The Beehive
Ranked #4 of 62 Specialty Lodging in Sucre
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I stayed in the Beehive couple of weeks. I felt in love with the place. The Beehive has nothing of the others places in town or in Bolivia. In The Beehive, the staff is there for you, to give you advises or just to chat. You will have an AWSOME breakfast! Three choices, homemade and fresh from the morning. If you want to improve your spanish, there are some great teachers and the lessons are cheap. Good beds and real hot shower (so good for who knows the "agua caliente" over there!). Without forgetting all the workshops opportunities there: cooking classes, pilates or everything you wanna share. Go there, you won't regret it!
Thanks for everything to all the staff...

Room Tip: La chambre bleue est plus chaude et a une vue plus sympa. La orange plus fraiche.

We arrived in Bolivia expecting quite basic accommodation but were blown away by this hostel. Amanda has created such a wonderful home away from home experience, with amazing breakfasts, comfortable beds, Pilates classes and a number of activities to partake in, including private Spanish lessons. I've extended my holiday in Bolivia just so I can stay here longer.

The Beehive has to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in. There is such a welcoming and relaxed environment. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the breakfasts are to die for, and the staff are so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Its centrally located, a few blocks from the main plaza, and very close to a big supermarket and good restaurants. It's a fantastic place to stay for a night or two or if you're in Sucre learning Spanish (also, they can arrange private Spanish lessons while you stay).

It's a great place, and I'd stay at The Beehive again in a heart beat!

This hostel has hands down the BEST breakfast and beds of any hostel I've stayed in South America. The beds are amazing so thick and comfortable, showers hot and heaps of pressure not to mention the amazing staff!!!! Was very homely and an excellent place to stay to learn spanish in the comfort of the hostel, Pilates classes, cooking classes, language exchange the list goes on. Would recommend this hostel to everyone!! The only problem is having to leave :(

Room Tip: The blue room is the best, sunny balcony.. awesome

The Beehive ''La Colmena'' is easily the best hostel I stayed at in Bolivia. It's certainly the cleanest, has the thickest, most comfortable mattresses and blankets, the hottest showers, the most delicious breakfast, WiFi of course, and is located right by the main plaza. Kudos to the 4 girls running the place; they clearly have a vision of what they are building there. Well worth the couple extra bucks, seriously!
