Beautiful colonial house with a great garden to chill out, including a little library and reading area. Clean facilities and plenty of space at the courtyard. The dorms are big and comfortable with lockers. The staff is 2 lovely brothers both of them super helpful providing maps and info about sucre and surroundings. better breakfast than usual with juices and option for eggs or fruit salad besides the classical bread with butter and dulce de leche. Really good value!


Beautiful hostel. Booked two nights and ended up staying six. The breakfasts are the best I've had in four months of travelling. Really helpful staff. Lots of activities on offer without it feeling like exclusive organised fun. Ask Amanda about local eateries, for sure. Only thing is the bus from Uyuni gets in at 4am so you'll be stuck outside until 8am on arrival unless a volunteer wakes up to let you in. Stay here. Do it.


Cool place to chill for a while, especially to study Spanish. I planned on staying for a couple days and stayed for 10 days. Very chill vibe. Breakfast is excellent. The rooms are great. The only complaint I have is the "rules" are a bit excessive.


They offer a breakfast like no other in South America with your choice of oats, eggs, or fruit salad. Two really nice living room areas, a patio with hammock and space to dry clothes, porch, and activity room. The staff and owners are nice, beds are comfortable, just a few blocks away from the central market, and showers are good. Not a bad thing to say about the place.


A home away from home. Planing on staying for only a couple of days, this hostel sucked me in for over a month (and I haven't been the only one). A lovely and quiet little refuge within the sometimes quite chaotic Bolivia. Beautiful garden, nice and comfy beds, fantastic breakfast, great staff, sports and activities every day and somehow a meeting point for the most interesting and fun people I've met on my travels until now. A place to always come back to.

stayed in the 8 bedroom dorm, which was spacious and had good beds. The beehive is a community hostal with good values which we appreciated. The breakfast is AMAZING! You can choose something different every day and it's all delicious! If it's fully booked, it can get a bit crowdy and noisy at night. Close to the center and plenty of information about Sucre! Staff member Sonia is a Speedy Gonzales and she can arrange tours and bus tickets.


Every1 at this hostel (from staff to fellow guests/travellers) was kind


I enjoyed my time at the beehive a lot. Was supposed to stay a few days but stayed for a week because this is such a relaxed place. Because they have onlye a few rooms, you know everybody which gives this hostel a homely, family vibe. Sunday dinner is great and breakfast is the best I have had in Bolivia. Comfy beds and nice facilities.


This is a very, very good hostel. Only thing I could think of was that sometimes the WiFi was a bit slow, but that is not something you should worry about; the hostel has a great atmosphere, has a perfect location and the breakfast is amazing!


Really nice hostel! Lovely staff/ volunteers and great breakfast! Would recommend.


A very good hostel with the best breakfast we've had on our travels. Also there's loads of activities going on and it's very inclusive. However we stayed in the 'matrimonial' room. The room is beautiful and big, BUT there's no wifi reception in the room, it's right by the door bell and you can hear every word from the staff/volunteer common area downstairs. We would really recommend this hostel if you're staying in the dorms, but probably not for the matrimonial


A lovely place to relax and meet nice people. Really nice vibe to the place, staff and volunteers were really helpful. Very enjoyable stay.


Had a great time here. Almost felt like I was back at home which was nice after a while on the road. Great New Years Eve meal too, thank you

Amanda is awesome and has the inside track on almost all of Sucre. Worth the extra few Bolivianos with the huge breakfasts and savings on in-house organized activities and private local spanish teachers. Super chill place for taking a break from travels, getting to know a community in-depth, and learning spanish. Sucre is the nicest city in Bolivia.


This is a fabulous small hostel, with a great friendly atmosphere. Fantastic food, tasty breakfasts included, and optional Sunday dinner, not included, was well worth the extra expense. A large garden, meant a great place to relax on an afternoon off from sight seeing. You won't be able to leave!


nice place to stay
