Amigo Hostel is a great budget option for Sucre. Its very central and so you can walk around the town easily. The breakfast is your usual bread and eggs and there is a kitchen that you can cook in (although there are very limited utensils - no knives! - and the fridge is behind reception which is a bit odd. There are quite a few communal areas but when we stayed there weren't many other backpackers around.
Location was good, 5 mins to main square. Kitchen wasn't very well equipped, no knives to eat with and the fridge wasn't in the kitchen, but behind reception.. Hostel was cold at night. Staff weren't particularly helpful. Breakfast was probably the worst I've had in South America so far. Internet was poor. Something was broken in every bathroom. It was fine, but there are much better hostels in Sucre for the same price.
Breakfast is very good, includes bread, butter and jam, eggs, juice, cereals and tea or coffee. they serve as you get there, so culd be waiting for a while if the hostel is busy. Wifi sometimes does ot work that well and best signal is at reception, none in rooms or common areas a t the back. Lots of places so sit around and talk to people.
internet sux! poor breakfast, but it´s a good location.and NO hot showers in our room (double) and the hostal is a maze :)
Really nice property, however it seems that the owner of the hostel stopped to care about the hostel. There are a bunch of little things which need to be taken care of (leaking water pipes, unusable kitchen, doors which can't be closed). This hostel has potential, but the owner need to take action soon !
Positive: reasonably priced rooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast is included. Location is good - just 2 blocks from main square and close to bars, restaurants, etc. Staff were helpful when needed. Negative: toilets could have been cleaner and had no toilet paper. Showers didn't work properly. The kitchen was locked from 6.30pm until 11am everyday and even then there was no proper fridge in which to store perishables. Internet connection was painfully slow at times.
