Milhouse is a great hostel, really sociable place so great for meeting new people. The staff are all really nice too and the activities organised through the hostel are definitely worth the money!
very good hostel. I personally liked a lot the parties and the location, close to most of the sightseens and metro
Had the best time here - can't fault the hostel, thank you 😊

Couldn't have asked for more. 24/7 security, 24/7 reception, it's own bar with a good selection of food. A good atmosphere and plenty of communal areas to chill, comfy beds, big rooms. Clean bathrooms, genuine staff, plenty of activities. 10/10.
That would be a great idea to provide the customers with free lockers or charge them a small price for those.

I planned on staying 2 nights in the Milhouse but ended up spending a week there. It's an excellent hostel for solo travellers. Dorms are bright and spacious with cages for your backpack. The showers were the nicest I encountered on my trip through South America - I felt like I had my own bathroom! The hostel organises activities and tours so it's extremely easy to meet people. The breakfast is also very good with cereal, cake and fruit offered as well as the traditional fare of bread and jam.
Stayed here for an initial 5 nights and ended up staying 7. Really nice big open spaces, plenty of room to chill out and nice pool table to enjoy. Really good breakfast and scrambled eggs 3 days a week which is a massive plus when travelling. Really secure with doorman on door 24-7. Good place to meet people and really big party atmosphere but if tired can go to bed without being disturbed. Hostel bar was very expensive and happy hour only on night of party-3 of 7 nights!!Would stay here again.
Rating Milhouse Avenue is hard... This hostel is an awesome place to party, in the heart of Buenos Aires, with excellent prices and a good vibe. However, the place is a mess. The matresses are dirty, the toilets are disgusting, the service is not so good. There's only one key per room, so I found myself locked out of my own room many times, even having to get down to the lobby wearing only a towel to search for the person who had the key. If you don't care about comfort, I recommend!
Really helpful staff who gave us so much information! The walking tour with Camilla was really good, a must do! Good atmosphere of you like to party! Large lockers for each bed, beds not the comfiest but not too bad! Overall definitely would recommend!
Hostel is exactly what it says in the description. Good for partying and lots on offer in regards to walking tours etc. Weird system having only one key for the room and having to leave it at the front desk but nothing more than slightly irritating
The hostel is great in general. I just have a complaint in terms of exchanging money. Sadly, I had a problem with my credit card and I had to give them the money in dollars. But for exchange, they just offered me 9 pesos for each dollar (bellow even of official exchange rates) - that drove me really upset.
It's very expensive but it's a great place to stay to meet people. They have nice hostel activities which I really enjoyed even though again they are also expensive. Very clean and very comfortable!
I really liked the staff - for the most part, they were all Argentinian with great knowledge of the area, English capabilities, and generally really nice. The security was a complete joke and did not speak English. I was unimpressed when particular facilities were closed at a certain time (pool table? access to the internet?). It was a shame that some of the nights the hostel turns into a rave/club and parties until 2 am, and when you want to shoot a quiet game of pool at 11 pm you can't.
Had the best time at Milhouse and some incredible people. All the warnings are true though, it's a party hostel! Combine that with the Buenos Aires nightlife, and you'll find yourself with some serious hangovers and spending a few hours every now and then catching up on sleep! The only downer is that they jacked up the prices for happy hour when the hostel was full.
Crazy party hostel but with so much to do and see very knowledgable staff and bilingual
Had an incredible time here. Considering it is a huge party hostel everything is run so smoothly and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Excellent sound proofing means I couldn't hear any music in my room on nights I wanted to chill. They also alternate party nights with their sister hostel so downstairs turns into a nice chillout zone every other night. Great location, nice big lockers in rooms, clean and good variety at breakfast. FYI - Avenue is twice the size of sister hostel Hipo.
A party hostel for sure! Though drinks at the bar are pretty expensive. Great place to meet people and staff are really friendly.
Expected a lot more from this hostel. Towel I paid for smelt bad. Dorm beds were noisy when you move. Bar closes early some nights and doesn't offer happy hour and you're forced to go down the road to milhouse hipo if u want to drink.
