Clean and great location (2 blocks from the centre) but pretty boring hostel. But you can't complain for the price, the beds were comfortable and the wifi is as bad as the hostel description says!
This hostel was not bad, but theres nothing particularly outstanding about it. It was cheap which is the upside.
Really friendly hostel, great terrace to relax in the sun. The owner, Mike, is great, so friendly and relaxed. Great hostel
For sure one if the best hostels I've stayed at in South America. The hostel is super clean, showers are amazing, Mike is a great house, and the kitchen is well equipped. The matresses and pillows aren't the best but the positives for sure out weigh that. Excellent location, and great value for money!
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.
