I stayed in a single with private bathroom and the bed was a bit tight. Taller people or people with high bed standards may want to check it first or choose a different room option. Otherwise, the building is amazing for a hostel and place is well run.
No security, there is a bar on site which is open to locals dorms dont lock so anyone could just walk in and take whatever they want. Staff average
Great location, easy walking distance from the middle of town and a short taxi ride from the bus station. The dorm room was big but there weren't enough bathrooms. The room wasn't locked and anyone can walk in but there were lockers. The breakfast was great!
Amazing house, with a garden (hammocks!), spacious rooms and a nice patio. Close to all things you want to see and do in Sucre. The only things I didn´t like was that the staff didn´t know very well what was going on in Sucre and what we could do there (thank god for tourist agancies!) and that breakfast is not a buffet, but that they will serve it in the Cafe with the slowest service I´ve ever experienced. Apart from that I really recommend the place, because it is beautiful and relaxing!
Beautiful looking hostel, plenty to do. The owner was Lovely and very accomodating. Well run hostel. Great food to.
Its a beautiful old colonial house and its seriously big/spacious with bar area and hangout chilout garden area in back. We booked a dorm (which looked spacious) and it was full so they gave us a 3 bed room. There is a rainforest shower so ask about it. Door has security code at night and its cheap. Two complaints: breakfast was rubbish and wifi barely worked, but i get the impression wifi is slow everywhere in sucre.
Don't book your bus through them, they charged us over 50% of the ticket in commission. Good location, breakfast is the usual, lost my booking from hostelworld, wifi is patchy
Best hostel experience in Bolivia. Rooms were clean and comfortable, shower was consistenly hot. Nightly activities were fun. Thanks to Klaus, Nelson and Jo who were extremely friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Definately recommend this place!
Kulture Berlin is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Not only were all the staff helpful, organising cheap Spanish lessons and trips, but the owner Claus is also extremely hospitable, and has his guests best interests at heart. It also has a good atmosphere about the place, an old Colonial House with three courtyards and a bar, which is a good place to met people if you are travelling alone. The location is great, only two blocks away from the main square.
Lovely hostel in colonial building. Rooms very spacious, definitely not cramming in as many beds as possible. Lovely gardens and patios. No kitchen was a nuisance but the owner (who is lovely) let us use his, and I understand they will be rectifying this problem. The wifi connection was awful which was an annoyance. The only other drawback is that the only indoor communal area not in the bedrooms is also the bar/restaurant and so it closes when the bar closes -- very early on a Sunday.
We stayed in a double room and didn't want to leave. The room had rustic charm and felt like a home not a hostel. No kitchen for guests to use but with a cheap cafe/restaurant on site it was not an issue for a short stay. We spent loads of time in the restaurant drinking, especially the cocktails during happy hour. It's not a party atmosphere, very chilled with lovely colonial courtyards and a garden to relax in.
It was absolutely great to stay at this little oasis - the garden rooms are just relaxing and quiet!the bar is a great place to meet people locals as well as trabellers - I ended up staying 4 nights!!Claus has and is doing a great place with this hostel!

This was a very nice hostel, with great food and staff. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, and also the opportunity to party on weekends. Especially liked the beautiful garden out the back, and excellent location!!!
A very good hostel, the rooms are comfortable and spacious, the staff friendly and helpful and there is a very nice social atmosphere around the place. It also feels pretty secure (lock boxes in the rooms, access code to get in at night), can organise tours etc. and is well positioned near to the center of town.
A great hostel with a brilliant atmosphere; always plenty going on. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Only downsides are temperamental wifi and hot showers, which is to be expected throughout the country, so if these are things you really 'need' then Bolivia in general probably isn't the place for you. Otherwise, KulturBerlin is! I really recommend the place.

Amazing! The dorms are well done and really good for meeting people. There is a bar/restaurant downstairs with good food. The owner and his wife are both wonderful people. I stayed for Spanish classes and by the end everyone knew my name (including the people in the kitchen!). Lots of great activities. I really liked salsa night and traditional dance night. I also think there are private rooms in the back garden which would be perfect for people on a higher budget. Its so peaceful back there! A+
Great hostel, all the staff are very friendly and gave me good advices about the city. The hostal is located in the center of the city. The breakfast was really delicious. Highly recommended
Home sweet home, it´s a great hostal.. the dorm acutally looks like someones home not and not simple room with beds. The Atmosphere, Building etc. are great too. It has been my best hostal so far!

We had a short stay here, but it was very nice. Nice garden. They were doing a lot of renovations, I bet it'll be even nicer when they're done.
