Loved the atmosphere of this hostel. Lots of young travelers and community entertainment areas. A few blocks from the main square in Cusco. They provide useful travel/tourist information as well as nightly activities (salsa lessons, stoplight party, etc). Would definitely stay there again.

Loved the location of the hostel and the private room was great! Big hostel with lots of activities going on! Would stay again. Security for storing bags was great. They only have 1 hair dryer for the whole hostel, so bring your own!

Great hostel in all aspects. Friendly staff, good facilities, no complaints. And WiFi and a computer room that actually works! I stayed in a number of hostels throughout Peru, including another in Cusco, and this was the best.

It was a really nice hostel, however, it has a big party atmosphere , and it was not what I was looking for during my entire stay in Cusco.

Great dorms and surprisingly not too noisy considering the party's, which themselves were average. Great staff however. Don't use their travel company, it's a rip off. Location was good.

We had a great stay our first three nights in Cusco. This hostel is clean, has great amenities, loads of coca tea, & comfortable beds with two pillows! We made a reservation in person for the night of our return from a 5-day trek, however when we arrived we were told the reservation was for the previous night & rooms were full. Staff were quite unhelpful-giving us (3 girls) a map to nearby hostels (@2230). They were unwilling to call to see if any had availability when we asked. Dissappointing.

It is a great place to stay in Cusco. The hostel is big, with great common areas to meet other travelers, socialize and party. The travel desk is great for finding out more info of the tours on offer in the area and for booking. There are however cheaper ways of doing this, but not as convenient. I would definitely stay again if coming back to Cusco

Pariwana is by far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at! The atmosphere is great and they have daily activities for their guests, such as walking tours, barbecues, parties. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend it.

Great atmosphere, decent breakfest, and the best hostel beds ive ever had. Really close to the town center and local grocery stores. Location couldnt get any better

Professionally organized, huge hostel with lots of fun inside. Breakfast is the usual depressing bread with margarine and jam, but you have the option to buy proper food inside

All the staff at pariwana Cusco was very helpful and friendly! The first floor is noisy because it's next to the courtyard and the music travels from the bar upstairs. We switched to a 6 bedroom dorm on the third floor with an ensuite which was much more quiet and comfortable. The staff keeps up with cleaning all bathrooms and other areas at least three times a day but a lot of people staying at the hostel don't clean up after themselves.

Good atmosphere, cool events every night, excellent location close to Plaza de las Armas, poor breakfast though (just bread, butter and jam plus hot drinks). Bar is a bit expensive and it is not allowed to bring beverages from outside.

Great food, nice people, good internet connection, the rooms were comfy and quiet but there's a bar which is quite lively depending on the night. One of my favorite hostels in South America. My only complaint is that it's hard to get in if you want to hang out with friends , unless they come pick you up at reception.
