With great comfy accommodation, all round tasty food, three sunny patio chill-out areas and a cosy TV room, when you’re not rocking it out in our famous Irish bar, you can relax, get some you time and enjoy the company of your fellow backpackers.

Truly committed to catering to your every need, upon arrival you can look forward to receiving great customer service, with a team of Reception staff available 24-7 to help you with all your queries and ensure your having a pleasant stay.

We look forward to the prospect of you joining us, as we promise to ensure your stay at the Wild Rover is one to remember!

Irish owned Wild Rover Hostel has everything you need to enjoy this beautiful city. Once home to Bolivia's presidents, our 120 year old house has been renovated from top to bottom to give you all the facilities that are hard to find in Bolivia, in a safe and fun environment.

So after that white knuckle Bolivian bus ride, check-in and chill out with us. Enjoy a real hot power shower (24 hours a day) which are not wired to the mains, the comfiest beds in South America with winter/summer duvets and backpack lockers in your room for your security.

Other common areas include our cosy bean bag TV room; with all the latest DVD's and cable TV, and our sunny patio areas, where you can catch up on your books or just chat with fellow travellers.

On-site we provide 24hrs free internet and Wi-Fi, with strong connection in most areas of the house.

Check-in is at 2pm and check-out is at 1pm, so if you are arriving early in the morning and you would like a bed before 2pm you will need to book for the previous day and inform us on your arrival time.

We advise you book ahead to avoid disappointment and we can guarantee you a great time in La Paz.
- All payments must be made in local currency (Bolivianos).
- Due to security reasons, Wild Rover Hostels does not allow guests under 18 years of age.

Your reservation is held for up to 2 hours after your estimated arrival time. After this we cannot guarantee your reservation.

For group bookings (more than one person) in shared dorms, we cannot guarantee that all your group will be together in the same room. We will always try our best to accommodate your group as best possible but sometimes depending on circumstances it is out of our control.

We hope you choose Wild Rover! View House Rules

Overview

Wild Rover Backpackers in central La Paz brings Irish hospitality to Bolivia. Once a presidential mansion, the hostel now houses the highest Irish pub in the world – we're 3,600 metres above sea level! Join us and fellow globetrotters for nightly themed parties, cheap drinks and live music. You can recover from an afternoon of cycling through the city streets by heading to one of our three sunny patios or collapsing into a comfy beanbag in the TV room. When it's time to kick-start the night, take on your new travel buddies at a game of beer pong!

Location

We're centrally located in downtown La Paz, a few blocks away from Plaza Murillo where you can check out the Cathedral and Government Palace. You can catch a taxi from the main bus terminal and reach us in just five minutes. If you’re arriving by plane into El Alto International Airport, the best way to get to the hostel is to hop in a taxi, which takes around 40 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

We have lots of different rooms to choose from, including two types of dorms – traditional bunks or pod-style beds with privacy curtains and built-in storage lockers. Both have female-only options and all have either a private or shared bathroom with power showers. If you fancy a bit more space, book a double or twin room and sprawl out after a long day's sightseeing. Ask for one of the smaller dorms if you want to be further away from the bar.

Extras and activities

Try some traditional Bolivian food (such as silpancho made from rice, potatoes and minced beef) at our on-site restaurant or stick with international favourites like lasagna or stir-fry. Our reception team's available 24/7 so give them a shout when you want to organise trips to the Salar de Uyuni salt flats or Lake Titicaca. If you prefer to do your own background research, hook up to the hostel's free Wi-Fi and start planning your itinerary.

    Had the best time here for nights out. Extended our stay by a few nights as we had so much fun. Jorge looked after us so well for the week we were there. Facilities are good and cleaners are always about the place so it's never dirty! Hair straighteners and hair dries were a luxury after 2 months! Showers can be cold if too many people are using them so try go at off peak times!

    Excellently run hostel where all the important bits (hot showers, clean, secure) are perfect. Food is good, more expensive than local cuisine but you pay a premium for westernised choices! Washing service good. WiFi good. Tourist company in hostel very helpful whether you choose to.book with them or not. Most rooms are not connected to bar area so we were able to sleep early in preparation for treks and activities or stay up and drink if we wanted!

    Lived up to the hype we’d heard. Cleanest bathrooms of any hostel, comfy beds with private curtain and good atmosphere especially in the bar. Cocktail making was brilliant and staff are all super friendly.

    The only complaint I have for this hostel is that they allow smoking in the bar, the burning in your eyes and throat plus horrible smelling clothes isn’t worth not having to go outside, even as a smoker. Apart from that, great beds, atmosphere & staff. Finally, good & clean showers but there isn’t always hot water.

    Pros: Great party hostel - lots of great folks staying there, lots of events every day, tour agency next door. For such a big place it is amazing how clean they manage to keep it! There is strict security check at the entrance and large locker in the rooms. Cons: food and drinks seem a bit expensive, there is no kitchen so no alternative for food and outside booze is forbidden. Seems a bit too restrictive. Also pool table was in bad condition, buy some cues and chalk people!

    The Wild Rover attracts a certain type of traveller. You decide if you want to be associated with that type. I stayed in the superior dorm with privacy curtain. It was not easy to sleep here when the dorm was being used by a group of travellers to drink, do drugs and play music until the early hours of the morning, despite the hostel designating the dorms as a quiet zone after 10pm. This hostel is clean and modern with helpful staff, but with no ability to control what is going on in the dorms

    No hot water in private en suite room. Day reception staff were unwelcoming however night guy was great. Food good but would have been good if there was separate eating area for late dinner after tour instead of in loud booming bar.
