The best hostel we stayed at in Peru. The private double room was like a hotel. Thanks so much! The only thing to make the stay better would be an oven to warm the bread at breakfast.

Millhouse has a great vibe to it. Lots of things to do and people to meet. I can see why young people travelling stop there. Staff is helpful. They organize outings so you don't have to go far to get answers. If you are looking for quiet - this is not a place for you. They have 10:00 pm noise curfew that is not enforced. Everyone is clearly having a good time.

Overall good stay, but wasn't as easy to make friends with people staying in the same room as it was in other hostels for some reason. Also the bed setup with the wood and high bunks makes it extremely easy to smash your elbows/head if you're not a bit careful. Bar is good, bathrooms are AMAZING - clean, hot water. Gets a bit cold in the common areas, be prepared for that. Wifi is ok.

Stayed there 3 times during my stay in Peru, super comfortable beds with a partial privacy screen on bunks, ensuite bathroom had HOT WATER and good pressure shower, the bar had good food (more expensive than outside restaurants obviously) and a good social vibe some nights, met a few people playing in the beer pong tournament, the internet was fast and reliable but not accessible in most rooms. There was comfy bean bags and hammocks if you wanted to sit outside and use it.

The hostel is in a very good location in Cusco. Super close the the Plaza de Armas with the Catedral, some Museums, a bunch of shops and restaurants, and it's a relatively safe place. The hostel also has a bar/restaurant upstairs which is convenient for hanging out and meeting people and having a drink/meal. The only catch is that the hostel is kinda loud at night so bring some earplugs. Other than that, it was a awesome stay.

A little bit of noise in the rooms from the bar on busy nights, WiFi was a bit hit a miss and there was no real common area. Other than that it's a grand hostel and to get a good night's sleep before the Inca trail.

I would stay there again for the atmosphere and location. It's not a great hostel but at least there are bathroom in the room. It's super cold and they give you a comfort and a blanket to keep you warm. Only problem is that the blankets aren't clean or changed from guest to guest. Lockers are open what I didn't feel safe either. No wifi in the rooms and poor signal in the common areas too. Breakfast was ok.

Good mixture of party and relaxation! You can have fun at the bar upstairs but also enjoy a quiet night in your room.

Flexible booking is a con. Though there could be some discretion in amending bookings, like with most things in Peru they're just quick to take your money. Dirty bed linen and towels, noisy communal areas very late at night. The best things to be said are that they keep the bathrooms clean and the bar has live music and good food. Shame about everything else. Hostelworld also do little to mediate in light of problems. Won't use again or recommend.

The best hostel I've been to. Where do i start? The staff goes out of its way to help you, rooms are great (I'd recommend a four-person dorm); the bathroom is modern and clean; they have large open spaces with natural light, table tennis, hammocks, bean bags; a good breakfast and a decent bar which doubles as a club on party nights. The only downside I can think of is that music from the bar is a little loud if there's a party going on. If you have a ground floor room however, that's no biggie.

We enjoyed our short stay at this hostel. It was far better then some of the US Motels we've stayed in the past and would recommend this to anyone. We enjoyed a good night sleep and the staff was AWESOME. Lots of activities to do within this Hostel.

My friend and I stayed 3 nights here before our inca trek. We stayed in a private room with two beds for an unbelievable price. It was clean and staff was nice. After the trek we stayed at a nice hotel that was 90 USD per night and it wasn't that much fancier than the accommodations at milhouse. Would def recommend. Great location in cusco too!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. The 12bed dorm that you stayed at has two sinks, 2 toilets and 2 showers inside the room. The whole bathroom area is cleaned at least two times a day, and checked by our HKs 4 times a day. Of course sometimes they can get dirty without us knowing immediately, which is what probably happened. If we had had a heads up from you, we would have cleaned it at the moment to make you feel fully comfortable in your room of preference =). Safe travels! Jessica

If you've been to milhouse in BA prepare to be disappointed. The rooms in cusco are squishy and there was no social vibe. The milhouse tried to create a vibe by putting on events but no one seemed to go.

Really too much noisy, no naturel light in the rooms. Zero nights quiet, without someone shouting next the dors of the rooms. Breakfast and bar are nice.
