Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful. If you want to party, this is the place for you

Disliked: It would've been nice if there was an area solely for chilling out in, but I guess you don't go to the Wild Rover to relax!

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.

Liked: Great place to meet people and good craic at night. The toilets were always very clean. It was also very close to the centre and it seemed very safe. Dont go here if you want to sleep!

Disliked: Some of the staff were very unfriendly which was a pity because some were fantastic. The Irish and English staff behind the bar were great but the Aussie guy was very rude. Also some of the girls at the front desk were not very helpful. We also heard lots of people lost clothes in the laundry. The food isnt great and my boyfriend got food poisoning from it.

Liked: its great as a party place but you can also get some sleep too. the bar is great for food and drinks. always cheap deals for drinks. great building. there always seems to be someone cleaning something.

Disliked: as some of the staff are backpackers at least one of them is bound to be a useless twat, so even when its empty in the bar its hard to get served.

Liked: Everything is very clean. The showers are brilliant and the beds so comfy. They have thought of everything that a hostel should have. Plug points, lockers, atmosphere,common areas, plenty of showers, hot water, party nights, good food etc. you name it they have it. Just don't be one of these people to give it a bad rating for being noisy. It states that its a party hostel and it is. Be prepared!!

Liked: very clean, great showers, cool bar, good food, helpful staff. it's a party hostel, but if your room is not right next to the bar, it's easy to avoid the party.

Disliked: dorms a bit crowded, but depends on your roommates, if you like it there or not.

Liked: Everything. A key thing for me is always a clean bathroom and they are probably the best in South America. Spacious dorm room where you can sleep if you`re not in the mood for partying. Awesome bar area with excellent food and well-priced drinks. Good tours (including the best Death Road service provider on site). Highly recommended for all travellers.
