One of the best hostels ive stayed in! Not much to do in Lima though
Excellent, it was better if the rooms be biger but the stsff so good which is dosnt matter.
Great hostel with good atmosphere, the rooftop bar was a real asset! The noise of the rooftop bar didn't disturb any guest sleeping in the dorms/rooms. The front dorm (facing a very busy part of miraflores) was very noisy due to traffic and single glass windows. Ear plugs were definitely necessary. Good large lockers with space for backpacks in the dorms and plugs for charging your phone.
Great place to meet fellow travelers
Great time here, if you are in Lima. The location is ideal!

Fabulous hostel with a great atmosphere. Perfect if you're travelling alone as there is so much communal space it's impossible not to meet people!
I enjoyed my stay. Very sociable with a great bar & restaurant on the roof. The reception staff were helpful but some bar staff (who I think are volunteers) were a bit drippy & there was often a bit of a wait. The food served was fantastic & very cheap, although I begrudge having to pay for breakfast when it says it's included, the only bit included was the bread rolls. My room on the front was noisy & bright, under the bar & overlooks a large traffic junction with thin windows & curtains.
This was a good hostel - people were nice and super easy to meet people and make friends. Place is pretty clean. Lockers with outlets for each bed. Beds are comfortable. Rooms are a little dark and the rooms upstairs are right next to the club and super loud. No AC and no towels but they are available for rent. Could use more bathrooms with showers in the upstairs. Overall very nice hostel and nice people.
This is definitely a party hostel and that's not a bad thing. It's great for meeting people if you're a solo traveler. But, the average age is 22 and it's always a loud drunk party. Wifi worked great in my 6 bed dorm.
Good location, aceragem breakfast. They tried to make a party hostel but the party did not go on as long as most o people remain seated. I hated the room, six bed in a tiny space where is supposed to have four. The room was terribly warm due to a lot o people in a small space and lack ou a proper air circulation.
Prawn is in the heart of Miraflores district, tons of people around, felt very safe (wristband needed for entry, big lockers for backpacks in shared rooms) and the hostel had a wonderfully fun, welcoming vibe. The free breakfast was bread/jam/cereal/coffee/coca tea. Bathrooms generally clean, showers were hot! Had quite a party vibe if that's what you're looking for, drinks and games and all on the roof almost every night. Staff helpful and accessible.

Love this place! Lively atmosphere, helpful staff, awesome lay out of the hostel with many places to chill and meet people.
The rooms n the side of the main road are really loud (maybe put a double layer lf double glazing in there?), but other than that it's fairly faultless, great location, and fun.
Excellent place to stay! Very chilled out, staff are fun and friendly.
Great hostel, great staff, great location. I enjoyed everything about this hostel. The security was a bit strict at times, but it makes the place safer. Favourite part of the hostel was the ping pong table; it definitely builds community. And Lucy, best receptionist ever!
The reception girls are great . Help you in everything you need. improve your wi fi .
I am thoroughly convinced that pariwana hostels are the best in Peru. Almost cried when I had to leave. Amazing people are here!
The staff were friendly and accommodating. I stayed at Pariwana twice during my trip to Peru and during my first stay, they had double-booked my bed and had to move me to the 10-bed coed dorm. Although inconvenient, they did handle it well, offering me a discount and free shot at the bar. My second stay was flawless. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. Great upstairs patio bar and organized events.
Any place that has an arcade machine with Mario kart on it is always going to be awesome. The food was great from the bar, a good brekky, nice staff and a comfy bed. Bruno, who ran our tour to the old city was an absolute legend as well.
Great hostel- nice common area, clean, good bar & food, helpful staff, good location. Only issue was how loud the music was- fine if your room is away from the bar but otherwise abit annoying!
