Stayed here for 4 nights paid 80bob for double room with shared bathroom. Sucre is prob one ofte most expensive towns in bolivia, we were quoted on average 200bob for a double. If you on a budget and are not that bothered then this place is fine. The bed was crap, the bathroom was a bit smelly. The shower was... More

The couple running the hotel were very friendly, but unfortunately, that's about it. Our bed was super crappy, and after a couple of hours with the front door closed, the room smelled like a sewage system - the toilet smelled really, really bad and the bathroom had no door in it. We left after one night and moved to a... More

Hostal Charcas is a cheap hostal, centrally located. Good for those on a tight budget that just want a place to sleep. It's very basic, you get what you pay for. I paid BOB40 (around USD6) for a room with shared bathroom. Hard to beat this price.

Actually I have been disappointed by the place. I choosed it because the review seemed good on a famous travellers guide so here is my feedback : ++ a very nice and helpful lady at the front desk, a bit like a mama ++ convenient to book the tour for Tarabuco as the bus leaves from there ++ price, 70...

I've experiences better and worse hostels-- this is a decent choice for sure, as long as you are a backpacker with backpacker standards. We got a triple room. It was clean and simple. Wifi was good in our room. Although they said hot showers available, 3 of us were there for 3 nights and only 1 person got a hot... More

It is well placed but I found a better hostel for the same money with WiFi, a TV in the room, also with cleaner carpets and a kitchen for guests to use. The stone floors are cleaned but the carpet in the room was horrible and a bit smelly. The room had a small table and a chair to read... More

I stayed in a single room which wasn't the best in the world, but it was reasonably clean. There were some problems with hot water in the showers, which may be annoying in winter months I imagine. The room was a bit stuffy. The staff were helpful and the hotel organises trips to the nearby Tarabuco market on Sundays.

We stayed here for a week, and had the best room in the house - the one right at the top, with what feels like a personal roof terrace. The rooms themselves are fine, but the ones on the other floors are a bit dark. The bathrooms are ok, but could do with being cleaned a bit more often. The... More

Good sized rooms but with a notable odour. Hostel claims to have hot showers. Lucky if you get 30 seconds of warm water before the shower turns ice cold. Bathrooms are exceptionaly dirty and unsanitory. Good location one block from the central plaza and across from market. However they lock the door very early at night and it is difficult... More
