I had heard a lot about milhouse being a really wild party hostel and was secretly dreading it. I like to go out and have fun, but not until four am every night of the week, especially when I'm in an exciting city that I want to explore. I was really pleasantly surprised. The first night I was on the... More

I left my Iphone charging in one of the common areas of the hostel and it was stolen. The staff did absolutely NOTHING to help me. They didn't even help me to find the Tourist Police Department. I was left on my on. I deicided to move to another hostel and they didn't refund me for the 2 more nights... More

Probably the most fun I've ever had in a hostel. The parties are great but I wouldn't stay here in you're expecting to sleep well. Stayed in a 8 bed dorm on the first floor and the wifi just reached the room for me but it works well down stairs. The hostel offers some really cool tours, especially enjoyed the... More

You get what you expect from a behemoth like Milhouse; lots of people, a huge range of organised activities (trips to football matches, tours of the city), and a well-stocked bar, but our room was directly above a club, so you shouldn't expect to get much sleep before 4am. Facilities are fine - showers were decent, although the wifi wasn't... More

Located in down town Buenos Aires, it is one big social backpackers. The metro and bus stops are nearby as well as few restaurants, grocery stores and downtown spots. It is part of the hostel chain and very famous for being a party hostel. It's a multi storey building with a lift which is closed most of the time, a... More

A nice hostel for partying, just be careful not to fall into the Milhouse trap! Our first morning we slept in after partying, woke up at 1 pm and everyone in our 8 person dorm was still sleeping. The hostel has a lot of activities you can book and it's very well located. Staff is helpful, wifi not great. Room... More

I stayed in Milhouse a few years ago (in a shared room), and decided to return for a Private room this time, with my husband. This is a lovely, fun and well-located hostel, walk distance from everything in Buenos Aires. The place has tons of activities daily - the reason we chose it - and parties every night. Lots of...

We loved our free tango lesson at the hostel and their other events are fun too. Our room was clean and the breakfast was above average compared to other accommodation we stayed in! It is mentioned that the kitchen is small and it also has no oven so don't buy a frozen pizza and expect to cook it! We were... More

I was very skeptic when I read the reviews, it turns out they were true. This hostel is great! I had an amazing time there, the parties were awesome as well as the front desk people.It is very central, close to everything. They also organize guided tours which is fun. All in all, my stay in Buenos Aires wouldn't be... More
