Hotel Utama is a decent accommodation option. The breakfast was nice. The rooms are clean however the showers were not hot at all and the rooms could do with some heating.
I thought the staff were fantastic. The breakfast provided was good. I think the only thing lacking was a good atmosphere., it felt more like a hotel then a hostel. A good option if you're staying in La Paz however if you're looking for more of a party vibe then you may want to consider another option.
Hotel Mitru is a lovely place to stay before you embark on the Salt Flats tour. The breakfast was great, perhaps the best we had in Bolivia. Also the tour company thats attached Tupiza Tours provided an incredible tour of the salt flats. The staff didn't provide the best customer service but it wasn't as if they were bad. If you're in Tupiza stay at Hotel Mitru and book with tupiza tours.
Overall i thought this was a wonderful hostel. I felt the staff were incredible and often went out of their way to ensuring we enjoyed our stay.
To be frank, this particular dwelling did nothing to endear itself to me. The rooms were not particularly clean, the staff were average as they didn't really provide a great atmosphere it actually felt like my stay was a bit of an inconvenience for them. The whole stay was a bit like a Mickey Rourke movie, you were sure that at some point it all looked good and in past years maybe even had a had more charm to it, now it's kind of washed up.
The staff were friendly and provided a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere. They did a wonderful job at maintaining the cleanliness of the rooms and the Restaurant also provided a great feed. I would be happy to recommend the Biergarten to anyone staying in Ilha Grande.
