We lost a few days of our trip here. It is very much a party hostel, but that is what it is know for, so don't be surprised if you can't sleep because of the noise from the bar, or of people come tumbling through the door at any hour. If that isn't your thing, this hostel probably isn't for... More

Great hostel to stay at, very centrally located near the main square! The security was great- I felt very safe here. The staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful! Unfortunately there was rarely hot water for a shower, but this was the only negative part about our stay here. I would definitely recommend it to anyone planning on visiting Arequipa!

Well worth staying here if you're in Arequipa. It's definitely more of a young adult scene as it's quite lively and focussed on fun - which we definitely had whilst here. It's well located too for sights and seeing much of the city. Would recommend.

Wild rover has a fun bar with lots of events. Drinks and food are reasonably priced and okay. However, there is rarely any hot water, which is frustrating and the rooms are dingy and not very clean. The breakfast is standard for Peru (bread and jam) but the pool is unusable as it's so dirty. The bar is very loud... More

Did not stay here as there were no private rooms available. The bar however was ok and a good place to meet people and have a well prices meal. If you can handle all the cigarette smoke and some 90s music then it's a good place to go before heading across the street to the circus bar.

I found this to be a spacious and friendly hostel. Stayed - few more nights than originally planned. Found Arequipa to be a very nice destination (despite there where some riots). Nice city, tons of culture and this hostel is in a perfect spot for easy access to all of it!

Hostel is quite all right. I was there for 2 nights. We had cool party with other guests. Also i think that they have good trips for tourists, especially rafting. It's clean and the receptionists are helpful. I was disappointed by swimming pool.

I stayed here with friends, and we booked it based on reviews and recommendations. I would not stay here again, rooms were in need of a good clean and a bit of upgrading. Pool area and pool were also not clean and i did not use the pool in the time i was here. Showers and toilets were cleaner than... More

Spent two nights here recently on a tour through Peru, and stayed in a four bed dorm. Be warned up front - the Wild Rover hostels are known as party hostels, and that's proper party...there will be people arriving back from a night out throughout the entire night, and they will be laughing and talking loudly in their slightly inebriated...
