Be prepared to meet a ton of people and drink a lot. Drink deals and friendly staff who remember you. Restaurant food was great. Location of this hostel was perfect and very safe. It looks over Parque Kennedy which is home to a ton of cats/kittens who roam around the gardens. There is a nice pedestrian walk way with restaurants... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed at on my travels. The rooms were clean and maintained throughout my short stay.

I've been staying at the Pariwana Hostel in Lima since 2011 during extensive travel in South America. As plenty of satisfied guests have confirmed, the service, employees, accommodations, ambiance, food, local, etc. are all worthy of praise. However, no one seems to give credit to the cleaning staff, despite making their job anything but easy on a daily basis. I've... More

My friend and I booked this on Hostelworld and we were surprised at how true the good reviews were! First, the beds are so comfy! Earplugs are provided, your bed is made by housekeeping everyday (by the way, the ladies of housekeeping are super nice), and the sheets are warm and comfy. The wooden lockers are obviously custom: a shelf... More

Stayed here for just 2 nights and was impressed with how clean it was and the friendly buzz.
