Arrived at Wild Rover at about 6am on the morning of our check in date and the staff were kind enough to let us check straight in which meant we could get a few goes of decent sleep after an overnight bus. The staff were really helpful and friendly and very accommodating. Having spent the last fortnight without decent wifi... More

This is my second time staying at wild rover Arequipa and I can't help to feel at home. Peaceful environent. The beds are really comfortable (have tried the dorms' and matrimonial bed, both great). Hot water in the showers and always someone at reception to help you.

Shower water pressure was low, and water was cold. Bar get rowdy and very loud; sleep with earplugs! No kitchen and no towel rental! Huge negative. If you're looking to meet interesting people, then you're good here. If you want a quiet place you can rest and cook and prep for the next day, then you're in the wrong place.

The hostel was clean and our room was spacious. The location was fantastic - only 5 minute walk from the main square. Breakfast (buns) left something to be desired, but there's a restaurant onsite if you wanted something else. This was definitely the more quiet of the two wild rovers we have been to, with the night bar up front... More

I know that wild rover is a party hostel and therefor might not the right hostel if you really wanna sleep. It has good food and it's clean. breakfast: bread, jam and coffee/tea. Internet is only working at the reception and there is sometimes only one outlet provided in the whole dorm, but there are little lockers at the reception... More

What a hostel... Love this place, staff, cleaners and security a could not be more friendly. Emmie could not me more welcoming (backpacking manager) She knows Arequipa like the back of her hand and she's very well travelled so her recommendations are very welcoming. Great value for money, great locations and a splendid hostel in all. Gutted to leave. Hope... More

I haven't stayed at a party hostel in quite a while but was pleasantly surprised. Staff was nice and well organised, the dorms were super clean, spacious and the beds had very comfy mattresses. The pub organised something else every day and does decent food.

The bar here is great for getting completely lashed. The staff do a good job of getting everyone up for a party by organising games like beer pong etc. People often then migrate to a nearby club to carry on partying. You can organise activities easily from the hostel as well, we did kayaking which was really good. Accomodation is... More

Second time there. Location is pretty good, two blocks from Plaza de armas and the Cathedral. Lots of nice restaurants nearby. The hostel has lots of rooms good valued. We got a private room, close to the swimming pool what it's nice on the evening if you want to go bed early but not if you want to sleep late.... More

A fun party hostel in Arequipa. Only stayed for a night, but staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere. Hot showers but inconsistent WiFi. 20-bed dorm was somewhat quiet, but clean.
