Yes this Hostal is extremely cheap, so you get what you pay for, but $40B pp was still to much to pay. It's like they are still living on their good Lonely Planet review was years gone past, and have not bothered to upgrade. The beds are very average, some of the worst I have slept on ever. The shared...

We stayed with 5 people in a dorm room and in this case, you definitely get what you pay for. The beds were about 10 cm apart, so make sure you know/like the people you're sharing a room with! The beds were uncomfortable and the toilet was far away so going in the middle of the night was a pain....

Is this place "excellent"? Well of course not. But for a double room for less than 10 Dollars it's a great deal and you get everything you need as a budget traveller. Plus, the family who runs the place is lovely, attentive and helpful, which isn't something to be taken for granted in copacabana.

I did not ever plan to stay a night in Copacabana, but due to a roadblock my plans to go to Puno had to change. I stayed the night at Hostal 6 de Agosto for 40 BOB/night - shared room with friends, private bathroom. I'd say it was a little pricey (for Bolivia) for such basic accommodations, but Copacabana is...

My boyfriend and i stayed there for three nights. After that we wanted to visit Isla del Sol and so put our backpacks in their storage. We also paid for that. After one night we came back and found our bags opened and all the money was missing. We confronted the hostelowner with that but he just said many people...

The title says it all in my opinion. The room was pretty nice and comfortable (and private shower with warm water!) but the bed was just terrible. We kept waking up because our backs were hurting.. For 1 night it is ok, but I would not have stayed for a 2nd night... breakfast also not included, but copacabana is full...

Super cheap Hostal that's good for one night. Do not expect hot water. No kitchen, WiFi is on at certain times. Good and close by to the port so it is easy access to Isla Del Sol. No english reception.

Only 30 bolivianos for a single room with bed, outlet, table, nightstand. Bathroom and shower situation not ideal but if staying only one night I wouldn't sweat it. Very central location with reliable wifi. Signage was posted with certain wifi available hours (most of the day, ends 9 pm though) but they did not seem to shut it off as...

For 30 bolivianos a night (1 bed in a 4 bed room) this place was very cheap. The good: once the wifi got going it worked quickly and well (hard to find in Copa!), central location, warm bedding, reasonably clean. The bad: very uncomfortable beds in room 206, dodgy looking wiring in shower, the boys at the front desk need...
