Pariwana Hostel Cusco lies in a colonial house built in the 16th century. 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 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.
Without doubt Pariwana Hostel Cusco is the most stylish hostel in town!


We obviously offer, Free access to internet computers, Breakfast included served from 7am to 1 pm, Well equipped kitchen to cook with friends, Free Linens, Laundry service available, 24 hour reception and security, Free security lockers in your rooms, Airport transportation available, Hot showers, Friendly staff that speaks English and Low cost phone calls, Funky bar and terrace, Common areas include classic games (pool table, ping-pong and fuss ball), Daily Peruvian food (international menu also available)

We invite the fellow backpackers to relax on 'our travelers' nest': get together in our lounge-bar area to meet new people with Pisco Sours in hand; enjoy our house-brew coffees in Lima and our local hot energizer, Mate de Coca, in Cusco; spend time with our multilingual staff looking to help you find your way through Peru; dare to learn about Peruvian gastronomy through our daily dinners (you will not regret it); or just crawl to our consistent breakfast to mild down your hangover. Come with us to breathe, eat, sweat, sleep, and get the real Peruvian-trendy experience.
