Was a fine place to stay, although a bit out of the way (granted the entire town is not very big). This hostel is on the train station side of the town, a few streets back behind the market. Otherwise the rooms were clean and comfortable.
After my arrival I had to wait, only to be then told that I would be staying at "Inka House" next door. They were probably over-booked... Still had to pay for the price of the room at Sol de Oro, even though I believe that facilities at Inka House were much poorer. I wouldn't recommend the place, but this is my personal opinion.
Very poor service, I don't recommend this hotel purely by the service on numerous occasions. If this is improved it could be a great hotel.
Very noisy room and night, most of it because of the people working at the hotel. Shame when you need to get up at 4h30 in the morning for the climb. It seemed to have been managed by a 12 years old, very nice but still, not a professional staff at all. It could be much better with better management.
You don't need anything more to stay 2 nights in Aguas Caliente
We only stayed there for a night, but it is very close to the train station. Staff was friendly and helpful and it was clean. Only downside was that there was no hot water.
extremely unfriendly staff; reserved room not available. staff ripped us off when offering alternative accommodation.

Got to the hostel to be told that they were full and that we would be taken to another property even though we had a reservation - they had a full draw of room keys so this didn't seem to be the case. We were taken to Inka House and after changing rooms 3 times it was ok. No wifi in rooms and breakfast wasn't what we had paid for. It was only us and another couple in the whole of the property but by that night it was full of people who had all booked into the Sol De Oro. Seems like a scam!!
I made my reservation well in advance..when I arrived there were no rooms available .She got me a room at a neighboring hotel..which was not nice at all.This happened for 2 nights and on the third night I got a room at the hostel I booked.

This hostel has a very nice breakfast room with a nice view of Lake Titicaca.
