Gosh! Never in my life have I slept at such a disgusting dorm. Trash everywhere, old food in the corner, bathroom super dirty and smells like he door haven't been open for days.! I'm not picky but this experience is the worst I have had as a backpacker. It's does not live up to what Milhouse stand for.


This place literally has the best free breakfast in Peru. We stayed here before and after the Machu Picchu trek - was great for a night's sleep. The bar is ok for a few drinks as well.


This is Definitely a PARTY Hostel with Loud Echoing Center Common Areas (It seems like everyone is Yelling all the time from Early Morning to Late Night) The Dorms seem OK with Individual Plugs & Lamps so at least they are Trying, but they just can't avoid the Noise!! Only for Young Party Crowd!!


This is one of the more expensive hostels in Cusco however the bar serving food, cheap laundry service, decent breakfast that's included and it's location are excellent. I found some of the staff not as friendly as others and the wifi is very temperamental, you don't get service in the rooms. The tour company inside the hostel is also seriously overpriced, just walk to the main square to find cheaper prices for the same tours.


Nice hostel with helpful staff, close to the main square and a lively bar! The hostel was clean and tidy


Really clean, great set up for a hostel. Breakfast is bread/jam/fruit/cereal/coffee/tea and then you can pay a few more soles for additional food such as scrambled eggs. Good location.

Loved our stay at Milhouse, really cool building with lots of space and areas to sit in. Breakfast was great - free scrambled eggs to order! And the bar did great food and a good happy hour - during our stay the bar wasn't v busy so not really a 'party' hostel. Our private double room was great, big and clean and included towels.


One of the best experience in Hostels I had in south america! Just need to serve breakfast (which is an awesome breakfast, btw) earlier, since many tours leave before 7:30. Also, music goes on loud into the night, I dont have problems with sleeping, but if you do, better choose other place.


Hands down the best hostel i have ever been. First of all the staff is just perfect. They make you feel like home. Location is awesome, just a 5 minute walk from the main plaza and good restaurants, bars, and clubs. The place is beautiful and try have an amazing bar with great happy hour deals. Best place to say in Cusco for sure. Shout out to Dalton, Ki, and Julieta. Much love.


Great hostel, central location, included breakfast had fruit which was a bonus compared to many Peruvian breakfasts. Nil complaints!


Nice place to stay and has a good bar that makes great food. Price of rooms for a double is a bit steep for peru i reckon. but definately worth a stay


All good here. Had 2 rooms - first was a double which was towards the front of the hostel away from the bar - second was supposed to be a double but they messed up and gave us a twin, although very gracious about it. The second experience was not as good as the first as it was nearer the loud bar and was obviously not a double. Obviously we expected noise so it's a hostel but just noting as if you prefer quieter rooms request one towards the front. Great location.

Great hostel as people know But the wifi is super slow and does not cover all areas


Really nice hostel very close to everything in Cusco. We stayed in a private room and later a 4 people dorm and both rooms were super nice and clean. They have a travel agency which offers a lot of tours. Nice, chilled atmosphere at the bar. I've stayed at Milhouse Buenos Aires and the staff there were a lot friendlier and happy, where in Cusco they could seem kind of cold. But overall a good experience!


It's a great place for young people but my wife and I don't fit in that category any more. We did not appreciate the non-stop music 12 hours per day nor the lack of hot water. One might call it tepid at best. Also the WiFi was the worst of any place we have stayed in the last 3 weeks. The staff were cheerful and friendly which helped offset the negatives.


Location was really good. In center where everything was. Pretty clean. Only thing is I thought this was the party hostel. played loud music throughout the night but was pretty dead. not really alot of people.


Muy buen lugar, buen desayuno, bien ubicado. Limpio, con onda. Y el bar estaba arriba, así que los más tranquilos pueden descansar. Un acierto. Good place, good location, breakfast, clean. And with good vibe. The bar was at the rooftop, so if you want to sleep it is possible. An ace.


Good place to stay, big and quite quiet - great for sleeping and resting. At the same time you can party there too.


Overall good hostel, has a movie room, bar with affordable drinks good sized rooms which are clean. However, it is slightly expensive and the food at the bar is disgusting.


Nice hostel, good bar, great breakfast. Staff of the agency inside the Hostel should be more helpful in giving information about their own tours; after all they are a touristic agency.
