Since Cusco is such a big tourist attraction and most of this tourist are young adults you can guess that the nightlife in this city is wild.
If you are looking for fellow backpackers in the same plan as you the best place would be some of this backpacker hostels: Pariwana, Millhouse or The Point, there are probably a bunch more and the party here is not that wild.
In the other hand we have the craziest parties in Cusco and they are in Wild Rover, don’t get fooled, this might be a backpacker hostel but their bar is big and full of fun. As soon as you get in there you will see people dancing on top of the bar, screaming, drinking shots,etc. The party on most backpackers finishes at 2-3 a.m. where they will take you to the most famous Cusco nightclub, Changos, get ready to get hot and i mean really hot, this place is underground and full of people, but can be really fun if you don’t mind these.
