Just finished two nights at the wild rover La Paz. Please note im not an 18 year party animal yet I couldn't have enjoyed my stay more. My girlfriend and I had a blast and managed to get a great nights sleep. The layout made the noise from the bar quite manageable. A great facility, clean, reasonably priced, hot showers,... More

With a bizarre shortage of decent dorm-orientated hostels in La Paz we felt resigned to Wild Rover even though we don't really like 'Party hostels'. We hadn't booked but were well accommodated by the helpful and friendly front desk staff despite our early arrival. The place is massive and the rooms are far away enough from the party courtyard that... More

If you are a young person looking for a party hostel in La Paz look no further. My friends and I stayed here for 5 nights and did not want to leave. The staff are amazingly friendly, crazy and know how to party. Every night there is a great party atmosphere at the hostel bar, which beats any night club... More

Was pleasantly surprised with our two night stay here. When we arrived at 8am we were welcomed by friendly staff and told we could have the free brekkie, use the lockers and could check in alot earlier than the 2pm usual check in time. The staff were very onto it. The places was very clean and bathrooms seem to get... More

Me and two of my friends stay here for a few days and loved it. Great atmosphere, cheap happy hour and really friendly bar staff. I met Alex, Kris and Matt who were top lads and got me well and truly hydrated

I stayed at the wild rover for two nights due to an accomodation discrepancy elsewhere, Let me start off by saying party hostels are not my scene , in fact I cant stand them, but every establishment deserves an impartial review. The good : staff found me a nice bed in the dorms quite late when I had to move... More

My 7 friends and I stayed at Wild Rover Backpackers (La Paz) on 8/18 & 8/29. Not only is this hostel extremely clean, but the customer service is exceptional. We stayed at multiple hostels during our trip around Peru, but this hostel far exceeded our expectations. Wild Rover also has a very welcoming social atmosphere and offers great happy hour... More

Large hostel with great parties 7 days a week, good food, comfy beds, lots of showers, hot water, very clean, good location. Would certainly recommend for people that don't want to sleep early! One of the best party hostels in South America!

I stayed in Wild Rover for an entire week with a large group of friends, and had a brilliant time! I definitely wouldn’t have stayed if I was a solo traveller, but glad I got to experience the Wild Rover party reputation at least once. We partied pretty hard, both in and out of the hostel, and also enjoyed the... More

If La Paz is on your route through South America, I can definitely suggest Wild Rovers. It is more then just a regular hostel. I'd call it a lifestyle. Nice programs, good parties and it seems that everybody is surfing the same wave. You feel welcomed from the very first moment. Don't miss it.
