Without mincing words, we came to La Paz for a brief sojourn from our sightseeing holiday in order to party, pure and simple. And our research told us that Wild Rover was the place to do it in La Paz. Our experience certainly found this to be the case - the onsite Irish pub is the central focus point to... More

If la Paz is your first stop you should think twice before staying here. You are very likely to feel ill because of the altitude. I read the reviews and followed advice. Asked for a 4-person dorm and took ear plugs with me, just in case I needed/wanted to rest. And the first night I needed it. Almost got away... More

The place is paradise for backpackers, service is excellent from all the staff. (we got early from a bus from Uyuni, they let us use the showers, have breakfast leave or things..) Clean with many rooms (need to reserve with time), nice areas and internet WORKS!!!! The bar is super fun, you get to meet many cool people. The food... More

I only stayed here because all other hostels were booked up. This is obviously a party place chock full of 20-somethings who are here to party and hook up with other foreigners. A lot of people doing COKE here, clubbing. When they wake up the next afternoon, they walk barefoot around the hostel. The staff aren't the friendliest, it's way... More

It is definitely a party hostel as the bar seems very busy everyday. It has many rooms too and if you do not like party just simply ask for a room away from the bar. The facility is good but hot water is not a promise. It is clean and tidy but breakfast is VERY basic, only Bread and coffee.... More

Nice Hostel, spot clean, bathrooms cleaned pretty much every hours. Rooms are lilt bit dark. Smoking is allowed in bar, did not miss that time. Regarding staff one should make the difference between the staff at the bar, mostly travellers and the one at the Reception. At the bar super friendly staff at the reception based on my experience half... More

This place is perfect for a young traveller who likes to party. The bar is always packed every night and the staff get a good crowd going. Their choice of alcoholic drinks are great, as is their food. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm on a top level quite far away from the bar, so the noise was no... More

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
