Good location. Nice bar. I like a party, but didn't like this hostel: too much drugs. Bathrooms should be cleaned more often.

Good hostel if you are English, Australian or Irish and want to feel like you are back home (ie: get drunk at the bar and watch football on tv). If not... Bar staff was very rude. This said, the facilities are nice and the hostel is conveniently located with good security.

Make a 'mild rover' section for the namby pamby pain in the ass kids who complain about noise when they've booked a room at the most notorious party hostel chain in South America.

Staff , esp. Sandra, is very helpful and speaks very good English. Nice place to party and to hang out.

Arrived late due to the strikes in Uyuni. After a horrible journey we were told that the hostel had given our beds away! Cheers! When we told the staff the next day they weren't even apologetic. This is a real "get them in, get the cash and get them out" hostel. Good bar tho. My advice is stay somewhere else and visit the bar... Then go home where you might get a nights sleep....

Wild Rover is a great hostel if you're in the mood to party a lot and are traveling in a group. It seems like a great time if that's your thing. Unfortunately, I was solo and had early mornings so it was more of a nuisance for me. My biggest gripe was that the wifi was basically unusable at the hostel. I had to go to a cafe to get a decent connection. The bathrooms have no external door so a cold draft is always coming in. This isn't the best when taking showers.

Good party but no hot water and unfriendly reception staff.

We stayed 2 nights at the Wild Rover in La Paz in a 6 bed femle dorm. The beds were very comfortable and the showers were warm. Breakfast is basic (bun, jam, tea) and you have to walk outside around a courtyard to get to the bathroom which was chilly. We arranged a 1 day tour of Chacaltaya and Valle de Luna through the hostel tour agency which was very good. The room was pretty quiet even though it was still close to the bar. Good budget option!

Arrived and we werent warmly welcome, got to our room to discover what looked like it hadnt been cleaned for days. showers are basically outside under just a tin roof, which after a night out and wanting to feel fresh and clean wasnt good!

party hostel. the rooms at the back (private rooms and one dorm) is quieter, depending on the dorm you get , you may never be able to sleep

Stayed for 2 nights and that was enough, this is a serious party hostel and we are getting old. Best bunk beds in South America!
