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 =)
It was ok. A little sketchy. Would stay again if it was cheapest.
Great place if you like to party (every night!) You have to be able to sleep with noises as the music in the bar turns off late (3am or so) and you can hear it in some dorms. But except that it was a nice place to stay. Great food in the bar and nice breakfast included.
Good size rooms. Bar is fun. Wifi is rubbish. Sin e.
Well where do you start, it seems the WILD ROVER chain has got its operation well and truly sorted out! Party hostel, wicked food, great bar and staff. And the table tennis arena is on par with wimbledon centre court! Its another vortex tho so be ready to book 3-4 days and end up being there for 9-12days or even other side off the bar and working there. Meet so many wicked backpackers that become instant friends and made so many great memories. Wild Rover your on the money!
We stayed here twice, the first time for 2 nights and the second for 1, neither time did we end up in the rooms that we had booked and the second time we were charged the higher price. It's the type of place that you arrive to find someone vomiting in your bathroom at 3 in the afternoon and the light gets switched on at 3am but if you know what you're signing up for the location is excellent and the atmosphere and food in the bar is great. Wifi is terrible, can't cope with the volume of users.
Fine hostel, the staff were very patient and helpful. Beds are good, two types of jam with your bread un the morning (bit of a plus). Bar is good fun, but also quiet enough if you need to sleep - for the early morning treks.
Pretty good party hostel. The bar in the hostel is hopping every night.
Overall a great hostel (as expected by Wild Rover). Biggest "issue" is that the WiFi is completely unreliable. I stayed in total 4 nights. There was not a single day where is worked without issues.
