good facilities, a good size kitchen to cook your food, nice bar and restaurant with affordable prices and good location. a bit loud at night in the rooms near the bar , but who is complaining its a party hostel! the place itself is an old protected house with a big courtyard to play pingpong and hang around


Great hostel. Friendly staff and other guests.


We enjoyed our short stay at this hostel. It was far better then some of the US Motels we've stayed in the past and would recommend this to anyone. We were picked up at the airport and taken to this hostel as well as taken back to the airport with no issues. We enjoyed a good night sleep and the staff was AWESOME.


Best hostel I've ever stayed at!

Amazing, comfy beds - especially for such a massive hostel. They give you two pillows! Breakfast is also pretty good too!


Awesome hostel! Let us keep our bags in storage while on our trek. Nice movie and computer room. Centre courtyard with ping pong table is great for relaxing. Best beds in any hostel I've stayed in.


Great hostel, one of the best in the world I have been to. They are well organised and the rooms are fantastic.


Daily/nightly activities. Organized our Sacred Valley tour through the hostel and we had a wonderful day. The storage and laundry facilities were very useful. A word of caution. My clothes were cleaned by early evening as promised, my friend's were not returned until 10pm or so. Internet worked well in the bar area, it did not work in the rooms. Food served in the bar was good, but service was slow. Overall I would come again and recommend to others.


Best hostel around! Constant flow of hot water, good night life but able to still sleep and very helpful staff


For such a big hostel it's amazing how efficiently it's run. Great location. I didn't get a chance to spend the time in the hostel since I mainly hiked but it looked like a great atmosphere, everyone was very friendly and it's a younger crowd. The hostel puts organized events every day and it looks fun! Breakfast is good and you'd have to buy additional items if you don't want only bread/jam/butter and it's cheap. Coffee is to die for. Center of Cusco is nearby, everything walking distance.


Great bar and food, beds are amaZing. Showers could be better but are ok. Had a great time! Home away from home. Had a kitchen to cook with! Could be better wifi in the rooms


Party hostel. Hostel is huge but the dorms are rather cramped. Good facilities like TV room, computer room, nice courtyard. The negatives: My Bed sheet was not clean and i got bug bites. Had to ask them to change again. Food paid for at their resto-bar is mediocre, for the same price orobably you get something better in a proper restaurant.


Like the one in Lima - perfect hostel with all the little details that make a good hostel, great location and good security. Highly recommended! (I liked the one in Lima a little better because it is not as big as its Cusco sister and therefore more personal)


Very big hostel. Well prepared, everything just works. Organizes many events if you don't know what to do while in Cuzco.


Security is excellent, outsiders can't simply enter like other hostels. The place looks really nice inside with an inside square, however, there are at least 3 other hostels like this. Location is very central too, well Cusco is small anyway. Had a private room which was rather on the quiet side of the hostel but you can still hear the party music if you want to sleep early. So, unless ur a light sleeper wouldn't recommend it. But if you are a party person, they do throw great parties.


Great hostel with comfy beds! Right in town so it's easy to come and go. The Loki hostel is up a hill having to walk a bunch of stairs which is a workout just to come and go. Pariwana has awesome people great safe staff, and a fun courtyard with ping pong and bean bags! One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at I would definitely come back :)


One of my favorite hostels I've stayed at. They have a great layout and they are really focused on giving their guests a good time.


This is probably the best hostel I've ever been to. It's perfect in just about every respect, and on top of that it has a great bar/restaurant which serves awesome and super affordable food. Great atmosphere here as well with a lot of common areas for hanging out, so on top of loving the hostel it was also easy to make friends. The staff is also really helpful and involved in trying to make you have a nice time, e.g. with cool activities.


This buzzy hostel was the ideal base for our stay in the Cusco area. The hostel is located in a central part of the city but traffic noise is minimal. The bag storage is well organised and secure, the rooms comfortable and clean and the staff are very helpful. The on site tour arranger proved good value. Only (slight) letdown was that the food serving was slow although tasted great and reasonably priced. Overall, recommended.


Excellent hostel! Clean, secure, good staff, good beds, good location, nice parties. The only thing I have to complaint is the rooms with no windows. But it is not a big problem, I loved my stay!
