First and last time I'll go to a party hostel.


Its a great party hostel, all the staff is very helpful specially Diego!! If you want to met new people its going to be perfect for you, if you want to rest remember its a party hostel!


Nice hostel with good atmosphere and nice bar. If you like to party it's a good hostel to stay with. If you're going on a trek and need to sleep before you get up at half past four its way to noisy.


Great social atmosphere! Very easy to meet other travelers and there's always some sort of party or gathering every night. It's in the same vicinity as the other main hostels and has a good restaurant/bar. Only main downside is that the wifi can be spotty occasionally.


I had such a great stay at Wild Rover! Not only was it an absolute blast but it was also very clean, great wifi, good food and the best staff! As soon as I came in the reception was so friendly and helpful, immediately making me feel comfortable and as at home as I could while in Cusco. Diego and Jorge went above and beyond to make my stay the best it could be. I would highly recommend this hostel to any traveler, it will make your experience in Cusco that much more fun!

Sometimes the internet is not available at the room. But so far this hostel is splendid. Good atmosphere for traveller and people and staff was also friendly


The bar is fantastic, with a lot of food options and good beer. The bed is not comfortable, the room that I was is not so clean and anyone can enter in your room... The door of dormitories are always open, so it is not so safety. The staff are fantastic and always try to help.


Good place to go to party for a few days but the bar is pretty expensive for drinks and food. Sometimes the party felt a bit forced and immature as well (people standing on the bar screaming 'wooo yeah wild rover' whereas certain other party hostels are a bit more natural. Easy atmosphere to meet people and very comfy beds


Party place - really fun


The best thing about the wild rover in la Paz was the security guard Joseph. The majority of the staff were pretty shocking. The wild rover in la Paz is in a different league.


Comfiest beds and the most fun hostel in Cusco! Definitely stay if you're looking to have a good time and meet like-minded travellers :) !!!


Was unimpressed with the facilities cleanliness and all around vibe of the hostel. Would not recommend it to anyone.


This place is really good to meet other travelers! It's definitely a party hostel, a lil bit too noisy sometimes, better go somewhere else if you look for tranquility! Friendly staff.


Pretty grim hostel unless you're there to party - for which it's ideal. Noisy, dark and dingey dorms but great bar at night, decent food and cheap drinks. Not enough plug sockets in dorms but lockers with sockets and wifi in common area compensates if you have two padlocks. Night time atmosphere brilliant in the bar.


Want a party? Come here. Want to sleep? Go somewhere else. Overall: good food, people, beds, facilities. An awesome place to meet awesome people.


What a great place to stay. If u want, friendly staff, great atmosphere & a place to meet & party with fellow travelers, this is the place to stay. Great facilities, security & storage & a fantastic location. All I can say is FUN, FUN, FUN!!

Had a great time here. The Rover gets a bad rap here but it's actually brilliant. I stayed in a 6-bed girls-only dorm and had no problems with noise or whatever. The bar is excellent craic. Thought Jack (the manager) was a total pro and he went to the ends of the earth to get us to the airport on a No-Car-Day in La Paz. Reception staff sometimes misinformed. Bar staff are brilliant. Really clean place. Hot showers. Breakfast goes late. Late check out. Comfortable beds. Can't go wrong


Great hostel. The 4 bed dorm was very spacious and it was great to have a big en suite bathroom with hot shower.


Really good hostel! The bar inside is incredible and the parties that happen every day are great! Also have good food and cold beer for a reasanoble price. When we arrive, our bedroom was not smelling good, we told them and they quicly moved us for another room bigger than the one we originally paid. Really good and atencious staff. The only two bad things: the eletrical outlets are rare (just one in a room of six people, impossible to charge the phone during night) and no wifi in the bedroons.


Great location a few blocks from the main square in Cusco. If you've stayed at wild rover before than you know what to expect- partying, hot showers and comfortable beds. Not quite as crazy as Wild Rover La Paz though and the staff are a bit "clicky" apart from that a great place to stay.
