My second time in Cusco, my room was ready early, the staff was kind enough to help me on that, and help us with Machupichu tour, and room was clean, and public rooms were also well equipped, clean and plenty of them, enough for all of us. Thank you Pariwana for a great stay!

Fantastic place! Loved the rooms and atmosphere. Easy check in, same day washing service, taxi concierge, helpful and friendly staff. We even got our breakfast offered to take away as we were catching the early morning train. Lots of quirky design features and attention to detail. Safe environment and best hostel if you're visiting cusco!

Computer WIFI is good; coffee is strong with the baked banana bread; peoples' dirty coca tea mugs all over the hostel. The best shower room is the one on the left side in the back. It has extra floor space behind the closed door. Plus there's a long ledge above the sink to put your toiletries. Daily 10:00 night life...

Enjoyed my stay at the Pariwana hostel . The hostel offers clean dorms (stayed at an ensuite dorm), excursions, activities and a locker room where you can store your backpack during your trek to Machu Picchu for example. However it is not one of those party hostels, but enough travellers up for some drinks, pingpong and conversations.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 in 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. Pariwana Cusco is located in the heart of Cuzco’s Historical District: only 2 blocks away from the main plaza (Plaza de Armas). The hostel is surrounded by the typical Cuzco architecture and scenery. It is nearby several restaurants, drugstores and transportation facilities. ... more   less
