I didn't even sleep here but I wish I did! Mornings were very chill, people playing ping pong, hanging out reading books, checking email on the computers they have in the lobby. From 7-10pm I believe is happy hour. A drink and a meal for 15 soles.. can't beat that! After 10, people start coming into the bar area. It... More

One down side is there are no cooking facilities in the hostel but the food being so cheap it's not really an issue

Really central. Near the main plaza. The staff are very friendly and it's very safe. 24 hour security. The food in the bar is really good and there is a really good atmosphere. If you are planning on doing machu pichu they will mind you back pack which is super handy. Can be a little noisy at night but it... More

This was our final large dorm stop on a 6 month trip. The 174th night on the road. We moved from Loki to stay in Wild Rover to meet some friends and we're so glad we did. We actually wish we had moved earlier, Wild Rover is a much nicer hostel, cleaner and a lot closer to what we were... More

I stayed here for my birthday, so was in the mood to party. Its hard not to here. The bar staff are awesome, mostly travellers themselves staying for a few weeks and working. Plenty of Happy Hours to keep your bill down, really good hearty food, perfect for tomorrows hangover. The beds are super comfy with duvets and most rooms... More

Beds were fine. I was lucky that the first time my bed was in one of the quiet places of the hostel, but if your room is near the bar (like the second time I stayed there after Machu Picchu) you're screwed. It's really noisy over there. Facilities are fine. Breakfast is not much. The nights in the bar are... More

Before going to this hostel be sure you are not looking to sleep before 12am maximum. This hostel is really nice. Pool table , tennis table , drinking games and a lot of different games at the bar during the night. The beds are very good and the dorms are clean. The only problem is the people going and coming...

You can't bring your own Alcohol into your own room, You can't make any, and I mean ANY noise after 21:00 and until the party starts. They actually came and took away our alcohol and told us to go back to our rooms and be silent or they'll call the police. Yes, we we're a bit noisy with our own... More

Two points for the comfy bed and location but seriously lacks personality. If you've ever been to one of the hundreds of "Irish" pubs in NYC you know what I mean. Music selection is BASIC(top 40 karaoke ALL DAY)This is your In N Out party spot better off not remembering. Food is good tho and easy to book but bottom... More
