“Great Location In Sucre But TERRIBLE Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

The Hostal is superbly located very near the main Plaza and close to loads of eateries. The Colonial style of the building is quite interesting, and it is generally quite clean. Wifi is OK depending on location, and the Central Courtyard is very nice on a sunny day.

Unfortunately we found the staff to be quite dis-interested, generally unfriendly and un-helpfull. Even on occasion rude. A real shame!

Room Tip: Try room 42 (a suite at the same price as a double) with a very comfortably bed, a new flat screen T...

A whitish pleasant looking colonial style building, like many buildings around Sucre town square. Hotel rooms facing the lovely courtyard. Decent size room n bed. A bit cold though. No heater in room. A bit dated wardrobe. Cable tv. Free wifi but signal not so good. Good location near to the main square. Request for hair dryer but there is none available in the hostal. Overall not too bad for a couple of nite stay.

Old fashioned, with a colonial air - friendly staff (possibly family-run) - the ensuite window was frosted, but there was no blind/curtain and as it overlooked the courtyard, we had to go to the toilet with the light switched off, all compensated though by a padded toilet seat! Stately restaurant served a good breakfast - coffee interesting though........

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

Following a two-year old review from Lonely Planet, I decided to stay at Hostal Sucre. I planned to stay there for three weeks but after one week I could no longer stand the cold, old and not comfortable at all room. It is a pitty that this beautiful colonial building has not been kept up in good shape as a hostel. Don't get me wrong, the staff is wonderfully helpful and friendly and the hostel has an amazing colonial patio. But once you get in your room, see the old towels, stained sheets, soiled carpet floor...and then feel the cold Sucre nights in an already cold bedroom... You can find better places just as conveniently located for the same money. I did.
