Greeeattt hostel !!!!!! I loved it. Great location between Plaza de las Armas and San Pedro Market (don't miss it). The staff is amazing and if you like to party, it is the place to be! Party every night at the bar which great themes and cheap drinks ! Ping pong table, pool table, breakfast until 12 !!!! And the rooms are clean, the bathroom was in the dorm (8 bed dorm). They keep your bag for free to go to Macchu Picchu. I definitely recommend this hostel !


This was the wild rover we were least impressed by.... we honestly only stayed here for the t-shirt! Felt dated and worn. No real atmosphere during our stay there and the bar staff couldn't have cared less about us. Didn't love it... I'm sure there are better hostels out there.


Best party hostel in Peru by far. Great atmosphere, great people, great bar.


Well, the staff from another country just said to me that she was too drunk justifying the reason she opened my locker and grabbed my ipod, earphones, charger, my iphone charger too. That is it! She said looking at me without any problem and the reception didn't make nothing about just checked on the camera to see who was the person who grabbed my stuff - the girl. Another day I dropped my wallet and the security gave me back after 3 minutes without any money saying that wasnt him. Awful place


Best hostel we have stayed at, had a really good vibe. The bar staff were super friendly and hilarious. Had some really good nights here. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are clean with hot water. Also the food is pretty good. We definitely recommend this hostel was good fun


Good party vibes, close to centre of town, good security, very friendly staff. Can get a few hours of shut eye if needed.


Biggest problem was the fitted sheets not fitting the mattress- uncomfortable and unhygienic when you find yourself on the bare mattress. I left my bags briefly and although they gave me a tag it wasn't used and they freely let me into the overcrowded storage room without any supervision. However, staff were cool, location is great, good wifi and nice shower. As with all big party hostels, it was a bit intimidating as a solo traveller and lacked a friendly atmosphere. Pariwana was better.


The pub is amazing.


Great party hostel... Big dorms so if you need a good sleep would recommend getting a private room or a smaller dorm. Breakfast is average but great paid options available. No kitchen :-( comfy beds but sheets kept falling off, not just my bed but almost everyone in the room was sheetless by the morning.


Staff are great, was there over Xmas and it felt like family everyone being together and having a good christmas dinner aswel as mulled wine. Is a party hostel but you can easily chill out in the tv room or go bed at a reasonable time and it not be too loud. I would recommend.


typically all wild rovers have a good party atmosphere, however was a little quiet when we were there, but you can't knock a hostel because of bad timing


Liz is an amazing receptionist who quickly got me organized for my stay at Wild Rover. She went above and beyond with her job showing me where to go and how to ask for it en Español. Great beds, great shower pressure and a bar that seems to get lively every night. I'd stay again


Good place good food expensive bar prices but the crew there where good had structure not like other hostels in America. Big should out to Liz she was awesome n her side kick. Good place to stay in cusco. Howie

It's the most amazing hostel i ever been,i only can recomend it!great location,clean,fun,best athmosphere ever,best staff and the bar with it's wonderful staff,good drinks,crazy parties,simply the best!thank you,Wild rovers team,i really enjoyed my stay with you,x


Great vibes here. Good well priced food available from bar. Staff were all pleasant. Rooms a little tired but still perfectly acceptable. Good location and great sessions and promotions in the bar most nights. The tour desk was a bit of a rip off. Found prices much cheaper around the square. Wifi only available in reception and bar but worked well. I would recommend this hostel to anyone


The best hostel ever! Imagine you are at your room when the staff get in and offer you free shots...that's Wild Rover Hostel. So if you like party this is the place! Besides that, the hostel offers great quality in everything, large rooms, large beds, clean blankets, big shower with hot water, great breakfast and good menu for food. It's very close to a supermarket and the Plaza das Armas. There are vans around that gives you free rides to the clubs. You will have a good time for sure.


Definitely a party hostel, but all and all, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend it. Breakfast could be better than just bread and jam, but at least there's a low cost breakfast menu to order from if you're really hungry. Breakfast may be better at Milhouse, but the vibe and WIFI in rooms is definitely a plus at Wild Rover.


GreatGreat hostel! Such a great vibe. Great people, specially the bar staff! Jess is amazing, makes everyone feel so welcome...great events and Great foodfood and best of all- the showers are amazing! And say hi to Adam tootoo, great guy!!


Checking in was painful, we had already stayed and provided details then on return of our Inca trip -late at night - we had to do it all over again. This is a party hostel, be prepared to hear the music - base - at the bar pumping until 1am and the odd people running up and down the hostel or banging on other dorms doors and walking in as the doors are not locked. Valuables are locked away in lockers thou. Location is great.
