Liked: Very clean and friendly hostel, I´d recommend it to any backpackers looking for a couple of days of home comforts (the food is SO GOOD!!) and parties - as the staff described it, every night is party night!

Disliked: The parties could be heard throughout the hostel, although they did only go on til 2am

20 August 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great beds and showers

Disliked: The staff tried to overcharge us with thir exchange rate everyone should check this as it was the first time the woman checking us out who "have had this problem" and said that the booking price only applied to one of us even though I booked for 2 people and then said it only applied for the first night even though we booked it for 3 nights. Then she tried doing the exchange rate 3 times at their rates which ended up being an extra $3each a night. Make sure you know how much it's meant to be. They also lost 3 peoples laundry while we were there and there are nonlocks on the dorm rooms.

Liked: Essentials, i.e. bathrooms, beds, are all among the best, and super clean. Bar is reasonably priced and food is all right.

Disliked: It is huuuuuuge. Definitely lacks the casual relaxed atmosphere of smaller places. Bar food is not exactly healthy and there is no kitchen. TV room is kind of dingy.

23 May 2010 Sam would recommend this property

Liked: This place does exactly what it says on the tin but because it´s so big, if you are on your own it can be hard to meet people as most people staying there are already in groups. Would recommend maybe trying one of the smaller dorms for a good way to meet people. Food is awesome, beds super comfy and staff very helpful. Detox before you come and then... enjoy.

Natasha Forrester

10 February 2010 Natasha would recommend this property

Liked: Wild rover is a agreat hostel - so good we stayed here twice... Very clean and very coimfy beds, very secure - we always felt safe, and the staff are helpful and friendly. The bar can be a bit loud, which is good when you´re in it but actually not too bad if you just want to sleep. Nice atmosphere, only drawback is internet is impossible to get on if you don´t want to wait by it forever (only two computers) - but there´s plenty of cheap net cafes in la paz just round the corner. Much much better than boring souless loki. Go have a look.

11 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great party hostel. Really clean bathrooms, comfy beds, secure lockers. However, the staff could be more helpful. For example, I really needed to use the phone in reception but the lady at reception point blank refused to let me use it for reasons unknown... She could offer no alternative other than call the people in the morning from the pay phones next door. Great....thanks a lot! Overall a good hostel but that incident, along with confusion over our booking leads me to believe that a few minor staff related issues need resolving before this can live up to the 91% rating.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
