This hsotel is extremly cheap (30 bolivianos for a single room) and has a great view on the city from the rooftop. Its not deeply new and clean but the location is good and for this price you cannot have better.

The hostel is a bit far off the main tourist strip but Copacabana is small so it's just a 10min walk away from everything. We had a double room with private bathroom. The room was basic but the bed was comfortable and we had hot water. Wifi works slowly and not all the time but that's the norm in Copacabana....

Basic and cheap place to stay in Copacabana. There is not warm water and the kitchen has not enought tools to cook successfully. The owner is an old woman not very friendly and not very easy to understand. Wi-fi works relatively well.

We stayed at this hostel on the 21st of July 2015, as an Outlook Expeditions group of 16 people (13 students and 3 teachers). The staff were very helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. The hostel itself was a little bit of a walk from the main street but this meant it was a lot quieter at night. The rooms...

I've been here just a couple of days. The place is simple, bedrooms are small, airy and clean, and the bathroom was minuscule, but hot water was there. Staff isn't polite. I had the feeling they really didn't care about who are the guests, what makes me think about the security here. When I arrived, a french couple had a...

A cheap price and everything is perfectly fine for what you pay! Quiet hostal, very clean rooms and beds and staff happy to help and assist. It's a perfectly fine hostal and comes at great value. Would stay again.

Nice and clean hostal for only 20 BOB/night (2€). Really good in its price-range thus. It's a bit out of the center, but still only a 5-10 min walk. The owner is the quitest old lady ever seen ! Only for her, you'll stay longer here :) (I left my pyama's in the hostal when I left, and when I...

Stayed here for a night and it was fine. A bit more of a walk than most places, but definitely walkable. Walk felt pretty safe at night. People who worked there were just fine. Friendly enough. Not great service but adequate. Room was clean. Bathroom was tiny (shower essentially above the toilet). Didn't use the shower since it was electric...

I was surprised to read so many negative reviews after staying a night in this place. It's as cheap as you can get in Copacabana and must surely be better than some of the ramshackle excuses for accomodation along the main strip. The family here were all incredibly friendly. They didn't speak English but why should they? We left our...
