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

I came here with my girlfriend and we both had the time of our lives. The bar food was some of the best we had in Cusco while the staff were great fun and helpful. A positive and relaxed atmosphere flowed around the hostel during the day while the parties ran all through the night. A two minute walk to... More

The bar staff and bar area are incredible fun. Super nice and friendly people. Definitely our best night out in Cusco! Other reviewers are correct in that you can't expect peace and quiet until 3AM, but as long as you go into it knowing that and embracing the party you'll have a great time! Hot showers and nice large common... More

If you like parties, this is the place. Imagine that you are at your room dressing up and then the staff get into offering free shots of drinks, it's what it is like there. Also, they have big rooms, good beds, good blankets, good showers and a nice menu for food in the bar.

This is the best hostel for parties! The hostel is great, very well located (walking distance to Plaza das Armas – and cab as cheap as 10 soles from / to Airport), and indicated for backpackers and party people. The rooms are ok, with very good (and big) lockers, and smaller lockers with outlets located close to the reception. The... More

I was pretty disappointed with the room and bathroom conditions at this hostel. Both were dingy and dirty. Plus they seemed to be doing constant renovations so it was quite loud. However the hostel bar is a ton of fun with good food and drinks! The courtyards and shared areas are sunny, big and cozy.
