Wild Rover is known for being party hostels in Peru, but honestly our stay was filled with hitting the sack at 9 pm and sleeping through the night. The trick is just getting a room at the back near the pool. We had a private with shared bathroom (right next door) for 50 soles. The hostel works because it has... More

If you're not looking to party don't stay here. It's hard to sum up the staff because some were very nice and incredibly helpful and others were quite unpleasant to the guests. The beds are very nice and the location is great, but aside from that the set up is so-so. There is a different "party" in the hostel bar... More

It is clean and spacious.But it is the same as other party hotel that it is very noisy. But you will have fun in the party everynight. The breakfast is simple that only bread and butter and jam provided. Moreover, it is great that have breakfast by the swimming pool.

We slept here for 3 nights but partied here for more than a week, the Irish bar is the best one in town, all days of the week. The food in the bar is overall ok but definitley not as good as Wild Rover La Paz.

Definitely a party hostel! Great location for seeing main sights, squares and museums of Arequipa. Dorms clean but very large. Good wifi and lots of charging points. Bathrooms small but kept clean, hot water temperamental. The deal breaker for most is the bar downstairs. If you want quiet, don't come here. Various themed party nights, pool and games room, dress... More

We actually stayed in the 3 Wild rovers, and this was the worse. Our dorms was very noisy, we could hear everything from the street and the bar. We love party hostel but this one was not so great. There are only 2 hot showers. But the worse was definitely the staff ! Some of them were sympathics but others... More

I had a lot of fun staying at this hostel. The staff was really nice and helpful, food was great, and partying here was awesome! The rooms and especially the bathrooms were not very clean, and the internet barely worked at all. I wished the breakfast area was a bit bigger and the pool is so small it's not necessary... More

“Amazing hostel! The vibe is great and the pub downstairs is an amazing place to meet new people, especially if you're travelling alone. The only thing is the water in the shower, that that takes a while to heat up, and when it does, lasts for about 3 minutes...

This was a fantastic hostel to stay at. My friends and I were previously staying at a different hostel and switched to Wild Rover. We were so thankful we did! The staff got us situated into our rooms and were very helpful with any problems that arose. The rooms are really big, the beds and so comfortable, and the lockers... More

I stayed in a private room for one night. It smelled moldy and had no private bathroom (you can get a private with bathroom for around the same price at loki around the corner) The worst part was when we decided to book a salt flat tour in the agency located in the wild rover building because we thought it...
