Great terrace, great atmosphere, sockets in the locker!!!
Good hostel, very well located near public transportation, pubs and other facilities. Pariwana is more a "party hostel" where you can meet new people, but can have some trouble in having a good night of sleep. Rooms were clean and beds were confortable. Bathroom had a good shower. The staff was very helpful, giving good indications about transportation in Lima and in Peru as well.
Great location right in Miraflores, alright breakfast buns and cereal. Great atmosphere, good food in bar. Would stay again
Great place to stay. Located in a very nice and safe neighbourgood with a supermarket and banks located a few minutes away. They facilities were nicely maintained and clean. Great roof top terrace to hang out in. Staff were very helpful. The travel agent near the reception was very helpful too. Big lockers in each room with sockets inside, which was a nice touch. I would suggest taking ear plugs if you want to sleep as the place can get noisy....
Very nice hostel. very friendly atmosphere. I love to stay again.

The Pariwana Lima is exactly how a Youth Hostel should be: super central location, any kind of facilities around it (ATMs, supermarkets, cinemas, shops, taxis, clubs etc..), clean, safe, with big and comfy beds (letely we've been missing them so much...!), loads of nice people, activities and stuff to do. Only downside, the computers in the common internet area were pretty slow and needed to be updated (which is useful if you want to use your dropbox or some other apps). Definitely recommended
A fabulous hostel! I have already recommended it to others. The location is prime, the accomodations are great, the atmopshere is fun, and the staff is very helpful and welcoming. There is also easy-access to Downtown Lima by the bus (Metropolitano) which I highly recommend doing in addition to exploring the Mira Flores area.
Amazing hostel! Loved my stay and looking forward to stay in Pariwana Cusco! Lovely staff!
One of the best hostels I have stayed in - they have pretty much thought of everything here. Great social atmosphere, amenities and helpful staff. Highly recommended.
Good central location, had lockers in the rooms, cleaned regularly. The atmosphere was ok, quite difficult to talk to some people and the staff could be a bit difficult to approach. I will say they had the most comfortable bed we have stayed in sofar in South America!
In two words FAN, TÁSTIC.

Excellent location right in the centre of Miraflores; same comfy beds as the Pariwana in Cuzco; spacious rooms with plug sockets in the lockers; good roof terrace and bar (although the food is poor- go to La Lucha across the road instead!)
Great location with a great bar a rooftop area. Staff were helpful and friendly. The beds were comfortable and warm. The lockers were really good but only one of our lockers had power to charge valuables but there were plenty of other power points in the room. Would highly recommend staying here.
The receptionist is a trainee and really slow. Pariwana has a lot of small features, bracelet, drinks,towel,you can buy water,storage is with ticket, this took us hours before we checked out and check in because we had the same one. And we booked by hostelworld and something went wrong in the reservation. We were separated as only one bed was reserved. And three bathroom/toilets for 50 beds on the reception floor is not enought
This was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The beds were amazing: large and great mattresses. They cleaned the rooms and changed/fixed up (I'm not sure) your sheets daily. At night the staff would hang out with you and have organized events. I wish every hostel was like this! The only bad thing to say is that the free breakfast was very basic. BUT, if you wanted to, they have a great breakfast menu you can order from. It's just not free.
one of the best hostel I ever stayed in. great staff and location. the best is the bathroom.
A big and profesional hostal in Limas Miraflores district. A perfect place to start your Peru journey in. Good and helpful staff and in a safe area of Lima.
High restaurant prices (meals are not all that) and no credit cards accepted.These are main issues which could be addressed to.
Loved the place, great atmosphere, fantastic staff. This is the first hostel we stayed in on arriving in South America and it set our hostel expectations extremely high and at a standard that most others afterwards couldn't live up to.
