very nice hostel for agitated people! very big, many facilities, inside bar - great food, double drinks every night, snooker, ping pong table, beds are comfortable but 16 beds room is for brave people! the drunkest, loudest, most disorganized people stay in it, 8, 6 or 4 beds room is the best option. It's very close to plaza de armas... More

An amazing hostel for anyone ready to party or who is a deep sleeper. The beds are amazing! Very soft with thick blankets for warmth. Many rooms have their own bathroom, which, if that's what you like, is great. More private. I personally like communal bathrooms better. You also get a storage locker. The staff is great and helpful.

Wild Rover is the best hostel of south america. I've stayed in all 3 and this one was where I had more fun. Nice people, nice rooms, very spacious, airy, very good localization. The staff are very attentive!

We were recommended it by a friend, so hoped for the best. A really relaxed atmosphere during the day, lounging on the patio, on beanbags and playing pingpong, transforms dramatically to one of the busiest bars in the area come evening. Due to the party vibe, everyone staying there seems to be of a similar mindset and really easy to... More

Tonight 27/7 at 10pm I made a call to make a booking for a couple of argentinian friends. A rude guy took my call and when I ask for availability and he realize that I was peruvian he was sighing, huffing and puffing with annoyance throught the phone telling me that I have to wait. After several minutes waiting on... More

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....
