Best hostel I have stayed in, in South America. Staff are great, you can party if you want, but you don't feel like you have to go out every night if you don't want to, unlike some other hostels. Only way you could improve this place is to improve the breakfast and lower the beer prices.
The hostel is a nice building with a nice courtyard, but too big, not the best atmosphere. The breakfast was so dull, presumably because they want you to buy a breakfast from the bar. But it was clean and safe and had a really good travel agency downstairs.
The music in the patio is really too loud. The staff is really nice though.
An oasis! Wonderful Patio, nice staff and also a tour agency available!
Great lockers in bedrooms. Nice sheets on beds. Good activities for meeting other travellers. Bit of a party hostel but in a good way. Good food in the bar there at a good rate. Location ideal, everything within walking distance
The Matrimonial room was too closed, no window. As it was near to the other bathrooms, sometimes it was a little bit noisy.
It's important to say that the bedroom where I stayed, it just have only one very small window. For those who have allergy like me, this can be a problem.
This is hands down the best hostel I have ever lived with, not just "one of the best". Facilities were great: free internet rooms, free hot tea all day, decent breakfast, super comfortable bed (even with two pillows!!!). I still can't believe that all these great stuff cost such little. Absolutely worth the money. Will definitely live here again!
This is a "Party Hostel." If you are not into noisy environment and would want to have a good night sleep, better checkout othet hostels. Parties everyday at the bar doesn't end until about 2am. And most of the tours starts really early in the morning. Wifi is only accessible in common areas and most of the time not working or very intermittent.
There were too much party that I couldn't sleep very well.
Bit of a party hostel for young people - so not quite our scene. But the amazing facilities, super-comfy beds, awesome showers and great staff made this place worth coming back to. The sugar puffs at breakfast go soggy really quickly.... :( But the bread is really good!! :)
Lovely hostel , staff very helpful. Well located & dorms are spacious & well maintained.
Nothing to say... An excellent hostel...

Staff is nice but could speak better English. The travel agency inside the hostel is really good : good price / quality! Sometimes too noisy at night! Showers clean and with hot water and water pressure but could use a hanger not just above the toilet.
Pariwana had the nicest facilities of any hostel that I stayed at in Peru, but it was really loud at night. I enjoyed my time there, but I would have preferred less of a "party hostel" vibe.
This hostel was one of the best investments I made on my trip to Peru. The location was excellent (2 blocks to Plaza de Armas), the staff & guests were so kind and friendly, and the individual bathrooms/showers were a gift from heaven (after a long day trekking, you appreciate it). You can lodge at Pariwana in a calm or party mood, either one you are going to enjoy your stay. 100% recommendable.
We had a private room in the back and it was quiet after 10. Lots of fun activities, really close to the Plaza de Armas and San Pedro market. I would stay here again. Sometimes the front desk staff came off a little moody, oh well.

Amazing hostel with helpful staff, a top notch laundry service, chill and party vibes, clean, and just overall an incredibly social and enjoyable place to stay. This hostel knocks it out of the ballpark when it comes to a place that makes you feel comfortable on all levels (cleanliness, helpfulness, always something to do). Kudos to this hostel for its incredible service and staff. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
Best hostel ever. So many activities and fun to be had. Great common areas. Don't be afraid of the party. Around the rooms it is quiet time starting @ 10.
Best hostel in Cusco! The staff spoke great English and were all very friendly. Hot shower was amazing! The room was clean and very comfortable. The courtyard area was a great place to relax and meet other travelers. I've already booked my next stay!
