We've stayed here for about a week, the location is great. They got a Bar/Pub in the Hostel which is ggreat to party and meet people. The Barmanager Billy is an awesome Guy which knows how to treat guests. The Bathrooms are really clean and the showers are hot! Recommend it to anybody!

Like all the Rovers' this is a party hostel. The food is probably over priced, but there is a bit of a dearth of other local offerings, so that might get you. Breakfast isn't the best, but to be expected. Not a place for you if you don't want to enjoy a beer or 12. People will be loud, and... More

Loved my stay here. Staff were ace and Billy behind the bar did a great version of tribute he is a legend. If you want to have fun while you are in la paz then I would stay here. The beds are comfortable l, the showers have hot water and the food is great.

This place has a real party vibe about it and is a great place to meet travellers. The food from the bar is great value for money. There is a big party pretty much every night. If you're after a good night's sleep then this place probably isn't a good choice. The WiFi doesn't work in the bar, but that's... More

If you want to sleep, don´t stay here. It has a cool bar that is always rocking and a MASSIVE party scene which is great unless you need that early night before attempting Death Road. During my stay there were a few occasions where individuals should really have been stopped from buying more drinks because they either became drunk to... More

I stayed at the Wild Rover, La Paz for 8 nights in July 2015. The bar/hostel managers Alice and Jack were very friendly and helpful. All of the bar staff also helped me to feel at home and enjoy myself, particularly Sean, Stacey, Matt, Dana and Camilo. Every night was fun in the bar with club nights organised afterwards. Dorms...

After missing three buses and losing my phone I can still say that this was by far the highlight of my trip round South America. Amazing atmosphere from morning to evening! Bar staff were absolutely amazing- always engaging with us! Alice was always on point...all the other bar staff were also amazing.. Stacy, Dana, (the girl with tattoos sorry can't... More

Cracking hostel, brilliant staff and great night scene. Alice was a stand out, running a brilliant bar and knowing all those staying in the hostel by name, a real asset to the hostel. Sean is a great lad who adds to the overall experience with humour and an infectious party attitude. Top bloke

Used wildrover as a stopover several times whilst travelling around Peru and Bolivia. Always clean and warm. Food served is nice and good breakfast. Warm showers were much appreciated. We didn't always want to go out and party but still found it to be good hostel to stay in. We were having issues with our bag being missing (due to... More

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
