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.

Great party hostel. Good bar with great staff that are really friendly. Have a day bar (by the pool) and a night bar so you get some variety. Food is fairly decent and cheap. Staying in Arequipa this is the place to come if you wanna have fun.

Very mixed experience here! It is superior to other Wild Rovers (smaller and more laid back), decent but slightly dirty pool (arent they all) and great parties. Easy to meet people, spacious rooms although could be more showers. Two of the staff were amazing, friendly, helpful. The manager however is pretty aggressive about certain things, and they had an inexplicable... More

really quite poor, from the below average communal areas to the dirty bedsheets (they don't change the duvet regularly, only the sheets, and sub par bathrooms, i don't really know what to say. the pub downstairs is ok i suppose but the rest of the hostel lacks any sort of atmosphere, the location is good but the hostel advertises itself...

This hostel was great fun, really good for a night out, and with a very well stocked bar and restaurant. Hammocks on the roof were a nice touch too. The staff are very friendly, and the beds very comfy. Only slight downside is that it's touch and go whether you get hot water, but that happens in most places in... More

So.... if you want to party - probably a good choice. Dancing on the bar, shots directly into your mouth, and pretty decent music. Playing until late... (you may want to pack your earplugs... or just partake of the shots). There's also a make up room, so you can prepare properly for some partying (with hair dryer and straightener provided).... More
