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

Stayed at Milhouse Hipo for 3 nights and had a blasttt. I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm which was very basic but had natural lighting and was cleaned daily. They have great showers (nice water pressure with HOT water!) and the bathrooms were always clean and tidy. Doesn't feel like a party hostel at all from the rooms but... More

We moved to Milhouse from an awful hostel and were so so happy! It is so professionally run I couldn't believe it. On arrival we were greeted by a series of friendly and enthusiastic workers who checked us in and gave us loads of information about both the hostel and BA before showing us to our room. My friends and... More

This hostel is great for organised fun, nights out and day activities. Most of the staff are extremely helpful and it's a great place to meet other travellers. However, my only gripe with milhouse was the beds we were given, were in fact infested with bed bugs, leaving us covered in terrible bites... So just check yours beds and have... More
