Absolutely loved this place, what a contrast to La Paz. Arrived early off the overnight bus, when we arrived we were greeted by member of staff, check in is not till 1pm, but he allowed us to have our room as one was available which was very nice, meant no hanging around. Our room was bright and very clean, and...

I stayed for 2 nights in the dorm and the owner was nice enough to let me in early after I arrived on an early bus from La Paz (though there is a big sign saying if you want to arrive early you should book the night before - which I did not know about before arriving). The wifi was...

I think this was one of our favourite hostels in South America! We stayed an extra 2 days because we liked it so much. First of all; THE SHOWER! It was amazing, so hot and powerful! The best we had in South America by far and probably better than my shower at home... The staff were always really helpful, we...

Stayed at this hostel based on trip advisor reviews. Rather disappointing- grounds are nice but too expensive for what is provided & breakfast less than average. Bit of walk to main centre also where there are actually better hostels. Staff not as friendly as per previous reviews - maybe the good reviews have gone to their heads?

I'm surprised your comment, I thought you felt good about being here so we could talk. I do not agree with what you say, we have one of the best Dorms Sucre, if for you 11 dollars including breakfast is expensive, you could have looked better place for your pocket, where the difference would be 3 dollars less and breakfast...

It's a lovely place in the lovely Sucre. We loved the design of the hotel and the garden to meet some people. Staff is nice and helpful and they are cleaning the rooms and terraces all the time. Plus, it's close to the main plaza of the city

I barely ever leave reviews for places that I've only stayed in for one night as I don't feel I can get a fair feel of them but I have to say that this is one of the loveliest hostels I've ever been to. The wonderful lady who greeted us on arrival was friendly and knowledgeable and happy to put...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and had a really good experience. Everything was clean, the staff nice, good breakfast and the cutest dog. Someone has thought about every detail and there's beautiful artwork everywhere. In the courtyard there's an outdoor kitchen nice for cooling by yourself! The only thing not perfect is the internet. We had...

This place is a total gem! In the historic centre of beautiful Sucre, tucked down a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle but still only ten minutes' walk from the main square. Lovely people, beautiful pristine room (and excellent bathroom), delicious breakfast served in the garden. You must definitely stay here!

Beautiful hostel grounds and very spacious and comfortable double room with private bath. Short walk to the city center in a safe area. Decent breakfast and very helpful staff. They also have a resident schnauzer dog who is adorable and was probably our favorite part of this hostel. If we come back to Sucre, we will definitely come back to...
