Awesome place to stay, big, comfy beds, hot showers!!!! Secure, outlets inside lockers (bring your on lock) nice common area!!!! They would let you store your bags if doing some excursion like the inca trail. Just ask. No complains! :)
The most beautiful hostel that i ever saw! The staff is welcoming and the have chargers inside the lockers! Perfect combination!
The beds! Ah the beds! I had heard about them in La Paz from travellers and they were better than described. What beds! What beds!
Excelente lugar, fiz a melhor escolha possível com relação à custo x benefício, fica muito próximo da principal praça da cidade, de onde saem todos os passeios turísticos e das demais praças turísticas, limpeza e organização impecáveis, café da manhã muito bem servido e ambiente acolhedor.

Really nice hostel with comfortable and warm beds. We stayed here on 2 separate occasions the first we had a really nice room but the second we had a very small cramped room. The tour desk was often unattended and when we were able to see someone they had very little English and couldn't explain what was offered and included in the tours. The only other complaint was the bar food was very average, it took a really long time to come out and then was cold a a unappetising.
The location was great... Only a few blocks from plaza de armas. The beds were very cony and the showers were hot. I highly recommend staying here!
Great hostel. Big comfy warm beds. Bar has sound proof doors if u need to sleep. Huge hostel but easy to meet people. Bar has great menu for food! Always can get a shower, and they're hot! We are return customers so we liked it!
Fiquei no quarto de casal com banheiro privativo. o quarto foi limpo todos os dias e as toalhas (sim toalhas) trocadas. A unica coisa que poderia melhorar é o cafe da manha. mas o resto foi ótimo
one of the best hostel I ever stayed in. great staff and location. the best is the bathroom.
Translated by I recomendadísimo! Loved it! I had a super good Pariwana. Only the included breakfast could be a little better, at least have fruit.
Stayed here before and after our trip to Machu Pichu. Great location, really big comfy beds with clean sheets (even change the duvet cover every day!!!) Food at bar was decent, water was a bit overpriced. Safe lockers in room and felt safe leaving our big bags here whilst we went to machu pichu. Staff are friendly though the tour agency desk didn´t really speak english which wasn´t very helpful. Simple south american breakfast but served until late which is a plus. Overall enjoyed our stay
Mixed feelings about Pariwana. Amazing facilities and amenities for a great price in great location. But I feel like it goes to far, its practically a hotel/resort. Do you really want to fly into the heart of the Inca empire and hear Bon Jovi and Guns-n-Roses on repeat ? If you can deal with that then the hot showers are probably worth it.
I was with a group of 7 people, and everyone agreed that this was THE BEST HOSTEL we had EVER stayed in! The security made it feel incredibly safe, the beds were very comfortable, everything was clean, the atmosphere was great, the staff was super helpful and every day there were different activities planned. I don't know why anyone would choose to go to any other hostel, let alone a hotel.
You really can't ask for a better hostel. Stayed at Pariwana in Lima and this was even better. Awesome colonial building with good bar, kitchen, big comfy bunks and great staff. But we found the travel desk was terrible for advice and expensive for a backpacker, especially for Machu Picchu. Organising a train yourself or buying a car package elsewhere was a far better option.
As it is the biggest Hostal in Cuzco the personal just treat you as a tourist without any personal touch or missing sometimes some friendly actitude. The stay was nice such as the restaurant and the quality of the beds is good.
Great activities during the day and a decent enough breakfast. Very much a party hostel. Not so great on days where you need to get up at 5/6 am to start a trek, or if you're dealing with altitude issues and need to sleep. We had drunk people chatting outside our room door at all hours, but the activities they run are supper fun on days that you're up for it. and they ave free tea all day to help with altitude.
Stayed in the 4 bed ensuite; perfect place to stay for a few days before the Inca Trail. Close to the city centre, San Pedro Markets, room is cleaned and beds made every day, bathroom is cleaned twice a day. Breakfast is standard bread, cereal, tea and coffee, bar is a little bit louder at nights but is manageable. Staff are incredibly helpful, and there is an information centre/booking agency in the lobby for the tours in and around Cusco.
Excellent base from which to explore Cuzco and the surrounding area- nicely converted colonial building, spacious dorms, large and very comfy beds, quite good bar with decent food, and a good location 5 mins walk from the Plaza de Armas. Possibly slightly too big to have a really good social atmosphere but by no means bad.
Great place! This hostel is beautiful, has all the comforts of home but with a backpacker feel. They have a bar, activities and great 'chilling' spots - yet still conducive to a good nights sleep!
Hostel was amazing, would highly recommend for Cuzco. Awesome location great staff, good wifi, great bar with great entertainment, good food at low prices only seem to eat here. Nice tour desk. If your in Cuzco stay here!
