Liked: The location was excellent and as value for money goes it was good. If you want to meet people this is a good spot to do so.

Disliked: The majority of the staff while I was there were rude and unfriendly, especially the western staff working the bar. Equally, as its a Wild Rover, there are lots of offers everyday. However, lots of these are not what they seem. For example, an all you can eat all day BBQ for 18 soles was actually a one hour BBQ with a single plate of food. This sort of thing happened all the time.

Liked: Great banter, the bar staff were lovely and a lot of fun! They have a great pool area which is perfect for sunbathing (for those sun junkies). Food is great too and its two minutes away from the central plaza, and there are loads of little shops with the essentials across the road.

Disliked: Its too hard to leave!

Liked: Good shower, quite clean rooms and bathrooms, good spaces to relax like the tv room and the pool area.

Disliked: The pub of this hostel is locatted just below the rooms, so we could hear everything from there... too noise! So many teenagers doing nothing insteed of drinking and annoying the others guests. The wi-fi just DOES NOT WORK... anywhere! And the staff do nothing to help you any time. Plug-ins just downstairs, inside small lockers at the reception, where you need to have your padlock to leave something into... not able to charge your phone besides you at the room, for exemple... or use your hair dryer at the toilet. The mattress was old and warped...

Liked: The bar area/bartenders were very friendly

Disliked: In an unfortunate turn of events I fractured my ankle while at Wild Rover so I was there for ~5 days. While some of the staff was helpful (Ben at the bar), many of them were rude and completely unhelpful.
