“Great Location! Great Hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights on a stop over in Lima before heading to Cusco. We stayed in Room #9, which is a private room with 2 twin beds and a bathroom for S115 per night. Hostel is perfectly located in Miraflores and is very safe. It's easy to walk to many of the sites from here, and the staff helps with anything you need. They helped us get taxis and gave us maps and directions to many sites. I only had a few issues with the hostel. Our room faced a side street, but wasn't far from the main street, so it did get quite loud. Closing the window helped, but then the room got hot. Not a fault of the hostel, they can't really control the outside noise. In our room, we didn't get a strong wifi signal, so we had to go to the bar to use the internet. Not a bad thing, it was a great bar with affordable drinks! The free breakfast was enough to get the day started, and you could order something more if you needed it. Overall it was a great place to stay and I would stay again!

Really friendly staff, even the cleaning staff are so friendly! Beds are made everyday which I've never experienced in any other hostel! Both big and small lockers available. Clean rooms and bathrooms Lovely rooftop area with ping pong table and deck chairs. Great location, close to lots of nice restaurants and even a cinema. Good free breakfast and good events on most nights in the week, a good place to meet people!

Stayed with my partner after staying at Kokopelli and this was way better. Clean rooms and bathroom (male & female bathrooms are separate which I think is good) good breakfast with really helpful staff. We were in the big dorm which had plenty of room. Would recommend this to anyone going to lima and would definitely stay again myself if heading back to lima!

This place is proper crazy, we only had a couple of nights in Lima and unfortunately due to my old age combined with our punishing schedule, we were too knackered to join in with the frivolity and hit the sack for midnight. Our room was located bang outside the bar/ rooftop patio area and celebrations went on long and hard into the night with what sounded like a Congo going on immediately outside our door.

The dorms were clean/ tidy and the hostel has game's, events, and activities going on daily. It's certainly a great sociable place to meet people but certainly not a place to come if you in search of some tranquillity. Breakfast was the usual standard bread, cereal and coffee affair and is served up in the bar which is two floors up and is an excellent place to have a couple of beers, play a game of pool and observe the hustle and bustle in Kennedy square and Miraflores. Free shots are also dished out like they are going out of fashion - during our stay a national earthquake drill was undertaken and every person in the city was turfed out into the streets which became totally gridlocked - Result: Free shots on the house in Pariwana.

Everyone at Pariwana was super friendly and helpful. The hostel had a feeling of home and I was very comfortable just hanging out and relaxing in the bar area when I didn't feel like touring. The staff was very interactive (Domi and Michael in particular were great as well as a few others) and the place was clean. There's a kitchen where you can order food if you don't feel like leaving the hostel which can be very convenient.

Really great location in central Miraflores, and lots of helpful staff on hand. It is good hostel to meet people and have a good time.....the roof top is just great, lots of tables and chairs, a ping pong table, and a covered little portion with bean bag chairs (though it barely ever rains in Lima!)

If you are exhausted and just want a good nights sleep, this may not be the best place if you are a light sleeper, but it's a great social place, with great hangout spaces, and social events every night (they don't go too late, i think the idea is to start at the hostel, and then go out from there...)

FIRST IMPRESSION: Really nice building in a centrally loacted area. Good security and really friendly staff (who make great Oreo Milkshakes!).

STAFF: Really great, good fun at the bar and all speak English.

DORMS: Lovely comfortable beds with chargers in the lockers and a small shelf next to the bed, which is always handy! :)

BREAKFAST: We never ate here for breakfast but we did eat tea here, from the menu, which was really nice.

FACILITIES; Wifi was good in the rooms, the parties and activities were a great way of meeting new people. The location is perfect for all food / shopping needs and a short walk to the main Malecon.

INTERNET: Computers there for people to use and wifi in all the building.

OTHER; The only thing that I can say was bad about this place was that the day after a big party, the cleaner came in at 09.30 hoovering and talking. When people have been encouraged to party and drink, its a bit cruel waking them up hungover to the sound of Henry Hoover!!!

Would you stay again? Yes
