The place is an old house with a really nice flowery patio. We had a spacious double room with private bathroom, with warm water.
Breakfast included with awesome fresh bread, eggs and yogurt.
The owners were really friendly (and that you can choose to speak english, german or spanish with them is also nice).
Good point for the book exchange : that's were I saw the most recent books during my trip in South America (various languages to choose from !).
The kitchen is quite small, without too much equipment but is enough to cook a small dinner.

It was a nice and small hostel in to the centre of Sucre. We had a twin room with nice breakfast (eggs, bread, yoghurt, marmalade and tea/coffee) and hot showers. The staff were friendly and helped us with everything we asked.

The hostel has a nice outdoor common place to chat and meet others.

It was adviced in our german guide book about Bolivia, as the owners are german.
We arrived around 21h, and only the guard was there, a yound bolivian.
We paid 140 bol for a matrimonial with private bathroom, and for this price the breakfast is included....except on sunday morning the guard told us: bad luck for us that were spending saturday night there. The room was old fashion-european style, directly as the street so we couldn't open the window, and the smell is the room was quite bad.
We changed hotel the day after for the Hostel Amigo, on the same street, that was not more comfortable but at least much cheaper !

In this house never deceives, the problem was that you did not say in advance that you wanted breakfast, and about the smell, it was becuase we changed the plumbing of the bath (sorry)and of course we are sorry about the inconvenience. I am happy you found something more to your liking in the other hostal.I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip through Bolivia.

Best regards
Normann

We left our luggage in the care of the security guard of the hotel yesterday (17 June 2007) as we were going to the Tarabuca Market and taking a night bus to Santa Cruz that evening.

When we returned to collect our luggage we paid for the hotel and then realised that one of our backpacks had disappeared. The staff member present told us that we had all our bags back and so requested that we needed to speak to the owner of the hotel since he speaks English.

We presume that the owner lives some distance away because we waited almost an hour before he arrived by which time we had missed our bus which we had already paid for. The owner told us that we had not left our bag in the hotel because that is what the security guard had told him and that we could have brought it to the market and lost it there. The bag is bright red weighs 8kg and had been packed in the morning with several items removed from it for use during the day. The bag was also padlocked before being handed to the guard we had the key with us and we did a full room check prior to leaving to ensure no items had been left behind. The owner insisted we open our large packs to prove to him that the missing bag was not inside.

The owner told us that it was ´impossible´ that the bag could have been taken from the hotel and that nothing had ever been taken from his place and that he fully trusts the man at security. The owner then went through the items that were taken and ridiculed us that no one would have any value for such personal items however we pointed out that the bag was padlocked. The total value in the bag adds to about 600$ but is more of personal value since a travel diary of 8months as well as personal gifts etc were taken.

Although the owner speaks very good English he refused to come to the police station with us and told us that the issue was between us and his security guard and he bore no responsibility. He continued to insist that the bag had been lost by us and the security guard told us that money and phone he left near the bags was not touched.

The owner continually said we should go to the police and report the items as ´lost´ we refused to accept that we had any negligence in the matter and that the items were left in the morning in the care of the hotel. Eventually we managed to file a report with the police that the bag was stolen from the hotel (accompanied by the security guard who said that we lost it).

In conclusion, we felt insulted by the owner of the hotel since we were not negligent and he failed to take any responsibility. He refused to assist in sorting the matter out in a helpful way given his language skills, he still charged us fully for our stay and did not even recompense the 25$ lost since we could no longer catch our night bus. At the end of the evening he watched us walk out of his hotel knowing that we would have to go and look for alternative accommodation without even an offer to put us up for the additional night we now had to stay in Sucre.
