Reaching the top of the island after having climbed the famous Inca Stairs from the South Port (1.5 hours by boat from Copacabana), come and enjoy the mind-blowing view and the delicious food in our new hostel, entirely built under ecological aspects.
The hostel offers a number of different well-kept rooms, including dormitory, matrimonial, double and family rooms (with and without private bathroom), most of which offer a stunning panorama view over the Titicaca Lake and the Cordillera Real!
Don Martín and his family serve breakfast; lunch and dinner (try the "Trout a la Romana", fresh from the lake!) and offer you interesting trips to the Incas' nearby temple of the sun, the Island of the Moon and the island's northern part where you can find the mystic "Head of the Puma". You can also buy ferry tickets in the hostel.
HOSTELLING INTERNATIONAL BOLIVIA RECOMMENDS:
Bring only little luggage when you come to the island, the way up the Inca stairs with heavy backpacks and suitcases is pretty tiring, especially when you haven't got used to the height yet!
There are no banking facilities on the island, so make sure you bring enough money (and change!).
Don't get mislead by the 'tourist hunting' boys at the port! The boys abandon their school classes to earn commissions leading tourists to other hostels - don't support them neglecting their education!
Just walk up to the Inca stairs to the little village "Yucumani", you can't miss the hostel!
