I loved the irish bar of this hostel, and the karaoke night was so much fun! Although the breakfast could be WAY better, is basically bread and milk. And the rooms could have more plugins to charge devices. Overall a good hostel
Best Party hostel ever. Thanks to Liz, the awesome front desk girl, she was extremely helpful!
We stayed in all 3 Wild Rovers and liked them all but Cusco was definitely our favourite. Big beds with actual duvets (rare in South America even in the colder climates) and out hot water ALWAYS worked. Danny, the bar manager, especially made our stay great so thanks to him from the four kiwi girls. The athmosphere was really good when we wanted to party, and our room was quiet enough when we wanted to have a night in.
best place ever for party and making friends!
I was unfortunately robbed whilst staying in Cusco. I found the staff to be really really unhelpful and even sent me to the wrong police station!! The atmosphere wasnt great for a party hostel, full of cliques. We moved hostels and much preferred the second. Private rooms walked straight out to the bar area. Not ideal.
This is a real party hostel so if ur looking for a good night every night this is the place to be!! Also has a good agency within the hostel to book trips to Machu Picchu and all other trips in Cusco. Would definitely stay here again!!
Wild time indeed , great party hostel ,great staff amazing time I shall be back
The staff weren't too friendly nor helpful. The rooms were dirty and not in great shape.
Really fun hostel, met lots of great people. Beds were comfy and rooms clean. Staff were all very helpful. I did think it was a bit strange that you aren't given a key for your dorm, so really anyone can just walk in! But overall great hostel with a fun atmosphere.
Hostel well located, good clean, and good service, I just think they should put more outlets to charge cell phones, tablets, etc, because the rooms only have one, and I was already in bed Hostels that each possessed her, and for those who do not like to party every day, this hostel has parties every day, and in some rooms it is possible to listen to the noise from the bar. (In my case gave up listening to the whole party), but other than that, the hostel is good.
Awesome place, visited all three wild rover's, and got my free t-shirt haha, fun place, definitely get to meet a bunch of different people from everywhere in these huge hostels and they always have something to do every night. Definitely worth a stay, in every city they're located
Wild rover was a quality experience! For those traveling and looking to have a good time, spend a few nights at the wild rover. The rooms are spacious and the bar is massive. Located right in the center of cusco, it is quite convenient to get around.
You can't find a better hostel in Cusco. There's always something going on in the bar from quiz night to open mic to a full on dance party on the bar. The comfort and location of the rooms still allow for a good nights rest and the staff is killer :)
Stayed here for five nights in total! Great hostel, it's a non stop party! Met loads of really lovely people and the bar is great craic. We left our bags here when doing the Inca trail which was a great help. Would recommend this hostel, only thing is that if you want a decent nights sleep this is not the hostel for you, very noisy! And only other negative was the showers were generally cold, only had one hot shower the five nights we were there!
Really fun hostel super fun bar staff. It's busy and can have a great night out but dorms aren't too noisy so ok if u need to get up early for a trip :) rooms ok pretty clean beds comfy. Shower so so has been nice and hot but pretty cold too. Bar is good, happy hour 7-10 and food is a nice change from Peruvian restaurants - shepherds pie is the one :) everything is close by. Wifi ok in common areas, not in the rooms, one of the guys at the travel desk is super rude and unhelpful. Fun stay
I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone thats looking for a good fun time in cusco! Theres always something to do and you meet great people!
The staff seem to be anyone that wants to work behind the bar and some put their own drinking above the customers. That's not to say all staff are like that though, just a couple. Really did appreciate the lockers with chargers - massive plus.
Stayed here for a week, awesome bar staff and the friendliest cleaners I have ever met in a hostal! Hot showers, private bathrooms in all the dorms, amazing food. Different themed nights with all the staff involved and getting the party started. (Also, best music out of the 3 hostals!) Loved all the bar staff a ton!! My only regret was not having the chance to say goodbye to everyone before I left! Also had health issues and reception organised everything for me with no fuss and no complaints =)
