"I will wholeheartedly endorse Hotel Utama to any friends or fellow travelers heading towards Copacabana"
My experience at Hotel Utama was nothing but positive. Felipe and Marta, the husband and wife proprietors, strive to make the hotel feel like a home. To that end, they provide free tea, fruit, and candies in the lobby, available all day, every day. Adding to the excellent value, there is also a nice breakfast that is included in the price of the room. The rooms themselves are clean, with private bathrooms that have showers with hot water. Finally, Felipe and Marta seemed genuinely interested in trying to provide whatever services or assistancee they could to make my stay in Copacabana as pleasant and comfortable as possible. I will wholeheartedly endorse Hotel Utama to any friends or fellow travelers heading towards Copacabana. Thank you, Felipe and Marta!
Thanks for your hospitality.

"I strongly recommend this hostel above any other to all types of traveller looking for brilliant service, friendly staff, and a relaxing atmosphere"
It was a treat to arrive in Copacabana and be welcomed by a friendly hostel with a great, home-like environment. Being greeted by free mate de coca, fresh fruit, and sweets helped me unwind after the long bus journey.
Utama (¨your house¨in Aymara), has been running for a little over a year, and consequently is not yet mentioned in many guide books. Prices are very reasonable, with rooms starting at $10 a night, including en-suite rooms with wonderful panoramic views of Lake Titicaca and the town, and a breakfast to die for. What’s more, the friendly staff are at hand to help in any way possible (including laundry!), and to answer any queries about transportation, tours on the lake, or activities around town.
I strongly recommend this hostel above any other to all types of traveller looking for brilliant service, friendly staff, and a relaxing atmosphere.
