Beds were super comfy and I loved the outlets in the lockers! The staff was friendly but not overly helpful. The hostel was a little loud due to being located on a busy street, but that's the price you pay for a good location. Also liked that a travel agent came to the hostel daily. Normal padlocks don't fit the lockers...
Loved this hostel!! The staff were so friendly and the people staying there were really fun! The rooms were great with the secure lockers, with chargers inside. The location was excellent too!
amazing place to stay and meet other travelers. bad bad internet.
Great stay. Really fun and friendly staff. Great five a side football organised. Nice bar with decent grub. Super location. Only negative the WiFi and and internet were rubbish as was breakfast! Recommend staying here!
This is a very big hostel with a huge diversity of people. I made friends and had a good time. Considering their volume of people, they could use a few more bathrooms, though I know that's not a suggestion that can easily be met. Its a bit on the rugged side, but that's not to say dirty or unsafe. The staff planned fun activities and outings that definitely added to my Lima experience.
A very good hostel. Not the quiestest one you´ll find, but they did a good job splitting the sleeping rooms and the communal places, so one can sleep very well. They could do with some more computers. Otherwise, the staff is great and helpful, and the place is secure. Everything you need to start a good trip through Peru.
Great hostel if you like the party vibe. My bed was next to a window which stayed open the whole time and is on top of a busy road so I hardly slept. I was planning on staying longer but left after 2 because of this reason.
Great place, very good bed, clean. The only low side was the shower which could be more powerful....
Great location, helpful staff, a party hostel but not over the top, nice breakfast! I've stayed at the loki too in Lima and i would by far choose to stay in the pariwana over the loki
very decent hostel is a great location in Lima. The rooftop bar was great and had good food to eat. They also try and do a lot of events every night to entertain people which was fun. Will stay here again if I go back to Lima.
Parawina is the place to be in you want to meet people and have fun! Located in the center of Miraflores, you are just 10 mins of walk from the beach. I would get back to this hostel if I was going back to Lima for sure!
Pariwana Lima is a good stop-off point in Lima before heading to other destinations. I had more fun hanging out in the hostel than exploring the city - the staff there organize trips, bar games, etc. As other reviewers said, the showers have very low pressure and not much heat, if that kind of thing bothers you. The hostel strikes a good balance between fun without total party chaos. Raul and team are excellent. Sidenote; Cusco´s Pariwana is outstanding and one of the best hostels around.

It was awsome! I stayed in both hostels in Perú, in Lima and Cusco and both are wonderful, excellent location, service and ambiance, It is one of the best hostels I have stayed in, I recommend it 100%
party place full of gringos that start getting pissed at noon even though the bar is quite expensive. for the checkout i had to wait almost one hour in a line. even though there were about 50 people checking out only two staff members were there to deal with that. they couldnt get my laundry cleaned in almost 20 hours and i almost missed my bus because of that.
Nice hostel, good location, safe and clean. Good vibe and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
People are very nice and they always have some activity at night. It's location is very central in Miraflores. The bathrooms are nice, clean and has a toilet inside the shower's cabine. They have huge lockers where you can also leave your cell phone charging safetly (there is a plug inside). It's a very good value for money. However, it's not as charming as Pariwana in Cusco...
Great hostel in the heart of Lima. Good place to hang out or to have fun and a bit of party
The location of the hostel is just perfect, you can just walk around and explore miraflores. the rooftop terrazze is very good, music mostly all day, but not too loud or annoying. the staff was very friendly and helped out a lot. the rooms got cleaned every day, the bed was made every day. the could have a bit more showers & toilets,but i never really had to wait. the beds were hugh and comfortable, real beds :-) the bar was nice, wifi didnt worked in the rooms :-(
Ive got to say this was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at and I've travelled all over the world. The hostel has a travel agent located inside to help travellers organise their trip around Peru. I found that the travel agent here can offer the best deals so don't bother going elsewhere. The atmosphere is very lively, rooms and bathrooms are clean. There is a bar and breakfast is included. There is wifi/computers, an outdoor area to mingle and is quite centralized in Miraflores.
Lots of fun, really enjoyed my stay here!
