booked 2 beds in a six bed dorm for me and my wife. I was put into one room and my wife another. the room my wife was put into was shared with staff who were in and out all night. the girl at reception told me that this was normal and that they send me and email to explain this might happen. it happened 4 other people I talked to in the hostel the same night. I woke up in the middle of the night to see a guy pissing in the room right by my bag. it took over 30mins to get someone to clean it up.

It was my second time at Pariwana in Lima and after traveling to almost all southamerican countries I can certainly say that it is the best hostel on the continet. You won't find something else like it. Nothing to complain about: great atmosphere, perfect food, comfortable beds, central location and the best staff ever. A hostel with character and style! Strongly recommended!!!

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Pariwana and would definitely recommend to others. The rooftop terrace and enthusiastic staff were real highlights. If anything they could do with a few more fans in the bedrooms, and cheaper beer. Everyone loves cheaper beer!

Absolute forbidden to bring your own alcohol to the hostel, however seems fine to sit around smoking massive joints!! Shows that staff is more concerned about money. Hostel itself is ok but Lima is a bit disappointing and would not recommend more than 1-2 nights! Staff in reception is good and helpful. Do not use their laundry service, clothes will come back still dirty!

The best location in Miraflores, right next to Kennedy Park. Stuff was helpful, mediocre Wi-Fi connection, simple breakfast ( but you can order something from their kitchen, so this shouldn't be a problem), nice common area and pretty good bar, lot of bathrooms and shower ( all in good condition). I enjoyed my stay here. Good for solo travelers to meet fellow backpackers.

the place is fine and located really good. But the staff is awful! When we arrived we didn't feel welcome at all, i thought maybe the staffmember was busy when we were about to check in, but figured out he didn't care about our first impression at all. Some of the other staff members was really arrogant and rude as well, and therefore would I never recommend this place.

The only complaint is that shower in room 13 is not that good. Hot water leaks on the wall and burn your feet.

Awesome hostel! If you don't like to party then this is not the place for you. Drinking games and ping pong all day long. Great friendly environment and very close to the main strip of bars and restaurants. The showers and bathrooms were clean and always had hot water. Incredibly comfortable beds and a great place to stay.

Pariwana in Lima is a great hostel with a very helpful staff. recommend staying here because of the excellent food they offer, the clean rooms and open outdoor terrace. It's a great hostel to stay at if you are traveling alone, and the hostel organizes daily events for you to partake in. I would the hostel, but I would advice any person to stay a maximum of 3 nights, as there is not an over abundance of exhilarating things to see in Lima. The hostel really made the stay in Lima fun.

One of the best hostels I stayed it. Staff is friendly and helpful and in Miraflores are a lot of things to do. Also easy to get to the center by public transportation.

In the heart of Miraflores, Pariwana is a nice and fun hostel to chill between adventurous cities (e.g. Cusco, Arequipa). The staff is extremely professional and fun (especially the Jefe de Actividades Antonella) so there's always something happening in the evenings.

Hard to say anything really negative about this hostel. Great place to stay in an awesome location with excellent facilities. Minor negative would be there was only one staff member on one morning dealing with all the checkouts resulting in a huge lineup and :30 mins waiting to checkout... Still would highly recommend it.

Nice hostel in a great location in Miraflores. Staff were very helpful. Stayed in10 bed dorm with no a/c, only two fans that didnt work very well. Could do with upgrading these as Lima was really hot! Really good bar and common area
