This is a big hostel meaning a lot of people. Subsequently the wifi here was not great. You can only pay here with Visa or Soles and if you want to pay in US then they give you a shocking rate (2.55). Also the travel desk people were very unhelpful. We had a good stay here but wasn't one of the most enjoyable.
The atmosphere is really what makes this hostel one of the best I stayed at! Yes, the rooms are small and the breakfast is scarce, but the inner yard is a fantastic common space, plus the stuff is really helpful (I even feel guilty asking them so many things, and they always said yes)! This is not mentioning lots of wonderful travelers around! And as a bonus - hot water tank and coca tea as much as you need (and you will need a lot on the first day above 3000 meters altitude).

This was one of the nicest hostels I stayed in during my time in South America. The communal space was the best, with the bean bags chairs and the ping pong tables. The kitchen was pretty fantastic too. The beds were comfortable and this was the first hostel to have blankets and comforters that were warm enough. My only complaint is that the wireless did not reach the bedrooms. However, the communal living spaces were nice enough for this not to be a problem. Definitely stay here :)
Great stay in an amazing city. Would stay again if visited any of their locations. Private room was clean and cleaned daily. Do NOT do the mangroves tour, it was a canoe ride through VERY smelly and dirty swamp water (spoken from a nurse, smells don't usually bother me). Also, the private island tour to Rosario is not worth it, book the regular tour!! Otherwise great stay, wonderful staff, fun activities and nights out, not too loud at night, convenient bar, great location!
Amazing stay! Private room was very nice and clean, great amenities and temperature control. Food was delicious and reasonable priced. Atmosphere was fun, yet quiet at appropriate hours from the room. Great location, safe walk to city center and security at desk 24/7. Good tour suggestions and organization. Very impressed!!!
I loved this hostel! They have an event every night and have a staff member go to the bars with you and give you discounts if you want. Very clean rooms and hot showers. Would definitely recommend.
best hostel we stayed at in Peru. Great environment, helpful staff, clean rooms.

Centrally located, plenty of people to meet, breakfast which you can order (extra) as well as complimentary cereal, coffee, etc. Great open space in the middle to chat/enjoy the fresh air. The rooms are not noise proof, so definitely bring some earplugs! This aside would recommend staying here! Completely safe and enjoyable atmosphere!
The location was unbeatable, and the restobar was very tasty! The staff was pretty helpful, and they had a constant tea area where I could drink tea and matte de coca to feel better from the sorocha. I am glad I stayed here. The only downside is sometimes it seems the cleaning of the rooms was inconsistent, and we ran out of toilet paper for a while, but otherwise it was cute.
The best beds ever! So comfortable and bed gets made each day for you. Only thing is we arrived early (5am) on day of check in and were told that there were no beds! We were willing to pay extra charges. We found out around 1pm that day that yes there were beds available and we could have been well rested. Also they tried to charge me twice for the same towel.
Great location and facilities.
Amazing hostel overall. Great ambiance and atmosphere. I wish more of the staff spoke English though, but still it wasn't too hard to communicate.
The micro beer is delicious, the place is quiet and they help alot to find a trek to do to the Machu Picchu.
I transferred from another hostel to Pariwana (because the other one was all booked for my last day) and I wish I had stayed here the whole time! The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are clean with hot water. The atmosphere is also great because many activities are offered. Highly recommend!
Loved this place! Amazing parties and a perfect location. Would definitely go back again!
This hostel is equipped with everything you need in Cusco. The location is excellent and so is the staff. Also the parties in the hostel are great and definitely worth the money.
Perfect for backpackers looking to meet other people and excellent activities everyday at the hostel, the movie room and lounge areas were also great for relaxing!
Not too many complaints about this hostel. Overall it was a great place to stay. The beds are comfortable. The hot water and water pressure of the showers was great. Decent breakfast. Also great location. Some of the staff at reception can be a bit unhelpful and disorganized when things get busy (which was often). Also sometimes the parties in the central courtyard can carry unwanted sound into the rooms making it difficult to sleep. However, this was the best hostel I have stayed at in Peru.
Great hostel with a very convenient location. Tour desk is a huge plus. Minus - I felt quite cold in the building.
