I came here with my girlfriend and we both had the time of our lives. The bar food was some of the best we had in Cusco while the staff were great fun and helpful. A positive and relaxed atmosphere flowed around the hostel during the day while the parties ran all through the night. A two minute walk to... More

The bar staff and bar area are incredible fun. Super nice and friendly people. Definitely our best night out in Cusco! Other reviewers are correct in that you can't expect peace and quiet until 3AM, but as long as you go into it knowing that and embracing the party you'll have a great time! Hot showers and nice large common... More

If you like parties, this is the place. Imagine that you are at your room dressing up and then the staff get into offering free shots of drinks, it's what it is like there. Also, they have big rooms, good beds, good blankets, good showers and a nice menu for food in the bar.

This is the best hostel for parties! The hostel is great, very well located (walking distance to Plaza das Armas – and cab as cheap as 10 soles from / to Airport), and indicated for backpackers and party people. The rooms are ok, with very good (and big) lockers, and smaller lockers with outlets located close to the reception. The... More

I was pretty disappointed with the room and bathroom conditions at this hostel. Both were dingy and dirty. Plus they seemed to be doing constant renovations so it was quite loud. However the hostel bar is a ton of fun with good food and drinks! The courtyards and shared areas are sunny, big and cozy.

The best of the 3 Wild Rover hostels. Good central layout makes it easy to meet people. Front desk staff were helpful, bar staff were slow and seemed to be drinking more than the guests, but generally helpful once you got their attention. Great party atmosphere but don't expect quiet until after 2am. Central location to Plaza de Armas. Spotty... More

very good place if you are looking for some good parties and there is a good vibe everyday. however if you want some quietness or looking for some relaxation then you might want to skip this one. very spacious yard and lovely staff in the bar!

Big thanks to a very helpful, informative and patient front desk, especially Oscar. The hostel is spacious, especially the central atrium. Unlike La Paz (Can't speak for Arequipa) the bigger rooms are close to the bar which sounds throughout the whole hostel. The wifi can't handle the amount of people using it and frequently crashes. The dorms are good value,... More

If your 18 years old and love to party the wild rover will be great. No windows in my room, overpriced tiny lockers and theft warnings everywhere. My door and many others could be cracked open with a butter knife. =camera gear not safe. Only place in Peru I have been concerned about my valuables.

Brilliant beds, brilliant bar and brilliant staff. Great place to meet other travellers and different events organised each day. lockers with sockets provided and large storage lockers in the dorms. A massive thanks to Charlotte and Danny who went over and beyond their duties and insisted on accompanying myself and my friend to the hospital after I was hit with... More
