Great hostel, excellent wifi connection, comfortable beds and rooms.
Pariwana Hostels have proven to be a great place to stay. I stayed both in Cusco and Lima and was very impressed with every aspect of the Hostel. They had activities, recommendations, and great service to offer their guests. One of the great aspects is the electric outlets inside your lockers so that you can leave your electronics charging with peace of mind. In Lima they also had smaller lockers right in front of the Reception with optional electric outlets as well for more important documents.
The hostel is very well located in Miraflores close to shops, cafes and restaurant. Bedrooms clean with great mattress and bathroom also clean and well maintained! Rooftop very nice for having drinks or dinner Staff nice but sonthimes very busy so not very helping. The experience was very nice in general.

Good location. Good staff. Good bar.
Perfect location right in the centre of miraflores, great facilities, plenty going on, the rooftop bar was really good and the breakfast menu was lovely. The beds were very comfy (two pillows is a nice change!). The only downside was the guy on the desk that day who just really could not care less, and didn´t really help with our questions. Regardless we would still definitely recommend/stay again!
Great staff, great location... Fun but still quiet enough to get some rest if that's your thing. With the rooftop it's an even better space than the one in Cusco
This is an overall pretty good hostel, MAJOR complaint was the bathroom situation. How are there only 3 bathrooms on the top floor for like 100 people?!!?!?!?!?!?
A hostel in a great location however was completely let down by the staff. On a number of occasions I was at reception and whilst being dealt with the staff would get distracted, start speaking to someone else and the girl who did my check out and taxi booking was completely incompetent, trying to charge me twice. The kitchen is also currently out of use, something they should let guests know prior to booking. I'd heard good things this hostel but it was really let down by the staff.
Pros: Safe, really nice and helpful staff, lots of activities, fun bar upstairs, free simple breakfast and tea/coffee, really comfortable beds, outlets in the lockers, airport transfer, just a really great place Cons: not allowed to bring in own alcohol
Awesome set up, my friend was slipped a drug at Gotica and they were VERY helpful and very concerned. Made sure everyone was okay. Very clean and big!
Clean hostel, good breakfast, good location and comfortable bed! Kitchen was out of order tho!
One of the best hostels in the world! The staff are really great and the atmosphere is awesome. i felt there like i was at home! Something good always happening in pariwana!
This was my first hostel experience in a long time and I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! Amazing location, friendly and helpful staff as well as great atmosphere :) I would recommend to anyone visiting Lima

Great location, helpful staff, nice roof terrace, always clean, secure lockers with sockets inside, ping pong table, nice food. Breakfast a bit simple and the music sometimes turned up so loud the speaker crackled, but quiet in the dorms. Overall I would recommend this hostel to anyone thinking to stay in lima.
This is a great hostel in one of the best locations your going to find! Right in the heart of Miraflores surrounded by hundreds of great bars and restaraunts! Nice comfortable beds in spacious rooms mean it doesn't matter if your in a 6 bed dorm or a 12 bed dorm it's just as good. Lima is an amazing city and this is an amazing hostel right in the heart of it. Spend as much time as you can here!
Excellent hostel right in the centre of Miraflores! Great atmosphere and good bartenders! Comfortable beds and good showers! Decent food at restaurant! Thought the reception staff were very incompetent. Experienced multiple incidents where information was not conveyed correctly and their explanations week confusing!
Great hostel! Quiet and clean rooms and at the same time there is a party atmosphere at the rooftop and bar
Had a really good stay. The staff were very welcoming and the roof top terrace common area was the bomb. Wifif did well to cover such a big place and the rooms had some nice comfy beds. Enjoy your stay!
Great location in Miraflores. Lovely rooftop terrace and nice social area. Was offered breakfast when i arrived very early which was nice. Decent bathrooms with hot water and comfy dorm. No kitchen though.
