Nice and cute, although the entrance scared us a little bit at first. Rooms are small but good enough. The breakfast area is really cute. The staff had good recommendations, especially of where to go for the sunset. Nice!

LA Escondada is the nicest of the Hotels/Hostels I stayed in during my month in Bolivia. The location is fantastic, right in the tourist area, opposite the central market and a short walk to Sucre's main plaza. The hostel is split into two sections, with dorms and a few large rooms in the front and peaceful courtyard surrounded by rooms,... More

We stayed for five nights at this hostel and had no major complaints. The rooms are spacious, with hot showers and cable TV. There is a lovely courtyard which is so quiet, you can hardly believe the hustle and bustle of the centre once you step out of the door. And there is a kitchen which is fully stocked for... More

We enjoyed our nicely decorated room in Sucre with good sunlight, wifi, and endless hot water. Location across from the market and near the plaza was very convenient. Breakfast is basic but good. Overall seems a little overpriced. Only complaint is regarding the laundry service, one of my thick hiking socks was lost. The laundry service had folded the sock... More

Very central, just a few minutes away from the nice main plaza. Big room with TV and comfortable bed. It's on a main street but set back from the road so you cant hear any road noise. Very clean but if anything lacks character, feels a bit like sleeping in a shopping mall.

the hotel is right in the center of town, so you are near everything. It is very cozy and clean, with a nice inner patio. the room was not too big, but big enough and nice shower. The breakfast is self service, meaning you boil the water and cook your eggs, but it was quite akward being asked to wash... More

After arriving from Santa Cruz, we stayed 3 nights at this romantic oasis in the middle of Sucre. Instead of a hostal, the atmosphere feels more like a hotel. Very peacefull and quiet. Our double room was located in the back at a central courtyard with nice flowers etc. The room was bright, clean, good beds, with a clean and... More

We stayed one night at La Escondida Hostel. It located in a busy street, but once you get into the hostel, it was surprisingly quiet. It has a beautiful courtyard and we stayed in a two-beds room upstairs. The room was bright, clean, simple but comfortable. In addition, the staff spoke good English and very helpful. We were very happy... More

This hostel is tucked in an entryway off the main market street of Sucre. The rooms are further down a nice wide hallway, and thus are VERY quiet, with no street noise at all. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. My friend got very sick in Sucre with an obstructed bowel. The staff were very attentive in trying to... More
