“Stay away unless you want to get ripped off”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This hostel decided to change the price of the private room when it came to checking out. Upon arrival the night staff agreed a price of 140 bol for the room. When we came to check out the reception staff charged us 200 bol. The night staff lied to my face saying i was wrong.

We stayed at Las Torres for initially 3 nights but decided to change hotel after one night. At the day of arrival we booked 2 single rooms, for Bs 100 each, an economical deal. One of the rooms was very noisy (with all windows closed), the water pressure was little and the shower cold.

The promised "grande buffet" breakfast turned out to be basic continental. Later one we were told this was because of our low rate.. Afterwards we were treated in a quite rude way by the receptionist.

We decided to change hotels: good choice, better value, better everything.
If your in need for a room, its an ok option, but we suggest to take another place in the same neighbourhood for a more pleasant stay in Sucre.

I stayed here for a week last month, and my feelings about the service was mixed (the rooms were ok, although the breakfast was poor). Alas, when I was checking out, I had my small rucksack stolen by thieves (I think there's a real problem with petty theft and noise with the street this hostel is on). The staff were pretty unsympathetic, and sought to lay the blame on me, even though I was robbed at the reception desk by a Bolivian man they just let in. Avoid, if you want to keep your possessions!!

Nice rooms with the possibility to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Breakfast is included,a simple, but good enough breakfast. The hostel has a very good location very close to the main square. Staff is friendly.

220 Bolivianos for an apparently nice and clean room...it was really nice but not clean: only perfumed. the carpet was full of dust. We stayed two nights and the room was not cleaned; when we asked for some clean towels they tried to give us dirty ones!!
breakfast is barely sufficient for the guests and it's not truly "a buffet" as they say.
We used their laundry service and they granted us our clothes would have been ready in the afternoon (...which afternoon?). we had to solicit them to have our clothes back at least the evening before leaving! Do read their quality policy...and laugh!
Value for money: poor!

This hostal is in a good central location and even though in the middle of town it is reasonably quiet and the building is nice. The breakfast is in a lovely dining room. But after the perfume in the room wore off there was a terrible smell coming from the drain in the bathroom which was disgusting. Add to that the fact that I stayed two days and the room was not cleaned during the day for the second night which I would have expected for that price. It wasn't that clean either and some of the fittings were falling off the wall - I had to fix the curtain rail myself.

The location of the hostel is excellent. Really close to the plaza de armas, but because are around a courtyard, they are very quit. The beds are fine and you get a tv in your room. The badroom was okay, good have been a bit cleaner. We only went for the breakfast onces and where dissapointed. Very old bread and a soso egg. But the price is okay, so you can eat breakfast somewhere else.
Most of the staffmembers are very friendly. We only had a problem with one. Because they send a taxi to the airport to pick us up, but other people went with our taxi. So we got a taxi on our own and paid for it. At the end the girl expected us to pay for the other taxi aswell, wich we didn't. (By the way: the charge you 35 bolivianos for pick up from the airpot, while the taxi normally costs 25 bolivianos)
