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!

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.

The hostel was a wonderful place to stay. The only thing was that events that the hostel listed that was going to happen did not occur. I was expecting a game night to occur upstairs but there was nothing set up when I arrived at the specified time

It's not a very good hostel. Staff was one of the worst I've had contact. It seemed as if they were there obligated. Not nice! But the location is very good, at the center of Miraflores. The rooms were small. I stayed at a 6 person room and the were not enough space for opening our bags.

Everything was really great! We arrived early that morning and even though we were only staying one night, we were treated to two free breakfasts! The location is good, the staff are really friendly and the beds were super comfortable! Overall, a really good hostel.

Large and well equipped hostel in a great central location. The roof terrace and bar are a big bonus! Unfortunately check in wasn't until 1pm so when i arrived at 7am after a night flight they made me wait around for hours before they would give me a bed!

Pariwana was our first hostel after arriving in Peru (by airplane) and it had everything we needed. They offer tea all day long and a very mediocre breakfast. Every night one of the staff would offer us free shots; they try to be a party hostel but only really get the party going on the weekends. During the week the rooftop terrace is nice for having drinks with friends, but nothing too extravagant. We met some great people.

Huge hostel with lots of travelers. Excellent facilities, clean. The staff were super helpful and accommodating. We were allowed to keep our luggage at their hostel for a couple days while we were away from Lima. A warning for those who like quiet atmospheres: this hostel is very loud! At least when they are having a big party. But for those who like loud, it's a lot of fun, and there are always activities going on. Great value!

Good location and friendly hostel. It's a party hostel so expect loud music all day.

Great hostel. Central location. Friendly staff. Some of which live in the dorms so are very easily approachable. I met many like minded travellers here and had a great time. It was a great start to 6 weeks in South America. Showers ok, breakfast similar to most other hostels in South America. Very nice roof terrace with seating and table tennis.

There's a good atmosphere, I would call it like a Party Hostel. Staff was nice. Great activities, they give you a tour of Old Lima Center for (S/.5.00 -> money is for the bus you take to get there and go back to hostel). In front of Kennedy park.

Beds were super comfortable, breakfast was good, location was awesome. Only complaint would be that the staff seemed unwilling to help with questions related to transportation and places to visit. They basically deferred to the travel agent, who simply provided information to suit the needs of the agency.

This is a good party hostel. Good location and nice rooftop. A little pricey and the bathrooms are not the nicest, but overall good hostel.

Hostel was very clean and the beds were mega comfy. Extra bonus was the kitchen, good food for an okay price. Downside was there was music constantly playing which made socializing/playing guitar difficult. Also "free breakfast" is the Peru normal. Bread and jam.
