Wild Rover is the quintessential party hostel, and as such, can be noisy. The facilities are actually very clean considering the size of this hostel and the beds are larger than usual hostel beds. I really enjoyed the pub upstairs and the atmosphere around the parties. The staff was very helpful in finding locations in La Paz and the next... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in a group of 7 and found that the rooms were pretty good and clean. Toilets and showers areas were very good and constantly kept clean. Not being smokers we suffered a lot when it came to eating or having a few drinks here. Even the staff were smoking. A lot of the time... More

The parties in the Wild Rover pub are legendary and the pub itself it's quite exclusive because it's meant for tourists. The rooms have a good price, they're comfortable and clean with working hot showers. The travel agency have great packages with good prices. By far, the best hostel in La Paz.

Wild rover is definitely a party hostel, so if you are looking for that is a great place! The facility's are really clean, good beds, and decent food! Though if any night your looking for something more relaxing is hard to find a spot just to seat and talk!

Wild Rover is know for its parties so dont stay if you want a good nights sleep. We wanted to let loose & it didnt disappoint. Danced on the bar, made some great friends and paid the price in the morning. The food at the bar is pretty good too! just make sure you leave for the day and actually... More

Beginning by saying that this is the worst of the 3 Wild Rover, that would not be a problem. But we had problem with the agency inside there. They sold us the Chacaltaya trip without saying that it was not being possible to reach the 7 last km to the top, because the snow was in the road. Then at... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with friends. The hostel is very clean. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The bar is good fun and can get crazy at times so make sure your room is not near it. They can organise trips to the death road and other local attractions. Food in the bar is good and wifi works throughout... More

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!

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
