Full disclosure: I'm not a party animal. If I was, I think that Pariwana would be just the place for me. They seem to have lots of activities going on, an in-house bar, lots of games, etc. If you're the type of person who wishes that "Spring Break" was a place instead of a concept, then this is the hostel for you.
Unfortunately, I am not that person. While my room was clean and the bed above-average, the hostel itself is a bit on the noisy side. The noise I can deal with, but the real bummer here was that the hostel somehow messed up my reservation, putting my sisters in a room that had only one available bed. (There was someone else at the front desk with the same problem, so part of me wonders if they over-book, assuming that there will be no-shows.) This was incredibly unfortunate, and caused a bit of a headache, although the staff did eventually sort things out.
The breakfast was nothing special, but you can pay to have made-to-order omelets, bacon, etc. Showers were just okay, the staff was hit and miss (though there's lots of turnover as they utilize volunteers), but the location was fantastic. All in all, this was just a "meh" kinda place.
