“Friendly staff & Party people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Really big hostel, great atmosphere in the evenings and the staff are great for organising nights out in the city! Pau Siciliano was a great help for us, really friendly and helpful!! If you can afford definitely get a private room, they are excellent!

Room Tip: Private rooms are great!!

Never trust a hostel that sells FAKE MONEY to guests!
I came from Brazil and changed all my money at the hostel. Some time later, I tryied to pay a taxi and I realized the 100 "pesos" the hostel had sold me wasnt original. (the taxi driver didn't change, me and 3 friends were watching)

The manager said (laughing) they could't do anything becouse i didn't see it at the time.

moreover,
very disgusting dirty dishes at the kitchen,
bed bugs,
people talking loud at the halls by 5am

Melina S, Manager at Milhouse Hostel Avenue, responded to this review, 30 January 2014
Dear guest,

We welcome criticism and reviews of our guests as we believe they help us improve more and more every time. However, this time we firmly do not accept your accusation that we gave you fake money nor that the manager in charge laughed at you when you complaint about it. We repeatedly tried to explain to you that it is, unfortunately, a very common practice by taxi drivers in Buenos Aires to very swiftly change a good bill for a bad bill and tell people that the bill "they gave him" is fake. Taxi drivers do this all the time. We would NEVER EVER give a guest of ours a fake bill. This is definetely not the way we run business and let alone our philosophy of how to treat customes. So once again, we firmly reject your accusation and assure you, as we explained to you already here, that we did not give you any fake money and that most likely the same taxi driver who told you it was fake changed it himself. You can ask plenty of people who came to Argentina and, unfortunately, they will confirm taxi drivers do this.
As for the other angry comments you make, you know, with your hand in your heart, that there were no bedbugs at all (you stayed in a very pretty private room in fact) and that you are only saying this because you are angry.
However, I´m sorry if you did find some dirty dishes in the kitchen. We try all our guests wash the dishes after they cook, but we know that not everyone does it We do have a housekeeper looking after the kitchen but it is possible that you saw them before her. Sorry about this.
Kind Regards,
Melina

Booked into the Milhouse on 31st Oct 2013 and stayed for 3 nights.
After travelling for 27 hours I didn't fancy staying in the dorms so I opted for private room with en suite, room 5 or 6 can't remember now was v spacious, clean and on the 5th floor far enough away from any bar noise.
The bar had functions on at least 5 nights a week so v lively.
Bar food good and cheap.

Everyone I spoke to before embarking on my trip to South America told us to stay in Milhouse hostel, and they were right to do so! It is simply one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in and has everything you could possibly need. Fantastic rooms, very clean, great food/drinks, amazing bar and of course it is definitely the place to go if you want to party! There are organised activities each day and a planned night out every day to some of the best bars/clubs in BA. The staff are fantastic and a lot of fun, and they provide a very easy-going relaxed atmosphere but then again are ready to party themselves pretty much every night (especially Pau and Melissa)!! You should not be put off by negative reviews of this place, they have inevitably been written by people who come to Milhouse expecting a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. This is not to say that Milhouse does not provide this, but it is predominantly a party hostel and people coming here expecting otherwise are very misinformed. We planned on staying in BA for 5 nights and ended up staying 9; with this being the only problem of this hostel, you will probably never leave! If you are going to BA, staying in Milhouse is a must! I would also advise booking ahead (especially for weekends and if in a big group) and the hostel filled up most nights!

Milhouse Avenue is the bigger of the two Milhouse Hostels, depending on what room you get could make or break your stay. We stayed there for 3 nights, the first night was in a room with a ceiling fan and no air conditioning, the temperature in the room reached about 38 degrees and was unbearable.
The next night we moved to a room with air conditioning and the sleep was much better. The rooms that we had had ensuite and were clean.
Location of the hostel is not far from the other one and it is 2 blocks away from Avenida 9 de Julio, the main/widest road.
The hostel was always busy, always something going on at night, and if there wasn't then there was something going on at Milhouse Hipo.
There were organised trips to La Boca, Palermo and other districts in and around BA. Plenty of trips to clubs after the party at the hostel had finished.
Worth the money and I would say would be great if you were a solo traveller. Staff spoke good English and were very helpful. The hostel also has a travel desk for booking travel to other destinations on your trip.
Breakfast in the morning is pretty continental, but all you need to start the day ahead.

Room Tip: Request a room that has a window on to the street and a room with air conditioning. If you can avoi...

Good clean rooms with ensuite was very good value for money, especially when they had a promotion going. Location was good as well with the subway close by with easy access to the main attractions. Bar was decent, I thought it was better than milhouse hippo which is just down the road. Staff were very friendly and night clubs recommended were always pretty good as well. Definitely recommend the tango show, that was a great night and enjoyed our time at milhouse.
