It is a lovely courtyard hostel and it has a great book exchange. The room we stayed in was a bit strange. It had no storage facility (so when you unpacked, the room looked like a bomb site).
Welcome to WASI MASI GUEST HOUSE
My name is Roxana. Together with my son Antonio and our dog Balú we run a quiet, friendly guest house, which offers a relaxing atmosphere for your stay in the centre of Sucre, three blocks from the main square 'Plaza 25 de Mayo'.
It is a quiet house in the centre of the city of Sucre, just three blocks from the main plaza. All our rooms and apartments are situated around a colourful courtyard
with sun and shade. Above, there is a terrace overlooking the patio where you can take the sun or view the mountains surrounding the city. We have a library with a collection of around 1000 books, probably the best book exchange in Sucre, and a TV room with a collection of DVDs. We also have free wi-fi.
Whether you need a single, twin, double or triple room with shared or private bathroom - we can accommodate you. We also have a ten bed dormitory with big beds and each of them has its own locker and lamp. Our rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious.
If you prefer more privacy, why not stay in the latest apartments at Wasi Masi each with their own rustic Mediterranean atmosphere. They are full of light and have their own balconies, Cable TV, and a fully equipped shared kitchen. (Maximum 4 people)
We offer following services for free:
* Hot, gas powered showers 24/7
* Towels, Toilet paper
* 24h Check in
* Guest kitchen
* Cable TV and DVD collection
* Special prices for long stays
Also, we will do your laundry at reasonable rates (only 8bs per kg).
You can also learn Spanish at the hostel! We have our own native ´profesor´ with over 11 years experience teaching Spanish. He is very professional yet cheaper than most of the schools in Sucre.
We have also a small restaurant which is open from 8 am to 2 pm. At lunchtime we serve a traditional, tasty Bolivian ´menu del dia´. This consists of 3 courses, including a dessert and refreshing drink for only 14 bs.
If there's anything else you need, just ask. All our staff are friendly and can offer tourist information and advice.
We look forward to welcoming you to Wasi Masi and our World Heritage city.
Roxana and family

It is a lovely courtyard hostel and it has a great book exchange. The room we stayed in was a bit strange. It had no storage facility (so when you unpacked, the room looked like a bomb site). The bathroom was a bit damp smelling and the bed was on the floor (but my girlfriend and I both had an uninterrupted solid night's sleep all three nights we stayed).
The shower was amazing - powerful and hot. They also clean your room every day.
The breakfast was poor. The best thing was the coffee, which was so-so. Bread, butter and jam is not what I call breakfast, but it is actually a very common breakfast for budget accommodation in South America, so we were not really that surprised.
Another issue we had was that the noise curfew of 10pm was not observed by the younger guests or enforced by the staff (in fact some foreign staff participated in the revelry outside our room until the early hours).
Basically, it is an OK place, better than a lot of hostels, but not outstanding. It is pretty cheap, so all in all you get a little bit more than you pay for.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The hostel was a short distance from the city centre making for a peaceful stay. The courtyard was a good pace to meet people and relax.
