If you are coming to La Paz and looking to have a good time then this is the place for you! From the moment you was through the door Paula and Lisdey make you feel part of the family. These 2 at reception will go out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one! They take... More

Peoples experience at the wild rover is very varied and individual. First of all this is a party hostel. That does mean loud music, people walking in and out to rooms making noise, the occasional sex in dorm rooms and drunk people doing stuff. So if you are not up for this and just want a bed, do not stay... More

This is definitely a party hostel and if you do not plan on partying or going out every night it's not so recommended to stay at this hostel. The bar is quite loud with the bar tenders preparing shots and encouraging every one around to drink all the time. Apart from the bar there is no other area to hang... More

Great party hostel but don't expect much quiet if your room is close to the bar. Loved the breakfast hours (until 12 noon), but wasn't allowed to use the kitchen facilities at all. Showers varied throughout the property (both water pressure and temperature -tip: use the showers on the bottom floor by the outdoor patios, furthest from the bar) and... More

This hostel was by far the cleanest one we have stayed in in South America. The bathrooms were perfect and the dorms were neat and comfortable. I was worried that the hostel would be crazy and full of drunken loons (which it was) and i wouldnt get a wink of sleep, however the layout of the hostel means that noise... More

Hostel is a lot of fun but they are horrible at doing there themed nights they just seem to lazy to actually organize it properly, other than band nights. But karaoke is a joke they seem to start but never follow though. Food is good but way to expensive! Go hit the streets. But if you want a few nights... More

Just finished two nights at the wild rover La Paz. Please note im not an 18 year party animal yet I couldn't have enjoyed my stay more. My girlfriend and I had a blast and managed to get a great nights sleep. The layout made the noise from the bar quite manageable. A great facility, clean, reasonably priced, hot showers,... More

With a bizarre shortage of decent dorm-orientated hostels in La Paz we felt resigned to Wild Rover even though we don't really like 'Party hostels'. We hadn't booked but were well accommodated by the helpful and friendly front desk staff despite our early arrival. The place is massive and the rooms are far away enough from the party courtyard that... More

If you are a young person looking for a party hostel in La Paz look no further. My friends and I stayed here for 5 nights and did not want to leave. The staff are amazingly friendly, crazy and know how to party. Every night there is a great party atmosphere at the hostel bar, which beats any night club... More

Was pleasantly surprised with our two night stay here. When we arrived at 8am we were welcomed by friendly staff and told we could have the free brekkie, use the lockers and could check in alot earlier than the 2pm usual check in time. The staff were very onto it. The places was very clean and bathrooms seem to get... More
