Pirwa has a weird vibe but the blankets are warm and if your room is away from the bar area it's pretty quiet. The entire place is really dark. The kitchen is great and has lots of utensils so you can make your own food easily! The breakfast also comes with yogurt and cereal. Pirwa is a nice place place to stay and has a lovely central location close to San Pedro market and the Plaza de Armas.

This hostel was very dark throughout and the rooms were freezing despite warm blankets. The building was very worn down and dingey. However, great location and friendly staff. I would not stay again but it was a place to sleep.

We liked staying at the Pirwa hostel (we came back twice). Rooms are good and, during low season, the staff always tries to have a few people in each room instead of a few rooms full. That is really nice as you feel you have a private room. Breakfast and showers are ok. It is usually little cold in rooms but as blankets are good, it was not that much a problem. The thing the staff could improve would be to know more about tours offered.

Staff were at times extremely helpful and at other times utterly useless. An okay place to sleep, but can get noisy as the common areas are right next to the rooms.

Hostal was absolutely freezing cold all the time. Atmosphere was quite dead and the common room constantly played bad house beats. Wifi throughout the hostal was spotty. Location was nice but probably wouldn't stay again

I stay for 3 nights at this hostel and Its a very nice hotel. Cheap price , the room are very clean and the beds confortable. The staff are nice and very helpful. They help me to book a tour to go to the machu picchu and the price is good. I recommand this hotel because its so close to the plaza de armas and nice market so you just can walk and have a lot of fun! Mucho gracias Marc

A great hostel in a great location, the staff are lovely and friendly. I was in a 6 birth so away from the noise of the bar. Very cheap meals but no kitchen to prepare your own food.
