too big!! not my type of hostel, commercially run, all the services you would expect,but wifi was slow due to the amount of people in hostel, i prefer smaller hostels where you can interact with people better

Had a great time while staying here on both ends of my trip. The staff is great and you are sure to meet other travelers who are looking for a good time!

Location is a little hectic but nice having Kennedy park close as a reference point. It's just far from great things to see and do around lima. Wifi worked well (even in the dorms!) hot clean showers, comfortable beds. It's great having breakfast available until 12 if you plan to stay up late! It is loud close to the terrace but it's full of people having fun so hard to complain.

Listen up! If you want to meet people, have a great time, eat great well priced food, sleep in a comfy bed (with two pillows!), and lock your electronics in a cubby to charge than this is the place for you! Pruno and the other staff are a blast! The atmosphere is super social and fun but also very secure. Ps. Like all of lima its load at night, bring ear plugs. I think the bigger dorms are also warmer so a medium dorm is the way to go in my opinion.

Really enjoyed the 2 nights I spent here. The room was clean, the atmosphere on the patio was always awesome, and the staff were great. I'd definitely go back!

The best location in Miraflores. Great staff. It almost doesn't feel like a Hostel

It is an excellent place for young backpackers, cheap, nice and complete... Everything was good, specially the atmosphere, but during the night, my room D was really hot.

It's a great hostel that has a lot going on. There's definitely a strong drinking atmosphere throughout the day, so if you're not planning on being drunk all the time, it might not be the best. I was super tired one night and went to sleep early, but people came into the room drunk, turned the light on, and was being very loud despite knowing that people were sleeping in the room. Upstairs, there's always a party. It's also very difficult to sleep because the hostel is located on the main street

Pariwana has been my favourite hostel so far in my trip across South America. Good value food, great social area and really nice staff. The beds a big and comfy. Looking forward to my stay in the Pariwana in cusco !

Nice terrace. Friendly stuff. Good beds. Average breakfast. It's extremely hot in and if you have to sleep in the room number 1 it's going to be extremely loud as well. Noise from the street until 5am. You can charge your phone inside the locker.

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!

2nd time to stay. Arrived on St Patricks day and was given a discount for being Irish :) Maps provided are invaluable. Little touches like power pts in the lockers are great. Staff are excellent. All of them are genuinely friendly and helpful. Lucy at reception was awesome and ensured I got my taxi to the bus terminal on time. Hold onto her. Clean. Good location and secure.

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.
