The ladies running the hostel had a very rough record of our booking and no idea how much we had left to pay. We later found out that other guests were paying half of what we were. No running water. View was great despite the walk up the hill.

Very basic hostel, and does not really match up with the description on hostel bookers website. The rooms are clean, but old, and there were no electric sockets. The showers were out of order (and looked as if they had been for a while). They had no record of my booking so fortunately there was some space (this is probably the patchy internet on the island tho). A very big climb up the stairs!


When booking I was told that breakfast would be included however upon checking out the owner was adamant that that was and never has been an option. As there is no internet or wifi in the hostel I couldn't show her where it stated that breakfast was included in our room. There is really no need to book a hostel in advance on Isla del sol, as there are at least 15 hostels and all offer the same services but some at much cheaper prices.

I had reserved a bed in a dorm via hostelworld and they did not have one for me when I got there. The woman working there had her niece take me up the road to her sister's house. It was an unmarked house, and there was nowhere to socialize with other people- it was a bit odd. What bothered me is that it wasn't what I had reserved and I think they were charging other people less than me to stay there.


very nice lady owner.


It's a bit of a climb up the island to get to the hostel but the views are amazing.

It's is very difficult to rate this hostel. The facilties aren't very good, toilet tank isn't working, you have to fill small orange bucket with water to sort the business out. There is no keys so you can't lock the door, whether in or out. The direction given are rather misleading, it is not 5 minutes walk from the port, but 40. No Internet. When asked for a hot water to fill my coffee thermos I was refused. However it is the most beautiful place and the view from the window is breathtaking.


no english. if u have some luggage, get another hostel. and they do not give dicount for HI membership.

The hostel is located on top of the hill, is a fair walk / climbing up the stair to reach but it offers a stunning view across Lago Titikaka. The receptionist couldn't speak English however we manage to communicate by basic words and hand gesture. Unfortunately, there wasn't hot water shower ( or maybe there was but wasn't heated up property) This was a killer in the winter. There are quite a numbers of hostel around, this might not be the best or most comfortable one I am afraid.


Really nice building and garden, the landlady is lovely, very nice. If you don't mind not having wifi it's fine. Really nice hot showers was great. No lock on the door to the bedroom but it felt safe enough. I would stay again.


It is a walk up hill! But almost all the hostels on the south side are. Really simple room, no heating, cold at night. Bathroom simple. Probably most hostels up there are about the same.


R Old lady at the desk kept pushing meals and sales item from the hostel, was counting the shower time and youre not allowed to flush the toilet properly in order to save water ( All this combined to the price in dollars and receiving a random boliviano ex-rate plus wrong change. Also cheaper places on the island. Place was clean, room ok, location fine like all the others. We expect using the kitchen etc. Would create even more problems. All in all horrible service, not recommendable.


The shower isn´t so hot. The staff wasn´t so friendly. The price of our stay was US$ 22,88 for a private room with shower. We gave US$ 20 plus 3 x US$ 1. They didn´t want to accept saying that US$ 1 worth less. We said that US$ 1 is US$ 1 anywhere and finally they accept.
