A tourism factory. Fun if you are in La Paz to party (hard) with other foreigners (98% English speakers). Rooms and bathrooms were clean and internet was available. Nice common spaces, but no particular interest in you from any of the staff. Breakfast is a joke, but as the staff insisted, it is not "included", but "offered"...

Excellent hostel and really enjoyed our stay. If you want a quiet room room this is also possible, we had dorm X and you couldn't hear any noise from the bar. We went to bed early two nights and got a perfect nights sleep. The showers were lovely, powerful and hot water. The bar was great fun with two happy... More

This place is absolutely mad. Couldn't imagine what La Paz would be like without Wild Rover The beds are probably the comfiest in all of South America, the nights out are silly good (but beware the personal tab is dangerous), its walking distance to anywhere you need to go in the city, the staff go above and beyond to help,...

Wild Rover In La Paz was everything I expected it to be and more, It had atmosphere, fun, laughs & I met some amazing people who will be life long friends. I came as a solo traveller and you just meet so many cool people and it really goes off at night @ the Wild Rover. They also take you... More

Wild Rovers is admittedly a fun party hostel, with fairly cheap drinks and fun drink specials. They also served decent food (the BBQ special on Wednesday night was awesome), but all ordered food took around 30-45 minutes to arrive, even for food that should have been fast like an omelette. The free breakfast was underwhelming consisting of stale bread, jam,... More

This hostel was average compared to Cusco. The bar was more chilled than cusco. Aka more boring. Wild rover cusco seems more friendly and inviting than this hostel. Bar staff wasn't as fun. Was given a two person room for 3 of us and had to sleep on the floor. Freezing cold showers and no ping pong table ha!
