Cool hostel with a great location. Lively bar with plenty of fun including drinking games and table tennis competitions. Clean and large rooms and bathrooms. It was a great place to stay, only thing I didn't like was the choice of music being played nearly the whole time, an update of iPod with some less commercial music would really benefit the mood.

Super fun activities run by the hostel, great for meeting people!

This hostel is in a great location in Lima, where you can either take a taxi or easily walk to Barranco. Like the other Pariwana I stayed at (in Cusco), they have you wear wrist bands for security and you have to buzz at the front door to get in- or they have someone standing at the door. The staff is super nice- especially the cleaning staff that clean the rooms twice daily, and the atmosphere is great! The rooftop bar is a great area to hang out in. Everything was pretty clean too!

This hostel has everything you need for a good time. The first day I got there I was just getting over food-poisoning and needed sleep. They put me in their most quiet room and lent me their fan for my stay to help keep me cool and relaxed. Great restaurant for good food. I would recommend to all and stay again. Thanks all!

Hello Mark, We are glad to know you liked the hostel and our staff job. On the other hand, since we are located in the central area of Miraflores, sometimes could be noisy because of the noise from the street. We are working to improve it, that is way your feedback is very important for us. Thank you for give us a review. Hope to see you again in Peru and Pariwana! Best regards. Maritza Conde Reception Manager

Really great hostel, staff were some of the friendliest around. Beds were big for dorms and really comfortable. The terrace is great for relaxing day and night. Lots of brilliant facilities and right near lots of shops

위치는 광장쪽이라 근처 식당이나 카페 근접성이 좋은것 같고, 스텝도 친절했습니다. 6인 화장실딸린방을 사용했는데 깨끗했고, 와이파이도 잘되는 편이였고, 상당히 만족스러웠습니다.

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 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....

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.
