Great place, very clean restrooms and showers. Water was hot most of the time but if solar is not up to snuff and you tell the owner she can make it hotter. Good WiFi. Electricity is problematic. You may be able to negotiate some connectivity but the infrastructure of the hotel is not equipped to handle big loads. She was kind enough to allow me to hook up and charge my batteries but then insisted I unhook after a couple of days. For the time I was connected she charged me 10 soles per day and I was happy to pay.

She brought hot tea to my friend who was suffering from altitude sickness and was very friendly and inviting. Very secure location, unfortunately only room for about 3 overland vehicles at a time. Another overlander parked beside the hotel on the road and was not charged.

Little vans run up the highway to Puno for 2 soles 50 centavos to the center of town. Just go to end of the road and put you hand out and they will stop. Taxi to the city is about 20 soles, used taxis to return as it is confusing where and which combi to catch for the return.
