Beautiful building with a doorman 24-7. The atrium areas tend to amplify sound, a problem for those trying to sleep (late night drinkers please stay in the bar!). Great facilities. Easily booked an afternoon horseback ride at the travel desk for reasonable price. Our private room was very clean. The bar upstairs has a great view of the surrounding area (the hostel is three blocks from Plaza de Armas, touristic center of Cusco). Good food. Friendly staff. Friendlier bar staff.
The hostel is really well-located, the rooms are comfortable and i appreciated the WC inside the room :) it has a great breakfast, the best I've seen through peru, bolivia and chile! The wifi isnt perfect but you can use the desktops of the hostel at all times. It has everything you need, really enjoyed my stay.

Everything is really good there according to Peruvian standards, but they should invest a little bit more and offer internet in the rooms... The WIFI only works in common areas and its not that fast.
Nice hostel in Cusco with good wifi and own bar.
A nice big facility, they have a tour company next to reception that is extremely helpful-even if your not using their tours-which are really a good value. The hostal staff speaks good English and is happy to help with anything you need. The free cusco tour was AWSOME. I would recommend this hostal to anyone, even the large bunk room is nice, showers and baths are clean with lots of hot water. Nice relaxing space, also good food at the bar. Don't miss brick oven pizza night.

The place was gorgeous. It would have been a plus if we had been able to check in earlier (since we arrived at 6 am), but the room was occupied so it wasn't their fault. A few minuses though: breakfast wasn't very rich (there were only cereals with milk, bananas, watermelon, butter, jam and the bread was a bit hard); it was kind of noisy at night, and the sacred valley expedition we booked with the agency located in the hotel was very so-so. Nice location though.
Directly in the city center surrounded by many shops, laundry service etc. Hostel offers great breakfast included but also a lot of options to buy good food at the bar. The beds are really comfortable and also seperated with wooden walls, what gives you a good amount of privacy. In addition light and electricity at every bed. There are good parties at the bar but its not an insane, mental party hostel. Reception staff was really friendly. Dont book overpriced bus tickets via the hostel.
Stayed here twice (both before and after the inca trail). First we were in a 4 bed dorm and then a double. Both sets of rooms were clean and nice. The dorm room provides cages for storing things and here are lockers near reception for storing valuables if you're going on a trek etc. Not an ideal place if you are catching a night bus as there aren't any communal showers so you'll have to wait before you can use the bathrooms. Breakfast includes scrambled eggs. Can be very loud at night though.
I really like this hostel. The beds were reallt comfortable and the pods (your own powerpoint and light) were great. The breakfast wasnt aamazing but it sufficed. Definitely not a party hostel but is very close to the main plaza so you can easily go and get a drink or 2 from there. Staff were good and there's lots of good common areas with hammocks.
Very good location about two blocks from the Plaza de Armas. They have a travel agency in the hostel that is happy to answer questions even if you don't end up using them. Reasonable WiFi, towels provided (at least in privates), happy to call cheap taxis for you. I wouldn't mind some Peruvian craft beer in the bar.
the public toilet is clean, but the ensuit toilet/bathroom is quite dirty and disgusting
Everything was great. A little loud at night, but most reviews say its on the party-ish side of hostels. Hot water and good WiFi. Great breakfast with great views from the roof.
Millhouse was ok. Staff were good except the door guy who was less than disinterested. Beds ok and not much noise. The bathroom smelt a bit cause it had no window. Cool hostel to chill in. We came from another hostel just for the Saturday night. What a mistake! Absolutely dead. No atmosphere. No party. So good place to chill! The computers were fast too. If stay here again, its in a good location too. But Pariwana is better
Very friendly and helpfull staff. The atmosphere is really nice, breakfast is excellent, cafeteria is funny and pizzas delicious!!! Also the rooms are super clean, and the building is sooooo beautiful that you'll fall un love with Milhouse Cusco. Strongly recommend it!!!
Thought the Hostel was good and comfortable with a nice layout. The only thing I'd say is that it's a shame that the wifi doesn't reach the rooms, and also, I had a few days were there was no warm water. It got fixed and then the hot water disappeared again which wasn't great considering it wasn't the warmest of times while I was there. Blas was very helpful.
This is a big hostel, with maybe 150 guests at a time. Its a nice big colonial style home but a lot of young people stay here so it is a bit crazy. Very hard to keep this place clean and secure. They have a wristband system to distinguish guests but not much security other than that. Our window to our room did not lock. Room was very cramped like a jail cell. There are supposed quite hours but the bar blasts music 7am-2am while we were there, not to mention the bartender on the megaphone.
I stayed in 12 beds dorm right below the bar, it was noisy but bearable. Bed was comfortable, but pillow was not. Toilets and showers were clean. Breakfast good.
The breakfast is very average. The bread tastes stale, as though its been sitting around for weeks. Otherwise, the hostel itself is quite good. Lots of common areas and the private rooms are nice.
