Milhouse Hipo is a great hostel. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed with open arms by the great staff. They were always smiling and happy to help you with whatever you needed. With parties every night and great activities during the day, we were never bored. The building itself is beautiful and very well maintained. It is... More

We got a triple room at this hostel. It was very clean, good location, breakfast included. Its a very busy hostel which runs its own partys, bike tours etc. It would be a great way to meet people. We did the bike tour run by the hostel and it was great. It was good value

Biggest hostel I've ever been. It's a decent place, great place to meet people, but it lacks the coziness and quirckiness of other (in)famous hostels around the world. Perfect if you're on your own and wanna party

It was really annoying that the kitchen was meant to be open until 3, and it says this on a sign, even though every day they decide different times to stop serving food - sometimes it could be 12, sometimes 1 and sometimes there is no food. The internet comes and goes all the time. Some of the staff are... More

I stayed dozens of hostels everywhere but never seen an decent and honest place like there. Rooms/dorms are OK. Some comes with A/C and private bathroom. But this is an stressfree place there was a lot of space, a lot of bathroom and lots of thing you need which you can find. Simple but OK breakfast. Front desk was very... More

The staff at Milhouse Hipo spoke most languages between them and couldn't have been more helpful. The bigger Hostel Milhouse Avenue was only 5 minutes away on foot and had a representative there who could help with any or all of your onward travel needs. Even though it is a party hostel, we didn't hear any of that, but could... More

Milhouse offers an amazing amount of activities and excursions, which is excellent for the unorganised traveller such as me who just turns up in a city and hopes they will discover things to do. It is a party hostel, every night there is a party at one of the two milhouse hostels, starting at 11pm, with transport to a club... More

The hostel is in an amazing location right by the obelisk. There are lots of outings organised such as polo, walking tours, tango etc and it's cheaper than going direct. The hostel is very clean and good value for money which includes a generous breakfast (400 pesos for a private room a night). The 24 hour security at the door... More

First and foremost if you want to meet people this place pretty much guarantees you will genuinely encounter plenty of other backpackers. This doesn't mean that they will be the ideal type of person you'd like to socialise with however. Milhouse is a party hostel and as such it attracts the party type, (the fixed term holiday), the solo backpacker... More
