The hostel was in a super location (in the old town) and the air con was amazing. But the drinks at the moving bar were super expensive
nice family run hostel, willing to help you with things, nice not to live in a bunk bed for a while and have a proper bed, easy to meet fellow travelers. A little expensive but would stay here again
Shocking! I'm not one to complain about petty things such as leaches in the 'shower', filth, leaking roof, no water,empty bars going til 6am; these things occasionally happen! What annoyed me were having to keep my valuables on me 24/7(no lockers + no security), being ripped off (£13 to be escorted to a market very easy to walk to), having to agree with the owner all the time so he didn't verbally attack me, no breakfast as advertised same $ DON'T STAY HERE
Great location, helpful staff, a party hostel but not over the top, nice breakfast! I've stayed at the loki too in Lima and i would by far choose to stay in the pariwana over the loki
Nice hostel, social and great kitchen facilities... doesn't have a pool like the wild rover but still had a nice stay there
Standard party hostel, i personally prefer wild rover round the corner
GRINGOS IS THE BEST
Extremely helpful! Couldn't thank Liam enough for going out of his way to post a parcel for me over a week after i left! THANKYOU!!! Other than that very nice hostel with VERY helpful staff
great location, great food and great wifi, friendly owners and very easy to sign upto sanboarding and other excursions through the hostel. Would re-visit
Nice hostel, good location, friendly staff, nice bar, nice dog just no lockers but no problems! would stay again
Lovely hostel cats! Very nice hostel with very helpful staff the only downside was that despite the hostel having everything you need the atmosphere wasn't really there, maybe it had something to do with the fact the tv room and the bar were together. If i had been traveling alone it would have been hard to meet others there. Really near the baths!
Friendly hostel with a good feeling of 'community', super comfy beds, nice bathrooms although there were not enough to go round... so if you had a bad belly bad things could happen if you couldn't hold on. I wasn't aware that i had to pay for breakfast which was annoying but it was nice even so. Very much appreciated the all day coffee.
Lovely hostel dog (pisco)!
Nice hostel with a nice pool, however the only 'chill out sofa' was located next to a very big, loud speaker playing a very bad mix of music all day. There kitchen was very convenient however never had tiradito or chicken wings and sometimes no mexican burger. The staff were fun and sociable however one of the security men was a complete spasticated mongoloid who thought it a good idea to wack kind dogs for his own sick pleasure, i wanted to bend him over and use his stick on him...

Every day there was some kind of Peruvian ceremony with a band, parade, (sometimes with free champagne and food) starting at around 9am. I very much enjoyed this i felt like a cultured backpacker getting a true taste of Peruvian spirit; however my roommates were often tired from sexing the night before so didn't participate (i even watched on occasions). Overall i really enjoyed this hostel, the owners are very helpful. bar duck bar duck bar duck!!!!! quack quack

A place to ruin your liver and bank balance through your bar tab. Good parties, good themes and excellently speedy sick clear ups in the toilets for the few who have one too many. They also have a hair room which is super handy when getting ready. would stay here again if in La Paz
Gringos is a home away from home, it has all the great aspects of other good hostels put into one. Mike the solo member of staff is a crazy man that makes the hostel as super as it is! Thankyou for having me for a whole month (i booked 2 nights) and i'll be back sometime in the new year! Kate
hmmmm.... pro's - the beds were comfy and the hostel made booking buses and the mine tour easy con's - no hot water, some of the staff talked no English, the use of Skype was banned, the guide on the arranged mine tour and for no visible reason asked me if i was pregnant whilst doing my waist belt for my flash light on the smallest notch and starring at my tits - turd monger!
Excellent hostel with really welcoming staff, very easy to meet people, nice activities. Seemed to be one of the busiest hostels in town for good reason. Would highly recommend and return if i was to go back to Mendoza!
nice hostel with a good cooking area
I was mostly either drunk, hungover, being sick, kissing boys, trying to kiss boys, acquiring drunk/hungover injuries around the hostel (i fell out the shower, had a falling out with the locker as it gashed my back, and got electrocuted with the dodgy switch in the bathroom) or rarely attempting to be productive going on an organised tour... the tango show was great though! If you want to experience the above this is the place for you... Milhouse is a bad idea for sobar cultured stop overs!
Very nice hostel, bit expensive but they had pet turtles!
Books was a great place; you were able to book any tour here, meet people, have a drink and even get information on less common things to do - i wanted to buy Rio 3 UFC tickets and Lobo (member of staff) took me all the way to the ticket center on a bus so i was able to find my way without getting lost. I also got very drunk and had a nice breakfast to fix me in the morning. I would highly recommend and come back if on route again. Cheers! Kate
The owner was really helpful and helped me plan a lot of my future route through northen argentina and bolivia. The hostel was really comfortable and moments away from the bus stand so very convenient. There was also a very nice puppy to keep you entertained. Thankyou!
The staff and the breakfast were great, everything else is in progress as it is a new hostel.
Excellent staff, always out to help! Lovely animals! Great place to meet people and a full timetable of evening events to keep busy. I was even sorted out with a bjj training session i only made it to once due to the second time suffering a major hangover (send my appologies for not coming to the second session! and thanks for having me there). Also sorry i didn´t stay longer to paint the toilets! Great time! Much thanks! Kate
Great hostel! The breakfast was a great way to save money on lunch as it lasted so long and the free cocktail hour was a great way to meet people and to pre drink for the rest of the evening! The staff were great and the dogs were full of character. Highly recommended!
Very nice hostel, cheap beer, good location and good showers... easy to meet people but also easy to get stuck and miss any arranged pub crawls so therefor i think the hostel should create it's own pub crawl or arrange for everyone to go together several nights a week. Overall experience = super
super helpful staff, picked me up from the airport for free. Arranged that the 'beer man' came for us for a take away and beer night. The aircon is amazing during july! Just very far from town but perfect for airport stop overs.
Evershine in off season is for sure the only place you will find any kind of backpacker social life which is especially important when travelling solo, i had a good time here but moved round the corner as it was cheaper! That didn't stop me coming back round in the evening to chill for a beer with the guys staying at Evershine and it was really cool that i was still welcome! thanks for my stay here!
The hostel was very nice, hot water. There is a curfew at 11pm which my room mate kept missing or got lost which the owner rightfully wasn't too happy but if you get in on time there are no problems! All in all i enjoyed my stay here!

The hostel is still not yet finished but is a cool place to chill out, the staff are nice!
Owners were really friendly, place is lovely and chilled out, great place to meet other backpackers and you have free breakfast and lunch every day included in the cost. It is a perfect place for escaping the crazy town!
The reception guys were very helpful, when helping me book my train away. the hostel was quite hard to find if you walk from the metro so get a rickshaw. It was a good place for a quick stop over and a drink with fellow backpackers however the roof top terrace which was advertised is now literally a rooftop with some chairs as apparently the neighbours complained or something about thew noise which is sad ( it think it should be put back!)! All in all a useful place to stop.
This is what Paris needed, a social hostel with a bar and mini discotheque! I would reccomend staying here if you're tr4avelling on your own , It's not so central but i don't think the other hostels are either.

The layout of the hostel was very nice indeed. And the guy who greeted us was extremely helpful with ideas on what to do in Lagos. However it's not a particulary socal hostel and has a number of 'house rules' which were slightly boarding school like. Had i known the hostel was going to be like this i would have stayed at the monkey hostel down the street. This is where it's happening. Stay there is you wanna drink and not abide by strict rules! Location is good though
Amazing hostel, had a really good time in this hostel. Managed to make a party every night and see the sights in the day. Very easy to meet people so for lone travellers a very good idea, Staff were very tollerant when i had a few too many! This hostel is not so much for the quiet early bad time type people. Also the key system is excellent with no need to bring your own padlocks. The lady who makes dinners in the evening is a hero! Her chicken and asparagus pie was awesome - recipe please??
Awesome hostel, i didn't have enough money to depart and my bank card wasn't working so they trusted me to pay when i got home which i did but amazing trust! I stayed in the open air dorm which was really nice. Good atmosphere in the evening with dinner for everyone at a reasonable price. Would definately return! thankyou!

The lady who runs this hostel was very helpful. On enight we turned up with no booking and could only afford dorm room price so she gave us a single room and an extra matress so we could stay. Not much of social scene around the hostel though. I would imagine the hostels more central would do
cool hostel, caught up with some guys from earlier on on our trip!
great hostel, who can organise everything for you from excursions to booking your next bus or train to the nest destination. owners were great really helpful. had a really good time there.
