Liked: My new favourite hostel! I've visited Cuzco a few times and stayed in a handful of hostels but nothing can compare to the experience i had at Wild Rover. Its clean, safe, the staff are awesome and even went out of there way to get me a bottom bunk. The best nights out i've had in Cuzco have started (and sometimes ended) in the Wild Rover bar. Its in a really central location so it was easy to do sightseeing wilst avoiding the dodgy areas of the city. I'll definately be going back next time i'm in Cuzco. Increadble fun and super comfy beds to sleep it off on.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: On site bar with plenty of people and specials to keep you entertained. Adequate locker spaces, charging lockers, on site trip advising.

Disliked: "Free" breakfast consists of bread and butter with coffee. Horrible bar service when it comes to food. Tried to flag down the bartender as he glanced at me and back down to his phone.

Liked: Really cool place - walking distance to the center of Cusco, really secure - security at the door, lockers in the dorms and lockers to charge your phones etc in the living area. The beds are pretty much brand new and comfy - also slightly bigger than most hostel dorm beds! You get a good breakfast included, the bar is good fun and there are loads of other backpackers here to meet.

Disliked: They have a travel agent, but they can only give you info about Cusco, not further afield (like Arequipa). Also there's no kitchen to make your own food, just the bar food you can buy.

Liked: nothing in particular, quite noisy by night

Disliked: when I had to pay, considering I made the reservation in dollars but the payment was in local currency, they charged me more than what expected. In Cusco you can easily find many hostels cheaper than this and much more "peruvian"
