Reviewed December 13, 2012

The Chillhouse was one of the best, if not the best place I have been to during the last two months (I really went to a lot of hostels...)! Not only, that the team was friendly and the rooms really beautifull- I also recieved a lot of help from all the people working there. I especially have to mention Antoine, one of the owners of the Hostel. During a big thunderstorm which fludded all Buenos Aires he helped me find a Taxi which nearly took 1 hour of time! Thanks for that- I got my bus ;)!
Looking forward to go back if in BS AS again!

A wonderful stay at a great hostel. Could not speak more highly of the staff who provided great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. A small and welcoming environment! A great roof top terrace also.

I loved the ChillHouse, the owners and employees were all very friendly and answered our endless questions about the area/nightlife/travel etc. I would definitely recommend this place its in a great spot to catch a bus/subway or just to walk around town during the day.

We had a room near the common room which we thought was going to be a problem but it was really quiet and relaxed, my only disappointment is that it was rainy when we were there so we didn't get to take advantage of that terrace!

This is a beautiful colonial style hostel with kind and helpful personel, and a very kind owner! We stayed in a double room, which was spacious and tidy. The bathroom was comfortable and during breakfast you can make your own orange juice. Highly recommended!

The owners of ChillHouse couldn't be nicer; they were so helpful before and during our stay. That said, it is in quite a random location pretty far from most of the sites in Burnos Aires, although only about 5 - 6 blocks from the Metro which made it easy to get around. There's a big supermarket right near the train, which is convenient if you want to pick up any groceries. The room we stayed in was right off the entrance, and a lot of sounds and smells (esp cigarette smoke) coming in at night.

The price was right and the stay overall was fine, but just have the right expectations coming in to your visit.

Thank you for your comment!

I just precise that we are located exactly 2 blocks from the line B of the subway (5 minutes to reach the center of the city), and 7 blocks for the line D /Recoleta...and 10 Blocks walking to Palermo...so in the middle of all you should see in Buenos Aires!

The room you booked was the 4 people private room with private bath, as you said, the price is fine (almost the same as a shared room), because we know that the location of this room is on our intern patio, and people can only smoke in the open space (intern patio, rooftop terrace)...Maybe you were unlucky this day that people smoked close by your room...It won't happen anymore!

Thanks again for your comment! We never stop learning thanks to you!

The location of the hostel is good (the subway, shopping mall and a big supermarket are all within walking distance). The owners are very helpful and the common rooms are very nice: during our stay one of the staff-members gave a free guitar-concert. Most guests are young backpackers. A simple breakfast is included.
