  • Staff received a "Good" rather than an "Excellent" due to limited English among some of the staff. Everyone was nonetheless very friendly and helpful as much as possible! Great atmosphere and events every night.

  • Pariwana could definitely use more staff. The amount of time we spent in the reception room trying to check in/out, doing anything in the reception room was absurd. Our second time checking in we stood there for over 20 minutes before they even started the paperwork for us to get into our reserved room.

  • Great location - close to everything! Security was always at the door (maybe not always awake, but someone was there checking wristbands). They say you get free breakfast, but it's only tea, coffee, and rolls. You will have to pay extra for eggs, bacon, toast, etc. My only complaint was that they have "quiet hours" starting at 10pm where they kick everyone out of the halls, turn off the lights, but continue to blast music from the bar until wee-hours in the AM! Get a room away from the bar!

  • Solo female traveller. Although it was a bit bigger of a place than I would have liked, there were still quiet areas to read and relax, and it was nice to have a bar full of other travelers to go to when I needed social time. The staff was exceptionally helpful; there is even a separate desk near the reception where you can go for help to plan your next excursion in Cusco. Nancy knows everything! :) Thanks of making my mountain biking trip possible!

  • I love the energy of the hostel, and love that you offer cheap (but good) food, a movie room, an internet room, and group activities.

  • Pariwana Hostel Cusco has a great location in the middle of the city center. It has awesome old facilities with nice hangaround areas during day time.
