One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Helped mainly by the staff who are all lovely. Not a bad word to say about any of them. I was there in total nearly a month and had the best time. The staff help you with any problems. The in house travel agent is a fantastic idea and parties every... More

Firstly the best thing about Milhouse Hipo is easily the staff, the most friendly kind people I've met on my travels, who answered the endless amount of questions I had for them. Sabrina & Lara you're amazing! Perfect balance by throwing lively parties at Hipo or Avenue then ending up at the biggest clubs in BA with all the interesting... More

Milhouse Hipo has a party at their location every other day, and they are pretty fun after midnight. It is loud downstairs and they play some pretty bad music sometimes, but the upstairs is quiet and very clean. The bathooms and rooms in general were very clean as well. Great staff, fun walking tours, a 60 peso cab ride away... More

Buenos Aires was one of the best trips I've ever done. And a good amount of the fun came from Milhouse. I don't have words to explain how I lived it up there. They have good parties all over the week. Staff is the friendliest ever. Guests are from all over the world and everybody so nice! This is an... More

I've stayed in Milhouse Hipo for about a week, and it was a great experience. Fun local parties, great location and a really nice breakfast. The staff is awesome; there is an enormous number of bathrooms, and all of them are pretty clean; free wifi and three computers for desktop interned based access (offtopic: all the three of them running...

Great nightlife. Party in hostel until 2 am and then onto nightclub. Not a hostel to stay in if you want to sleep! Great location. Breakfast has a good selection and lunch menu is very good. Fast laundry service in hostel. Rooms cleaned daily.

I stayed there with my friend for one week. It's a nice, clean hostel with friendly, helpfully staff. The breakfast was good! (Muesli, bread, cake, jam, fresh fruits and orangejuice) Before you're going out you can have cheap Cocktails (which are very sweet and with cheap alcohol; so we didn't like the taste but they did their work) ;) in...

great to meet other travellers and really friendly staff. Only thing is that it is too big and its hard to get out of the tourist bubble. Can be a bit loud at night time and alot of drunk people. but ok if you want to party.

Visited this hostel during May and like most people who stay ended up extending. They party hard here so expect to have a good time and to be taken care of. Very low shower pressure and no wifi in the rooms. I will come back again

Very awesome no frills, budget experience for all the cheapskates out there! I stayed in a room with two bunk beds and a private bathroom. There's a nice balcony and patio, which some hostels don't even have. In the lobby, there's a computer with free Internet. Also, there's a nice outdoor sitting area out front, where I sat with some... More
