A place to never forget

Wasi Masi was an amazing place to stay. Not only do they serve you a good, hearty breakfast and a tasty lunch in the adjacent restaurant, they offer Spanish lessons for one hour a day when you book for five days or more, which is immensely helpful if you want to be able to have a half-decent conversation in Spanish with someone.

Although it is sometimes difficult to communicate with the staff - most do not speak English, and in Spanish they tend to mix in some Quechua - they are always friendly and helpful. Since this is a guesthouse, the whole family lives and works there, and their little kids are just a joy, not to mention their really nice dog and the family of cats and kittens.

Sometimes there's a day with heavy rain and the streets will turn into rivers, which is a great excuse to stay inside and watch one of the thousands of movies in the common room. This is Bolivia, so of course they're all pirated. On warm days the shaded courtyard is a great place to relax and socialize, play some games or have a drink. If you want to get some sun, the rooftop terrace is perfect for that.

I did not plan to stay so long in Sucre, but the five-night discount with breakfast, lunch and Spanish lessons was just too good to pass up. Having to take one hour a day out of my schedule meant I couldn't go on any full day trips, which was unfortunate, but there was plenty to do regardless. Staying for this long also meant I was here for Christmas, during which the staff invited everyone to participate in a Secret Santa event over Christmas dinner. On Christmas Eve all the gifts were exchanged between the guests as well as the family, and afterwards we all dug into a huge buffet of two turkeys, a ratatouille, meatballs, sausages and salad. That was definitely the best and biggest meal I had in Bolivia.

There are not many negatives to this place but one of them is definitely the dreadful wifi connection, which to be fair, is pretty typical of Bolivia. Some days it works, some days it doesn't, you can probably send messages to your friends but you can forget about watching videos. The location is quite central and it's not far to walk to the plaza, but that also means traffic is quite heavy on the street where the entrance to the hostel is. It is also very narrow, so you have to be very careful of cars whenever you enter or leave.

If you're in Sucre for a while, definitely consider staying here and practice your Spanish for a while, and even if you're only there for a few days, this hostel is an excellent choice.

This hostel was great and I'm glad I chose to stay here. They served an amazing breakfast of bread, butter, jam, fruit, and coffee/tea. The staff were very nice and the hostel itself was very clean. They also had a small guest kitchen and a restaurant. And during the evenings they even had a fire pit in the courtyard to sit next to and warm up. Great Place!

Comfortable quirky hostel in walking distance to main sights, markets, central square or short bus ride. Small kitchen but functional. Enjoyed our stay.

Nice outdoor space and common room, the dog and cat are full of personality, the double rooms are futons on the ground don´t expect a bed, bathrooms were clean and showers hot, we had our washing done there and I think they hand washed it because it wasn´t clean when it vame back.

Great staff, breakfast, restaurant (little), friendly people and activities organized by long staying guests. Nice place to stay in Sucre. Showers not a bit difficult to get warm but don't despair!

... time all tours to the Salar were cancelled. This was a serious problem to my plan! At the point I decided to cancel my Uyuni trip for another day I also learned that the Miners were on strike in Potosi. This is one of the biggest Silver mining areas in the world & the conditions the miners work in are worse that ours were 150 years ago. A strike here in Bolivia by the miner means roads are blocked & dynamite is set off rather regularly. The last big strike a ...
