Wild Rover Hostel Cusco
Ranked #9 of 517 Speciality Lodging in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2013

The hostel is very honest about the service it is supplying. It is a party hostel. If you are planning a quiet few days or if you are trying to acclimatise for the Inca trail and want to take it easy don’t stay here. On the other hand if you want to do some serious drinking and partying this is the place to go!

The place was clean but very dated and basic.

Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the bar area - no sleep otherwise!

We really liked this hostel. The staff were friendly and very accommodating, the hostel itself has a nice feel to it, and the bar is definitely the showpiece. Wild rover is definitely not for everyone, and after reading some of the earlier reviews I had to laugh... I agree the place is not for couples looking for a quiet time, but who looks for a quiet time in a place called the Wild Rover?! We did party here and found an excellent atmosphere every night, great themed events. good food, good value booze, and good beds. If you are looking for a good laugh in Cusco it is the place to be.

I know it's a party hostel but even then 'there are boundaries'.
People where peeing in the trash ban in the dorm. The dorms smell very bad (alcohol, sleep etc) there isn't a possibility to air the rooms. And the worst part was that it was a big orgie. People had very loud sex all night the bed under me. There were also people that didn't slept in the room, they came in and where having sex on clean beds.
Maby the hostel can't avoid that kind of people, but if you're complaining about the peeing and stuff, they don't look at you and don't listen, they don't do anything. They didn't discount me or apologized. Really the worst staff and hostel ever. I slept in a lot of hostels but I never met so unfriendly staff en horrible people.

This is a good sized party hostel. 16 of us arrived at the hostel at 10pm without a booking and they managed to get beds for all of us. The rooms are decent, with good beds, warm showers and big lockers. There's a nice communal area with a ping-pong table, sofas, lockers with chargers and computers. But everything happens in the Irish bar which serves decent food, good drinks and has a great atmosphere. There's always a party going on so don't expect to sleep much, and there's no kitchen to cook yourselves. A great place to stay in the middle of Cusco for a couple of nights and party.

After walking around in cusco for a few hours trying to find a private room with bathroom, this was our only choice we could find. We viewed the room and was happy with it. We chose the room furthest away from the bar and was told by the lady at the reception that we won't hear the music late at night.. As they have parties very night and no curfew at all. This is a great hostel for young singletons who like to party and drink to early hours in the morning. Not ideal for couples who want a relaxing time before starting the inka trail. We night before the inka trail we had little sleep asthe party was going on so late and many people were running and talking up and down the corridor, which set us up in a bad mood when we left at 3.30am for the inka trail. The food on the menu was great and meets some home comforts.
Overall staff at the reception are helpful.

I stayed in this hostel and everynight there was a party going on. The staff is great and very helpful! The food served in the bar is great and serves large proportions. The mattresses are super comfy and the best beds ever! I liked it so much that I stayed in all 3 Wild Rovers during my trip!

Attention, this is obviously not a good hostel if you're traveling for business, with you family or if you are more than 35!
However, if you're young, wild and free ;) and you like partying, drinking, dancing, meeting cool people from every corner of the world this is definitely the best hostel for you.
The amazing thing, is that you get to know everyone at the hostel, so you feel like home, and you find them all at the nightclubs (and can recognize them because of the Wildrover bracelet)
I simply had the time of my life there, and made really good friends from all over the world with whom i keep in touch!

Room Tip: A shared room of 10 people is great!
