Right beside the famed cathedral and a short walk to the main street, this hostel has a great location. Also from the rooftop patio you will have a stunning sunset view over the lake and the rooftop view of the tiled basilica - which is surely the reason they call this place 'florencia' The lady (boss) is extremely warm, friendly...

Very basic room, and they make you wait a very long time got breakfast (bad coffee and small portion of scrambled eggs). I guess the price is reasonable, being located in a tourist hub. Rooms can be cold as there is no heating...

A warm welcome from the very kind and friendly owner. But there is a lack of comfortable communal spaces, and can be a bit cold. The owner was able to help organise tours etc, but it just did not feel very homely. Breakfast was provided free. But if you go in the wet season you may want somewhere cosier!

We had one night here and have no complaints. Good value, nice breakfast included, central location. Shared bathroom is between quite a few rooms, we didn't have to queue so worked ok for us. Very friendly staff.

The special thing about the Florencia is the family that runs the place: All of them are polite, helpful and warm-hearted. We had nice talks with different family members and rough plays with Pepe, the family's dog. The hostel is well located in a quiet street right behind the main church. The rooms and all facilities were always clean and...

We really enjoyed our stay before and after going to Isla del Sol. It is family owned and operated and they care about their guests! Our room was on the top floor and we could see Lake Titicaca, while enjoying the warmth of the sun midday. The room was clean and had great bedding along with fresh towels and soap....

This is a great place for people who are on a budget and are not looking for super luxury. It's clean, it's quiet, it's comfortable and all the staff are really friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Even the dog pepe is friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend for a good value, comfortable stay.

Awesome location, very near to the cathedral. Views from the top floor/breakfast room were amazing. Staff very kind and so helpful. Pepe is such a lovely dog! Rooms are a bit old (could use some paint) and showers are basic/low in number and sometimes cold. After some renovations everyone is going to want to stay here!

The hostel itself was pretty good, nothing special. We stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and overall okay. We were promised a panoramic view which we didn't really get. Breakfast was the regular "bun" and marmelade but that was okay. Unfortunately, the hostel is located relatively far from the main street and we...

Stayed in this hostel for four days either side of a trip to Isla del Sol. A short walk from the cathedral and close to all areas its a great base for copacabana. Owners dont have much English but they are warm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and showers warm. Breakfast is good, bread, eggs and coffee/juice They have...
