As I lay in the tranquility of the swinging hammock situated in the serene milhouse courtyard I think about my experience of being in this hostel and it will be one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The incense is burning and the sound of the huge water fountains make me feel more relaxed and content with life then I ever have. On arrival to the milhouse we were met with friendly staff and an easy straightforward check in to our room. We booked a 3 bed Dorm for myself and myfriend but you can book dorms to share with others. Our rooms were spacious and above anything I expected for a hostel. The beds were extremely comfortable and the huge duvets meant you slept like a baby. The hostel itself is huge with an amazing courtyard filled with hammocks and huge stone pillars and very tranquil. The breakfast is what you would expect cereal, fruit and bread and unlimted herbal teas which you can have anytime of the day. The bar has an adequate range on the menu and I would definitely recommend the sandwich and fries which you can buy at any time of the day . they truly are the best sandwiches I've ever tasted and only 13 soles which works out at about 3 English pound. The bar staff are on hand when you need them . Myself and a friend booked a 5 day trek to macchu picchu months before we arrived through Sta travel who then book through bamba tours who are located in the hotel which is a blessing in disguise as your pick up points and any info needed are on hand by friendly staff. You can book through the hotel to do many tours and treks at a fraction of the price of Sta but you are not guaranteed a place as the tours do book up easily. The great thing about milhouse is that you can chill in the surroundings or spend time in the bar which is a little more lively especially at night . I do recommended ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the music can keep you awake but I have no complaints about this as the hostel itself caters for all ages and a pair of earplugs are a god send for sleeping as well as on aeroplanes and if you decide to do any camping . The wifi is only available in the bar and reception area but the reception is another courtyard surrounded by hammocks and huge beanbags and very quiet if you would rather chill then be in the bar. Plug sockets are located everywhere as well as in the rooms so you never have to worry about being able to charge iPads , cameras etc. I would recommend this hostel for anyone wether you be someone looking for a place to reflect on life or somewhere for a good piss up and a way to meet new people the fact milhouse can cater for the two extremes is a success in itself. I would come back here again and again without hesitation and would like to thank the milhouse hostel for making my stay in cusco a memory that will last with me for a lifetime.
