Spent 15 really good party nights at Wild Rover. The place provides amazing big beds, insanely clean facilities and very helpful stuff. My thanks go especially to the two gorgeous señoritas at the reception, Lisdey and Paola, for highly recommendable advices and uncondicional help! To sum it up: a really good place to go!

The Party hostel reputation did not fail to disappoint! great night life, alright food. organised all our trips through them (death road, salt flats, amazon tour, and the women's wrestling)! loved this hostel but it was definitely not a hostel you rest at!

Wild Rover is mostly focused on the bar aspect of their hostel than the actual hostel part. The bar is pretty nice and the bartenders are great, but it's better to visit rather than stay there. The showers did not work well at all, and the room I was in was pretty cold at night too. Not a bad experience... More

Wild Rover has a reputation as a party hostel, and it did not disappoint. The hostel has good infrastructure, comfortable beds and good showers. Drunk people can be found almost daily at 6am at the reception area. I went to bed early one evening in preparation for Death Road, and a female bartender flung my 4 beds dorm room door... More

Located in down town La Pa, it is one of the two vibrant and popular hostels around. The eateries, tour operators, banks, markets, city square and other facilities are within walking distance. It's a two storey old school building with open space in the middle. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm room. Room: Big with bunk beds but... More

Honestly one of the most loose hostels I've ever been to, it's known as a party hostel for a reason but aside from an incredibly rowdy bar scene, the beds and showers are dope, the staff super friendly and the hostel is incredibly helpful in arranging tours for death road and rurrenbacque. The manager Jack is a good man and... More

Although relatively expensive by Bolivian standards (70 Bolivianos), you get what you pay for. Great rooms, perpetually clean bathrooms and spaces, well stocked tv room, pool table and a wonderful bar to let your hair down after a rough few days on Bolivian busses. Breakfasts is somewhat meagre and there is no kitchen use included, but good meals can be... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in 4 bed dorm when we were in La Paz. The staff throughout from the reception, the bar & the cleaners were all very helpful and friendly. The room itself was very clean and cleaned everyday. The bathrooms were spotless and the cleaners were continuously cleaning them throughout the day. We never had a... More

In short words it is a big, very big, clean hostel. And it has good security service and lockers in the rooms and reception. For a hostel that size and with hostels in more than one city I had expected a good shower and a good wifi! Both disapointing! Shower was always cold and the wind from time to time... More

Stayed here as friends had already booked in and was expecting the worst. But I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it's a party hostel but I was in 4 bed dorm toward the back courtyard and found it pretty quiet, quite spacious, light and airy. There were large lockers for your bags, comfy beds, a few sockets for charging things but... More
