The only thing we had a problem with was the 10 pm curfew that we did not know about until 1 am the first night. Wonderful staff, EXCELLENT breakfast and very comfortable.
utama was horrible. My friend and I tried to leave and go.get some drinks and at 10:00pm they locked everyone in their rooms and turned off wifi. This place is a prison. Do not stay here. We asked to leave and they said go to bed at 10:00!!!! All of our rights were taken away here. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Excellent hotel and we suggest anyone who wants a good place should stay there. Very good buffett breakfest.
The only thing good in this Hostel is the breakfast (best hour of the day)!!
Wifi was really really bad and there wasn't really any hot water (the water is heated like in a lot of places in South America by an electric heater. I guess this one just wasn't working too well).
The internet does not work (like the rest of Bolivia), the rooms are not very sound proof and most of the staff speak little english (again, as is standard in Bolivia). But the hotel is really nice, the rooms very comfortable and clean and it is an easy 5 min walk to the main street in Copacobana. The breakfast was probably the best we had in the whole of South America, so good!!! Great value for money.
The hostel was very cold, I was always under my blanket when in my room. They did provide private rooms for me and my friend as they had initially given a double when we requested a twin. Breakfast was good but location up a few dark roads, not good if you want a view of the lake.
We enjoyed Copacabana so much that we even extended and came back after our visit to Isla del Sol. The rooms where great, good bed, warm showers. Evenings where cold but the very helpfull staff gave us a heater, thanks!! Free fruit, water, mate tea and candy in the common area, splendid! Good advice about buses, trips in the area and tickets. Very quite, good sleep, free luggage store, recommended!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great (cereal, yogurt, coffee, pancake, egg, ham, cheese, bread, jam)! Free coca tea, bananas and mandarins in lobby. Close to main drag but not on it. Some rooms probably had great views (not ours).
Nice clean room, great breakfast, good location
Really good service and comfy rooms. Only not so good thing is the is that the front door locks at 11 and there is no key to get in or out! Breakfast is very gd as well as free fruit alll day.
Definitely would recommend, but be careful of being overcharged for stay (didn't take off deposit paid) and laundry. But staff very helpful and great to have a big private en suite room! Isla del Sol trip good. If booking buses through them, ask them to confirm availability there and then.
Best breakfast ever!!! Can really recommend the hostal. It was so nice. Staff is friendly,the hostal is clean and for Bolivia the have such a good breakfast...
The staff was incredible. A little terrace on the roof for happy hour. Incredible view. Picked us up at the bus stop. Didn't expect that. Free storage of luggage as we went to Isle de Sol. The BEST breakfast in 2 months...hands down. Pancakes, eggs, bread, juice, coffee, etc.
This is a Hotel but with a twist. They lock it up at approx 10pm, and all power goes out.. eg, no wifi. Location is up a hill. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Staff tried to rip us off, so check your booking and how much you still need to pay. They did´t appologise, they just try. The private rooms are realy nice and facilities are good. Wifi not that good!
Hotel is nice - love the free pick up and drop off service from the bus stop. Staff are friendly. WIFI was terrible in the rooms and even in the main lobby where signals are strong - internet was terribly slow, slowest I have encountered! Hot water was non existent I had to have a luke warm shower - not very happy about that. Room was clean - we were on level 1 - I would suggest asking for level 2 room. Breakfast was very impressive! So much food!
Best breakfast we have eaten in 3 months, wonderful rooms
great breakfasts good location couple of mins up the hill so quiet would stay again
