The Beehive is a great, cosy hostel in Sucre run by a American woman and a local Bolivian woman. There are 3 dorms, two with ensuites, and a matrimonial room, as well as a kitchen, garden, three shared bathrooms, and two common areas. The owners also run several events every week, including wallyball (Bolivian volleyball, lots of fun!), pilates classes, and communal Sunday dinners. The breakfasts are also amazing, probably the best I've had in South America, and are included in the price (65BOB for a dorm bed). The showers are usually nice and hot, although as with everywhere in Bolivia they can be temperamental. There is wifi throughout the house, but when everyone is using it it can be quite slow. The location is great, a 10 minute walk from the main square on a quiet street (no traffic noise!). There is no sign outside, but it's the only green door on the street. My friend and I came to stay for a week and ended up staying for three instead, so be warned that you might not want to leave!
