Great hostels, really comfy clean beds, nice atmosphere and fun nights at the bar every night. Food could be better and would of been nice if the pool was clean. Definitely worth a visit!


!!!BED BUGS!!! lots of noice, not possible to sleep, drunk young people when you wake up in the morning! Definitively not a good place, probably the worst I have ever seen.


nice hostel but they close everything pretty early and feels like they t¡think of guests as children sometimes but except for that, quite a nice and super safe place.


Its a wild rover so good for parties! Not that clean, you can't use the pool so ignore that photo they have of everyone round the pool. Doesn't happen. Very quiet in the day but good fun at night. No hot water sometimes. Reception staff not great, bar staff good though. Its cheap and you get what you pay for. Would stay here again cause Arequipa is pretty quiet despite what people try and say


Totally fine hostel in a good location. A good place to meet people. Bar staff are a bit weird, slapping each other with leather belts?! Reception staff not overly helpful or friendly.


Great party hostel in Arequipa with something going on every day & night. Fun bar staff who will take you out to nearby clubs after the hostel bar closes at 1am. Very central location (2 blocks from Plaza de Armas) and close to many restaurants. Hostel restaurant is excellent (Friday & Saturday are delicious T-bone steak nights!). It is easy to stay a few nights longer (to cure your hangover..) The big dorms are right above the club so if you're looking for some sleep, ask for a room in the back


Amazing hostel with great staff. I had the chance to visit all three Wild Rover hostels and the atmosphere in Arequipa is by far the best. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. Apart from Arequipa being a really nice city to visit, the sun is infinitely shining which makes hanging by the pool bar an excellent way to relax and meet new people. Special shout out to the awesome Sandra, Teo, Talia, Laura, Andrea and Will for making sure I had the best time. See you soon!

A fun hostel in Arequipa. Only stayed for a night, but staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere. Hot showers but spotty wifi.


IT IS A PARTY PLACE. If you are ok with lots of drunk people getting in the room in the middle of the night everyday (or if you will be one of then) than it is just awesome,. The bad thing was the breakfast. I arrived there at 10:20 (it closes at 11) and the lady was completely rude when I asked for bead because there were none on the basket. She pretended to ignore me. When she finally answered us she just said so it was over the bread, if we wanted breakfast we should wake up early.


We only stayed one night but the hostel has great facilities, good menu and was lots of fun!


Fab stay at Wild Rover! Not recommended if you want an early night but really good fun!


Very fun party hostel. The staff tries really hard to make sure everyone is having fun. They took us all out to a club and made sure everyone got home safely too. If you want to have a good time and don't need much sleep, I would definitely recommend this hostel.


Was only supposed to stay here for 1 night but ended up extending my stay for longer. Awesome hostel with good facilities, and the staff from reception to the bars & management make the stay that much better! So friendly and polite and will do anything they can to help you out!

Nice place - pretty typical large backpacker place but what stood out for us was the staff who were friendly and helpful. Even asked if we wanted to use the showers when we returned from a trip only to pick up our bags.


Perfect place for a nice party. Beds are comfy but staff is every now and then very grumpy and doesn't seem to do everything posible to make your stay as perfect as possible.

Great hostel when looking for a party, and even if not the beds are fantastic enough to make the stay worth it! Comfy duvets and the rooms stay relatively warm despite the frigid cold outside. Only complaints are spotty hot water in the showers and staff said they would help make sure I wake up for a flight but then didn't. Couldn't ask for a better location though!


Good bar for meeting other travellers, always something going on. Beds were comfortable, but hot water supply was patchy. Close to the main square and possible to book tours through the hostel. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.


There is no hot shower!! freezing. But otherwise, its well situated, nice bar, pool. Rooms are clean.


wicked plae the staff make it!


Showers were cold
