If you are seeking a backpackers atmosphere where you meet lots of people then this is not the place for you! However we really liked this place that felt like you were visiting your grandparents house. Nice and clean, fantastic breakfast, fast wifi and the owner is lovely. We initially only booked 1 night as we wanted to fly out... More

We stayed almost a week at this hostel, the owner(lady who speaks English) seemed to be friendly at first, but at the end it came out one of the worst hostel we've stayed. Hostel has two building, one in inside is much nicer, however we stayed at the one near to the gate. We payed 50 Bol each person including... More

I'm very surprised about this review, because these guests stayed at FORASTERO for many days and they were very happy, they were very nice guests and I was friendly with them, The only problem was the last day, the check out is at 11,00 a.m, but they stayed in the house until the departure time ( 8.00 p.m) using showers,...

We had the luxury of renting a double room with ensuite bathroom. Normally these rooms aren’t that big but this room was very spacious with lots of windows and even a balcony. On arrival the friendly owner (Beatrice) gave us a map and told us a little bit about the city. They also have a travel agency and can help... More

We stayed over new year, and it was a perfect quiet haven – close enough to easily walk to town but far enough away from the bars and party places. Great guest kitchen, lovely clean sunny bedroom overlooking the garden, huge shared bathroom. With breakfast included it was excellent value for money and the owner was extremely welcoming and friendly.... More

In the Forastero Guesthouse we booked a double room for three nights. It was a clean room with a big comfortable bed and a balcony. The shared bathroom was spacious and clean. Kitchen facilities weer excellent. Breakfast was included (not when sleeping in a dorm) and there was also a tourist agency. The only thing was that the real backpackers... More

We loved staying at Forestero Guest House! The owner Beatrice was very helpful and has created a lovely setting from which to explore Sucre. The beds were comfy and the rooms spacious enough. We had a lovely view of the garden and access to a balcony. The breakfast is basic, but good, with everything you need in the morning. The... More

My husband and I stayed here through Christmas and had a really lovely time. We originally booked for three nights bought seeing the house we immediately decided to book for the full week to spend Christmas here. It is more like a large home than a hostel or hotel. Beatrice the owner, Mariana were both extremely helpful and welcoming. We... More

This is a great little hostel with all the creature comforts of home. It was lovely to have a comfy, warm bed with a TV, so we could just chill for once. Beatrice is so helpful and helped us book our bus and tour for Salar - which was also great. A great stay just 5 minutes walk from the... More

We moved to Forastero after our hostel had no more availability, for what was supposed to be one night. But we found the place so pleasant on arrival we decided to hang around in Sucre and take Spanish lessons. The rooms were really nice and clean, breakfast although early was great and quite varied. It was great to have a... More
