Liked: Great place with very comfortable beds & soft, new linens. Super friendly & helpful staff. Great location too.

Disliked: It was a little too loud if you have a room off the courtyard. Ask for a room in the back if you want to get a better night sleep.

Liked: One of the best hostels we have stayed in in South America. Very clean, lovely courtyard to hang out in, great location and friendly staff. We moved here from the Wild Rover and it was sp much better (and we are Irish).

Disliked: We also stayed at the Pariwana in Lima and in both of the hostels there were big groups of a certain nationality who didnt mix with anyone and who were quite ignorant in general, but that seems to be the norm for them.

Liked: As hostels go in the area, its quite expensive but you can tell the difference. Stayed in two other hostels and this was by far the best. Shower good, bed good, internet access good, room good, cleanliness good, just good.

Disliked: Price was white expensive but as I said, you get what you pay for.
