It's loud, it's dirty and yet it's so expensive! The bar staff are so nice yet the front desk staff are painfully rude to the point it's shocking. Much nicer places in the area. Most of the people we met moved as they couldn't hack it anymore. Most people are so drunk that staying in a dorm is unbearable -... More

Being a solo traveller and wanting to find a party hostel this was definately the right place. Within about 5 minutes if you make the effort you are talking to about 5 people at the bar. Staff are usually travellers so are in the same boat as you. Super clean bathrooms was really surprised at how clean they were. Staff... More

the hostel is quite great, it's clean and pretty cheap. we took part in the barbecue offered, it was pretty expensive (like in every hostel) but the food was great and the portion really big. the only down side for me is that the staff at the bar doesn't speak spanish AT ALL, so if you are looking for the...

This is a really social hostel, good if you want to party but also fine if you don't.. Just get a room away from the bar. The 6 bed girls dorm is far from the bar. Good bathrooms and cleaned literally every hour throughout the day!! Good travel shop on site. Excellent wifi! Food is average in the bar but... More

Great clean comfortable rooms, beds were amazing! Wifi worked in the room, which was a nice treat! Super fun atmosphere, loud at night near the bar, but not too bad by the rooms. Staff is very helpful! Bathrooms were spotless, cleaned every hour. An awesome place to stay!!

This hostel had better bathrooms than any hotel we've stayed in on our trip in SA! Get in early if you want a hot shower - the hot water was usually gone midday. The dorm rooms were spacious and having a bar and restaurant onsite made it easy to enjoy our time in La Paz! Our room had windows and... More

This place is perfect for a 20 something year old looking to party and make friends - you will not be disappointed. Bathrooms are cleaned every hour and are in great condition, hot water all day long with good shower pressure, theres even a hair salon with straighteners and blowdryers out for free use. Rooms are clean, tidy and spacious... More

Wild Rover is a good place to stay if you like partying. We stayed there for one night not with partying in mind and were quite lucky to receive a room that was located a bit away from the bar. It gets pretty noisy during nights but if you are a good sleeper you should be alright :) The food... More

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
