I had an impression this hostel is just average. Has nothing that would tell it apart and one needs more on Sucre's competitive backpackers scene. The lady at the recepton was nice but for the guy work seemed a punishment. There's an ok kitchen, wifi's not so slow (as for Bolivia), beds comfy enough, prices quite low... Still, I'd much...

I don't understand what all the bad reviews are talking about. This may not be the cleanest place but if you want perfect, you shouldn't go to one of the cheapest places in Sucre! The breakfast is great, it's the most diverse breakfast I've had in Bolivia, with eggs, bread, cereal, juice, coffe/tea. There is no toilet paper here but... More

So, the hostel is situated right in the center of Sucre -easily the prettiest city in Bolivia. People are nice and outgoing, so parties and drinking games can appear out of nowhere (there's a notice curfew though). Even though this creates a grey ambience for cracking the ice and meeting fellow travelers it an be uncomfortable for less active people.... More

I stayed there for 2 nights, it was a bad experience, the toilet were not clean and never there's toilet paper, the wifi function only at the reception and it closes quite early. On the secund night there was a huge group of drunk locals that made noise until 4:30 and no one could sleep..And there is no atmosphere at... More

I woudl rate this hostel at least average if not the event I am going to write about first I would like to warn about the most scary and worrying situation I ( and many other guests) have experienced in any hostel in over 50 countries.

Honestly the only good thing about this hostel is the price (45 a night per person for a private room for 2) but everything else was crap. Breakfast was bad, it didn't feel safe, there weren't any guests (probably had something to do with the fact that it's terrible) and therefore no atmosphere. Going to the bathroom at night was...

Avoid this hostel at all costs! The toilets look worse than Baghdad, with no toilet paper, toilet seats or locks, and faeces everywhere. The staff are extremely rude and inconsiderate. A friend of ours was hoping to store his luggage for the day, but was forced to leave the premises immediately. The staff even switched off the internet in the... More

I stayed here for about a week. It wasen`t dirty, but it sure needs a lot of improving! The breakfast was not worth waking up for, the showers downstairs didn`t have light boulbs, the wifi is the worst I`ve ever had and the beds are like hammocks. I found the staff pleasant, but when some people asked for extra dishes... More

The hostel is described as 'beautiful and romantic' but it's actually rundown and dirty. There was vomit outside our bedroom door (that the lock was broken on) which absolutely stunk. It had clearly been there a while and was there for the entire duration of our (very short; we left after one night despite having paid for two) stay. The... More

The hostel is located at the center near the plaza, supermarket and travel agency - thats good. The service is bad and the staff are not very nice. The toilets are bad - some has no seat, no locks, no toilet paper (which you are charged for extra ones), not adequate clean. Has breakfest - 2 buns, butter and jam,... More
