We've never received reply to our booking through their website. When we called asking if they have some reply to our inquiry the people behind the phone told us that probably our booking form went to spam. They assured that in a couple of hours they will be replying. It never happened. Irresponsible, reckless, wild people? I think wild rover... More

The staff were great, the parties and the bar live up to their reputation. We had a great time staying here. Don't go if you're looking for something quiet or relaxing. Great place to meet people. The only complaint we had was when checking in all that was available was a private room, which because of the dark red paint... More

Well Wild Rover certainly lives up to it's crazy party reputation.. My liver hates me for staying here! I spent a very fun, but exhausting few days here in Cusco - do not stay here if you intend to get a lick of sleep at any point. The partying goes on 24/7 all week long and is reminiscent of Freshers... More

It's pretty straight forward- if you're looking for a nice quiet place to stay with your girlfriend then don't stay here. The parties here every night are brilliant. I found the beds comfortable and facilities clean. There are no cooking facilities but the food is good. One major disadvantage is that they don't seem to have a rule that you... More

Been there for a few days, I spend the best days ever, sorrounded by great people. Excellent food, even better bar and great parties, met a lot of great friends. If you like Irish Pubs, is the best place to visit. If I go again to Cuco I deffinitly stay there.

The matrimonial room was tiny with a shower that was almost impossible to fit into. The bar scene is certainly festive and we had fun hanging there one night. The party rages until 3 am or so and you can expect to hear a dull roar in your room until closing time. That's expected. However, on our last night a... More

If you want a place to party then come to wild rover. Staff are friendly and helpful and always up for a good time. The location is central, the beds are big and cosy. Don't come here if you are a fussy sleeper needing 100% silence... Perhaps a hotel is a better option for you. Good food and on Sunday's... More

We visited Wild Rover for two days whilst staying at another hostel, as the fod in the pub was great. After visiting Machu Picchu, we came back, and stayed for one night, and had another nice meal. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was fine, and had a great hot shower!

This place is great if you are looking for a real party hostel. We booked in for two nights and really enjoyed them but after two nights I was definitely glad to move on. The breakfast was only ok but the bar menu was very good. We had booked a 4 bed dorm form 3 of use and we're willing... More

I can't speak for staying at the hostel itself - stayed with a family in Cusco - but wound up visiting the bar more than once. Brilliant pub atmosphere, the best I've seen in Cusco, especially for tourists. Good food, and winds up a blast every time I've been, though I'd hesitate to stay the night. You won't be getting...
