Honestly, the staff is what makes this place great. Without them it's a mediocre party hostel. Water often goes cold in shower after 1 min, or stops altogether. You cannot charge phones or use any electrical outlets in your room as they do not work. There are small charging lockers though, so make sure you have a small lock to lock your electronics up. My blanket and mattress had a lot of thick crusty red/brown stuff all over it. The bathrooms are constantly cleaned though which is nice.

Definitely a party hostel; that said the beds are comfy and most of the rooms are far enough away from the night bar you can sleep. Showers are pretty good, bar prices are reasonable. Pool is nice to chill around with a spare day. Overall would recommend.

This is a GREAT hostel. Good food, cheap drinks & a pool. It attracts all the best people and the staff are like a big family. Big thanks to Pipa (Hollllaaaaaaaa), Emma, Maintenance (Wi Wi and Pedro) Andrea, Titi and the rest of the gang for the parties & the memories (not the hangovers!) Big love to all X

This is the way a hostel should be. Great parties, but also good sleep if you had to wake up at 3 am for a tour. We had a private room and the facilities were superb. Food is good and quite cheap for the other options you can find nearby, same with booze. The service is wonderful! From workers to volunteers they all make this run in perfect conditions. The volunteers were quite hungover in the mornings tho still chatty, friendly and very helpful. Cleaning just A++.

Staff made up a slightly overwhelming majority of the people staying at wild rover. Most were very friendly, but it still had a little bit of a cliquey vibe. On my last night there, one of the staff I'd never met barged into our room when we were asleep offering free shots and were incredibly resistant to leave (we had to be up at 2 am for a trek). Great facility though, with comfortable beds nice showers and a nice pool/bar area.

Great party hostel with a lively bar and comfy chill out area. Rooms are really clean and the bed was one of the comfiest I've slept in in Peru. Rooms are located away from the bar so it's not too noisy at night.

A very clean, secure and pleasant stay, ended up extending the stay twice, once for more partying, and then following 2 days due to getting sick from street food. Either way I was very happy to stay here. Only negative is if you have trouble sleeping (which I dont) you may wish to stay out of a 20 man dorm as many people begin the Colca tours at 3am, and the bar closes at 12 / 1am. Aside from that, the pool is a little cold but very welcome if you have been sunbathing.
