    Hi Cro,

    'I hope it will be a success' is better.

    Sometimes, what we are saying is enough for our interlocutor to understand us:

    I hope she will come. [talking about a future event]
    I hope she would come (if I asked her). [implied meaning]

    I am not a teacher.

    I hope it will be a success, present tense.
    I hoped it would be a success, past tense.

    I hope she will come, present tense,
    I hoped she would come, past tense.
