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.


Great beds!


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.


Ok hostel in the city centre of Cuzco. Always a guard at the door during night time. Good bar area with reasonable prices. Stayed in a room for three with private bathroom and the room was overall ok. Extremely lousy electrical sockets for recharging your stuff and very slow wifi.


Party hostel!! Don't expect to catch any sleep in the 12 bed dorm: the bar upstairs plays loud music from 7am until 2.30am! Ear plugs don't help. The 6 bed dorm was much better though, but this one was on the other side of the building. Staff is very friendly and helpful! Good location. Nice cinema room. Good sanitary. Wifi is okay. Too bad that breakfast is very punctual (at exactly 10.30 am all the food is removed from the counter) while they're not so punctual with closing the bar at night.


We had a great stay in this hostel, the room (Double private) was great, staff very friendly and funny. Food in the restaurant very good, breakfast ok. We can really recommend this hostel!!


We had a great time at the bar. We definitely like the tap card. Which allows you to pay at the end of your stay. The WiFi was okish, we always had warm water. We stayed there only two nights. In those two nights the toilet was cleaned, but not the rest. Not sure if this is on a different rotation. Mattresses were comfy. It was a bit cold at night though. Definitely needed the thick duvet.


Good facilities but unfortunately no kitchen for guests to use, have good food and bar area with plenty of friendly like minded travellers to talk to. Run amazing tours with really helpful staff always available.


We had an absolutely great time in Milhouse. The staff were lovely, the location was perfect, it was great having the bar and pool table (even though it needs some adjusting!) And pingpong downstairs. Breakfast was good and even though we were in a 12 bed dorm, there is quite a lot of privacy in the way of chip boards between bunks. Hot showers and good toilets. Was a great place to acclimatize to the altitude-make sure you spend 3 or 4 days just chilling and drinking water before doing anything
