Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed 4 nights in a private room with bathroom
Very friendly staff and owner
Sociable space & didn't seem to be an issue if we were in the cafe or on the patio using Internet etc
Comfortable beds
Showers could have been a bit hotter. Electric shower in our bathroom was just about hot enough. We used communal gas showers as well
Would recommend

The atmosphere and the rooms are really nice. There are also rooms in the garden! I´ve never been in such a relaxed hostel. Staff is nice! Price is o.k.!
Also the Café Berlin is a really nice place to drink and eat.

Location is perfect. Staff is friendly. We stayed for 3 nights in a private double for 150bs per night. Breakfast is included. The room was nice and spacious but not very clean. But good enough. The 'hot shower' was fixed when we complained about the temperature but still the water is sort of luke warm if you don't open the tap completely.
There is a nice cafe on side which serves a delicious rellena. Recommended!!
Overall a great relaxibg stay in beautiful old mansion, friendly people on awesome location.

3 friends and me stayed at the ICBA in Sucre and had a great time there. Everything is clean, the atmosphere is great and everybody is helpful and friendly. You're able to have a drink or meal at the great "Kultur café Berlin" inside the building, but even though there are lots of nice bars/restaurants in the neighbourhood.
You'll have wifi and the city centre is 5 minutes to walk. Absolutely recommendable

Had a great time in this hostal. Overall, I spent more than 4 months in the ICBA Wasi house between the general dorm, private rooms and a homestay. Its an amazing place with restaurant attached and great offerings for Spanish school (they do Spanish and Quechua). I came knowing no spanish and now I can speak pretty well and understand almost everything. The shared room is the place to go if you want to meet other backpackers. But whats great about the rooms is they offer a nightlife scene at the bar downstairs while also keeping the actual rooms really quiet and comfortable for those attending school and for those on an earlier schedule. Private rooms all have personal bathrooms and range from 1 person to 4 people. Wonderful owner, he will try to improve anything to make your stay even easier. 5 out of 5 for me.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center. In the main dorm, the upstairs beds have less day to day traffic.

We stayed 3 nights at Icba Wasi and it was so relaxed! There are two patios and one garden to hang out, where you can meet people if you like. The place opened only 4 months ago and you can see they really put a lot of effort in it. There is a café attached to it (KulturCafé Berlin from the same owner) which serves good food. My boyfriend was recovering from food poisening and we couldn't have thought of a better place!

This is in the Lonely planet book for south America...but as a school and a restaurant but not as a place to stay. This is also a great place to stay. We did take spanish classes so we got a deal on the room. Im not sure the rate of as now but with school the stay was cheaper with spanish classes. As for the rooms they were great clean and vell kept.
The spanish was a one on one and we loved it as well.
The hostel is only a few blocks from the main square.
Great staff.
