We report on the structure and performance of the HOU Reconstruction & Simulation (HOURS) software package developed in order to study in detail the response of very large volume ($km^3$-scale) Cherenkov neutrino detectors. HOURS comprises a realistic simulation package of the detector response, including an accurate description of all the relevant physical processes, as well as several analysis strategies for event reconstruction. We also present results concerning the performance of several detector configurations of a Very Large Volume Cherenkov Neutrino detector. Our results refer to the evaluation of the detector sensitivity in observing cosmic neutrino fluxes from point-like and diffuse neutrino sources.
