Very good party hostel. The rooms are spacious, but smell à bit funny. The beds are really nice and breakfast is okay. Not much to complain about.
Wifi was patchy and staff seemed puzzled by how to reboot the router. But hell, we weren't in Cusco to peruse the Internet. Would have been nice, though, to check email more readily. Great hostel otherwise. My favorite bolthole of choice when next I am in Cusco. And I shall be in Cusco again. Beds were comfy and well outfitted with individual reading light and power point. Well done, Millhouse.
Simply AmAzing - staff are fantastic with a classic atmosphere. Quality Bar. Special mention for Luciana and the watch dog REX, made our stay very pleasant indeed. With love, Harry & Nathaniel xox

Awesome hostel to either chill out or party in. The free working tour was very insightful. just be mindful that the rubbish bins are emptied regularly in the bathrooms so that they are not overflowing with toilet paper.
They dont have an appropiate kitchen to cook so you have to expend extra money to buy lunch or dinner.

I had a good stay here. Found the hostel to be clean and easy to live in. Not a huge party hostel but definitely enough going on that if you want to party you will.
Super clean, great location and very helpful staff who helped us book our amazon tour and helped us find our way around Cusco. The atmosphere was good at night although felt like people come and go just because of the huge size of the place and was hard to meet people because of it but all in all a good hostel
If a party hostel, with on site bar, weekend dj, foosball and pool tables, themed nights, jaegerbombs, hammocks and a ball pool is your thing, then this is the hostel for you...very knowledgable, and multi lingual reception staff, lots of info on tours departing from Cusco - can book for you from hostel - free wifi and pcs in reception. Decent breakfast. Really well located. Decent dorms, clean beds, thick duvets. Was a bit loud and a veryyoung crowd, so not quite what I was looking for...

The hostel is a bit more expensive than others in the area, but the atmosphere is definitely much livelier, with hammocks, table tennis, bar etc, they definitely pride themselves on being a social place.
This is an amazing hostel! It was my first time staying in a hostel and I believe I am now spoiled because I will compare every future one to this one and this one was off the charts in my opinion.
We had a great stay at Millhouse, loved everything about it! Only downside was the lack of heat. We stayed in the summer and it was still really cold in our room, so maybe pack some thermals :) But definitely stay here!!
Great hostal in Cusco, which is like a little oasis of its own. We arrived on the morning bus but had to wait until 1pm to check in which I personally think is a very late check in time compared to other hotels there and when most people arrived. We did however get to have a free breakfast. Wifi was overall pretty good. Got woken up every night by people banging on the front door endlessly to be let in. Hotel says the security is there all night though...
Pretty good value for the money. I slept in the 12 bed dorm. Kind of noisy of course but it was possible to make a cave of the bed (lower bunkbed) if you used a blanket. Was lightning and places to charge your stuff at every bed.
The dorm rooms, while not super spacious, are very nice and clean. Mattresses are big and comfy, beds are very solid, you don't even notice when someone on the top bunk moves or uses the ladder. The plywood surrounding each bunk is a nice touch for privacy, and the personal outlet and light are quite practical. Items at the pub/bar are reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If there was also a kitchen for guests to cook their own food, it would be the perfect hostel.
Great place to stay. Located near the Plaza De Armas and next to a laundry (needed after Inca Trail), and not far from supermarket and excellent San Pedro market. Great facilities - en-suite rooms, large security lockers, breakfast included, on-site bar and restaurant, pool table, bag storage when on Inca Trail, hammock chill out areas. Good social atmosphere. Bedrooms are great - privacy screens on beds, own light and socket, thick douvet - good value.
The beds are a bit weird, and it feels a little claustrophobic. Not enough keys to the door, a little weird also. Other than that ok enough, but we stayed in better hostels in cusco.
Nice building, good rooms, good bar area. Staff are rude and provide poor service, both at the reception area and the bar.
I enjoyed my stay here. In the dorms each bunk has a little light. Location is good and the courtyard is nice. Blankets are warm
Excellent hostel, really well-located near Plaza de Armas. Big lockers in the room (we stayed in the 12 bed mixed room). The bar was excellent, cheap drinks and beer, really good-cheap-fancy food. Nice and friendly staff (speaking both spanish and english). They have a travel agency associated to the hostel, we did and recommend the 4x4 trail to Maras-Moray and the Valle Sagrado tour. Negative point? Not great bathroom. Not a big trouble, although. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!!!
