We were only here for one night but the place was very nice, clean, helpful staff, warm showers, comfy beds, big lockers with outlets in them. The bar area looked very social and fun. Great stopover.

With only one night stay in Lima, this place made all the chaos outside just disappear. Located in the Miraflores district you are pretty much walking distance to good bars, restaurants, and clubs. But, if your like me and shun large cities you can stay in Pariwana and not need to venture out. The terrace lounge is large, spacious and clean, with a credit system setup so you have no need to flash your money out etc.

This place was great! Definitely more of a "party" hostel but not too crazy like others. You have the chance to meet new people. I was very satisfied with Pariwana Lima and would stay again if I'm ever in Lima in the future.

Nice hostel, very good for solo travelers as the atmosphere is perfect! Bed were comfortable. Bathroom facilities are somewhat lacking in number and I had a cold shower. It was clean tho. Close to restaurants and to the metro-bus, which is good! Great hostel!

Well located in Miraflores, nice rooms and common areas, clean and neat. Was there for just one night and could not socialise, but had a really nice atmosphere. Cool to meet people!

The Hostel was really clean and staff always ready to help us. The location in Miraflores is great! The only thing I was a bit disapointed is that I was expecting a bit more of entertaiment at the bar. Thought it was more a party hostel. Even though it was a nice stay. Can't forget to mension that the towels, tooth brushes and other facilities we could buy there were really helpful for me and my friends.

Pariwana is a wonderful hostel but I had a few problems. The hostel and it's facilities are amazing: great mattress, bar, pingpong table, planned events, but they lost 2 laundry items, they VASTLY overprice every tour (watch the exchange rate and the online price) and bus you try to book, and one of my tours didn't show. When I asked for a refund, they offered me another tour and said it was the same price: not even close. Made me waste a lot of time.

Dear guest, In reference to the laundry service, they do it separately item by item. We are really careful with all the items that our guests send to the laundry, the sheet that you fill with the amounts of clothing is the same that the laundry send back. About the tours and the prices, we work with a travel agency that has different types of tours and because they offer different services it's well known that they will charge you for an extra fee. Best regards Eric M. Hostel Manager

I personally didnt enjoy my stay at the Pariwana. I shared a room with a girl who insisted on having the room window wide open open to the main plaza. This was not only unsafe but incredibly noisy. I asked the staff for some assistance and they said they would come and speak to the girl but never did. Consequently I didnt get any sleep.

Dear guest, We are aware of the situation that you had with the person you were sharing room with. One member of our staff went into the room and you agreed on having the window open partially. Because the other person said she needed some air We are sorry if you think we didn't act properly we will be more careful. Best regards, Eric M. Hostel Manager

It's just a big hostel with very good location. Personally, I'd rather to stay in a nice cost one.

Food they served for dinner was really bad. I don't think I would serve to my dog. One night someone slept on my bed so I slept on a vacant bed. They wanted to charge me for two. The guy at the bar does not give a welcoming vibe.

The hostel is really close to the beach and cliffside mall and a large park which is really cool for views of the coast along Miraflores. Also the area is a short cheap bus ride away from the main historical plaza. The place was clean and it wasn't loud or anything. Also the area the hostel is in is probably the safest area in Lima.

Very comfortable beds with two pillows. Hot showers. The staff was very helpful with suggestions of things to do in town. Laundry service available. The beds are away from the hang out areas and it is generally quiet.

Didn't know what to expect but I was completely blown away by Pariwana! What a great place with great staff, excellent food, and a secure location for backpackers to stay. 10/10 would definitely stay again!

Very clean and nice place. The rooms to Kennedy Park are loud and it's hard to find rest..... Better windows for insulation would be nice

I forgot some staff in the Pariwana Hostel in Lima. I called them, the staff looked for it and finally sent it to the Pariwana Hostel in Cusco! This shows how nice the staff is!
