I'm in two minds about this hostel. Firstly i just want to say what an an absolute ray of sunshine Stephanie who volunteers there she made our stay. However, this place severely over sells itself on here, the kitchen is dingy and dirty and felt like all the cutlery and crockery are dirty. The hot water is temperamental, Internet awful. Garden tiny, no sun and there are no volunteer opportunities and the people who stay there are cliquey and pretentious and rude. Ruins the whole place.


The Beehive was a great hostel! The rooms are spacious and even though there were always people talking in the garden, the noise didn't really travel to the rooms. The breakfast was delicious and almost too much to finish. Overall just very laid back, most guests are taking spanish lessons and sort of hang around the hostel for most of the day.


A great hostel with an awesome atmosphere and perfect if you're in Sucre to study Spanish. It has a very friendly and social environment, the breakfast is amazing and it's situated only a few blocks from the main square. There was also a gym only two blocks away which was great for me. If you're studying Spanish the hostel can actually organise you lessons which are very cheap!


Great food. Warm people. Perfect spot.

this hostel has a really good vibe and the breakfast is amazing. spanish teachers are great and for a really fair prices. i highly recomend staying here - a lot of people stay here even longer as it is hard to leave :-)


Highly recommend this place...great breakfast and lovely vibe. Rooms are nice and facilities are good.


arrived 8 in the morning, nobody there. staff prepared coffee but nobody attended to me. left the place in the end after waiting for 40 minutes whilst in plain sight of staff. place not very clean


Nice hostel with a great atmosphere. Very sociable, but in a relaxing chilled out kind of way. Very nice breakfast (oats and fruit!) which was a refreshing change to having eggs every day. Dorms are roomy and clean.


Breakfast was absolutely delicious!

The atmosphere was really nice. It was very easy to meet new people! The beds were comfortable and the breakfast good, especially on Saturday with the pancakes!! I would definitely go back there!


My deposit wasn´t recognized so I ended up paying over the quoted amount. As well, the staff never seemed there or available or made themselves evident.


Lovely atmosphere as most of the people staying here are around for a few weeks studying. Rooms are warm and the showers hot. Internet only in communal areas upstairs but that is fine. Breakfasts amazing. There is no one at the hostel from curfew (midnight week days and 3am weekends) until at least 8am which is a problem if you arrive before that like I did. Waited on the doorstop for over an hour. This needs to be flagged on the website when booking.


Beehive is more than a hostel.It's a social project where your presence adds to the local community. There is no owner on the top cashing out on your $ instead they use money to pay rent,workers and create social projects in Sucre. It focuses on empowering women,creating enterpreneur women through managing the hostel.Flat power pyramid..i've never come across such a great idea! & feels like HOME,VIBE among guests is great! They've an amazing COURTYARD.Organize dinners (veg. welcome)/activities


This hostel has an amazing atmosphere. It is really easy to meet people. My bed was comfortable, the breakfast was super good and the kitchen was ok. Few more toilets would be nice though and a mirror in the four bed room. :) Would definitely stay there again. So chilled place!


Very spacious private room with heavy duvet (very cold at night). Nice breakfast, good location and helpful book available with local recommendations. Wifi only allows a certain amount of people on and only works in common area. Bathrooms/showers not good. Would still recommend but improvements could be made on bathrooms and wifi.

Thank you very much for your recommend, considering we moved to this new location, we are working on that. Thanks again.


This is such an amazing hostel - the breakfasts are absolutely delicious. The staff and the volunteers are so friendly, and the hostel has such a great vibe. I just kept extending my stay again and again. It's close to the main square, but on a nice quiet street. The kitchen is really well stocked, and we had quite a few communal dinners while I was here.


Perfect place, perfect stay. Hostal at a good location, laid back atmosphere, friendly staff and........one of the best hostal brekkies ever! Spacy dorms with comfortable beds and good kitchen and garden facilities. So, highly recommended.


Amazing breakfast!


A great hostel we ended up staying longer than intended because we enjoyed it so much. Perfect location, great atmosphere, friendly staff, an overall homely feel. The breakfast was undoubtably the best we've had while travelling in South America, great healthy hearty options. The courtyard and kicthen were fantastic spots to socilaise or relax. Our rooms were spacious and it was easy to get a good solid night here.


Small, very relaxed with a chilled vibe. Not at all a party hostel. Rooms had heaps of space and the weekday breakfast is fabulous! The staff make an effort not only to help you but to be your mate while you are there. Showers are great, once you get the hang of them! The only downside is the kitchen, which could use an update of utensils and things. Very easy to overstay :) thanks guys for a lovely stay.
