I've stayed at wild rovers before so had high hopes. Staff came across a little on the unfriendly side, little or no conversation. I stars when it was karaoke night and the noise was so loud could not sleep at all. Great location and hot showers made it a good stay


Great hostel! Perfect location, and great vibe. The pool and bar areas make it easy to meet people! Rooms aren't locked, but front door is monitored all day, and there are lockers and a storage room. I'd def stay here again!


Nice hostel like all wild rovers, but I got a really bad mattress and if u are more than 1,6 m is impossible to take a shower.. they are so small..


10 bed dorm was very spacious and their promise of huge beds is true. showers werent really hot. it was lukuwarm at best


The rooms are a bit noisy during the night and the staff wasn't very helpful (except for the people at the bar at night, they're great!)


At first i thought it was strange to not have locks on the dorm room doors but, after seeing how entry works and the semi "checkpoints" you go through to get in. my mind was put to ease. Awesome hostel, great party on the weekends!


we came in low season so its hard to inagine what its like when full!! the bar got graduly quieter per evening... but was still a nice atmospher. pool area ok but food and wter massivly over priced!! 5minutes walk to market which is fantastic also 5 minutes to tge park only open weekends though!!!


Hostel was a great location, right by main square. Great place to meet other Backpackers. Is a party hostel but it's huge so if you want to escape the noise there's lots of places to go. No kitchen but cheap local food if you walk out of the tourist area. Wi-Fi is alright staff friendly. I had a great time wish I could have stayed longer


bar staff does not speak Spanish, and the pool is smaller in real life than it appears in the pictures, but great and central place to hang out with good bar


A friendly and nice place to stay in Arequipa - and to meet other travellers.
