Pariwana is located in Miraflores and right near Parque Kennedy. The hostel provides a free breakfast (bread, jams etc), decent showers, lockers in rooms, and events in the evenings. Security is good also, I even got a key to the room which is unusual compared to other hostels I stayed at in Peru(!) The common area of the hostel is... More

I stayed there for 4 days and had a great experience. Staff is super friendly (both locals and volunteers) and the location is superb. I stayed before at Pariwana Cuzco and both had the same good quality. Dorms are big and comfy, I stayed in a 14 bed dorm and it was fine... my only complaint would be the small... More

Pariwana is a great deal for Lima. $12 for a bed and free breakfast. Rooms and facilitates are kept clean every day. However, make sure not to go through the hostel to make travel plans such as tours, buses and cabs! They can take up to a 50% commission without explaining it. Hail a cab on the street, and book...

Love this place. Great place to meet and greet with other travelers and enjoy the fast paced Lima atmosphere. Spacious rooftop, with a bar and restaurant with fair prices on location, I would highly recommend. Great staff. Great times.

Best place we stayed in Peru. Staff is warm and welcoming. Breakfast is basic but you can add some money and buy an omlet or a fruit salad. The location is amazing, right on Kennedy park. Room is clean. The place is a bit noisy due to location, and parties on the rooftop.
