Gem of a hostel that's busy enough to meet people, yet not a party hostel - meaning a decent night's sleep before early morning starts for Macchu Pichu tours! Great activities. However, staff could be better; bin wasn't changed in our bathroom for 2 days despite my asking at reception, on-site cash machine broke but no sign placed so I had my card swallowed. Staff very unhelpful when I told them, said i had to call my bank. Computers often hard to get on, would be worth adding time limit!

Amazing place to stay, great chill out areas and computer room. The comfiest beds in South America. Loads of fun activities. Only downside is the security guards following you around at night and coming into the room with torches,,, felt slightly creepy!

An oasis in the middle of a bustling tourist hub, Pariwana Hostal Cusco, is your second home, albeit with great security. Built within a former Spanish-style colonial building, the hostel boasts comfortable clean rooms and lounging areas set around a stone (greenery filled) courtyard. They carry basic necessities, and have laundry service, a travel agency, and a restaurant on the premises. Location-wise - 2 blocks of the main Plaza - a safe stumble home after partying all night - top notch!

Parawanas manages to be a mega hostel but still has a personalized feel. It has great amenities- laundry, full restaurant/bar, hostel led activities in the hostel and out at night, security, computers, luggage storage. It runs like a machine. It is definitely a bit rowdy and very social so if guests are looking for a quiet hostel this isn't the place. That being said our first couple nights we stayed in a back room and could hardly hear the music.

A great place to party and meet people I was just checking in on a Sunday at 0100 then went to a salsa bar till 0600. The staff were helpful and advised on where to go in Peru

Good hostel with some cool features but because it is so huge the atmosphere wasn't as good as we were expecting. Dorm rooms were okay, nothing special & no lamps meaning that we were woken numerous times per night by rude dorm mates. Bathrooms had the tendency to get gross very quickly. Breakfast a real let down, just bread butter & jam however being able to buy beers at the bar & sit in the funky common area was nice. Definitely better places in Cusco for the $ they charge. Great spot to party

Great vibe here, staff are super friendly, activities organised every night make it easy to meet ppl. Breakfast is average unless u order somethin. Party if you want, or the rooms are quite separate if you just wanna chill. One of the better hostels in SA in my opinion. Disfrutas!

Don't book tours through the hostel!!!! And I'm not sure if you can count a piece of bread with jam as "breakfast included". Otherwise, good hostel and fun atmosphere

The hostel was great. Each bed has its own locker (bring your lock). The biggest downside was the wifi wasn't great in the rooms. Not a huge deal. I couldn't ask for anything more in a hostel. They have a bar that doubles as a small restaurant with decent prices. The location is very good. The staff was friendly. I'd definitely come again!

This is a nice hostel if you want to be in walking distance to everything and want to meet a lot of new people. This hostel has everything you need on the premises from food, to games, maps, showers, wifi, etc. It is a bit busy as there are a lot of people that stay here. This isn't a quiet place, but it is a nice place.

Great hostel! I appreciate the music and loud festivities being toned down after 10PM. It is also nice that there is a guard at the front for security making sure on unauthorized persons are entering the facility at night. Overall a great place. Hot showers, friendly atmosphere, laundry service, and many other amenities you might miss out on at other hostels.

Pariwana was amazing in Cusco - stayed 9 nights. A proud party hostel that delivers to those who expect a party. Every night had a theme or activity; made for a really fun time. It was also a really clean hostel: actually the ladies cleaning the bathrooms were borderline intrusive with how often they cleaned the place! Cons: breakfast is free but all right; understaffed at rush hour times (check-in/out); too many guests can be intimidating for making friends; kitchen is small and ill-equipped.

Really great place to stay, best hostel I've stayed in, I already recommended to many people, rooms are relatively quiet because of the thick walls and doors, good fun activities and perfect location
