“My first hostel experience, a good one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2011

I was very suprised of this hostel experience in Buenos Aires.
The place is perfect for a cheap, but clean and central stay in Buenos Aires. The hostel located in a great place, but in addition, has nice facilities within, including intenet area, snooker, bar area, smoking place, and elevators for upper floor rooms. The private room I took was clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend the place.

Room Tip: Stayed at private double room but I understood the dorms are also fine.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

Stayed with a group of friends for 4 nights at the beginning of September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We booked 4 private rooms, and had no hassle when checking in. Staff were friendly, rooms quite large and clean. The bed wasn't hugely comfortable, but it felt like really good value overall. We signed up for most of the activities on offer, the La Boca tour (would probably enjoy more if you're a big fan of football). The 'Graffitimundo' tour (which was my favourite) and went to a tango show. The tango show lesson was amazing, but the food was average and even though it's billed as a 'free' wine bar, it really wasn't. Don't let reception talk you into going to the tango show for dinner over La Cabrera - lovely and juicy Argentinian steaks. The free tango lessons at the hostel were fun though, and a great way to meet people. Definitely lots to do at this hostel!

Crazy good location, good facilities, good staff (specially ANA), and fun people all the time!
I stayed there in a dorm and a private room in different visits to Buenos Aires, I have to say I saw more Brazilians than I have seen before !! (I´m not complaining, the girls were beautiful, but I never expected to see so many people from Brazil in Argentina).
Buenos Aires is awesome!!!! I could not believe it! It has a special atmosphere that makes your walks around the city unforgettable.
If you´re a futbol fan, you should definitely come! Boca Juniors, River Plate, Huracan, and many more futbol teams have their stadiums in the city or near by.
The street markets of San Telmo, and Recoletta are places you should not miss. Also, take a guided tour through the Recoletta cemetery, without a guide, you´ll miss tons of good tales.
Buenos Aires, is a city you should enjoy at its maximum !!!

Fun, friendly staff. Great bar - always busy. This hostel is massive. Private rooms are really nice. Clean and relatively comfy beds. Food is average. Internet fast but definitely needs more computers since there are 4 for the entire massive hostel! Kitchen could do with a few more general utensils. Bathrooms clean. if your not into partying don't stay here! Quite expensive and full of English people but nice. Be sure to book in advance even off-season.

Where to begin......this hostel was simply amazing! We arrived and from the front...were a little scared that it would be another dump of a hostel in S.America...but soon as the doors opened...it was amazing....nice posh modern feel with smiling faces waiting 4 us in reception.

The guy behind reception (forgot his name)...but he has dreadlocks and fair skin...was VERY helpful and made us feel very welcome. they were very accomodating..changing out reservation from a double bed to a twin room.

Now for the facilities, they had good internet, good food, gr8 b'fast (cereal...bread, jam, butter, tea, fruit)..sounds simple..but taste much better than b'fast anywhere else.

But the main part of the hostel is its social aspect....everyone in town knows it. There is always a party going in either in the Avenue..or the other Millhouse. Meeting ppl is so easy and having a gr8 time is always going to happen here.

The hostel do greeat tours of BOCA stadium and neighbourhood..this lovley nice lady took the tour..so friendly and made us all feel welcolm.

They do football games, tando shows (A MUST DO) and various other tours.

Best city in S.America for me....all thanks to The Millhouse Avenue...love it!
