Great hostel. Clean, organized, and good location. It's a very big hostel which some people may like and others not so much. Would definitely stay again,
Absolutely loved my time in Pariwana!! Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone, really clean bathrooms and comfy bed, with a proper duvet and pillows! All the staff are really friendly, especially the reception staff who are really helpful if you have any questions. The food in the bar is also delicious and great activities in the bar every night!

very good party hostel!! the have every day an event there, many people, very talkative and easy to meet. they got a great and big bar there, where u can meet and party with the people. breakfast, beds are good. staff is very friendly, speaking english and spanish. also the food there is good, it took a while to come, but it was good. the only problem was that they were not that many showers for all the people, but it's really worth staying there. very good hostel, i would stay again there ;)
Showers were hot, beds comfortable, and decent wifi. Staff were friendly amd helpful with questions and reccomendations. Awesome layout and common areas.
Really helpful staff, nice breakfast and bar. Good place to book salkantay trek. Nice security system to confidently leave your bags and valuables while you trek
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Pariwana hostel. The only down side was the internet connectivity/computer speed in the computer room. Those machines were 1990's slow. Other than that, everything was great.
Big hostel with everything you need and in a great location. Was fairly quiet when we were there so atmosphere wasn't amazing but I'm sure when fuller it's good
The hostel location and facilities are great! I would definitely stay there again. Although it has a very nice atmosphere, with activities promoted every night, the bedroom's area stay quiet after 10pm, which is great if if you have to get up early in the morning for a tour or anything else.
My friend and I thought we'd reserved a room with 2 beds, but instead when we arrived we found a room with just one. The first staff person was friendly but wasn't able to do anything for us. In the morning when we tried to raise the issue again, one of the other front desk staff blamed us for the mistake - we found his attitude very unprofessional. The restaurant is very weak even by hostel standards ("vegetable medley" for example is flavourless, wet, and colourless microwaved vegetables).
Such an awesome hostel. Very chilled but at the same time lots going on and lots to do. One of the best places I have stayed in South America,
Rating of 100% as it totally deserves it. Great bar, great staff, great activities, great chillout room, so clean!
Great facilities, friendly staff, very secure. Definitely a good place to meet people and party if you want to. It was so great I had to come back after visiting Machu Picchu.
Great venue, very nice premises, clean and safe

Fun place to party. Social atmosphere and nightly parties. Good place to go if you are traveling solo and want to meet people. Near the main square and starting points for many tours. Staff was friendly and approachable, but with many guests it sometimes took a while to receive attention. Beds were very comfortable!
Hot showers! Just be patient and wait for the water to warm up. Great "home" location for your trek to Machu Picchu -- they actually tag your bags and make sure it's yours before returning it to you. Cafeteria is also AWESOME! Food is sooo yummy and very affordable. You won't find many Peruvian dishes here, but their pastas and breakfast are done very well. Highly recommended!
The best atmosphere, the best location, the best day and night activities, the best bar, the best staff, and yes... The best party!
One of the best hostels we've stayed in so far, spent 6 days here while in cusco and would be happy to stay longer. The facilities were all great, WiFi actually worked, the restaurant/bar was good and the staff seemed to really enjoy working there. The activities put on by the hostel were a lot of fun as well, and gave an upbeat yet relaxed atmosphere to the place.
I enjoyed my time at Pariwana. I traveled alone to Peru, and I felt safe in the area, and the location was ideal for a tourist.

Stayed in the female only dorm. Nice to have our own private bathroom. Very good atmosphere at this hostel and very central, close to Plaza de San Francisco and from there you can go wherever. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it. If there was any criticism it would be that reception was ALWAYS busy, so if you needed something, it takes a while, but the people are very helpful.
Really helpful staff. Arrived early and they happily stored our bags, we could use all the facilities, showers, wifi and breakfast. The standard breakfast was good and there was optional extras to buy. The courtyard was lovely, lots of things happening and plenty of seating. Wifi was really good but only worked in the courtyard or dining room but that's understandable in such a large hostel. The beds were really comfortable and everyone got a locker with power supply. Hot showers.
