What you'd expect from a giant hostel. Lots of services: computers, travel agent, massive bar, big parties. However in a hostel this size you don't get any personal touches or tips on how to experience the real buenos aires. I enjoyed my stay, just depends what you're looking for. If you want to enjoy hanging out and partying with other backpackers you'll love it, if you're looking for a cultural experience go elsewhere (or do what I did and party for a few days then move to another hostel)
Had a great stay here, could easily have stayed longer. This is a party hostel. There are 5 floors and they're frequently full up! Always something to do in the evening and they can suggest/arrange day time activities for you too. Very clean and there are baths! Can definitely recommend. Only downsides being you have to get a taxi to clubs, and the breakfast/food is pretty average.
Classic party hostel, absolutely massive and social area/bar constantly heaving. Not actually loud at all in the rooms if you do want to sleep early. Beds a little poor (narrow with no top bunk railing) and the constant encouragement to socialise with other travellers may hinder your opportunities to meet locals (other than most of the very friendly staff) but they offer VERY cheap tours most days and do encourage you to discover the city. Mostly 18-21s but fun nonetheless for 2-3 nights!
Awesome hostel, love the architecture of the place and the surrounding streets. Staff were excellent at all times. The fact this hostel also serves food is excellent, a hangover godsend! A great place to meet people and party the nights away to your hearts desire. There are electric sockets in the rooms just well hidden but would be nicer if each bed had it's own? Also the bag cages are a bit noisy and a reminiscent of a pet shop.. maybe phase them out. Thanks for a great stay.
The staff in Milhouse are really helpful and friendly.
Seriously couldn't say a bad word about Milhouse except be prepared be hungover all the time. Luckily the staff are so friendly, the food so good ans the atmosphere so chilled, your hang pain gets mildly eased. Really hung writing this tight now. Love you milhouse!
A fun and lively hostel. Helpful, friendly staff. Rooms far enough from the bar that you don't HAVE to party every night. Good tour options, activities, etc. The tango show is great. Good facilities. Hot showers, good wifi (downstairs only, but the hotel next door has free wifi you can access from some rooms upstairs!). Great location - walking distance to most places, and by a subway station too. My first and last stop of 6 months travelling South America... Seemed like closure!
Great hostel for meeting people! Loved the city tour! Highly recommend.
Highly recommend staying at Milhouse I had such an awesome time, the staff was super friendly and the facilities were very clean. The atmosphere was comfortable and so fun they had parties and got everyone involved. They had activities planned for every day that I highly suggest doing. Food was good as well!!
Awesome party hostel, highly recommended, you won't get much sleep if you soak up the atmosphere and events but the rooms are quiet and decent. Great staff, good prices. The elephant went crazy. Overall a fantastic hostel.x
I had a great time at Milhouse, there really is barely a dull moment here at the hostel. It is true, large, party hostel, plenty of drinking, socialising and all that sort of good stuff to be at this hostel. The hostel really makes it very easy for you party and go all out every single night because of the size and the way it is set up. You will always have people to go out with and places to go. Definately worth a visit if you love to party!!! Crowd is all gringo...but still a great time.
Wifi is only available in the bar area which is noisy at all times so makes skyping etc very difficult. Would be good if it was available in the downstairs lounge. Lots of events organised so never gets boring
One of the best hostels of all time! Nah, seriously, it's a pretty decent hostel. Excellent staff who can help with any query. Location spot on. And the party's and people are awesome. Only slight negative is breakfast could be better...but in fairness I only managed to get up for it once or twice.
Good location, great parties, but the room was dirty and I had bed bugs. The bunks are soo high that I had to think 3 times before deciding to if was worth the trouble to use the bathroom. The staff at night was really amazing with us and they helped a lot. By the time we check out we missed better information about the bus to go to the airport. We know was revolution day, but I think the staff couldve been more helpful by helping us find out if the bus was really working (which wasnt, btw)
One of the best hostels I've stayed in South America. However, if you are not keen for a party hostel then this is definitely NOT for you. Milhouse is known for being one of the biggest if not the biggest party hostel in BA. Great atmosphere where they throw parties every night. You definitely meet heaps of people! Security, staff and location are incredible, as well as the rooms are really clean! Cleaners come every morning and make your bed and clean the bathroom so it's always clean!
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I spent my first night in Argentina here, and after having 600 pesos stolen before even arriving at the hostel, the staff and the atmosphere helped calm me down and recharge for the months ahead. Great hostel!

Good location, near metro station. Decent breakfast with cereal, toast and fruits. Organized daily activities, and an onsite travel agent makes booking for tours, travels, etc. much easier. Can get quite noisy at night with parties going on in the main lobby area.
This place was awesome! We started our South America trip here and it was amazing. Staff were awesome, people there we friendly and always willing to talk and have a good time! Just don't stay here if you don't like to party :)
There are now two Milhouse hostels, make sure you are looking for the right one. They are hard to spot as they do not have overhead horizontal signage on the street but look out for the signage on the doorways and the security camera is also a give away,
