A sweet reward for the sweaty walk up, Hostal Puerta del Sol offers unmatched views of both sides of the lake from its tiptop position (just to the left) after the seemingly never-ending staircase. The hostel itself is nothing spectacular, but that vista, combined with cheap rooms (bargainable too!), warm blankets, balcony, fire pit and wooden lounge chairs, make the hike vale la pena. It's unlikely to be full--most travelers will stop further down--so expect to enjoy a tranquil spot with laid-back staff and great access to walks around the island.
