While the owners are very friendly, and even provided us with an introduction to, and a map of Sucre, this guest house is lacking in other areas. Santa Cecilia advertises free wifi, however, when it is working it is painfully slow such that it is better to pay to use internet elsewhere. Also advertised is a breakfast included in the...

This is my second time staying at Santa Cecilia, and I am so impressed. The hostel is clean and close to both the plaza and the Recoleta. Hot water, good tv and wifi, and simple but tasty breakfast. But the true gem is the family running Santa Cecilia - they are so welcoming and friendly, willing to help out in...

This place was the best place which we stayed in Bolivia. First night in Sucre, we stayed in a very unpleasant place which was not much cheaper than Santa Cecilia. On our second day we moved to this place and we were planning to spend only 1 more night in Sucre but after staying in this place, we changed our...

Stayed here for one night. Despite booking three months in advance they got our booking wrong. It had comfortable beds. And a convenient location close to the main square, but hot water was very limited. The breakfast was basic.

To be honest I've seen a lot of hostels in the past year but this one tops it all! We arrived super early in the morning at 5am from Uyuni and only had reservation for the upcoming night. The owner let us in that early in the morning, gave us a room (not the one we had booked as it...

We loved the beautiful town of Sucre for many reasons--one of which was this lovely guesthouse. We were visiting at the time of riots in Potosi. Departing buses to go anywhere were cancelled and schedules were uncertain. We couldn't have been happier with our experience at Santa Cecilia. We were treated like family in so many ways--Phone calls to bus...

We loved staying here. It was really nice, we had a huge room with a big bed and ensuite, proper shower with hot water. The building has thick walls so its nice and quiet in the night. Breakfast is simple, hot drink, yoghurt and bread and jam but theres a great kitchen for cooking for yourself. Theres a small patio...

The hotel is located couple of blocks from the central square of Sucre and very close to many bars and restaurants. The owner of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The room was OK especially considering the price paid. Simple breakfast, slow wi-fi.

Nice place. Simple breakfast of yoghurt and bread. Comfortable rooms, although one had a strong mould smell. Hosts were very friendly, although when we first turned up, they weren't until they realised we had a reservation. I'd stay here again
