Such a great place to stay in Lima. The staff were helpful, everything was very clean, and the rooftop bar was excellent. Stay here!
i have been to lima over 20 times and this is by far the best spot ive found, especially for the price. despite the size, cleanliness was high, good breakfast, excellent location, super safe, HOT showers, good wifi, nice big lockers, excellent friendly and helpful staff. if youre not planning to party, simply bring a pair of ear plugs :)
We had a great time at Pariwana Lima. Excellent location, food in the hostel is fab and the rooms clean! Would definitely recommend!

Perfect terrace, nice staff, nice rooms, perfect location. The only thing it was not that nice was the bathroom (or at least the one i used): the shower was not that easy in order to get good water temprature (went from very cold to super hot) In spite of that small detail, it was everything perfect!.. just book it!
Really great hostel! Staff is super nice and will help you with everything that you need. Great location. Also, we went on 3 tours/events planned at night by the hostel that were awesome. The restaurant at the hostel is also delicious!
I was there a total of 6 nights in 3 times. From the 3rd night, the staff knew my name, and I am not the guy particularly remarkable, I just say "Hola" in the morning. Pariwana is an amazing place, like a beehive : there is always someone at the desk, day and night, and very helpfull. It's super clean, it's cheap, the food home cooked is excellent (there is always 2 or 3 local cookers in the kitchen) , there is always good music at the lounge.
Pariwana is a very good hostel. I'll indicate to my friends certainly.

I cannot recommend Piriwana enough. The atmosphere is great. The staff is super friendly and helpful; they go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. Located centrally in the heart of Miraflores, the location is absolutely superb! The price is just slightly more than some other hostels, but it's more than worth the money. The only drawback would be the party atmosphere, but if that's what you're after, then this place is perfect. Highly recommended.
The location of the hostel is excellent. At the heart of Miraflores, every best thing in the city is accessible at walking distance from the hostel. Also the Pariwana map is very well designed and it gives a great way to roam around the city. The staff were also very helpful with the information.
Great hostel with a central location. Easy to get around and meet new people. If you are looking for a daily activities to socialise with other travels its your pick.
Great hostel, helpful staff and well located in a nice area
a bit bad shower and if you want a good night sleep, avoid this place; otherwise you would have a great time here.
the hostel has great facilities and there's a good crowd. there are also fun events organised every day, so it was super easy to meet new people!
The hostel is extremely cold, we slept with our clothes on. The blankets were heavy but not warm. It was very noisy, especially during the drinking games.
Really fun hostel. Stayed here over the Peru Independence Day long weekend and had a great time. Awesome bar, rooftop leisure area and just general vibe.
It was very noisy, in the dorm people keep shouting, walking about, putting on the light, leaving the door to the corridor open and thus to the party upstairs. It wasn't possible to go to sleep early. I think it would be possible to have a rule that the dorms are quiet after 10 or 11 PM, and still have the party upstairs. it wasn't the best choice for a hostel after a 12 hour flight and a 7 hour time difference.
CLEAN BATHROOMS AND HOT WATER! Not to mention basic traveller needs pretty much all covered. Beds come with TWO PILLOWS omg. You can lock up your electronics while you charge them - definitely do this. It's safe but no matter the hostel, electronics are always being stolen. Drinks at the bar are a bit expensive so take advantage of happy hour or venture to the center for food.
If the thought of beer pong every night until two in the morning sounds awesome, then Pariwana is for you. If, like me, the thought sets your teeth on edge, then, uh, you might be better served elsewhere. Certainly sleeping on the top floor is difficult because of all the noise until two in the AM. However, that being said, the place is super clean and the staff is first rate (volunteers less so). The best room is 15. It's a medium, more aerated and quieter than anything else in the hostel.
Super awesome staff- Really cool vibe and such comfy beds

Great hostel with a party atmosphere, but it's still easy to get to sleep early if you need to. Each bed has a locker available to use, and if you want more security there are smaller lockers in the lobby where you can keep your comp, passport, phone, or other valuables. They have a travel agent in house to use and a security gaurd at the front door. One staff member was short with me when I asked to have a key to my room, a reasonable request I thought, but other than that everyone was great!
