The hostel was great for the backpacking atmosphere and the restaurant and bar was great. However, the shower was VERY cold! Also, there was not heating in the room and it got very cold that night.

Everything are beautiful except their floor have many small steps and cause some people trip easily. I hurt my ankle pretty bad, but luckily I could walk still. Perhaps they could paint with different colour so people could see that small steps down. Thank you.

Great location and place to stay! The only quarrel I have is that the staff did not seem to know what was going on with the activities. There was an agenda posted but it did not seem to be updated and staff did not know if they were going to happen. Other than that, great experience.

The best hostel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, there are a lot of facilities (including a ping pong table, library, bar, movie room) and many bathrooms to choose from. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The reason I rated the staff as ''average'' is that some staff members talked very loud late at night, during the night and in the early morning. Whenever a new backpacker arrived they would escort them to the dorm and they talk so loud!

Very lively place with a lot of activities going on (salsa dancing lessons, soccer game in the main quadrangle area, people playing music, etc.). Fun atmosphere for a young crowd, wish we could have stayed longer!

Excellent hostel! One of my favorites and would reccommend to everyone. Wish they set up the rooms with people looking for similair things, there is enough room to do so (party people or people needing sleep) also wish they enforced the quiet hours. Baller place!

This is a pretty large hostel so be ready for that and you can find the party crowd here also. However you can do basically what you want here so if the party scene isn't your thing you're not trapped in it. The hostel is very nice and has great facilities.

Bar is far too noisy when most need to get up early for Machu Pichuu

Ended up staying here for longer than I expected. Not only is Cusco a great place to chill out but Pariwana was easily the best place I stayed out of Milhouse, Wild Rover and Pariwana. It's just up the road from Wild Rover which is party central for the area so it's great to stay at Pariwana and walk down to Wild Rover for the party. Great place to stay, highly recommend it as THE place to stay in Cusco.

Good faculties and service but it is lacking in atmosphere, mainly due to it's size. Overpriced for what you get.

This is the place to be! Great value for your money, security is great and they even let you take a shower and have breakfast upon arrival. Staff is always eager to help and facilities were great. Fun activities to do at night and even if you are on your way to a major hike early next morning noises are not a major. Close to the main square, will be coming back for sure!

Awesome place, right next to the city center. The only downside was that we wanted to sit out in the courtyard and look at the stars, but they "closed it" and told us to go upstairs to the beer pong tournament.....

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, thank you for your review. We want to apologize for the inconvenient situation that you have had. We have a rule of QUIET ZONE in the courtyard at 10:00 pm because we understand that there are people who want to sleep at this time, for this reason we recommend to go to the bar to hang out. I hope you will come back soon to Pariwana Hostel. Regards, Front Desk Manager
