The top tourist destination in Peru and one of the most frequented in all of Latin America, Cusco has an overwhelming number of lodging options to suit any taste. Even when you narrow your options down, it still feels like too many, but worry not. We’ve made a selection of hostels that are perfect for those of you looking to party in Cusco.
Loki is one of the more popular hostels in all of Peru, with locations in all of Peru’s main tourist destinations. It also has a reputation as one of Peru’s best party hostels, while also offering a premier hostel service. Some of the highlights are the constant themed parties, which are a great way to meet people, plus a ping-pong table, barbecue, beer pong, and a perfect location within walking distance of the Plaza de Armas.
It’s hard to beat this beautiful hostel. It’s in one of the large colonial buildings Cusco is famous for, with a huge courtyard, which is where the partying goes down. They have everything you could want in terms of location, just a short walk from the Plaza de Armas.
Wild Rover is another hostel giant, with locations in all the most popular tourist destinations in Peru. They know how to throw a party, which is why they remain a very popular option in every location, and their Cusco location is one of their finest. Their new multimillion dollar facility is everything you could want in a hostel, combining comfort and affordable luxury. Every night is a party night and, with a bar, good amenities, and one of the best views in all of Cusco, there’s nothing not to like about Wild Rover.
This building is one of the nicest you’ll stay at in Peru for the price. Housed in an old colonial building, the hostel really gives you the feeling of being in Cusco, a city in Peru that is famed for its unique architecture. They have a card table, pool table, foosball table, and a bar – all the things that make a place more fun to stay in, and prerequisites of any party hostel. It’s one of the closest hostels in the city to the beautiful Plaza de Armas, a location it’s impossible to beat.
Dragonfly is another of the hostel giants with a well-known name. They are located very close to the city center, which really is a must. The hostel is cute and charming with a colonial courtyard, multiple levels, and great beers at the bar, something they pride themselves on. It’s a perfect place for meeting fellow travelers but is a bit more mellow than, for example, Loki.
The Point is the final party hostel chain to make the list, and has everything you’d expect from a classic party hostel. They have a cool outdoor, grassy patio area, which is hard to find in Cusco. The pool table is also a highlight – when isn’t a pool table a highlight? – but you need to get there early to claim your spot. There are nightly parties, especially on the weekends, and this is the chain’s newest location in Peru, so the amenities are on the newer side, something that is always very much appreciated when you’ve been staying at hostels that have seen some wear and tear.
If you’re staying in Cusco, why not stay at “Inca Wild” and party Andean-style? Like all party hostels, they have the essentials: ping-pong table, beer pong tables, foosball table, bar, and barbecue. They also boast a pool table, which is a great addition to any place that claims to be a party hostel.
