excellent hostel, great atmosphere, super clean, very spacious, rooftop. Only downside is there are only three bathrooms to split between two dorms so you often have to wait during peak hours (morning/night)

Cheap as chips and twice as good. Best shower in Bolivia??
Really good hostel and owner. I didn't wanna leave. Unfortunately I had to. ;)
Great hostel. Mike the owner is very friendly. Lovely terrace to hang out and enjoy your meal in the sun or drinks at night. Nice bakery just up the street for morning bread. Location is also great. I'm still here as its a great town. Lots to do and good spanish schools
Positives: great value, large dorms, big terrace to relax on, well-stocked kitchen, central location and VERY clean Negatives: no lockers (although I didn't have any problems with my belongings) Note the owner is on the eccentric side...
Great place - one of the most sociable places I've stayed, with everyone eating together on the terrace. The owner was really friendly and helpful.
It did the job to give us a place to stay. Internet is bad, but that's Bolivia I guess. Some cool travellers. No lockers for bags. Owner let us chill there after we missed our bus
Great hostel in great location. Comfy beds, super clean and best hot shower I'd had in months. Could do with a common room as everyone congregated in kitchen which is a bit small but apart from that it's highly recommended
Nice place, run by a good guy. Decent roof terrace although a bit of music wouldn't go amiss up there. No breakfast provided but the kitchen was excellent and plenty of shops near by (or places to eat if you dont fancy cooking!). Couldn't be located much better, just a 5 minute walk to the main square. Upstairs dorms liable to be noisy if people are out drinking on the terrace late at night...
The place is extremely laidback. A great place to relax. Also Mike was awesome. Very helpful! I would've stayed longer if I could.
A special mention to mike the guy is welcoming funny and just generally makes you smile. The description of the hostel is honest wifi is better than expected but no lockers is the only real complaint! I stayed in the 4 bed ensure room it was very spacious and the bathroom was always cleaned...would return
This is a great little hostel. It is spotlessly clean & the showers were the best I had had in ages. Mike is a great host with boundless energy. There is a nice kitchen to use & rooftop terrace. I was in a 4 bed dorm ensuite - loads of room & quiet. A fair number of guests were here studying Spanish & the atmosphere created was really friendly. Right across the road is a bakery which sells fresh rolls for as little as 50c. a huge real chocolate croissant is 2.50Bs.
One of the nicest hostels I have been to so far. The atmosphere is great and it is easy to get to know other travelers or people staying in Sucre for longer. It is also very clean and you can definitely feel at home in this hostel.
The atmosphere in the hostel is fantastic. I initially intended to stay three nights and ended staying two weeks. The beds are very comfortable and all common areas are very clean - the showers are hot and there's plenty of utensils in the kitchen. Its a great place to meet people or relax if you're going to study Spanish. My only issue is that the wifi drops in and out very frequently.
Nice hostel, there is seldom anyone at the front desk though which we needed a few times so was slightly frustrating..! Other than that hot showers, comfy beds, good location. No lockers but felt pretty safe, guess it depends who you have in your room though!
Best hostel we have stayed at. Mike is hilarious, and cleans clothes for 10 bolivs. The vibe was so friendly and it seems to be full of cool people. We stayed twice as long as we intended and most people do too. There was even a guy staying for like 2 months.

Only 2 showers, so sometimes you have to wait a bit in the morning, but they are always spotless clean. Because Mike, the awesome owner, is almost always cleaning. Lot of people stay here a long time to study Spanish, which makes the atmosphere really relaxed. I stay here 2 weeks myself as well. No breakfast, but easy to make yourself. And no lockers, but Mike doesn't let anyone from outside enter, so it is really safe.
Clean hostel. Good bathrooms (clean tidy hot showers) Really good sturdy comfy bunk beds. Staff were friendly. Good value. Good location. Would recommend.
