too cold in the night and that's important here!
A nice place to stay in Isla del Sol even if the facilities are limited, showers were out of order when we were there, but it is the same pretty much everywhere on the Island. The ladies managing the hotel were nice and helpful and we slept well.
Lovely place held by a lovely and very helpful lady who can also cook for you for a small fee. Down side: you'll have to hike pretty much all the way up (so will you for most of the hostels though) - meaning you'll have lovely view on the lake and other islands from the garden (that view is all worth staying a night or two on the island!). Big common room making it easy to meet other travellers. Conforts are basic, but so are they on the whole island.
Not going to be too hard on this hostel, It's on an island with limited water, power and hot water heating facilities. The hostel offers a relatively cheap bed, the owner is friendly and will offer you a bucket of water if you need to wash. I think the hostel gets a tough rap on hostelworld. If your going to the island for a few days it si absolutely pefect and will givew you a nice, quiet, and warm place to rest your head. The breakfast isn't amazing but does the job.
The hostel is expensive if you compare prices once you are on the island. The family that runs the place is very nice, but that does not justify such prices. No water for taking a shower, since there are no pipes on the island. The house is clean and the single room has an amazing view of the Titicaca lake and the Royal Mountains. You must consider that visiting the island is for trekking only – do not expect to find fun or bars here.
this one has to be one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in in our travelling career... free fruit, coca tea and snacks for guests. their breakfast is HEARTY and CHAMP! if you travel long enough in Peru and Bolivia to know that hot water is a rarity so what this hostel has to offer is considered luxury...
The room was really nice and the beds were warm and comfy. The owner was friendly and breaktfast was great (20BOB). The location was good and the bathrooms were clean. My one criticism would be that after we checked out we had to pay 2BOB to use the toilet (fair enough, but would have been a much better experience had I been able to use the toilet as a customer who had just left that morning, especially as when we were staying there we had helped translate into english for the owner).
