5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here in a 4 bed dorm (there were 4 of us). It is in a great location and they have their own travel agent to book things through. It is a great party hostel, they have their own bar which many people from other hostels come to. Later in the night they have a bus taking everyone to... More

Wild Rover lives up to its reputation as a party hostel with a young crowd. Don't stay here unless you plan on getting onboard the party train and can handle being interrupted by fellow revellers in the middle of the night. Don't forget your earplugs... The bar is rammed every night, food is good but a little overpriced, bunkbeds are... More

Great hostel and a place to party. The bar staff are shocking, you will wait hours for your food, get ignored at the bar by the staff, they really need to sort out their hospitality standards. The food and drinks are over priced, don't bother spending your money here.

If you want peace and quiet, stay somewhere else (you can hear music blaring from most of the dorms). If you want to meet people and end up dancing on the bar every night (trust me you will), then theres no better place! One of the most social hostels I've stayed in. Well organised travel desk lets you book Death... More

Pure Party Hostal. Nothing for a relaxing and recovering stay after an active few days in the surroundings of La Paz. Cleanliness great, double rooms and beds comfortable, breakfast average served in a smoking bar, quietness inexistent, repeatedly woken by drunk and drugged up people speaking and playing guitar in the patios, illegal substances are banned from the hostal, however...

Clean hostel, good food, nice beds, but the plugs are loccated too under to attend the upper bed. THere are parties every day, so if you want a calm place you should not stay here. There are also a good tour company where you can get tickets and informations. Hot water, nice and free wifi, there are lockers (dont forget... More

I stayed two nights in Wild Rover and they were both totally different experiences. The first I was in a room with people who never spoke a word to me and the second night when new people arrived we spent the entire night in the hostel bar and were all dancing on the bar by the end of it. The... More

Don't stay here if you want a quiet relaxing night. This place is mental. Always a party happening or something going on. You are guaranteed to make new friends. Spent Christmas Day 2013 here and had an amazing day. The place is loud and not the cleanest but the craic is mighty and the drink always flowing. Ask for Jack... More

It's been a few weeks since since I left Wild Rover. I'm currently in Europe, but I recall my time fondly. I came to meet a friend and was offered a job on my second day. The staff was fun and convinced me to join. Great people and had to off met well over a thousand people. People would know... More
