“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ended up staying for 4 nights instead of 2. Rooms was enormous, felt like the honeymoon suite. Owner nice guy, cleaned bathroom, gave us extra TP and a bowl for my oats when asked. Breakfast simple, warm bread, jam, hot drink and OJ. Ideal spot and luggage storage for free if you are off to the island.

We really enjoyed our stay!!!

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

The hostel is very quiet and sometimes the receptionist dissappeared. Wifi is a bit of a nightmare, but this is the same across Bolivia. Washing was done quickly and cheaply and the room I was given was really spacious. Cold showers but again, this is not uncommon. The best part was the lake view from the balcony, just amazing. Location was very central too.

We were there in the low season and that may be the reason for our average experience.
The hotel (it isn't a hostel), has a great view of the bay and is well located in the town. The room was clean and spacious however very pricey for the town.
The restaurant wasn't open and there only seemed to be one other guest and one staff member.
You could get something similar for a lower price a block or two off the beach.

Despite the good reviews we had read, we were very disappointed with our stay. We were very glad it was only for one night!
The worst part was probably the smell. I'm not sure if there was a problem with the drain in the bathroom or something but the smell was horrible and permeated the entire room.
We were not given towels, toilet paper or soap and had to go and ask for all of this.
The included breakfast was good but consisted of only one piece of bread each and were only begrudgingly given another each on request.
The curtains were almost completely see through so could see people walking past all night which was a bit disconcerting.
The bed was very uncomfortable with some kind of massive metal bar in various places around the mattress.
Overall would not recommend. Was a great location in terms of how close it was to the lake and restaurants/cafes but the town is quite small that I'm sure something better could be found with similarly good location!
Not very cheap either.

The rooms are big, clean and have a lake view. Breakfast was better than we are used to in Peru - I don't know how it compares to other places in Bolivia. It was also really quiet at night so you can have a good nights sleep. The wifi only worked some of the time and was very slow (we didn't find anywhere in Copacabana where it was quick). The shower is not hot, tepid would be a more accurate description, and the room was very cold when a breeze came in off of the lake but enough bedding was provided to keep you warm in bed. Overall a pretty good stay.

Room Tip: The higher floors have a lake view.

Absolutely beautiful rooms, some with lake view. Friendly owner and good breakfast. The price is excellent value. Internet was slow and did not work when clouded, but that is anyway mostly the case in Copacabana or Bolivia in general.

The rooms at this hostal are just lovely. There are no dorms, just very reasonably priced privates. Ours was amazing. It was the room to the left of the door to reception. It was massive, had a nice en-suite, sofa, table chairs even patio doors leading to a flower filled patio with views of the lake. Definately recommend!
