We went to Wild Rover looking for party but that doesn't mean that we were looking for bad service from the staff there. The hostel is fine, breakfast is not good, in general it isn't clean, showers are cold, but besides that it is ok. The night we arrived there was no party, everyone was sleeping (I don't know why)....

Unfortunately not a great experience. As Peru Hop Passangers we were put in the 20 bed dorm right above the bar. If you're looking for a wild party, you'll definitely find it here. If you want a couple hours of sleep this isn't the place for you. I suppose that's just the vibe here. Staff were super friendly and I...

Dear Laura, We would like to thank you for your review and assure you we have taken your comments on board. We are indeed a party hostel and recognise the noise levels from our bar can be a problem. We are working on developing ideas on how we can improve this and also creating more electrical plugs in rooms. Thank...

The Wild Rover Hostel is a good hostel in a great location. The only thing I would recommend is that you take earplugs – the bar stays open late and it gets loud. The people working the bar, and front desk were very nice and helpful also they have excellent food. Over all a great place to stay if, you...

Pros: If you're looking for a party hostel then look no further. Drinks are super cheap and the bar has a good atmosphere with bar staff who want to get everyone drunk!

Hostel is located a few blocks away from the Plaza de Armas, near several tourist agencies. Great pool bar at the back of the hostel, the main bar opens later in the day. Comfortable beds and several bathrooms spread throughout the building. Special thanks to Mario for helping me out on several occasions!

Great if yourre looking to party. Central location. Mario very helpful in helping me even after Id checked out. Very safe, they lock a door guarded by security so bar visitors cant go to rooms. Plus in our room. Lots of bathrooms.

If you want to have a good night of sleep, do not expect a quiet night in Wild Rover, but if you're up for meeting a nice bunch of backpackers, and also some locals: do stay in Wild Rover. Really enjoyed staying here.
