What slightly worried me about this hostel was the lack of lockers but actually, the atmosphere and crowd there felt really, really safe so I was not even slightly worried once we had settled in. Also, there is a coded lock on the door which adds security against random people walking in off the street. And the manager, Mike (lovely and friendly) is on guard at the front desk almost 24/7. No breakfast included but location is close to market and lovely, cheap restaurants. Would recommend!
Very nice Hostel in the Center of Sucre with a beautiful rooftop. Good equipted kitchen and very nice comon area. We could check in the Room at 5 am after a 6hour Busride...verrynice!! There are no keys for the rooms, no lockers and no posibility to give the valuables to the reseption. But they dont let any one who us not staying in the Hostel furter than the Resepion.
The best hostel in Sucre! Mike the owner is a legend and very helpful. Spotlessly clean! Great kitchen, value, roof terrace and laundry service. The wifi isn't as bad as it seems once your connected. And having a code on the door makes it pretty safe. Loved it!
Great basic hostel - Mike is a really awesome, friendly guy. Hostel itself is really spacious with big rooms and a great roof-top terrace on which to hang out and meet people. No breakfast, bar or booze available for purchase on site but there is a shop a couple doors up and, of course, not having to pay inflated prices for stuff supplied by the hostel contributes to the hostel's being super cheap! Definitely the hostel of choice for the budget-conscious traveler.
Worth going to this hostel just to meet the dude who runs it! Funniest guy ever. This place has good hot showers, is in a central position, cheap as chips and a decent chill out area. On the downside, the wifi sucks bigtime and there are no lockers for your bags/valueables.
Nice hostel! Had a good time with lots of other backpackers on the rooftop terrace :) kitchen where you can cook all the good food you bring from the central market, or you can sit at the table watching others cook ;) Be careful with the oven!! Close the door slowely when you put your dish in.. Hostel owner can get a bit annoyed ;)
Would be even better if there were safes/lockers for our valubles.

Really nice hostel, Mike is a really nice guy and there are a lot of people studying Spanish in Sucre so you can find good crowds! Definately would recommend.
Mike, the owner, really is the best host you could ask for. The facilities are clean and comfortable and this was one of our favourite hostels in all of South America. Highly recommend!!
Great hostel of the highest standard! Would be perfect if there were any lockers but it was still very safe. Thanks Maik, beste grüße aus Hamburg!
Everything about this hostel was basically perfect until the owner checked two people into our dorm room before we had checked out (and about an hour before the check-out time). That left a bit of a sour taste in our mouth because it made for quite an uncomfortable situation as the two new guests unpacked their bags on and around our beds! Never had that happen before!
Superb hostel. Great location and facilities. Mike, the owner, is a legend, Incredibly clean and great rooftop patio area to relax. Awesome choice for Sucre.
We had two great nights hanging out in the kitchen cooking food together, drinking and chatting. Even the owner, Mike, came and joined us which made the atmosphere even better. He was also really helpful and friendly.
Great cosy place! Near to great pubs and the plaza/market. Owner Mike is a fun character.
Really a nice hostel, good facilities, very nice and helpful staff, perfect location. The only thing missing are the lockers, but nothing disappeared.
Very clean pretty hostel in beautiful old colonial house. Friendly owner and nice social vibe. Unfortunately no lockers but hostel felt secure with coded door.
