“Almost perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

It's really good. There are many parties, many beautiful people from all the world. There is only a problem, it is not allow argentines inside. But the room is perfect. The recepcion is cool. Someday I'll coming back with my friends.

If you travel alone and look for something central where to find some friends and company this is the right hostel. Great social room downstair where to chat and meet people from all over the world. The guys at the reception are really helpful, they also organize some interesting tour.
If you are lookng the the funniest hostel in Buenos Aires this is the right one!

The hotel is located in a very good place, near from touristic spots and metro!
The staff was very nice, price is fair and the rooms are very clean.
The best thing though is the pub downstair.. Met lots os people from all over the world, and the prices of booze is just fair (like in pubs).

Would not recomend their services asking for a cab to the airport, since their price was almost twice of what I paid calling one by myself.

The Milhouse is a big hostel, so perfect for meeting people and partying. The Milhouse is actually two separate hostels: Milhouse Hipo and Milhouse Avenue - they are about a 5 min walk from each other. They alternate hosting a party each night, and each night the common areas are filled with travellers drinking from 10pm until 2am, at which point the crowd moves on to that night's recommended club.

They both run good day-time trips to La Boca etc, and the staff are very helpful when it comes to booking onward travel, or simply getting a restaurant recommendation (make sure you eat at La Cabrera - arrive at 6.50pm on the dot for 40% off the bill - best steak you'll ever eat).

This place isn't a great stay if your after somewhere quiet and relaxing, or if you're after a good breakfast, but it's second to none if you're after a laugh.

Damn!!! It's incredible how better and better this place becomes... I have to give it up for the cleaners, the managers, the old and new door guys and especially for the new receptionists. Franco was the highlight at this time. Pablo Acha and Poli, no words can't express how much I like you both... you made me feel home once again. The grils in reception, all of you.... incredible treatment and organization.... Laura, keeps managing it incredibly well........... Bar Staff, you guys ROCK. And FEFOOOOOO, many thanks to you for having me so welcome. A PLACE TO STAY for sure.

Great atmosphere to meet new people and have fun with your friends! The parties are very fun!!!! The staff is very friendly as well! The locations is good. Its a party hostel so don´t go if you don´t have a open mind for fun times and just want a place to sleep.

I usually avoid staying in hostels but was talked into booking this one. My expectations were really poor, I was dreading staying here, especially after reading some of the negative reviews. However I have never been so surprised. The hotel is located in a great location, really close to Florida st and 9 de julio. The staff are amazing, they all speak English and are really helpful. There are tons of activities for you to do and the staff are happy to help you with information. We stayed two nights in a triple share room, it wasnt the ritz and the beds werent the comfiest but the bathroom and linen were clean and our rooms were cleaned in the morning. The only downsides were the sink leaked a little bit and the beds were fairly old. It is a party hostel but we didn't party and it was fine, people do make noise early in the morning, but its not too bad when you think about the sirens in London and other noisy areas. Breakfast was included, pretty basic, just cornflakes, toast and juice tea and coffee. The wifi was free and there were also computers available for free use. No t.v. in the room, but we weren't bothered. After our stay here we moved to another Buenos Aires hotel as part of a tour that was supposed to be 4 stars and I found myself wanting to return to Milhouse as it was a much better place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the reception are more likely to be able to access the free wifi that is available i...
