Liked: The roof terrace is a great spot and makes the hostel really sociable - this is a great place if you want to meet people. The guy who runs the place is really friendly and helpful. There is a kitchen. Great location close to the city centre.

Disliked: No lockers, safe nor locks on dorm rooms. Not enough bathrooms - always waiting for the shower. The roof terrace can be noisy if you're in the adjacent dorms and want an early night.

Liked: Mike is a great host/character, the hostel is a really nice building with plenty of charm, a good sun terrace, large comfy beds, modern bathrooms, and great value. He'll do your washing for 5bvs!

Disliked: Wifi Internet is quite unstable, especially iDevices. Could do with a couple more bathrooms.

Liked: Great hostel, fantastic beds and very social environment. Perfect location too.

Disliked: Mike (the owner) tries to do too much - he is a one man band running the hostel...get some help Mike!! Also, there are no lockers which is a real issue for me in hostels.

Liked: Everything. The roof terrace was always a lovely place to chill out during the day, meet people, read, sun bathe, drink.. evening.. morning.. Any time! My favourite thing had to be Mike though. This man will become a legend amongst backpackers in Bolivia, I swear! He is so helpful and a lot of fun. Everyone I have met so far on my travels that says they are going to Sucre, I have sent to Gringo's.

Disliked: That I couldn't stay for longer!

Liked: brand new hostel, really clean, Mike who runs it is so helpful and deserves to do well as he puts in so much effort. There is a roof terrace to enjoy the sunshine, bathrooms were spotless, and a kitchen for guest use as well.

Disliked: There wasn't any breakfast, but not really a problem. When we went there wern't any lockers, so hopefully there will be soon.

Liked: Great brand new hostel right next to the Plaza. Clean, new facilities, hot showers, sun terrace on the top and will surely take off over the next few months. Owner Mike is really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Nothing! Although currently Mike is running it as a one man operation where he checks you in/out, cleans the rooms, answers questions etc. He cant keep this up forever and hed be well advised to employ someone to change sheets/clean out rooms as waiting for Mike to get around to having a bed ready for you can lead to a very late check in!

Liked: One of the greatest hostels I've been in! Clean, modern bathrooms, nice colorful rooms, a terrace where you can relax and meet the other people (part shady and part sunny so whichever you like). Very nice building, good location. The owner Mike is really helpful and funny. It's in one word fantastic!

Liked: It is in a beautifully renovated building and all the amenities are new. The bathrooms felt like hotel bathrooms. The owner Mike is very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: It was a very noisey hostel. At night you can hear every door close, every toilet flush and pretty much all conversations. If you are a single traveller who doesnt mind being woken up then I would recommend this hostel. If you like your sleep then dont stay here. Also there is no where to leave any valuables, maybe Mike should put some lockers in the rooms as there is plenty of space for them.

Liked: We LOVED mike! He knows how to make someone feel welcome! He´s so lovely and overwelmed with his new exciting hostel that we just wanted to help him all the time! If he´s not answering the door with a smile at terrible hours, then he´s ferociously cleaning the bathrooms and making ´rocking´conversations! We miss it already.. Thank you mike! Good luck with the Future of Gringo Rincon!

Disliked: IT¨S A TRAP! You´ll end up staying way too long hahah (because you dont want to leave...)

Liked: The bedrooms are spacious, the showers are hot and there is a nice terrace on the roof to sit, relax and enjoy the sun. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. Mike, the owner, is a definite positive. Always smiling, always willing to help and makes you feel very welcome.

Disliked: There are only two showers so sometimes you have to wait... but it's not that bad.

Liked: Brand New Hostel. Immaculately clean. Hot Showers ALWAYS. Comfy beds with sheet, duvet and blanket. Decent sized fully equipped immaculately clean kitchen area. As one of the first guests we got to have a peek in all the dorm rooms. ALL of them are finished to the highest standard. Lovely roof top terrace with loungers. Washing Machine - no extortionate charges for laundry! The FRIENDLIEST owners in Sucre who will do anything to improve the quality of your visit. Excellent location only two blocks from the main plaza. If you are a backpacker in Sucre you must stay here.

Disliked: Nothing. There is no internet here (They are tryiong to get it) but there are several internet cafes offering internet for 2 bolivianos an hour which is peanuts.
