Liked: There's no doubt about it, the organization of this hostel is phenomenal. There are big lockers in every room, small lockers with a electricity socket at the reception where you can charge your iPod safely, lots of bathrooms, lots of cosy common areas. There is a guard at the entrance checking everyone going in and out, the bar is awesome, the food cheap and plentiful, the beds are huge and comfy, the dorms are spacious, the bathrooms are cleaned every hous and thus tip top. Wifi works everywhere, they have their own travel agency, they organize big parties with different themes every night, show news in the morning, sports in the afternoon... Plus the staff i bilingual and very helpful (thumbs up for Giana who helped me out with everythign I needed!). And it's cheap!

Disliked: Stay here only if you want to party all night long. Until 2AM it is just impossible to get some sleep, as there are drunk people literally everywhere and the bar plays loud music. Then at around 0230 when people leave to party elsewhere you manage to get some sleep, but you will be woken up a bunch ot times during the night when they staggr home and ramble around in the dorms.

Liked: I was seeking a party hostel and there´s no doubt the parties here are pretty big, raucous and messy. Otherwise, it´s a very nice hostel. The bathrooms and dorms are very clean, the beds are very good with decent lockers in the room, and the bar is a very good place for striking up a conversation at breakfast-lunch-dinner (good if you´re traveling solo). The food they serve is quite good and not particularly expensive.

Disliked: The demographic of this hostel feels quite young and it´s very white (Anglo-Celtic, not surprisingly, being an Irish backpackers). I think I might´ve met only 2 or 3 South Americans.

Liked: If you want a party hostel, this is definitely the place to come. The bathrooms are nice and clean and the beds comfy.

Disliked: If you want a quiet place, go elsewhere. There is no kitchen but the food they cook is pretty good. Its really loud in the rooms at night cause of the bar

Liked: they made an effort to do something every night

Disliked: There was no real social area in this hostel apart from the bar, where they played painfully loud music so that you couldn´t relax. There were some outdoors areas but when it was raining you couldn´t do much there.

Liked: booked to stay at wild rover for a few nights, ended up staying there for 2 weeks, loved the central location, really close to the plaza. staff are friendly and knowledgable about the local area, willing to give you lots of advice about things to do, the inca trail etc. The bar is one of the best places in cusco to party and meet other travellers, loads of events organised and cheap drink deals. Bar staff are really fun and make the bar a great place to be. Everynight we stayed it was busy but the music finishes at one pm which means the hostel isnt too noisy late at night so its possibloe to egt a good nights sleep. The bar staff usually head out to the local bars with the people staying there which means you dont have to wander around lookign for places to go. hostel also has amazing food and cheap prices. FInally the hostel also felt very safe as they have 24 hour security and they check wristbands to ensure only people staying at the hostel can come and go.

Disliked: nothing, would reccomend it to everyone.
