Maybe they should have a "serious room" where you can't hear music at night as we were here for work and would have preferred something a bit more quiet, but the security and cleanliness made up for it! :D

Positives: The hostel is very nice and provides Wi-Fi. The location is close to Parque Kennedy, which is a nice area in Miraflores. Negatives: I reserved a taxi beforehand, but upon arriving at the airport, there was no taxi. I had to call and ask them to send the taxi. The taxi was a barely working, station wagon and the driver spent the whole time on the phone. Cost 60 soles. You can get a nice, SAFE taxi for about 50-55 soles. It doesn't make sense to spend more for less quality.

It's the "IN" place to stay. I've already booked for another stay when I return from Cusco.

If you want to party this is the place to be!Unfortunately I had just got to town from a 3 week trip in Ecuador&all I wanted to do was sleep on the Sat night I arrived.It was impossible to sleep bc its in the center of Miraflores where everyone is both partying in the hostel & on the streets right outside.It was so loud that even though I tried,I was unable to sleep. People were partying until 6 am & the drunk yelling & music were so loud right outside my window. No bueno. Recommend for partiers

I stayed at Pariwana-Lima this past weekend and had a great time. The facilities were great, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the bar and kitchen were very enjoyable. The location was great too, right in the middle of Parque Kennedy in Miraflores. Top notch Hostel. One staff member in particular stood out above all the rest, although all were great. His name was Eddy. Eddy was a security guard and made sure we had a fantastic trip. Eddy is the best!

Comfortable hostel with a great terrace. Big so less personal than others but still great. Somewhat of a party place but my dorm was quiet

Really great place. Dorms were thoroughly cleaned and beds are made every day. The staff are very nice--one of the servers was good at getting different groups to talk to one another, then the bartender ended up taking a bunch of us out and getting us into a club for free. The entrance is a locked door that you need to get buzzed into and there are lockers in the rooms. The bar on top has a ping pong table, fusbol table, and a tv room with lots of movies.

This is the best hostel I have stayed in in Peru. Great security, with sockets in lockers to charge devices, and little extras such as a towel and soap in the girls dorm. as well as a hair dryer in the ensuite. Reception are very helpful and there is a good atmosphere. The only negative is that my dorm was really noisy, both from the bar upstairs and outside until at least 2am. Saying this though, when I return to Lima in a few days, I still want to stay in the same dorm..

Excellent location in Miraflores. Staff was helpful and I was able to leave my luggage as I arrived early. Lockers in room had plugs so you could leave your electronics charging without worry.

My first hostel experience and my friends have warned me it only goes down hill from here- modern fittings, very clean and safe, fantastic food and bar, best of all they have cultivated a very welcoming atmosphere that makes it easy to make friends! I was here 2 days solo and met so many wonderful people. Central location in miraflores, walkable to most everything. Only negative would be the front desk staff who would rather have been somewhere else, but the bar and tour staff rocked!

Good hostel in Miraflores area, good security and nice rooftop common area. Reception was always busy but only a slight annoyance when we needed to leave

Staff were rude- no early check in, ever. Food at the bar was average. In the middle of Miaflores. Not nearly as impressive as the hostel in Cusco.

Dear Guest Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately we couldn't make you the check in as soon as you get to the Hostel, sometimes we are expecting the check out to send our cleaning team. But we understand your disgust and we will try to find a solution for it. We wish that you were able to stay longer with us and show a bit more of the facilities and different activities that we have in the Hostel. We hope to see you on another occasion and serve you better Regards Head of Front Desk

We stayed in a 6 person dorm and we're happy with it so we booked again for an 8 person dorm on our way back through Lima. We are happy with it again. Clean beds, nice staff and fun hang out area. Good hostel!

This place is great - clean, safe, good atmosphere, good location. And super helpful staff - I checked in very early before check-in and they stored my bags, gave me tips on what to see in Lima, and let me eat breakfast on arrival. Breakfast is good, the rest of the menu is cheap and yummy. The only drawback was some issues with a long term guest (who seemed to also be working for the hostel) leaving his wet towel and his clothes and underwear all over my bed and area as well as his own.
