It was ok. I recommend that the guest can choose to share with only men, only women or mixed.


Beautiful hostel, in a great location. The staff is overall friendly. Free breakfast. Travel type booking agency within the hostel for a small fee. Activities almost everyday for those who want to stay in and relax after hiking Machu Picchu. I{d definitely stay there again.


No wifi at the room. The staff told that the wifi is for use at the bar or central areas.


Very good hostel, with lot of things to do.


excellent location, though the town is small is just 10 min walking from the train station and has convenience stores nearby, the restaurant inside is amazing, serves you lot's of delicious food to recover strenght from machupichu, and the best part, the staff, really friendly and willing to help all the time. The only suggestion i have is to put more electric outlets inside the rooms or the lockers.


Hostel has good location, big free breakfast and clean bathrooms and dorms. Some of the dorms have no window, so little bit stuffy. Lockers big w/ outlet! Some of the foreign staff are not always nice. Bar has good food but too expensive. Same goes for laundry. TV room is nice and twice a week you can attend Yoga! Hostel games are fun...




Awesome location close to Plaza de Armas. Good atmosphere, wifi, social area, hot showed and comfy beds. Stay here!

nice hostel well located in Cusco. Lots of facilities and activities within the hostel during most. Enjoyed the barbeque and football tennis tournament. Dorms were a good size and beds comfortable. Bar had a good food menu. Only downside as a solo traveller was i felt a bit lost among groups of travellers and didn't find it easy to approach/meet and chat to others, due to the layout of the hostel. And just to clarify, i am a chatty person!


Als je je er thuis voelt is het 100 procent goed.


This was my first time staying at a "hostel." I had envisioned a hostel to be a beat up Motel 6 like here in the U.S., except you're crammed with strangers in the same room. To my surprise, Pariwana in Cusco was a diamond in the rough. From the minute you walk in, you are glamored by its beautiful and inviting court yard. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. Rooms were big enough. Guest service was hospitable. Location was walking distance to all the Plazas. I would stay here again.


One of the best hostels we have stayed in, in South America so far. The private room was nice and clean. The breakfast is simple, but good. Breakfast goes until midday and is constantly being replenished. Common areas are nice nice and have a chilled out atmosphere. Luggage storage is very secure for while doing a trek. We also stayed at Milhouse hostel, but Pariwana is definitely a better choice all round.


Wifi is terribly slow! The showers are actually hot! Good and warm blankets as well which i reallly apreciated. Breakfast was very basic, but there is milk for the coffee! Staff is average, not too friendly.

Really good hostel with a nice traveler atmosphere, the location is excellent since if you take a tour the pick up and drop off locations are really close to the hostel, as well as Plaza de armas the main square. The rooms are clean and there's something to do every day. The place really cool and full of people of all around the world so at nights it might become a little bit loud but bearable, if you look for party that's the right place.

Good: A hostel for meeting people and having a few beers, with organised events most days and nights. Comfy beds, hot showers and a reasonable breakfast too, with good common areas to lounge in. Bad: Cleaning staff enter the room noisily in the mornings, as do reception staff who will bring in new arrivals, and staff advice is geared to making them money, such as telling you buses are unsafe and to use their transport (we had no problems following advice from another hostel)


Location is great. Facilities were excellent.
