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

Stayed in Wild Rover Cusco for two nights and were pretty happy with it. The rooms were really clean as well as the ensuite but there was no hot water at any time of day or night. Wifi was pretty okay but was sometimes hard to connect if it was busy and didn't reach the rooms. Food and drinks were... More

Found this place on a hostel website and it was a great value! We stayed in a 16-person room and is a great choice for 20-somethings visiting Cuzco and eventually Machu Picchu. Great common area with huge skylight, complete with a bar and restaurant and travel agents! We booked travel arrangements to get to the train station en route to... More

Really bad with higher prices, also the rooms smelled bad, smell mold. Bad staff with poor english, if I come back to Cuzco, I will never stay here again. There are better places to stay with better prices.

It's a nice hostel to spend some time with your friends. It has a cool pub, very nice resting areas and it's close to the Plaza de Armas and the bus stop that goes tô Ollataytamba. But don't get rooms close to the bar, otherwise you'll be unable to sleep due to the noise and drunk people, and also you'll... More
