Aengus Gormley thinks…

"Nice, secure hostel with good dorms - there are plug sockets inside the lockers which is a big plus. Nice terrace upstairs with a bar and a table tennis table. Bathrooms are excellent."

Liked: The Hostel is clean and is one of those megahostels. It is big and very well organized. You can leave your backpacks and just go to Machu Pichu or wherever. They have a big storage room. You have everything in there and lots of activities and parties going on all the time.

Disliked: Everything is good.

Liked: lots of activites on site, good bar. hot showers though not always very clean. This is due to people tramping mud up the walls, not the poor cleaners.

Disliked: There were quite a few people with problems paying, being charged the wrong amount. also you often have to move rooms each day so you have to check out and check back in which is incredibly annoying. This is not a place to syay if you want peace and quiet.

Liked: Nice hostel. Very big and very clean. Lots of activities going on each day. Very professionally run.

Disliked: Found it hard to meet people because it was so big. Good for tours but maybe not for single travellers. Ended up having 10 person dorm to myself for 2 nights.

Liked: Coming from hostels that seemed more like backyards than decent places to stay, Pariwana seemed almost luxurious. Nice place, love the little "patio" in the middle with sofas, pillows and table tennis and other games.

Disliked: The mattresses were a little hard, but not uncomfortable.

Lee Cole

11 June 2010 Lee would recommend this property

Liked: A nice hostel with an open courtyard in the middle. At first I thought this would make it a cold hostel, but this isn´t the case. Good bar offering something every night but the rooms are more than quiet enough (well the ones I had), plenty of computers, a pool and table tennis table, friendly staff and always good to know it has hot showers with good pressure..... Would recommend it to others.

Disliked: Lee left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great place! Big courtyard with games, nice TV room, good bar, decent kitchen. Tea and coffee available all day which is nice. Only complaints would be that sometimes the hot water isn't all that hot and the bar tend to mess up/forget food orders. Other than that a great place to stay whilst in Cusco - much better location than Loki. Don't stay in The Point, it's rank.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
