After failing to find a double room in our 1st choice hostel in Cusco, we searched out the Pirwa Prada Hostel in Miraflores (careful there's x2 Pirwa's in Miraflores) based on our satisfactory stay in it's sister hostel in Cusco. Although the hostel appeared quite empty the staff informed us we were fortunate to bag the last room albeit with... More

I stayed 2 nights here. A bit dark and dingy in the reception area. My dorm (I had it to myself for both nights) was on the top floor, opening onto a little patio. Hardly anyone else staying there (although it was booked out by a big group the next night). Owner was helpful with a bit of information, spoke... More

We stayed here for 1 night, and what a night it was. After a night of partying on 'Pizza Street', we came back to our room (2nd floor) and tried to get some shut-eye for an early morning. Unfortunately that didn't happen. The windows in our room didn't really serve a purpose as the sound from the busy road entered... More

We stayed there 4 nights. The hostal is loud at night sometimes and the thin walls do not help. We were on the second floor and we could hear everything on the first floor. The breakfast is super simple and it is hard to get full. The staff are helpful. The shared bathroom is ok. There were two showers and... More

My partner and I stayed at Pirwa for two nights in Feb 2012 and it was just ok. Overall, it was probably worth it for the cheap price and the super convenient location. Aldo, the shared showers were a decent temperature and the staff were friendly. However there was no fan in the room so it was difficult to sleep... More

My boyfriend and I actually stayed here twice on our trip - had to go back because the staff were so nice and helpful (flexible too)! The beds are comfortable, the water is hot, the wifi works great and there's breakfast. Location is right by Kennedy Park in Miraflores, so that made things easy. Will definitely stay there again next... More
