Really good hostel. Good location, good food, good facilities. Proper shower and comfortable beds. Wifi is only in common areas and works well. Everynight something like beerpong, watching sport games or/free shots is organised. Good place to meet pleople. Rooms are not noisy, one night I went to bed at 10 and slept well.
Cool hostel. We stayed in a private room on the main floor it was quite noisy due to music from the bar and unfortunately we were too tired from our travels to participate but awesome place to party and meet people if that's your scene!
Location good, no kitchen but cheap enough bar where you can get food, Atmosphere in the bar at night is not the best, bar staff are clicky and hideous. Some of the blokes behind the bar have tops off and think they're cool but they,re not, especially one Aussie bloke who shouldn't have skipped leg day. Wild Rover La Paz way better
The staff are very cool people, the food is nice and their parties are awesome!!
Oh sweet sweet Wild Rover. I came for a day, but stayed for a week. It has an incredible party atmosphere. A shout out to Lui and Bridget, excellent staff members.
We stayed here before inca trail and planned to stay after but didn't due to the receptionist. She was so rude upon check in and didn't show us around or explain anything such as breakfast. On checkout she over charged us for our room and double for laundry. She got angry when we asked for a receipt and had to return money like it was our fault!
a good party hostel, nice and clean and good atmosphere
Literally the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The atmosphere was great for meeting people and there was never a dull moment. You may not sleep a lot with all the noice but do you even want to?! The correct answer is no! Because those memories you will be reminding on for life and there is always time to sleep.
Compete party hostel. Don't stay if you want any sleep but it's good fun and a great place to meet other people. Bathroom wasn't the cleanest and the wifi could be better but it's a fun spot.
Had the best time, the managers Adam, Brayden and James we really great and looked after everyone
Great hostel, has everything you could need in it and it is so much fun! Beds are comfy but it is loud in the rooms at night, amazing place to go to party but not good for a quiet night. Just wish there were outlets in the rooms and not just in the main area!
Crazy party hostel - great way to meet lots of cool people and you'll most probably getting drunk every night of your stay here. Don't get stuck for too long! I'd only spend about 3-4 days at a place like this. Don't make bookings through their tourism company, way overpriced and better options can be found in the town, in particular the main square. Great pub for sporting events and food in the bar is quite good!
If you want to party go to Wild rover. Everyone from other hostels around la Paz goes here to party. Decent food, comfy beds, good pool table
Definately a party hostel, had its ups and downs - but from a backpackers pov - good location, hot water, big beds, good enough breakfast so all in all good - the nightlife certainly dominates this place and youll meet some great people.
Staff were friendly and place is clean but there's still a lingering smell of alcohol in the dorm!! Can't be helped maybe but it was off putting! Also only 1 plug in entire 4 bed dorm and the door was extremely stiff so that had to put whole body into it to open it...not good when sharing a dorm at night! Think the dorms could do with a good overhaul! Bar is great craic but maybe not if you're trying to sleep ;)
We stayed at Wild Rover in Cusco for two nights before our Inca Trek and loved it so much we ended up booking another night after we got back! Beds are comfy, bathrooms are really clean, proper hot showers and free breakfast til 12pm. The bar is great, there's something going on pretty much every night and you're guaranteed a great night out! All of the staff are great, really helpful, especially the bar manager James, he's awesome! We've already booked into Wild Rover in La Paz! :)

I stayed at Wild Rover before and after my Salkantaytrek. I was in a 12 Dorm Mixed, which was really nice. Although it was the closest room to the bar it wasn't noisey at all. It was really clean,they had the best hot showers and breakfast was til 12pm, which was the best thing ever after a long night at the bar. The bar was really nice, also the staff there was awesome. Especially James, the bar manager. I enjoyed it a lot, I will definitely come back.

Definitely a party hostel, from the bar to the room! Usually, other party hostel I have stayed with maintain calm and silence in the room. But not this hostel. I have booked 16bed dorm for the first night and just realised that all guests will talk and drink and do other stuff in the room until 4am, and you are guaranteed not sleeping! The hostel seem allowing this, so no room at all for you to have a rest. And this happens every day. Wifi is unreliable. Not working in the room!
Great party hostel, the most fun we've had in a place on our whole trip! The staff are very funny and helpful especially Diego, and the bar is a great place to have fun at night. We went when it was the anniversary weekend and it was crazy! Also if you do have a night off its not that hard to get a decent nights sleep. Great hostel!
