Lovely host who worked very hard. Bright, fun and lively decoration. Rooms were clean. Although not incredibly well sound-proofed. Hot showers with decent power. Towels provided. Wifi available but slow. Breakfast included - basic but nice, including freshly squeezed orange juice. Big communal kitchen/dining room that was well used. Location good - about 7 minutes walk to the Bolivian border...

This place is a way out of the town. The town isn't great but it was an essential border crossing stop over. The receptionist was friendly enough but spoke no English. The room was ok but the bathrooms were pretty awful and across the outside patio area from the room. Not nice at night! The room was very loud from...

We stayed for one night in a two bed private room with shared bathroom prior to crossing the border into Bolivia. The hostel was perfect for our purposes. It was very clean and the staff were very attentive. It is very good value for money. We recommend staying on the Argentinian side of the border if you need to overnight.

We only stayed one night,on our way to Bolivia and it was a great choice! We arrived at night without a reservation and they were very prompt on checking us in and quiet not to disturb other guests! You get towels on checkin (more like an hotel) and the hostel is pretty big, nice and clean! Breakfast is included,we were...

Copacabana probably ranks among the top 5 most beautiful hostels I've had the opportunity to visit. It's owner, Marcelo is absolutely adorable and very helpful. If needed, he will provide you tickets for the train that leads to Tupiza, Uyuni or Oruro at 3pm the next day. Perfectly clean, fairly priced, it is the perfect stay on your way to Bolivia.

We booked one night at Hostal Copacabana before heading into Bolivia and it was a really good little hostel that was perfectly adequate from what an individual or couple would need. The rooms were small, but comfortable and clean, the shared bathrooms were a little dated, but very clean and the showers were powerful with hot water. The breakfast was...

While the facade is under repair, the hostal Copacabana is a great place to stay in La Quiaca. A simple breakfast is included, but the vibe of the hostel and value of a two bed private room with tv and good internet for 70 pesos was awesome!

This hostel was a little way out of town but was comfortable, clean and friendly. The courtyard was painted reds and oranges, making it feel like we were visiting Mexico. It was very cold when we visited La Quiaca but the room had plenty of blankets so we weren't cold. Breakfast was basic but we can't complain when it was...

Most travelers are passing through La Quiaca, so there is a high turnover, and it's unlikely that you will be wanting to stay for long. Despite this, the staff we met were very friendly, the kitchen was warm and welcoming, and made plenty of cooking items available for use. The hostel was quiet, with good self-contained rooms, a pleasant communal...
