“Cheap and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Cheap and clean - we paid B$ 60 for a double room without bathroom. The place is quiet and nice, the rooms are basic but decent and clean. They don't believe in toilet paper though, be sure to bring your own. Oh, and most of the bathrooms don't have a decent lock, so everyone can pop in during your shower or toilet visit.

Reception is often staffed by elder people, who aren't as receptive or understanding as you'd want them to be.

They lost some of our laundry - something that can happen anywhere, but it took a whole lot of explaining and waiting to sort it out. I wouldn't recommend handing over expensive clothing.

Apart from those few shortcomings, it's a clean and decent place for good price.

Room Tip: We were in a room near the back of the first atrium. Street noise slightly audible, but not annoying...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Arrived in Sucre when it was still dark out. I hadn't made prior reservations and the first place the taxi took me was full. It worked out because Alojamiento Potosi was awesome.

Once you pass through the foyer, you will pass through two courtyards. My room was in the second one (further away from the street), so it was nice and quiet. There are plenty of bathrooms. Two with just toilet and sink on the second floor and then two downstairs complete with shower. The showers are electric, and at most, the water is lukewarm, but it's Bolivia, so I'm not holding anything against them. My room was on the second floor and was basic, but it was warm, comfortable, and clean. You are given your own key and padlock to secure your door. There is also a kitchen for guests, but it looks like no one really uses it as food is so cheap in Bolivia. Plus, you need to bring your own matches to light the gas stoves. The hostel is located near Parque Bolivar, which is where a mini replica of the Eiffel Tower is located.

NOTE: I stayed here May 2012.

This great little hostel is a gem in Sucre.

Nice open courtyards and a kitchen that wasn't too busy.

Rooms are no frills basic, and the showers are just hot enough, but it is cleaner, quieter and a nicer building then most other hostels in the same price range in the area.
