Brilliant place to stay. Rooms are basic. We had a private double with ensuite, nothing flash but very comfortable. Garden is BRILLIANT!! Also did a cooking class which was great. Staff were super helpful and absolutely lovely. My only complaint - the rooms are hot. Really reallyyyyyy hot! We needed to get up during the night between 2-5am every night to open the front door and let air in to cool down. Maybe some fly screens would help mozzies from coming in also when they are open?

Great place to stay with many options like yoga, quiet rooms a great bar/restaurant area and tour booking desk. My ONLY and biggest complaint is that it was SO NOISY!! They have signage around that said 'quiet after 10pm' which in theory is great for people that have to get put tours at 3,4,5 am like most of us did. Basically though the staff let people go and be as loud as they wanted and every night we were there (3 in total) people were talking and yelling and until 3am every night !

Dear guest, thank you for your comment. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay in Pariwana. We want to apologize for the noise in your room, the security staff try to keep calm and quiet in all hostel after 10:00 pm, sometimes it is difficult because they are many people in our Hostel, it´s for this reason that we will make new advertisment with Quiet Zone to make people understand that they are people who want to sleep. I hope you will come back soon to Pariwana. Regards, Front Desk Manager

Don't go here if you plan on wanting to catch a single ounce of sleep. Even the private rooms are DIRECTLY underneath the bar so all night long you can hear chairs scraping and the bass pounding from it, as well as from just down the road. I've travelled the world and I would have to say this was the LOUDEST place I have EVER stayed! Can't actually believe it. Don't know if it was just the crowd it attracts or what it was, but I just wouldn't recommend unless you plan on NO/NONE/ZERO sleep.

Good hostel. My only disappointment is that after telling the staff the night before we needed to leave at 8am and she told us she would be around - she wasn't and a friend of who happened to be around for some reason (but wasn't manning the counter or anything) hesitantly gave me 10,000 WON from her purse! I felt like a theif! Twas only 10,000 WON but not exactly the point!! Aside from that - the location is great and they were very friendly staff and owners who welcomed us.

Excellent! Loved staying there, was a nice place, comfortable, felt like a hotel to us (stayed in a private en-suite for a change at the end of our NZ holiday!) but still had the benefits of a travel desk and fun common room. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

I didn't believe earlier reviews about the dirty sheets, but unfortunately experienced it ourselves. Aside from that, the idiots who decided it was a great idea to begin partying outside our window on both nights we stayed, and the noise from downstairs common room that travelled all the way up to us on level three - it was fine. Gym was good considering barely any hostels I've stayed at throughout the world have had one and the rock climbing was great! Wouldn't recommend it unfortunately.

Good location, not in the centre of town but close to mount Edin and walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants in that area. Lots of parking too if you bring your own car/camper. Had an ensure room and it was fine, comfortable, clean, and had a nice deck you could sit out in the sun on. Overall would recommend!
