Kultur Berlin Sep 30, 2016
Kultur Berlin is an institution!
Sucre is a grandiose city with fantastic Spanish style architecture and great surrounding. I was very surprised that roads are not better, but Sucre is in the middle of the mountains and probably costs arm and the leg to build anything in this area… We were coming from Potosi area and arrived to the city’s bus station in the afternoon. We did not have anything lined up, but I checked the possibilities for hostels and found few places that had some openings. That weekend, town was celebrating some important day and there were parades all around the square. It continued for the next day too, with even more parades (looks like there are many military schools in the area) and many streets closed for food vendors and festival goers.
Bus station did not promise much, very dirty, dark and ugly, in the sharp contrast to the city. We took the cab as soon as we saw one and went towards some hostel that we thought that it was alright. When we got there, we looked around and did not get any good vibes so we decided to look for Kultur Berlin.
Kultur is couple blocks uphill from the main square in very picturesque area of the town. The main building if the hostel has fantastic courtyard with the balconies overlooking the tables and the restaurant. This building was restored by the hostel and some kind of culture fond from Germany. They did amazing job. Adjacent to this building, there are few more modern buildings in the back. We went for the private penthouse that had great views and all luxuries for the price of hostel. Reception is placed in the room next to the door so sometimes security is not that great, but everyone inside the hostel has the bracelet, and at night they have security guard.
There is a very good bar at the hostels front that faces the street and outsiders are permitted to go inside and enjoy drinks and food. Kitchen in hostel makes food a-la carte and they also prepare fantastic breakfast. It is honestly one of the best breakfasts in hostels that I have ever experienced. Everything is very good, tasty and fresh.
Our room was really good, excellent bed, spotless and modern bathroom, large windows that lets you enjoy the sun and the view… Everything was just right. Internet was not that good in the room, but it was much better to go downstairs and enjoy in the yard and cold beer… The yard is surrounded with the kitchen, very nice bathrooms and very large space that looks like club. They did organize some kind of party during the fiesta, with lots of balloons, some nice music and lots of dancing and performing. Looks like they have some kind of local dancing group that includes few people that work for the hostel. They did some cool dancing. Of course, policy of quietness after 11pm was not enforced that night :).
Behind the reception there is a large storage area and you can leave your stuff if you are leaving the hostel at night or after the check-out area. This hostel is really good and warmly recommended.
