Several friends told me to stay at the Wild Rover Cusco and it didn´t disappoint. We planned to stay for a week and ended up there for almost 2 weeks. The staff are brilliant, its extremely clean, food and drinks are great and the beds are super comfy. As a couple, this was a great place for us to meet... More

AWESOME Hostel. I had previously heard of the legend that is The Wild Rover hostel and I finally was lucky enough to stay. I can say it surpassed all expections! This place has something to offer everyone whether its partying (which these guys must have PhD´s in), organising your Cusco adventures or just chilling with fellow travellers. There is a... More

Was here in January and came back again for Paddy's day! It's great if you are looking for a party. The beds are super comfy and food is served all day. It's great if after being around South America you are looking for some long missed home comforts. The staff is super friendly and fun! Defo recommend as a place... More

This is a horrible option for a couple, i guess if you are traveling solo or with a group of friends it could be concidered a fun place but after being in cusco for a couple of weeks i can honestly say DONT STAY HERE if you are looking for a private room.. It's small, dirty and has no windows..... More

Fantastic and best hostel of my stay so far!! Originally booked in for 1 night, ended up being 13 nights at Wild Rover. The managers Numa, Adam and Lena are fantastic - so are their staff & volunteers. You feel right at home and safe here whilst being able to have crazy nights in the Bar. The rooms are really... More

If your plan staying at this hotel is not to sleep, but to meet friends, have a real good time and party all day, all night, this is the place! Great staff, great food, great location. I was planning on staying two nights, but I just couldn't leave and ended up staying Seven.

Good things first- excellent location, 5 mins from the main square, beds are really comfortable, we had a 4 person room with ensuite the whole time we were there which was great. Showers were really hot and powerful which was really welcome after the jungle trail. Bad- the staff are utterly clueless. We knew it was a party hostel and... More

This place is awesome if you are looking for somewhere loud and social. Wifi is average as is the lighting in the dorms, couldn't see a thing! No storage space but the beds were comfy. The bar is cool though, food is great and the events are fun. Made some awesome friends here. Great location too and the travel desk... More
