It is a nice quiet hostel with a spectacular view from its rooms. There are no meals included, but they offer all meals for service (and the food is really fine). Staff is very friendly. Definitely a good adress for your stay at isla del sol.
I suggest they could fix the toilet. Staff was really nice and helpful...
Generally clean and homey. But blanket not sufficiently warm, and shower was not warm enough for comfort. Location is good for the trails, but climbing all the way up with a full backpack at altitude upon arrival can be quite a task.
We were given a different room to the one we had booked, there was only one freezing cold shower with an hour queue most days, had to padlock our own door, the curfew wasn't clearly communicated, none of the toilets flushed properly... I know the island has scarce water resources and that's to be expected, but nothing was very clearly signed or communicated and the lady in charge was constantly scolding us! There are definitely nicer places to stay on the island.

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!
Great view and nice staff (though only speak spanish). Facilities are a bit basic- like no flushing toilet except with a bucket- but I guess this is normal for the island and easy enough to get used to. Very close to all the restaurants nearby and close to the south dock fr getting the boat in the morning. Also very cheap- I was expecting hostyels on the isalnd to be more expensive.
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.
