We stayed at Pirwa during a unique time, since I'm pretty sure we were the only guests staying at the hostel during the train strike, but it was still a great place. The location is awesome (between the Plaza de Armas and the hot springs), but the hotel itself was peaceful, the beds were almost criminally comfortable and warm, there was always hot water (which admittedly might have been a bi-product of us being the only guests at the time), and the staff was helpful and friendly, never hesitating to give us a restaurant recommendation or some more clean towels. It admittedly may have been the circumstances, but Pirwa was truly a dream hostel.
