Wild rover hostels are great, such a Fun atmosphere and the staff are great for the most part, unfortunately we did find the staff at front desk alittle rude but the bar staff were great besides one incident with a drunk bar tender causing a scene. It's excellent value for money and in such a good location! I would recommend it to all my friends.

Lovely bar, shame about the drunk bar tenders. Food was very good value and the rooms were nice and spacious. Hot shower was great.

Party hostel. Great fun and I met many other fun people. Not ideal if you want to rest after a trek. Otherwise great! Lively bar. Bar manager (Thiago) has an over inflated ego, but aside from that good bar. Showers mediocre. Toilets blocked frequently. Better than Arequipa WR, but not as nice as la Paz WR.

The environment was awesome, and it was great to have a bar/restaurant in the hostel. The beds weren't made when we arrived even though it was well after 3 pm. It really grossed me out that they only changed the sheets and not the comforter...I've seen what people do on hostel beds. :/ I also had to ask for a pillowcase. They also cleaned the bathrooms everyday from around 8 am to 10am which is maybe the most inconvenient time ever to clean bathrooms.

All of the reviews referencing Wild Rover as "The Party Hostel" are completely accurate. There is something going on every night, and people come from throughout the city to start or finish the night at the Irish bar here.

Bit grossed out to see cleaning lady remake a used bed with dirty sheets for a new person on TWO occasions. Pretty much the most basic thing you expect from a hostel! Also was told to move rooms yet my old bed was not remade and no one slept in it. A bit inconvenient and disorganised. Also wanted to book another night but was told to 'book online' by the lady at reception at 8pm. Guy is super nice though. Good location etc and enjoyed my stay however some improvements could really be made.

this hostel was awesome! happy hour specials are some of the cheapest youll find in cusco. the staff was awesome and the party scene was great. right downtown walking distance to everything you need. not a bad thing to say

I understand this is a party hostel & that is okay. What is not okay is the hostel staff getting everyone so drunk they don't know what they're doing. One night 2 people got it on in my dorm very loud & the girl didn't even know who she was. Later the guy managed to use the bathroom on me, my bed, my clothes & all over the dorm. Another night a guy was throwing up off his top bunk. They get people drunk to just keep spending money, it's not cool. Oh & the free breakfast and WiFi are horrible.

Party hostel at it's best.

The hostel is alright, but their wifi absolutely SUCKS. What's worse, the staff at the reception just brushed me off when I asked what was wrong with the wifi, but never fixed the problem for the 5 days I was there. They have 3 computers for guests, of which only 1 worked properly--the others were either too slow or simply froze. This meant long waits just to go online for something as basic as checking my emai. Again, the hostel is fine, but come on Wild Rover, it's 2015-get some real internet!

Best wild rover out of all of the 3 best wifi(when you can connect) staff are really nice and always helpful. The foodies the best out of all the WR, spicy chicken curry tasty. Rooms are standard large lockers 16 bed no plugs in room just in reception with lockers showers are hot and powerful. Not far from main sq and great nights out. Don't have to party if you don't want to. Overall great

Wild Rover is a party hostel! If you don't like this then maybe it's not for you. We loved it, you could get stuck in on party nights but the smaller dorms were dark and quiet enough for a night's sleep if you wanted.

Big shout out to the maintenance staff, working day and night to keep this hostel clean despite the incredible amount of people partying all the time! Beds are very comfy, showers are amazing and always hot. The restaurant serves very good food and the staff is very friendly. Computers available for use, nice breakfast. Basically, you could easily spend your whole stay in cusco without leaving the hostel if thats what you wanted..

Great party hostel, if thats what youre looking for. you have cheaper options in Cusco, but I totally recommend spend at least one night in this hostel

Not as good as La Paz (mainly due to ensuite bathrooms being a bit rough). Wifi is not that good - but the place is a fairly safe bet. Backpack sized lockers in room.

I've stayed at both la paz and cusco now and although I couldn't stay in either more then a few days, I really enjoy the party atmosphere for a short period. bar staff here are great and are really open to include anyone in the fun. wifi is terrible but does mean u have to talk to other people. cinema room has no sound proofing so can't hear the movies over the sound of the kitchen and bar.
