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! :)

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!


First and last time I'll go to a party hostel.


Its a great party hostel, all the staff is very helpful specially Diego!! If you want to met new people its going to be perfect for you, if you want to rest remember its a party hostel!


Nice hostel with good atmosphere and nice bar. If you like to party it's a good hostel to stay with. If you're going on a trek and need to sleep before you get up at half past four its way to noisy.


Great social atmosphere! Very easy to meet other travelers and there's always some sort of party or gathering every night. It's in the same vicinity as the other main hostels and has a good restaurant/bar. Only main downside is that the wifi can be spotty occasionally.


I had such a great stay at Wild Rover! Not only was it an absolute blast but it was also very clean, great wifi, good food and the best staff! As soon as I came in the reception was so friendly and helpful, immediately making me feel comfortable and as at home as I could while in Cusco. Diego and Jorge went above and beyond to make my stay the best it could be. I would highly recommend this hostel to any traveler, it will make your experience in Cusco that much more fun!

Sometimes the internet is not available at the room. But so far this hostel is splendid. Good atmosphere for traveller and people and staff was also friendly


The bar is fantastic, with a lot of food options and good beer. The bed is not comfortable, the room that I was is not so clean and anyone can enter in your room... The door of dormitories are always open, so it is not so safety. The staff are fantastic and always try to help.


Good place to go to party for a few days but the bar is pretty expensive for drinks and food. Sometimes the party felt a bit forced and immature as well (people standing on the bar screaming 'wooo yeah wild rover' whereas certain other party hostels are a bit more natural. Easy atmosphere to meet people and very comfy beds


Great hostel. Great parties. Great location. Would stay again!


Party place - really fun


The best thing about the wild rover in la Paz was the security guard Joseph. The majority of the staff were pretty shocking. The wild rover in la Paz is in a different league.


Comfiest beds and the most fun hostel in Cusco! Definitely stay if you're looking to have a good time and meet like-minded travellers :) !!!


Was unimpressed with the facilities cleanliness and all around vibe of the hostel. Would not recommend it to anyone.


This place is really good to meet other travelers! It's definitely a party hostel, a lil bit too noisy sometimes, better go somewhere else if you look for tranquility! Friendly staff.


Pretty grim hostel unless you're there to party - for which it's ideal. Noisy, dark and dingey dorms but great bar at night, decent food and cheap drinks. Not enough plug sockets in dorms but lockers with sockets and wifi in common area compensates if you have two padlocks. Night time atmosphere brilliant in the bar.


Want a party? Come here. Want to sleep? Go somewhere else. Overall: good food, people, beds, facilities. An awesome place to meet awesome people.


What a great place to stay. If u want, friendly staff, great atmosphere & a place to meet & party with fellow travelers, this is the place to stay. Great facilities, security & storage & a fantastic location. All I can say is FUN, FUN, FUN!!
