Very good hostel ! One of the best I've been to south america and probably the best in bolivia ! The breakfast is just amazing you have the choice of 3 combination , and it's very yummy. The staff is very helpful and you can have lessons of spanish and sports too. This is the perfect place if you want to learn spanish and to relax. There is a garden, hamac and a kitchen. You can work as a volunteer too! I would definitely recommend it

Beautiful hostel in the heart of Sucre. This place feels like a home away from home whilst travelling. The staff are lovely, the breakfast is amazing and the place itself is a beautiful building with a big garden (complete with hammocks) The fresh baked cakes and Pilates classes are also a huge bonus! Would definitely recommend :)


We stayed here for more than two weeks and met some really great people. This is a nice, quiet, clean hostel with a decent kitchen and comfy beds. The staff are really friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. Breakfast is easily the best hostel breakfast we've had in nearly 4 months of travel in South America and except for the toast that comes with the omelette (1of 3 options available every day) all are wheat-free. They even made awesome flourless chocolate cake for us twice in the cafe!


Great hostel! Very welcoming and relaxing. The breakfast is good and so is the food and cake from the cafe.


Very nice hostel. Great breakfast (choice of egg fritata, fruit salad or tasty porridge), comfortable common areas and excellent staff. Easy walk to the city centre. Only problems were lack of hot water and extremely patchy wifi.


It was so worth paying the extra £1 compared to other hostels. This was more like a house than a hostel. Very clean bedrooms, linen and bathrooms. Absolutely best breakfasts you'll find in south america... AND they make fresh cakes. You can also do Spanish lessons, Pilates etc etc. Great location too :)


I stayed here for a week, and I couldn´t have asked for a better hostel. While it lacks great internet, a tv and a suitably sized kitchen, it makes up for it with it´s atmosphere and volunteers. I was pretty sick during my stay, and a volunteer constantly checked up on me. Organized wally was a ton of fun, and it felt more like I was with family than just a bunch of backpackers. Awesome hostel, awesome volunteers, awesome carrot cake


I've been at Beehive for over two weeks now and I have only positive things to say. Sucre is a great place to stay in Bolivia, especially if you want to learn spanish. This hostel is super chill and has social events scheduled from time to time, including Wally, a more awesome version of indoor volleyball. The staff is helpful, professional, and friendly, including the volunteers, who put in a lot of work into the hostel. As it is wherever you go as a traveler, home is where you make it.

Chilled out hostel about 6 blocks from the central plaza. Great hostel for what it does, i.e. chilled-out, learn Spanish with the excellent onsite teachers. *however* bear in mind there is a CURFEW of midnight during the week and 3am on weekends. This is stated by the hostel but can be missed, e.g. by myself :) I didn't find this to be a particularly social hostel. It's excellent for the type of place it is, but if you want to go out/party/socialise suggest to stay elsewhere.


I stayed for 4 days then switched to another hostel. The kitchen was super small without sufficient cutlery. There's only one worn-out cooking knife which bends while you cut. Garbage bin was always 200% full. But, there's actually a fully equipped big kitchen on G/F, but it's for staff only! Booked for 6 ppl dorm and they put me in the 10 ppl dorm coz "there's no cost difference". Some guests emptied their backpacks on the floor, the room was chaotic that I can't stand, but staff neglected it.

We value your feedback and apologize for your negative experience with us. Our guests do tend to be more conscientious travelers. Sadly, this was not the case during your stay. People always book the 6-bed dorm; they may not prefer it, so we do allow people to choose upon arrival. Dorm beds now have drawers, so belongings can be tucked away beneath bunks and volunteers have been told where to get more kitchen supplies. We always try to improve and hope our guests can appreciate this. Thanks!


Great vibe, nice place to stay - would definitely recommend.
