Have stayed here 3 times and used Pariwana as a base for accessing Puno and Sacred Valley. The building is full of character, security is excellent, as is the location just 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas and just off Plaza San Fransico (where collectivos stop). Can´t speaking highly enough of the Reception staff, no matter who is on, they go out of their way to help everyone and always with a smile. However the noise late at night and unnecessary dining room loud music needs to be looked at.
The hostel has a really high value of quality / money spent. It has great facilities. The opportunity area is the cleanliness of the bathrooms and beds.

Pariwana is very charming and well located. The only thing I did not like was that they charged a different value from what Hostelworld had indicated me to pay. Although the difference is very small (2 dollars) I didn't think it was fair (they blamed "the system"). They also charge you for the towel (20 soles or 8 dollars)... you cannot rent it, only buy it.
Good hostel, the breakfast could be better.
One of the best run hostels we have ever stayed in. Really well organised with great facilitites. Fun bar with lots of activities and great food. Most comfortable bed of any hostel!!
Pariwana management and staff are the best in the business. They know the backpackers needs, the friendly staff are there to help around the clock. My planned three day stay has has turned into a delightful 10 day stay. I have never enjoyed a hotel stay as much as I have enjoyed my hostel stays at Pariwana in Mireflores and Cusco. It gets wild and crazy at the appropriate times (Chile vs. Peru on the big screen) and quiet hours are enforced for rest. A happy James Sousa, Ferndale, California
Superb hostel - excellent customer care, many thanks
This hostel is amazing, unfortunately it was a bit quiet in the wet season but had noting negative at all
This is really a great hostel, located in the center of Cusco. The staff is very helpfull. My sister fellt sick and they organized the doctort and eveything. We did a 2 day to Machu Picchu. During this time we could lock our luggage in the Hostel for nothing. If I come back to Cusco I definitly will stay in Pirwana.
Only stayed here a night but it seemed okay. Like that the main section is an open air courtyard but it wasn't super awesome in the cold rainy weather.
Please stop the awful techno and dance music that plays all morning and all day sometimes! Nobody is on drugs so nobody wants to hear it! There's no escape from it either, it's pumped into the courtyard too!! Apart from that I loved everything and I'd recommend the hostel to anyone, Gracias.
Greath hostel! good atmosphere and party style. very near to main square and all the stuff in the center of cusco
Super cool hostel! Although the only downfall was that it can be loud and echo-ey at night.
It's a (too big) party hostel. Some people live their like in a resort because you got everything you need (sometimes too expensive). But all in all I had a good sleep even it was loud at night and the staff was alright. If you like big hostels, book it, otherwise take something else.
Awesome hostel. Good Bar and food. Available Internet. Good quality of facilities. For the price, it is a perfect option for travelers.
The beds were quite comfy and warm; hot showers were always available--I never had to wait. The bar is hopping at night (but not too late, so I could get a good night's rest) and there are tons of activities to sign up for if you don't already have plans.
Fantastic hostel in the heart of Cuzco, food was good and for a cheap price, beds were very comfortable, plugs in the lockers (great idea) also we arrived at 5am & got shown to our bed in a 6mix dorm and the wifi/ computers were really fast and very reliable.
There weren't many people there when I stayed there (probably because it was in Feb when the Inca Trail is closed), but I loved this hostel. Very secure with a security man, very good lockers with chargers within each one, TWO pillows, comfy beds, a great bar with board games and lots of yummy food, located just around the corner from the main squares. They also have a tourist office in the hostel, and a card machine - perfect for lazy days!
Most comfortable hostel beds in South America! The place had a great atmosphere. The bar hosts fun activities every night. The movie room was so comfortable to relax in and we really enjoyed that as we visited Cusco in the rainy season. The food at the bar was also really tasty at a reasonable price and the place was always really clean. Parisiana in Cusco has been one of my favorite hostels in South America. Only downside was the free breakfast is quite bland.
The hostel was great and the staff (especially Stefanie and Julia) were extremely helpful and friendly. I made the mistake to book one of my tours before I arrived over the internet. They have a travel service there which is a lot cheaper and you can book all tours directly through them. All facilities are nice and clean, they have super comfy beds and nice showers. All in all, I can only recommend this hostel!
