I traveled on my own through Peru for a month and stayed at the Pariwana for 5 nights, interrupted by one night in Aguas Calientes for Machu Picchu.
The Pariwana was great. They had hot showers, something very precious in Peru. The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly and they have a lot of activities that you can join. Also, there is a large bar and a huge courtyard where you can hang out and meet people. The Pariwana also has a fantastic movie room with tons of pillows and really comfortable bean bag chairs.
What made this hostel stand out for me was how easy it was to meet people when I stayed there. When you are travelling by yourself, being at a social hostel is key. This isn't the Loki, so it's a little less crazy, but still has enough going on to keep you from getting lonely.

The beauty of our hostel can be compared to any 5-star hotel in the city of Cusco, but with the atmosphere and vibe of our guests and the Pariwana experience.The house has an internal patio surrounded by stone archways in both the first floor and in the balconies of the second floor. Our restaurant and bar-lounge are located in the same salons where Viceroys used to dine with the local nobility. It is said that there is a secret passage between the house and the closest convent. Supposedly, it was built by the last Viceroy, Abascal, as he new his days were counted. Pariwana Cusco is located in the heart of Cuzco’s Historical District: only 2 blocks away from the main plaza (Plaza de Armas). The hostel is surrounded by the typical Cuzco architecture and scenery.
