La Escondida ("the hideaway" in Spanish) lives up to its name, More of a hotel than a hostel but at hostel prices. The location is about as central as you can get (opposite the central market), yet secluded and quiet due to its recessed position.
A great respite for tired travelers, and undoubtedly the best place I have stayed in South America, a view also expressed by quite few of the people I met here, many of whom including myself, stayed much longer than planned!
The manageress and staff are are very friendly, helpful and genuine. The rooms (breakfast included) are a home from home, flat screen TV, hot shower, well furnished, comfy beds, and are cleaned daily. The communal kitchen, dining room and cozy courtyard make for easy socializing.
The hostel itself is very secure, hosts a fast Internet connection and seems to be a 5 minute walk from all the best restaurants bars and parks. Highly recommended!!

We planned to stay 2-3 days in Sucre and ended up spending a week here. A friend recommended this place and looking at the facilities and friendly staff, she was more than right! It is more a hotel than a hostel really.

Compared to prices set by the other more known fancy "hostels", this one was way cheaper. It has a lovely patio and basic breakfast is included. The rooms are cleaned up and bed done every day even if leaving late. There is wifi working reasonably well for Bolivia although not the fastest of course. However, the computer in the breakfast room has a very fast connection.

The girl at reception also recommended some local places which were very cheap, local and with good food (such as La Quimba with a cultural and music vibe incl. live concerts on certain nights).

We definitely recommend this place for all tired travelers who want to have a break in a pleasant place and lovely town. It is also perfectly located next to the central market where fresh juices await you for 10 BOB and the best choripan at 7 Lunares in the market too.

Room Tip: The matrimonial bed is not that large so if you want to have more space, you're better off taking a twin.

We are traveling for almost five months through south America and this hostel was definitely the best one!! Very clean, cozy, very nice and friendly staff and the perfect place to stay in front of the mercado. It's including breakfast and has a kitchen as well. They have a very cozy courtyard to relax! It is all you need! And a lot of the people we spoke to stayed way longer then planned. Just perfect!
