We stayed here twice. It was very cold but the owner is really lovely and they provided hot water bottles at night. We found them a little pushy about their floating Island tours but there didn't seem to be any hard feelings once it was clear we weren't interested. Erratic hot water in the showers. Owner arranged a taxi for... More

Our party of six booked three rooms in this centrally located budget hotel. The rooms were small and basic, but they were clean, and the sheets and towels were clean and fresh! And it was located centrally. The rooms were freezing cold. Hot water was available in the shower only after waiting for about 10 minutes, and if you don't... More

Cold. Very very cold. That was our big con, there probably was no insulation and the blankets were thin. We wore many many layers. But it's Puno, so that's expected. They did provide a hot water bladder to stick under the blanket, but we probably should have paid the little extra and gotten a heater. We were traveling on a... More

I found this hostel by tripadvisor. I needed a place to sleepover, take a shower, store my things while traveling to Bolivian side of Titicaca. It fulfilled all goals. Young people at the reception are actually very helpful and friendly, but you need to make sure they understood your problem (and better speak in Spanish). The place is in the... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night with two friends (triple room). We got to Puno very early in the morning after taking a night bus from Cusco but managed to get some rest in an empty room before settling in to our actual room. It was a good size but not too many outlets. The bathroom was clean and... More

Very decent hotel in Puno, staff was helpful, good room and breakfast. Good value for money in Puno. A little far from the main bus station but not an issue in taxi. Supermarket very close, Main town center and travel agencies at walking distance also.

The location is good, just a five minute walk to the main tourist street and restaurants. In the evening ladies sell bread outside the hostel. The port is not far away and trips to the island can be arranged for 25 soles per person. 24 hour hot water, excellent wifi, comfy bed and larger than average room. The breakfast was... More

We arrived very early in the morning and they gave us temporarily a room just to rest from the bus trip from Cusco. Our room was not free yet and we booked a tour to the Uros Islands (a must see!!! but do not take the full day trip to the other island, it is a very long boat ride... More

With all the bad reviews we were expecting a dump! But we were pleasantly surprised. I guess that there are more tourists in this part of South America so the expectations are higher. The rooms are clean, nice enough, decorated like your grannies house and we had hot water for almost every shower. We stayed here three times... 2 nights... More
