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.

Really good hostel with a nice traveler atmosphere, the location is excellent since if you take a tour the pick up and drop off locations are really close to the hostel, as well as Plaza de armas the main square. The rooms are clean and there's something to do every day. The place really cool and full of people of all around the world so at nights it might become a little bit loud but bearable, if you look for party that's the right place.

Good: A hostel for meeting people and having a few beers, with organised events most days and nights. Comfy beds, hot showers and a reasonable breakfast too, with good common areas to lounge in. Bad: Cleaning staff enter the room noisily in the mornings, as do reception staff who will bring in new arrivals, and staff advice is geared to making them money, such as telling you buses are unsafe and to use their transport (we had no problems following advice from another hostel)

Dear guest, thank you for your review, your opinion is very important for us, I want to apologize for the uncomfortable situation that you experienced with our Staff, I want to inform that we start to clean the rooms in the check out time because we have new arrivals who want the room ready on time, also we recommend to use our taxi service, because we don´t want the guest have a bad experience traveling in public transportation. I hope you can come back soon. Regards. Front Desk Manager

I think is a wonderful hostel, you have all you need there: the staff is really nice, the location is perfect, and they provide activities to meet other travelers and to socialize. They have enough toilets and they clean them several times a day, the beds were comfortable. I think is a great hostel to stay!

The place is awesome! Lovable staff, great energy inside that very old walls... Great games and free drinks every night! Good music (sometimes old, but gold). Good bathroons. The breakfast could have more variety, but there's an amazing bread and the jam is also good. It's next to Plaza de Armas where you find everything..

Awesome place to stay! Sad we were only there one night. Great bar with delicious and cheap food, but far enough away from rooms that it isn't loud. Very helpful staff. Comfy beds.

Super party hostel, sometimes people smoked in the bar which was gross. If you are into beer pong and loud music until 2 am, this is the place for you. If you want to relax, stay somewhere else.

Dear guest, thank you for your review, I want to apologize for the uncomfortable situation that you experienced with people who smoked and the music in the bar that night, we are working in the acoustic system of the doors and windows in the hostel to allow people sleep very well at night. Thank you for your observation. We hope you can come back again. Regards. Front Desk Manager.

The area is great and people were friendly. It's close to everything you wanna see in cusco. I used urban adventures to see machu picchu and i had a great experience with them. Then I went to etnikas to drink ayahausca and they were very professional. It seriously changed my life for the better.

If you want a party hostel this is the place for you. If you enjoy sleeping, look elsewhere. The 10 pm quiet hours are not enforced and the daily hostel hosted activities usually start at 9:30pm so you're guaranteed to not be able to sleep until hours later. Good hostel for partymongers, bad hostel for those interested in waking up any time before 10am.

They have delicious bred for breakfast (you can choose in between 3 types) and cornflakes. There is free tee around the whole day and the common rooms are quite nice. Laundry Service is quite expansive. You get it far cheaper right opposite the hostel. The tours they sell seem quite expansive too. Better ask at other agencies. Apart from that a great place to stay and to meet lots of people.
