“Best staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Everything about this hostel is top-notch. The environment and style of the building, the staff and the roof-terrace with tabletennis. Breakfast nothing much, although the coffee is good.
Almagro, the area where the hostel is situated, is very local and has a good vibe with nice cheap bars and parilla restaurants. The hostel although can't be described. The staff are great, and there is something about the architecture and decor that generates a nice social atmosphere without being "enforced sociability".

Me and my husband booked for two different periods.
The first one, which was on a shared room they messed up, put us in completely different rooms, although the reservation was for two people together. They couldn't fix, but one of the owners (Antoine) was so helpful and concerned that we ended up being ok with that.
The second one was perfect, rooms were cozy, the size, facilities and breakfast were ok, nothing remarkable, but just what we needed for a comfy stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 5 and 6, which were great, but right on the street. Buenos Aires traffic can be a...

I really enjoyed my stay at ChillHouse. The staff is great! They are so helpful and friendly. It felt very homey and comfortable. There is a beautiful roof-top terrace that is great when it is not too hot. The breakfast is very minimal though. I would definitely recommend this hostel. It was a great place to have to go to after a busy day or night in the city.

very friendly and helpful staff. Spotless clean. The included breakfast is nothing worth to mention - but then thats typical for BA. Good location to explore the surrouding areas by subte and bus. Unfortunately there are no more bikes to rent - all got stolen.

Room Tip: upstairs dorms and rooms are more quiet - try to get those

I booked this hostel via email for my first night in BA (dorm beds), and again for NYE (twin room). Antoine is a lovely guy and was so very helpful with the bookings. He even warned me they were having an NYE party on the roof, just in case I wasn't keen on the idea. However, my friend and I were very keen and had a fabulous time celebrating the new year with him and everyone else who went.
The dorms are spacious and high-ceilinged with ample locker space and sizes. The bathrooms/toilets are separate from the dorms, which I prefer, and are well looked after and maintained.
All the guys who work at ChillHouse are extremely helpful, guiding and advising and booking stuff. I really enjoyed my stay here.

This hostel was SO excellent I don't even know where to start. The hostel itself is a really cool building with a relaxed dining room and even more relaxed rooftop lounge area. It is a really comfortable place to be in, which has a lot to do with the staff. The team there is an amazing group to be around, as far as helping with questions, or just hanging out. I was lucky enough to go their NYE party. I highly recommend this hostel, it is by far the best I've ever stayed at.

Stayed at ChillHouse in December and was a fantastic stay. Everything from the rooms, the roof terrace and the staff were brilliant. Antoine especially was a lovely host, helping with arrangements, advice on what to do and general welcoming us to BA. Close to a huge useful supermarket, lots of restaurants and the subway. 20 minute walk to the fantastic bars and night life of Palermo Viejo which was a bonus, Definitely consider the place if you want a reasonably priced, but fun place to say in BA. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
