It was an excellent place to stay, other than the loud music continuing past midnight.

Great hostel, definitely covered all the basics a traveller needs. Only complaint is that it's quite expensive to buy drinks/food at the bar in comparison with the rest of Cusco.

Great location and mostly friendly staff. Can get pretty noisy as it is a party hostel.

I stayed in a private room with bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable, linens were clean, bedroom size was fine. The bathroom was small, but the shower worked perfectly. Breakfast was simple but good. Some ham and cheese would make it perfect though. A suggestion would be an acoustic cover to the bar. When you need to wake up early for a tour it is pretty hard to sleep before 1am. The silence rule after 10pm doesn't work at all.

It is the Hostel with the best facilities I have ever seen. Besides the building is really beautiful. Friendly staff and good value for money. The only problem for travelers who improvise with their accommodation is that the hostel is almost always full, so it is difficult to get a room unless yo do it some days in advance.

Really comfy beds ( with two pillows!), hot hot showers, good bar with decent food, and I loved the electric sockets in the lockers. I found it amazing that given there were so many beds here, it still did not feel impersonal. Would definitely recommend

We had several problems with staff when he had tried to get a six bed for all of us (we were six) . they refuse at every moment saying they don't understand what we said. Despite this all the other topics the hostel is good mainly in a south america hostels which is different from European standards.

The large communal courtyard with beanbags, table tennis and music alongside great internet, plentiful bathrooms and decent kitchem makes for one of thr best hostels I've ever stayes at.

We had a great time at Pariwana! The staff was great. The hostel is located a block away from the major city square. We really enjoyed the daily activities that the hostel had scheduled. Overall we had a great experience and met some great people!

First of all: this place sells out-of-date food. Meat, rice, even the potatoes were totally out of date and more expensive than outside. And it's very noisy. There was very loud music until pretty late hours. For these two reasons, I gathered all my luggage and checked out without even staying one night. We were actually two people and we found very good hotels for 20/25 dollars more per person.

Dear guest, We take your complaint very seriously and we are happy that you took the time to inform us about this matter, so that we are able to react and investigate immediately. We are really sorry about the food you tried here, and probably your food was relatively crude, this is the reason that you thought your food was out of date, and actually we are working hard to have solutions for the noise. Thank you. Pariwana Team

This was our favorite hostel of our trip! Fun social vibe with great facilities including tv room, kitchen, bar with good and pretty cheap food and a computer room. We were in an 8 bed female dorm with a bathroom inside. The staff cleaned it twice a day and our room daily. THere were daily activities that people could participate in and it was easy meeting people. Great location and hot showers too!

Very clean and comfortable hostel, beds are amazing, as are facilities. Quite quiet if you're looking for a party hostel but you can always go to the Wild Rover bar on the same street. Would defo recommend.

Loved the atmosphere of this hostel. Lots of young travelers and community entertainment areas. A few blocks from the main square in Cusco. They provide useful travel/tourist information as well as nightly activities (salsa lessons, stoplight party, etc). Would definitely stay there again.

Loved the location of the hostel and the private room was great! Big hostel with lots of activities going on! Would stay again. Security for storing bags was great. They only have 1 hair dryer for the whole hostel, so bring your own!

Great hostel in all aspects. Friendly staff, good facilities, no complaints. And WiFi and a computer room that actually works! I stayed in a number of hostels throughout Peru, including another in Cusco, and this was the best.
