Liked: The hostel is one of the better ones around Arequipa. It has some really comfortable beds which are always welcome. The bar is reasonable and food is pretty decent! The atmosphere is what makes this place. It is exceptional.

Disliked: The wifi is pretty horrible in that it drops in and out frequently. The free breakfast is very basic (bread, jam and coffee).

Liked: I stayed at all three Wild Rover hostels and this one was the most relaxed, while still maintaining a very social atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help - a special mention to Rosse in reception - whose organisation, willingness to help and sense of humour contributed to an excellent stay.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Pool and location

Disliked: The staff are terrible. The bar staff were (mostly) rude and surly the whole time...especially the French ones! I could barely get served some of the time, let alone see one of them crack a smile! Staff are such an important part of any business - crazy that the owner of the hostel is happy to have staff that are constantly rude to their customers. Also had several items added on to my bill that I did not purchase (the staff seemed happy to put cigarrettes on my bill, even though I don't smoke) so check that before leaving.
