Like many others we only booked for one night to stay with and ended up staying for nearly a week. The community atmosphere here is better than any other hostel we've been to, the location is great and the breakfast is excellent. Spanish lessons are also cheap and easy to organise. Highly recommended!
Fantastic atmosphere, the little courtyard where everyone hangs out feels like a little slice of paradise. The staff were good, Marco especially made our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was the best I have had at any hostel, possibly ever. We stayed in the double room, which was huge. There was always hot water for the shower. There was a BBQ when we were there (again, best-ever hostel BBQ, although I haven't been to many). The wi-fi signal could be better (the walls were very thick).
My favourite hostel in Bolivia. By the end of your stay the staff and volunteers are not staff, but friends. The staff was wonderful throughout our stay and they will ensure you are clued up on what to do and where to go. A lot of people stay at the Beehive for extended periods of time (a testament to the hostel), which makes you instantly feel at home. The building is centered around a little garden which is lovely during the day. Best breakfast in South America so far.
A lot of community things in this hostel because of the volunteers. The garden is perfect to relax or learn spanish as a lot of people do there. The rooms and the kitchen are big. Nice breakfast, not as in other hostels! I already recommended the hostel to travelers! :)
Originally booked for 3 nights and stayed for 3 weeks, taking Spanish classes arranged by the hostel. This hostel is a home away from home. Friendly relaxed vibe, best breakfast I've had in South America, helpful staff, communal dinners and activities. Met some awesome people here which made the stay amazing. Definitely recommend this place. Regarding the reviews saying that this hostel is cliquey - everyone I met at this hostel was friendly and welcoming. It was hard to leave!
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.

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.
