The staff is really really rude. On arrival we made a deal with the woman behind the counter. They had no matrimonial rooms available, so we agreed to stay in a 3-bed-dorm instead,on the condition that the price would include breakfast. The next morning we went to have breakfast, but the extremely bad tempered serving guy snatched our breakfast tickets... More

We had a great stay in this hostal. Big room with a nice view on the lake. It was cheap and breakfast included! The inner courtyard was good, but I wouldn't recommend the restaurant, there are better in 'town'. Also the staff could use some (a lot of) motivation.

We tried to stop by Hostal Colonial's restaurant to have an early lunch as we needed to kill some time before our boat to Copacabana left. We went inside and were basically kicked out immediately by very unfriendly staff. One guy's answer to our question "Is this place open?" was simply "I will not serve you!". I believe him, that...

The staff was really rude. (not with me but with others) The beds are comfy enought. The hot water doesnt last long, at least we had a room with a lovely view. The prices are ok for what it is. We didnt had electricity for a while but this is normal in copacabana it happens ofthen.

I stayed at this hotel for one night after crossing the border from Peru and I'm totally disappointed! I read really good comments here. First of all they are charging horrendous prices because of the festival tomorrow (180 Bob for a double) and second of all got money "lost" in my room. I went out for dinner and when I... More

A 4 bed room is 110 Bolivianos including breakfast which is £11! Rooms are really comfortable and spacious, the bathrooms are questionable though. Plus, the hotel's restaurant is really good value for money and tasty. If you can, try to get a room on the third or fourth floor for the best views of the lake and sunsets.

The bus dropped us off right outside this hotel, and having seen it on trip advisor we decided to give it a shot. We went into reception and were quoted 120bs per double room per night, but when my boyfriend said we should go down the road to one that we knew was 100bs he soon gave us the room... More

We stayed there three nights and we have to say that it was a good surprise. Again, talking about the standards: - it was quiet despite the location (stick to the bus stop on the main city place) - room and bathroom clean enough - professionnal staff. example: they came to see us to change us from room because of...

Upon reading prior negative reviews I feel compelled to write my experience. After 6 months of hostels in Central and South America I found this place, in particular its location and value for money, up there with the best. I will review by responding to past criticism: -noise: I didn't notice any unwanted noise but if you choose to stay... More

I don't always drink in my hotelroom, but when I do, it needs a splendid view on the lake like in this hotel! First of all, the hotel is surprisingly cheap and breakfast is included! The inner courtyard is beautiful and every room counts with a TV. There is lots of mould in the shower and the staff is incredibly... More
