Ok guys, if you want parties, free shots and epic people, this place is for you! Almost every night, you end up dancing on the bar. More seriously, staff is nice, food is good (a bit expensive though), beds are good even in the big dorms. The parties end at 2AM but you can still go out with everybody in... More

We had a brilliant time here in Wild Rover, it gives you everything! We did two tours and both were competitive on and price and were brilliant fun, safe and extremely interesting (paragliding & Inca Jungle). The hostel is probably the cleanest one I have ever stayed in and it's all about meeting people, eating good food and having a... More

Good portions and never had any real problems being served. Beds/rooms- Excellent! 10/10. Comfortable beds. Stayed in a 12 bed dorm. Of... More

I originally booked three nights at wild rover, but ended up staying six. I was really glad to be here for Christmas. The staff were really friendly, the food was great and the drinks were really cheap (especially happy hour). I can see why some people might not like it here, if you don't want to party then probably stay... More

Great location in Cusco, like the other wild rover hostels its a party place, with activities planned for day and night. Private bathrooms here so that was a plus, especially coming back from the 4 day Inka hike! Friendly staff, busy bar and lots to do while here. Wifi was free but again a poor connection and no wifi at... More

Similarly to the sister hostels, this is a lively hostel, but this can be thrived on or avoided. The hostel provides the capacity to party hard, or wine down around the long excursions. It is well located, and is good value for money.

We decided to book in here for 2 nights after hearing great reviews; and what a mistake! We were given a double room which was so loud it may as well have been inside the bar. The room themselves are tiny, musty with no natural light. Getting a drink at the bar when busy was a total mission, it seemed... More

I stayed in Wild Rover Cusco with a group of friends because we'd heard good things about it, and fresh off our positive experience at Wild Rover La Paz, it seemed like a clear choice. We had a truly terrible stay though due to the staff and fellow backpackers. Only go to Wild Rover if you are looking for a... More

This is a good choice especially if you want to meet other people. Good beds and hot water always available, helpful staff and well run. I would stay again without question. Location is good also but as it is a party hostel it might not be the best choice to stay in if you have to get up early for... More
