Does what it says on the box (everything). Very professional operation... if you're on a budget though, you might want to do your drinking elsewhere (you pay a premium over the bar - ie. 150% mark ups! - and you're not allowed to bring in alcohol from outside).

I had a great time at Pariwana Hostel, very well sited in Lima. It was my first trip alone and I felt really safe and comfortable there. I'd like to mention Staff Luis who helped me a lot giving me great hints about the city and always willing to help. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a good time! Comfy beds, lots of activities going on, nice terrace, met a lot of nice people! Not the best kitchen tho and the beers in the bar are quite expensive for a hostel bar imo, lots of happy hours tho!

Nice Partying hostel. Nice Staff Jordan Zole and Raul are amazing.. great food is available around the corner inside the alley.. clean bathroom and kitchen. cleaning staff is very hospitable ..people tends to stay in hostel due many activitiesThey have to keep you inside the hostel and spend money on beer and food, which is a great business move. if you looking for party is the one of the places to be..

Hi, I do apologize about this trouble, we do understand your hassle. We have this location because we want you to get easily to the most important attractions of Miraflores. But, sometimes this could be a problem because of the traffic. Right now, we are working on this topic and we are getting new cortains that block the noise from the street. We are also working to improve the noise of the terrace. Thank you for giving us a review! Best Regards. Maritza Conde

Really good roof space with lots of seating, ping pong table, which is attached to bar and pool table, big screen area which shows sports. Staff encourage socialising and rooms are comfortable

Nice Hostel in Lima, but not as good as the Pariwana Hostel in Cuzco. It was clean and it is Located in the middle of Miraflores. Good facilities but the staff seemed a bit overchallenged.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Pariwana in Lima. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. In addition to the free breakfast, the food available on the menu is excellent and moderately-priced. Although the terrace is quite lively in the evenings, my dorm room was quiet and got pretty good internet access. Lockers with electrical outlets inside were a real plus. The cleaning staff worked constantly to keep everything immaculate. A real five-star hostel. I plan to stay there again.

Reasonably priced hostel, rooms aren't too cramped. Some of them face out onto the roundabout though, so they can be noisy at night. The rooftop area and food were good. However the bar was very expensive (beer was more expensive even than on the beach, and the "happy hour" was 3 for the price of 2.5). The manager was the kind of person who constantly offers girls free drinks if they'll take off their tops and pose for a picture. The last bit made me stay elsewhere when I returned to Lima.

Great hostel in Miraflores. Great social atmosphere. Dorms were crowded and hot, not pleasant, but the rest of the hostel made up for it. There are cheaper places to stay in Lima but I would probably come back.

This is a party hostel. If this is what you like then come here. If you like peace and quiet in the evenings, choose somewhere else. I loved my stay. The atmosphere is great and I met a lot of chill people. I just recommend ear plugs since the rooms face the street and the windows are open at night to keep the rooms cool

Awesome hostel. They airport service that they arranged was flawless. They offer laundry service, which was painless and incredibly helpful. The rooms were clean (they make the beds every day), and the washrooms were well kept. The food is really well priced, and quite good. The atmosphere is good, and we loved the rooftop patio to relax on. It is right across from cat park (parque de Kennedy) which we enjoyed going to.
