nice hostel well located in Cusco. Lots of facilities and activities within the hostel during most. Enjoyed the barbeque and football tennis tournament. Dorms were a good size and beds comfortable. Bar had a good food menu. Only downside as a solo traveller was i felt a bit lost among groups of travellers and didn't find it easy to approach/meet and chat to others, due to the layout of the hostel. And just to clarify, i am a chatty person!

Dear guest, Thanks for your comment. We are really happy you liked our facilities and activities at Pariwana Hostel. This motivates our team to continue working even harder. I am sorry, if you don´t have the opportunity to approach to other travellers, the idea of a hostel is to meet new people, share your new travel experiences, the next time you come here, for sure you will meet new friends. We hope you will come back soon again. Best regards. Front Desk Manager


Als je je er thuis voelt is het 100 procent goed.

Dear guest. I want to thank you for your great comment, we are really happy that you have enjoyed your time in the hostel. We hope to see you soon. Best regards. Front Desk Manager.


This was my first time staying at a "hostel." I had envisioned a hostel to be a beat up Motel 6 like here in the U.S., except you're crammed with strangers in the same room. To my surprise, Pariwana in Cusco was a diamond in the rough. From the minute you walk in, you are glamored by its beautiful and inviting court yard. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. Rooms were big enough. Guest service was hospitable. Location was walking distance to all the Plazas. I would stay here again.

One of the best hostels we have stayed in, in South America so far. The private room was nice and clean. The breakfast is simple, but good. Breakfast goes until midday and is constantly being replenished. Common areas are nice nice and have a chilled out atmosphere. Luggage storage is very secure for while doing a trek. We also stayed at Milhouse hostel, but Pariwana is definitely a better choice all round.

Wifi is terribly slow! The showers are actually hot! Good and warm blankets as well which i reallly apreciated. Breakfast was very basic, but there is milk for the coffee! Staff is average, not too friendly.
