5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed for three days and had a really good time. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, the showers are great and the atmosphere is cool. They have nice food and the bar gets pretty agitated at night, especially on weekends, but the sound doesn't get to the rooms. Also, the common area is neat and it's in a good... More

I happened to stay here the day they were moving locations to their new beautiful location overlooking Cusco. So I guessed I had the honour of seeing both locations but staying in the new one on its very first opening night. It was quite happening I must say. The hostel overall is beautiful. The rooms and sheets are clean, shelves... More

Lovely hostel, wild parties and even wilder staff. We enjoyed playing flip cup as much as watching Father Ted the day after hungover in the bar with the staff. Comfy beds (but sheets were too small and came off every night) and hot showers. Would stay again.

This is a nice backpackers where you will meet lots of other travellers. The place is kind of crazy, a lot of people getting drunk at 14.00 but hey, that is kind of backpackers culture. They serve pretty good food and the drinks at the bar are reasonable priced.

The bar staff at Wild Rover consist majority of old creepy men who are in desperate need of getting on with their lives. They prey on young girls and take any opportunity to try their luck. Our private room was like a dungeon with no windows or natural light. However as a party hostel it was perfect and the bar... More

Good for partying, the bar, and the impressive but cheap pub grub! Staff are helpful and nice. Good security. Everything else is pretty average, rooms are nothing special - very basic and cramped, charging appliances hard, wifi not the best and breakfast is literally bread. Freezing cold showers.

Okay, so if you dont like free shots, good atmosphere, awesome staff, probably the best hostel food menu I have ever seen, hot showers and awesome drinking games, this isnt the place for you. Chris and Steve (the managers) really make the place feel like home.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Comfortable rooms, amazing bar, yummy food and great drinks, awesome parties, interesting people, ping pong table, storage in and outside the rooms, and friendly staff. It's a few blocks from Plaza de Armas, so you can walk there, get to know the city, and enjoy its beauty. There are supermarkets, stores and... More

The rooms are so dark and depressing, the staff attention was really bad... My room wasn't ready until 4 pm and I was carrying so many bags and no one offered to help me. The whole place was messy and dirty, they could do a lot more with it... The walls were destroyed, same as the couch and furniture in... More

During my stay in Cusco, I visited the bar a couple times. It's generally a fun atmosphere and I had a good time, however, I really did not appreciate the security guards. The same two guys work the night shift on the first floor and they need to tone it down. I understand that they have a job to do... More
