I went for my birthday and on the Internet there was a special offer, it was not on when we got there. Everything on the Internet was not available. All the rooms although they had an amazing view were quite shabby for the price. The whole place was like it. The owner was rude and moody would not give us... More

We stayed in a big room with a balcony and a fantastic view. And a hot shower! The only criticism of our room was the floor didn't seem too clean. We stayed because we wanted into relax and use the pool area, but this shouldn't be a huge draw - the pool area is not well maintained. I wasn't confident... More

Having seen flyers everywhere offering reduced rates Sunday through Thursday and them paying the taxi we thought we would treat ourselves to a place with a pool...it was not worth it. Turned up to be told the rates (given to us the day before) didn't exist, she refused point blank to pay for the taxi and was out right rude... More

The view it has this hotel is really beautiful, the breakfast is tasty as well but the rooms are not so special neither so clean, our room had a balcon and it was a plus. If you are not so picky regarding cleaningness and can adjust yourselve to that, then it is a place to go, it is worthy for... More

I visited as part of a motorbike tour and I have to say if I had been visiting alone I doubt I would have chosen this place based on the reviews - but ..... The view is exceptional and that is a very good reason to stay. The rooms are quite spacious and comfortable and the pool is an added... More

In the moment that I arrived to the hotel, the Fat woman (that is the owner of the place), told me that I had to pay... More

The hostel is ok, I decided to stay here as its a well known place to stay in Coroico. The rooms are spacious and they have good wifi. The best thing was breakfast as you have a complete buffet from where you can choose. Maybe, I will change the sheets as they are old but overall is a good option.

The location and the views are unique in Coroico but the hotel is totally abandoned. Bbq, bars, massage room and sauna have been closed for years and not even the kitchen service is working (you have to walk 20min to the centre). The rooms have an intense smell of humidity and full of insects. The service is poor and the... More

The food was okay but there wasnt much selection. The place is very old but it was neat and clean and had that 1930's style arhcitecture... More
