“Lively, Entertaining, Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Milhouse Avenue is the bigger of the two Milhouse Hostels, depending on what room you get could make or break your stay. We stayed there for 3 nights, the first night was in a room with a ceiling fan and no air conditioning, the temperature in the room reached about 38 degrees and was unbearable.
The next night we moved to a room with air conditioning and the sleep was much better. The rooms that we had had ensuite and were clean.
Location of the hostel is not far from the other one and it is 2 blocks away from Avenida 9 de Julio, the main/widest road.
The hostel was always busy, always something going on at night, and if there wasn't then there was something going on at Milhouse Hipo.
There were organised trips to La Boca, Palermo and other districts in and around BA. Plenty of trips to clubs after the party at the hostel had finished.
Worth the money and I would say would be great if you were a solo traveller. Staff spoke good English and were very helpful. The hostel also has a travel desk for booking travel to other destinations on your trip.
Breakfast in the morning is pretty continental, but all you need to start the day ahead.

Room Tip: Request a room that has a window on to the street and a room with air conditioning. If you can avoi...

Good clean rooms with ensuite was very good value for money, especially when they had a promotion going. Location was good as well with the subway close by with easy access to the main attractions. Bar was decent, I thought it was better than milhouse hippo which is just down the road. Staff were very friendly and night clubs recommended were always pretty good as well. Definitely recommend the tango show, that was a great night and enjoyed our time at milhouse.

Great place to stay, friendly atmosphere. Loads going on. Really nice rooms, good food available. Would highly recommend. Just don't expect to get much sleep! Slightly more expensive than other hostels but worth that little bit extra.

This is the ideal hostel perfect for solo travellers and anyone else who enjoys a party and loves to meet people from all over the world. The rooms are regularly cleaned and your bed is also made on a daily basis. The breakfast supplied every day is sufficient with breads, jam, fruit, cereal, juice, water, tea coffee.

The staff are terrific and speak very good english and are always there to help you with recommendations and advice about the city. There are parties every night in the hostel so itś a fantastic way of making new friends and enjoying yourself.

Milhouse Avenue is a great hostel. The rooms are well priced, cleaned everyday and have fans. They have activities available for you every single day ranging from free tours to bike tours tango lessons and more and all you do is sign up. They take you to great clubs - you feel safe there and all the staff are so helpful and cool. A great place to party non-stop introduce yourself to Buenos Aires.

Stay away from this Hostel!

I would like to warn against this hostel, as they have unrightfully charged my credit card for a trip, that they arranged. They charged me for 3 persons and I booked for 2. The amount is around 100US$. Apparently they will not stand up to their mistake and take responsibility to pay me my money back, as they ignore all attempts I have made to get in contact with them!

Therefore, they will not get a recommendation from us, and we would stay some where else next time in Buenos Aires.

Please let me assure to you once again that you were charged the correct sum. I´m really sorry if your bill was not clear to you.
If we charged our customers (very valued customers!) more than due, we wouldn´t have a business running for over 15 years now, with 87% of our customers very happy with their experience here, would we? Our customers are not silly.
We have tried to contact you several times, with no success. Please feel free to contact us to info@milhousehostel.com so that we can give you further details about your payment.

I was expecting a lot from this hostel. Little did I know I was about to enter something that looked like a hospital or even better... A retirement home. Things I dreaded: A max 150 peso tab, unmanned bar, weak service at the reception, bad smokers area, 65 peso BBQ special (single portion), a surcharge on the service from the travelling agency, expensive rooms,... I can't wait to get out of here! Positive: pretty clean, that's all.

Hi!

I´m sorry you were disappointed. Probably you expected a smaller, quieter hostel? The things you mention in your review are the things our guests normally appreciate a lot: a tab card, a great value barbecue, a travel agency (which like every travel agency does charge a small booking fee), a smoking area, and a very clean place, like you said. I´m sorry you found the service at Reception defficent, I will definetely check with our professional staff what happened during your check in. I hope you still had a great time in Buenos Aires!
Kind Regards,
Melina
