We spent almost two weeks here whilst we learnt Spanish and it was a pleasant place to stay. Our room was huge! It was cleaned every couple of days, which seems rare for Hostels. The bathroom was great with a good shower. The hosts were welcoming and gave us some great recommendations of where to eat. The only reason this...

We found this place to be great value for sucre. The rooms are clean and spacious and the kitchen is fine for cooking. The location is fairly central, no more than a 5 minute walk to the centre of Sucre. The only criticism was there was no soap in the bathrooms.

Almost the perfect hostel. Just the wifi is lacking, but that is a very common occurence in Bolivia. But clean, friendly, helpful and always hot water. Fluent in english, german, spanish and french. Very spacious rooms!

One of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. Only wish we could have stayed longer! The owners are absolutely charming and helpful. We had an early flight from Santa Cruz and spent most of the day in the large, spacious room. Small kitchen to cook in and enjoy on the sunny porch.

This hostel is BRILLIANT! (In my opinion!) excellent value, we paid £17 for a huge double room with ensuite bathroom and it has a lovely sunny terraced area upstairs and another one downstairs as well as a well-equipped, clean kitchen. In fact everywhere was clean the whole time, I loved it! We were given towels and toilet roll, a helpful...

We had a really lovely time our week in Sucre at the Dolce Vita. They don't try to do everything (no laundry service nor breakfast) but what they do do, they do well. The rooms were clean (and cleaned often), spacious, and everything had a new feel. Having traveled plenty of places that offer disappointing breakfasts, were perfectly fine enjoying...

I stayed there a few days and the room was very nice and the owners very helpful (full of tips to visit the city !!). The place itself is nice and quiet, not far from the main square and the market. Only "negative" thing : there was no breakfast included, but a kitchen could be used !

The hostel is in a good location in the city center. Very big double room with bathroom. The manager is really friendly and welcoming. Kitchen is well equipped and the balcony inside is very nice for enjoying your meal while meeting others. We kept on staying for a week.

The place is nice, but I would say is not the first choice for solo travellers - since meeting likeminded ppl is not too easy. They have nice environment, beautiful kitchen and helpful stuff. But they lack laundary, breakfast, tours and organisation or events. If you are a couple and want a quite time in Sucre this is your hostel....

We stayed at La Dolce Vita for 10 days and have nothing but praise for the accommodation and the family who run it. Jacqui gave us a map on arrival and pointed out both practical and tourist things we might want to know and was always willing to provide more information should we need it. The small kitchen and outside...
