I traveled by myself but I was never alone at the Wild Rover hostel. You always meet plenty of people, theres a great vibe, super friendly staff and just overall a amazing time. Theres plenty that they over there and always something going on. Great place to stay at if you want to meet people.

Good party hostel! Lost my dignity on most nights and nearly didn't make it to Machu Picchu! Didn't see cusco for 3 days because I was partying too hard. Don't go to this hostel if you don't like to party! Good drink deals and themed nights. Good food and hot showers. No wifi in the bedrooms but wifi in the... More

Had a great time here. Comfy rooms, nice showers, good tv room and great bar. The staff were very friendly (including a great Scottish bloke) and they put on a decent event every night. Cusco is a great place which helps. Enjoy....

This hostel is brilliant! Particularly if you are a solo traveller, from the minute i turned up i was welcomed by staff and other backpackers! Great facilities, table tennis, bar etc. The rooms were spotless and cleaned everyday. Great entertainment. Just loved it here, one of my favourite hostels!

Well where do you start, it seems the WILD ROVER chain has got its operation well and truly sorted out! Party hostel, wicked food, great bar and staff. And the table tennis arena is on par with wimbledon centre court! Its another vortex tho so be ready to book 3-4 days and end up being there for 9-12days or even... More

Yep. There is no wifi in the bedrooms... where you probably might want it most. There is only wifi in the social areas like the bar and ping pong area. I asked the reception staff to assist me with this but they did not help me. The rest of the hostel is decent... except they forget to change the bed... More

The wildrover was the best hostel I visited whilst travelling around the world. Every night there was a different theme for the evening entertainment which consisted of great music and drinking games. Which got the whole bar singing and dancing together. The staff were very friendly and helpful with days out within Cusco. During the day you can relax in... More

Let's start with the good: - the food is really fantastic and is great value vs what you pay in the city - the location of the hostel is very... More
