If you are looking to have great time and meet people this is great place to stay. The location is great and hostel bar/restaurant has always something going on.


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.


Party hostel, fun if you're are going with a group of friends, but not if you're looking for a more chillout time


This is exactly what the other reviews say....a party hostel. The staff were helpful and friendly and would always help wherever they could. Clean and tidy, hot water was a bit hit and miss and the wifi was terrible! I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it


Definition of a party hostel


The best two weeks of my life. A terrific party hostel with an unbelievable atmosphere. The staff were great and I made friends for life. Ideal location, cheap food/booze and a decent ping-pong table. The only downside was the wifi but I was too busy getting drunk to use it anyway! Strongly recommend to young travellers.


Wifi is terrible, the cleaning is not so good, there is no much interaction between the staff and the backpackers. Apart from that the atmosphere is excellent, the parties are awesome.


Awesome party hostel in the city center.


The reception staff were always helpful. The bar and staff were amazing!!! St Patrick's day at this hostel was one of the funnest days. The wifi could be better but that's standard. Thank you wild rover cusco.


Spent one night here after the Inca trail. Lots of ignorant people, turning lights on at 2 am and deciding to do coke and have a party in the room despite people trying to sleep. The courtyard is supposed to be a quiet zone after 10 but security does nothing to enforce this. Don't expect any sleep at this place. Would not recommend, many better options in Cusco.


Terrible wifi. Lives up to the it's name of party hostel - personally wasn't for me as the 'party' came across as forced. Staff were rude and got drunk during the day - then decided to go through everyone's rooms. Unorganised and didn't know I was even booked in. 24 hour reception is good. Location was good. Lockers and safe to keep things when I wasn't there.


Wild Rover is a party hostel, and partying is the reason I chose Wild Rover over any other hostels in Cuzco. There is an awesome Irish bar to coop yourself in with the staff being fellow travellers that couldn´t resist leaving the party atmosphere. The beds are good, the bathrooms are good with hot showers, the food they serve at the bar is well priced too. Stay at Wild Rover if you wish to dance on the bar, drink a lot of alcohol, and party with fellow travellers.


good location, great for a party hostel!! just stay before the inca trail.not after when your shattered!!!
