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

I traveled by myself but I was never alone at the Wild Rover hostel. You always meet plenty of people, theres a great vibe, super friendly staff and just overall a amazing time. Theres plenty that they over there and always something going on. Great place to stay at if you want to meet people.

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....

This hostel is brilliant! Particularly if you are a solo traveller, from the minute i turned up i was welcomed by staff and other backpackers! Great facilities, table tennis, bar etc. The rooms were spotless and cleaned everyday. Great entertainment. Just loved it here, one of my favourite hostels!

Well where do you start, it seems the WILD ROVER chain has got its operation well and truly sorted out! Party hostel, wicked food, great bar and staff. And the table tennis arena is on par with wimbledon centre court! Its another vortex tho so be ready to book 3-4 days and end up being there for 9-12days or even... More
