We stayed here for 2 nights after completing the inca trail. The hostel is in a good location, withing walking distance of all the main tourist attractions in Cusco. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The room was spacious with comfortable beds. We were far enough away from the bar so we could sleep without the noise keeping you... More

The food in the bar is really good from breakfast to dinner and there are specials too! Great location with laundry facilities across the road and... More

Spent a few nights here before and after a trek recently - this is a party hostel, hands down. If you're looking for the smallest semblance of peace and quiet outside the hours of 4:00am - 5:00am, then stay elsewhere. If you want to meet a bunch of crazy people, have a whole lot of fun, and not sleep very... More

On the morning of April 3rd, we checked from online there were plenty beds that day (03.04.2015), but didn't managed to book due to poor internet connection. But when we arrived, was told by the reception that it's totally full. We felt quite surprised as April is quite low season. Later on when back to Lima, over heard an Israeli... More

This place rocks! Stay here if you're looking for a fun atmosphere and to meet people. Rooms are lovely. Bar is wicked and the food is amazing. The drinks are cheap and the staff are lovely! Loved every minute of being here. Never a dull moment. Loads of cool chill out areas.

I'm posting this 20 minutes after cancelling my reservation at Wild Rover and leaving to find another hostel. When my boyfriend and I arrived half an hour past check in, we stood at the front desk for 15 minutes while they tried to figure out where to put us. We booked two days in advance, but when we arrived they... More

We had high expectations coming from Wild Rover in La Paz. The hostel was not as clean, never hand soap, clean towels or toilet roll. There was a big bar with lots of nice food and activities on. The WiFi was nearly non existent. The hostel however was in a great location and was very central. If you want a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for around 3 weeks in March and loved everything about this place. The parties were amazing (obviously) complete with bar dancing, fancy dress and face painting to name a few but Rover isn't just good for parties! The food is really good in the bar and it's cheap. A main is around 15 soles... More
