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 :)

Dear guest, Thanks for recognizing the permanent work we make at Pariwana to keep our facilities in high standards for the comfort of all our guests. If you are back to Lima, you know Pariwana is your home. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


Really great hostel. Central location in miraflores with great free activities like old town tours and salsa lessons! Breakfast which is included is cereals and breads with tea and coffee and you can have as much as you want. The wifi is very good and the showers are hot! The only slight negative for me was the size of the dorm (i was in a 6 bed) but who spends much time in thee anyway! They have lockers in the rooms with power plugs inside - genius! I thoroughly recommend this place.


Love staying at both Lima and Cusco Pariwana Hostels. Maybe you can give discounts to people who stay at both places.


Both locations in Lima and Cuzco are equally great! From location to atmosphere to Staff.... I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a hostel. One of the best Ive stayed at and the staff go out of their way to be friendly and help. Even the food was pretty decent.


We had a great time at Pariwana Lima. Excellent location, food in the hostel is fab and the rooms clean! Would definitely recommend!

Dear guest, Thanks for sharing your good experience at Pariwana. This motivates our team to continue working even harder. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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!

Hi, We are very glad to know that you enojyed the hostel and the events we make for all of our guests. We will keep working in our service. Hope to see you again. Best Regards. Maritza Conde Reception Manager


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.

Dear guest, We are glad to know that you had a good experience with us! Send all your friends to Pariwana :), we will be waiting for them and do our best so they can have a good time! Cheers, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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.

Dear guest, Thanks for emphasizing the professionalism of our staff. We have some policies to avoid the noise late at night, we will continue working on it. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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 really good social bar upstairs to meet others and share a few drinks and stories.


a bit bad shower and if you want a good night sleep, avoid this place; otherwise you would have a great time here.

Dear guest, We are sorry for the inconvenience that you had while you stayed with us. We take your review seriously and we will do our best to improve our facilities and service. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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.

Dear guest, Thanks for your review, we are sorry for the inconveniences that you had while you stayed at Pariwana. It's winter season in Lima, the temperature is very different from what we have experienced in previous years, we will consider your comment about the blankets. We have some rules to avoid having noise during the night, we will dou our best to reduce it. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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.

Dear guest, Thanks for the time you took to write your review about your stay at Pariwana. We have a QUIET ZONE policy that starts at 10 pm where the guests can't make noise in the halls next to the dorms. It's definitely our job to be constantly checking the compliance of this rule. We will consider your comment in order to improve our service. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager


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.
