Great hostel, although me and my friend spent really short time there, we had one night. Extremely clean, location is perfect, lots of restaurants around, busses, shopping malls, bars, in a safe neighborhood, Rooftop area is amazing and huge. We had great meal at the bar and it's good to meet people. Recommended.
I ended up gettin VERY sick in Lima. I stayed @Pariwana. ALL the staff was Amazing! Especially CLAUDIA!!! She is the Hostel Manager. Claudia is a FUCKIN ROCK STAR!!!! GIVE her a RAISE!! She deserves it! I had to b Hospitalized in Lima. Claudia got Doc Manrique to come to my room and get me to the Hospital. Claudia stayed with me that night and came the nex morning to check up on me! Claudia call me @ the hospital EVERY day, She went WAY above her DUTY. AMAZING, LIFE SAVER! LUV HER! She ROCKZ!!

Everything is great. Showers had pressure and hot water, secure building, kitchen / bar is on the top floor so noise wasn't an issue. Awesome location in the central district of Miraflores. Pingpong and fooseball. Internet is in Spanish so you need to know how to switch the browser toEnglish. Movies for TV room are signed out at bar.Will stay again.
We really loved this hostel! The beds are super confortable and you get 2 pillows! They organize free activities each day. The food is good and cheap. Location is perfect. Very good value for money.
Very helpful and friendly staff and very comfortable dorms. The location is great and close to the metro. The shower pressure is very low. Like any big hostel they do not allow outside drinks and their prices are expensive. Overall a good hostel but not the best.
Pariwana had a great location and was very clean and had a great bar setting. However I found the woman serving me by reception to be very rude and unhelpful and sarcastic

Second time I've stayed at Pariwana Lima. It's a good hostel. Comfortable beds, lockers in the rooms with power points in them to charge phones and laptops. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It's in a good location, near some great restaurants. Can get a little loud if you're looking to sleep, but no real complaints.
Great hostel, would definitely stay again. Very good staff, maps, activities, security, location, bar and restaurant. Heard some of the rooms near bar can be noisy, mine was fine
Clean, organized, great location and has a beautiful decor . But the best are the beds : large and comfortable.
One of the best hostels I've slept in. Really cool night life too :-)
Pariwana was a great hostel to stay at. Staff was very friendly, bar area is really nice and cozy. Luis (security, staff) was one of the coolest people we met during our month trip. He treated us like brothers/old friends. He lives in Lima, and was more than willing to take his free time to show us around. He took us to this really cool shopping area with cheap knock-offs and translated for us, showed us good places to eat, and the town in general. He and the staff really made our time here!
Good place to stay in Lima. Nice bar, average breakfast (though pretty standard for Perù), good facilities, clean bathrooms and comfy beds. Miraflores is a nice neighbourhood, and reaching Lima downtown, albeit far, it is not too hard with the Metropolitano bus service.
Very well run hostel. Great atmosphere.the staff are very helpful. Enjoyed my stay there. Very unhappy with the tour operator used by their tourist agency for their Muchu Picctu trek. Could not recommend this operator.
Liked my stay there, unfortunetly just stayed a night. Would have stayed longer. Great stuff and fun activities, only the salsa lesson wasnt that good.
Great hostel, nice staff, easy to meet people with lots of great common areas. Social/party hostel so it gets a bit noicy at night but hey ho
Had an amazing time there! The staff are really helpful , the bathroom is clean, and the atmosphere is great! just the breakfasts could be better. but anyway, i definitely would recommend.
Best hostel I have ever stayed at. I've been to Lisbon and stayed at Hostel World's "#1 rated hostel". I have to admit, that place was good, but the Parawana was amazing! The staff and atmosphere is beyond belief. Everyday the staff has some activity planned, and they do their own tours where they take you into town to the festivals. At night if people want to dance, they will take you to local Peruvian clubs. I've never met as many amazing backpackers and staff than at the Parawana.
One of the best hostels in Peru! Extremely helpful staff and free breakfast in the morning is always great! Highly Recommended!
Really great hostel in so many ways if you want a quite chilled out hostel. It's great that there is a well equipped kitchen and a bar that serves really brilliant food! I have to say one member of staff was very unhelpful and always check your confirmation email from them-read it carefully! But would definitely stay there again!
Pariwana Lima is an incredible hostel in the heart of Miraflores, the best neighbourhood in the city. I had a great stay at this hostel and I will definitely recommend it to other travellers. With a very helpful staff, amazing facilities and a nice atmosphere I take the Pariwana Lima one of the best place to stay in Lima.
