Pariwana Hostel Lima



Hostelz.com's Review

Pariwana Hostel Lima is an excellent, lively hostel in the heart of Miraflores. Comfortable beds, its central location, and a well-stocked bar with frequent activities make this a great base from which to start your Peruvian adventure.

The Location

Located in the top corner of Parque Kennedy, the hostel is perfectly situated in the safe, touristy area of Miraflores. From here you are a less than five-minute walk to a number of bars and restaurants, and on the corner from which the buses depart to the historical centre of the city.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are a good size with comfortable mattresses. They can get a little hot at night during the summer, and as the hostel overlooks the main park in Miraflores, opening the window lets in a lot of noise. Large lockers, available in the rooms, will fit your large backpack. There are also a number of smaller lockers in the reception area that have built-in plugs, ideal for recharging your electronic devices.

Common Spaces

The common spaces are numerous and excellent. On the top floor is the roof terrace, where you can find a number of tables with parasols to keep off the sun during the day. There are a number of sun loungers and comfortable seats, and you can even play table-tennis out here for free.

Inside is a bar, which is well stocked and offers happy hour discounts on a nightly basis. There are also regular drinking games organised by the hostel that encourage backpackers to interact. You'll also find here a pool table that is free for all guests to use. There are also a few tables around which people can gather over a few Pisco Sours. Alongside this area are three communal computers with internet access, although only one of them worked during our stay. There is Wi-Fi available throughout the hostel if you have your own device.

The hostel organises frequent activities included walking tours of various districts of Lima. There is also an in-house travel agent that will help you book tours or onward bus tickets.


Pariwana Hostel is a friendly, sociable hostel with all the facilities that ensure a pleasant stay in Lima. Add to this a location that can't be beat, and it is no surprise that this is one of the most popular hostels in Peru's capital.

Great location and dorms!
Awesome vibe at Pariwana hostel. The beds were very comfortable and the hostel was located a close walk to the beach and other main attractions in miraflores. Good breakfast, too!

The best hostel I've ever stayed.
Pariwana hostel is genial. They got it all totally right. Nice bar and restaurant. But still there's a kitchen where you can cook if you like ... though prices for food are quite cheap, so you probably won't want to. There's something going on almost every night, and yet, the bedrooms are quiet, and the beds are really comfortable ... they have 2 pillows!! Atmosphere couldn't be better, and also the staff -- just amazing. clean, organized and secure.

It has the best location ever, and the dorms were really comfort and clean. There's a really nice terrace and bar with different table games, a kitchen, and a cosy TV room with a lot of movies! Very recommended!
