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


Awesome Hostel chain! Just didn't like that they had one shower per bedroom. The other wild rovers have separate shower facilities, which makes it much easier.


Security: our room didn't have a lock on it! Atmosphere was great if you wanted to party the drinks are soo cheap, 7soles (£1.50) for a double vodka and juice! Good coverage on live sports! Cleanliness: poor, our bathroom was gross someone had been sick all over it and didn't clean it up! Facilities are ok however the wifi was intermittent, hot showers the majority of the time, the in-room lockers are metal, so very noisy and they need to be better located, e.g locker 2 should be beside bed 2!


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.


Good fun hostel. Very helpful tour agency.


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.


I had a great stay here! The bar and staff are amazing, and it's a great place to meet other travellers. The beds were comfortable and there was always hot water. Wifi was sometimes overwhelmed but this is a problem across Peru. Would recommend to others.


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
