"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 linen, beds and rooms were really nice and comfy. Awesome courtyard with lots of room to sit around in the sun and relex, or play some table tennis or fooseball. The bar/dining room had a great atmosphere - good food and drinks and staff. Probably the best hostel we stayed at in South America!

Disliked: Nothing negative to say!

Liked: Pariwana served us perfectly for our stay in Cusco, so much so that we returned after Machu Licchu and didn't want to leave! There facilities are second to none - great bar/lunch room, beautiful courtyard for hanging out, fast Internet in a spacious room, secure with lockers in room an reception, helpful staff on hand to help you prep for your Machu Picchu journey. Very hard to fault! Possibly the best hostel I've stayed at...in the world!

Disliked: Very few things, the ventilation in the bathrooms wasn't great (existent?), which caused the occasion unpleasant smell in the rooms, but you could probably attribute that to the age of the building...

Liked: Great atmosphere. Large outside area with comfty lounges so you can talk with others. Cosy internet and t.v room lounges. Pariwana had activities on each night. The food and drinks were great at the bar, cheap and delicious! I was there most nights. The BEST hot showers we had in a longtime. When you are travelling for a month it was great to finally have HOT and good pressured showers :)

Liked: My favorite review is about that I could do the check-in earlier than 13:00h, once my bed was available already. Really kind people as staff! The beds are amazing! Very comfortable and soft. Rooms very calm and quite, so was good to relax. Great hot showers and breakfast Ok. The location also is fine... about 5min walking from Plaza de Armas... and They have an ATM inside the hostel, cashing out in dolars and soles. That was awesome!

Disliked: Nothing very bad, but the water from the showers, sometimes, oscillated between so cold and extremely hot.

Liked: The hostel was in a great location by Plaza San Francisco. The courtyard was a great meeting place as was the bar on the second floor. It had lots of amenities and the staff was very helpful. They even stored my luggage for the day a week before my stay as I was in transit to southern Peru.

Disliked: Mark left no negative feedback.

Liked: Lots of activities to take part in daily, both during the daytime and evening, really enjoyed the quiz night! The computer room was really useful and showers were hot and there were plenty of bathrooms too! Hostel very well managed considering the large amount of guests and good breakfast with hot chocolate, variety of breads and cereal! Great location in Cusco.

Disliked: Kitchen slightly dirty sometimes and often lacked equipment. Possibly some more notices needed in dorms reminding guests to be considerate if they return late at night, some people were noisy; rustling bags, switching lights on and being generally loud.

Liked: Really comfy beds. Excellent facilities. Spotlessly clean. Good areas for mixing (bar, courtyard etc) but staff were good at keeping noise down and lights out when it got later. Good location.

Disliked: Lots of disturbed sleep: hostel not too noisy, it was simply due to the fact that on both nights of my stay other travellers in dorm were up and about at 4am, then others at 7am, packing to leave for trips / treks.

Liked: The staff were amazingly nice; I got off a bus at 5am and they allowed me to sleep in their activity room until 9am as well as use their showers and baggage storage. The room (all girls dorm) was incredibly clean, convenient (every bed has a powerpoint) and both the ensuite and shared showers were hot. The laundry service was quick and clean, and there was a decent free breakfast and wifi in the rooms.

Disliked: They (and I) forgot to take off the 10% deposit when making final payment.
