This Hostel is really well located in the city centre with walking distance from everything. The building is really charming, with a good restaurant-bar and internet access. The staff is really cool particularly Danny who works at the entrance. If you have a question, need directions or suggestions, he is the go to guy. The beds are really comfortable.

You actually don't have to leave this hostel to have a great time. I was a bit reluctant to stay at a party hostel, but you couldn't hear noise from their bar even in the nearby rooms. The beds are SO comfortable- I wanted to steal the comforter (but I didn't ;) ) Really tasty food in the restaurant and...

I stayed six nights at the Pariwana Hostel in Cusco. Not only the people I met but also the super friendly staff (most of them speak English very well) made my time at the Pariwana Hostel memorable. It offers everything a traveler or tourist is looking for. Rooms: Very clean, big lockers with plug to charge your devices, suite, private...

We spent a week in a private room here, they were bight and clean and towels came as a plus. Staff were constantly cleaning communal bathrooms & asking if we wanted our room cleaned. Room was off the main courtyard and we never had a problem with noise. With the exception of the staff at reception, staff were friendly -...

Such a unique hostel in the heart of Cuzco. Rooms were big and spacious and the hostel itself was very spread out. The bar served great food which could be added to your hostel tab and also had night time drinking activities.

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
