Awesome hostel with a good vibe. The most organized and secure hostel I`ve been to. If you`re doing the trek your stuff will be safe with them. They have lot`s of activities going on every day, and a huge common area. Also I dropped my phone in the taxi and they tracked it down before I got on my flight, so I am very grateful for their awesome staff!! Loved this place
Probably the best hostel in which I've ever stayed. Perfect mix between partying and relaxing. Super amenities and really nice staff.
Everything is great except the wi-fi would only work in certain spots. It's a party hostel so it's very noisy but it's a great atmosphere.
Pariwana was generally a good hostel. It had excellent facilities and services, a restaurant with good food, and I thought the dorms were comfortable. I thought the plugs in the lockers were a nice touch. Cons were that it was huge (I prefer smaller hostels), a party hostel, and the WiFi was absolutely awful. It took us an hour and a half to book a single bus ticket.
This hostel is the one to be at in Cusco. IT is very centrally located to the main plaza de armas, local shops, restaurants and other services. The facilities are great, it is nice to have the patio/lounge area in the middle of the building. The rooms I was at had their own private clean bathroom with shower. Staff was nice and friendly at all times. The hostel is serious about quiet hours at night in the common areas. The bar has some noise isolating doors so you can barely hear noise.

Tons to do! Would recommend staying here more than one night. It is definitely a party hostel.
Really good hostel - I would recommended!
Had an issue one night where I returned and My name was wiped off the bed and someone else was given my bed and their belongings over the bed, difficult time getting a new bed. Was a lot of work to get to the room, bathroom facilities were VERY far from my room. Drinking fluids all day for the altitude but was always annoying to have to get to the bathroom. Party hostel! Fun but it also NEVER stops so sleep was hard but they do offer free ear plugs. Checked out day early to get sleep at a hot
Definitely a place to spend a few days, didn't get a chance to partake in the evening activities. Only had a couple of days there. Good rooms, nice bathrooms. Clean and safe.
The taxi driver called by the hostel to go around the sacred Valley was not fair. He didn't want stop in Pisac market told us that it was closed and also skipped on purpose Salinas as well. At the tour desk we wanted buy Peru rail tickets for machu Picchu but the system didn't works fine. The 10 bed mixed dorm was without windows and was impossible to breathe in the night. In summary bed experience.
Probably the best hostel in the world
We loved Pariwana and really enjoyed our stay there. We had booked a private room with a separate bathroom, which was just down the hall and always seemed really clean. At night the hostel is really quiet (except the bar!) which means you will get a good night's sleep. The courtyard is really nice to hang out in, chat with other people or read a book in the hammock.
The Pariwana-Hostel Cusco is a nice place to stay. Every Day of the week, they offer several activities to participate in, and the staff is very helpful. But it is very loud. Most of the time music is playing loudly outside, which you can hear pretty much everywhere. There is a "Quiet Zone" but it is pretty useless, because the guests do not care for it. So if you like it quiet sometimes, you should consider that. Nonetheless... I liked it.
The check out guy is superrrrr slow each morning between 6am to 7am, had to wait for ages to pay, which is irritating! other than that, the hostel is just perfect!
Nice and atmospheric place! A little bit noisy at evenings.
I had a really nice staying in Pariwana. It feels like home, very beautiful and comfortable common areas and bar has great food and parties almost every night for anyone interested. The toilets are continuously kept clean and the staff is very friendly. There is also a big computer area and a movie room. Location is perfect, very close to main interest points and facilities. I spent 5 nights there and I would definitely come back!
Awesome hostel! Felt very safe, staff were helpful & great atmosphere & great place for meeting fellow travellers
Great hostel in many ways. Some issues to solve: shower wasn't great in peak hours, wifi didn't work in the room and reception was always full. And someone stole something from my bag in the room (which probably isn't their fault). Apart from that it is an AMAZING place. Definitely recommend.
Great hostel, good balance between having fun and relaxing
NIce commons area. We had a riot playing ping pong in the commons area. A great activity; helps to acclimate (gets you moving!).
