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 you to book tickets to your next destination or to the Sunday market in Tarabuco.
All together a very nice, clean place with lots of space, a garden, tv room, living room and good wifi!!

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. It was like staying at someone's house, but not in an intrusive way.
We found the bike hire a bit expensive.

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 spirit was missing, but for us it didn't matter, we had a very pleasant stay.

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 kitchen is well equipped and clean, although we didnt need to use it very much. The bathrooms are also clean, the showers work and have hot water. The shower drain is a bit blocked, but it's not a problem unless you like to take super long showers. I would definitely have liked to stay longer at Forestero!

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 had a huge kitchen to use, which we gladly enjoyed with several other travellers for a huge Christmas dinner. There is a laundry area and outside yard and garden. It is a few blocks away from the plaza, but still very close. There is a delicious place to eat across the road called SuperPlanchita.
We highly recommend this place and would stay here again. They are opening a new annex in the same complex in January as well. Thanks!!!

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 centre of town.

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 garden to sit and relax in. The owner was also helpful in sorting bus tickets (for a small commission). Overall a nice quiet, leisurely place to spend some time in Sucre.
