Good place to stay for a night or two, fast wifi, decent breakfast, friendly staff, pretty good location. Nice to have your own bathroom in a dorm. Needed extra blankets as it was cold at night.

A place to stay before your Uyuni de Salar adventure, wouldn’t want to spend more than a night though. Coldest shower I’ve ever had (similar to an ice cold river) cold at night but had a little heater which wasn’t bad. Nice staff and nearby lots of restaurants and tour agencies. Wifi was virtually unusable everywhere I tried.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in, they deserve their high rating. Planned to just stay a few nights while we did some spanish lessons, but after getting a stomach bug we ended up staying a week. Really cheap, lovely staff, good kitchen, large and hot showers, and cheap brews. Wifi wasn’t too bad, so not too much to mark them down on. Would definitely come back!

Really good value for the price. One of the staff members was particularly helpful and friendly. Alright food, only beers sold during the week and you have to pay for the pool table which is annoying when you have to go downstairs to pay and get the balls every time you want a game. Wifi was ok and the dorms and showers were good. Would definitely stay again!

Just stayed a night to get our WR t shirts, was a bit quieter and smaller than the other two but decent bar and pool table none the less. Tequila pong was good fun and you’re always sure to meet some cool people. Bar closes up a bit early but fortunately there is a fairly famous bar in La Paz you can go to afterward. Food not as good as the Peruvian Wild Rovers but not bad. Enjoyable stay at the WR chain. Cheers guys!

Nice place with reasonably priced private rooms with ensuite bathrooms and comfy beds. Good place to stay for a night or two but not much in the way of atmosphere. Wifi was a bit dodgy in the rooms.

Could appreciate the hostels eco policies but did seem a bit more along the lines of a health retreat. No smoking/drinking policy was a little weird and could have been included on their Hostel World page. Guy behind the desk was helpful in giving us information to get over to Isla de Sol. Gave me a hard time about getting our deposit back for the door key which I gave to another member of staff the night before. Expensive.

Not a bad hostel, bit on the cold side though. Facilities were alright, showers hot. One member of staff was really helpful when our bus didn’t show up at 5am for a Rainbow Mt tour and helped us sort it out for us. Would stay again.

Get what you expect for the price, brekkie wasn’t bad, showers were hot but tiny. One member of staff was a little confused trying to overcharge us and didn’t seem to know how to use the computer. Decent budget place though.

Always a good time at Wild Rover, privacy curtains in the dorms are a good touch. Decent priced food and brews, shocking music but overall great place to stay

Ended up staying two extra nights, really good atmosphere for the football and met lots of cool people. Food was surprising good, staff were friendly and helpful and always trying to organise something. Fun beer pong tournaments and a decent little pool table made it difficult to actually go out and explore Arequipa! Security was a bit over the top and a lot of rules, but I guess that’s what you get with a large party hostel. Staying at Wild Rover Cusco after an enjoyable experience in Arequipa!

Roberto was really helpful, had lots on information on what to do in Arica and on crossing the border to Tacna. Just us and one other person there while we were staying, so pretty quiet but relaxing. A good pool table and foosball table. Wifi was good downstairs but didn’t really reach our room. Overall a good stay!

Enjoyable stay at Aji Verde, excellent wifi all throughout the hostel, and able to watch all the WC matches in the tv room. Basic but good breakfast, warm showers, friendly staff members, and great balconies with nice views. Pretty close to the city centre, supermarket etc. Would definitely stay again, thanks!
