Liked: Mike runs a fantastic, clean, friendly, social hostel which really is a home away from home for many travelers studying Spanish in Sucre. King size bunkets, always clean, fantastic rooftop patio to socialise and study on. Senora Cerveza right next door always has a large supply of cold beers ready to go! Great location just minutes walk from the town square and markets.

Disliked: The only complaint would be that they kitchen is a little small but this is only a minor inconvenience. This really is a safe, friendly, clean, communal hostel that is in a great location.

Liked: Comfy beds, large rooms and a friendly host definitely make this hostel good. Its close to the main plaza and within walking distance to any bar/restaurant/tourist attraction. And the price is right.

Disliked: No breakfast which is a shame but when you can get eggs/bread for next to nothing its not an issue. No lockers for valuables inside the hostel - but the coded door does make it secure.
