“Very good for young-ish crowds, non-spanish speaking travelers”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The crowd's around 20-24 y/o.
It's a party hostel, though the parties tend to end not too late (around 2:30AM), every other day. The hostel arranges cheap tickets to clubs and discos, so people either sleep or leave after that hour.
I'm chilean, so I speak spanish, and we were probably the only ones in the whole hostel, other than the staff, which sort of left as like the odd group... So keep that in mind!
If you've been to Buenos Aires before, or can communicate well enough in spanish as to take cabs and the subte (subway) confidently, I would advise you to stay in Palermo. It's a bit further from all the usual hotspots, but the cab fares, subway and bus rides are so cheap it makes much more sense. Palermo is way trendier and closer to bars, clubs.

Room Tip: As with any hostel, choose the rooms higher up: higher=further from street, parties.

I liked the cleaness of the room and the gently staff! Great location too! The parties are cool!
At the couple's room, the noise from the big air condicioning machine may bore you a little late night .Also, there was some guys talking loud at the hall late in the night.

Absolutely loved it. Staff very friendly and very helpful. Great location and night life is out of this world. Were definitely returning in the near future. Really can't think of many bad things about this place. Bathroom flooded a bit but didn't really matter at all.

Myself & my partner stayed at Millhouse Avenue Hostel for 3 nights & wow, what a full on 3 nights they were! If you like to party this is definitely the hostel for you! We stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm which was clean and had its on bathroom. The staff at Millhouse were fabulous, very helpful & knowledgable. You also have access to the party's at Millhouse Hipo but I would recommended staying at Avenue.

Free breakfast included in the stay if you manage to make it in time!

I just have nothing to complain about. Helpful staff, nice rooms, a fantastic place to meet people from all around the world, daily - and nightly - activities, very good location as well. If you enjoy meeting new people and partying, this is the place!

Overall a good hostel, lively and well orginised. Staff are friendly and helpfull. Place was clean and common areas were good.

Walking tours orginised were a bit disappointing though as guide didn't say much and brought groups to overpriced restaurants. I'd avoid in favour of the cycleing tours.

I had a lovely 3 week stay at Milhouse Avenue!
I started my 5 month backpacktrip through South-America over here.
I booked this at Kilroy, because I wanted to have Spanish lessons. I was one of the only people who had Spanish lessons and especially for 3 weeks long, but it was a good start of my journey. The staff of Milhouse was so sweet for me, I really felt at home. You can ask them anything and they take good care of you. In the mornings from Monday to Friday I had 4 hours of Spanish lessons from Melina! She is great! I did not knew a word of Spanish and I was scared to start talking, but she really helped me with it and I had a good basic knowledge to go further into South-America, which I recommend everyone. In the afternoons I enjoyed the city of Buenos Aires or the activities from the hostel, everyday they have activities (for example a biking tour or walking tour, I did most of them and I really enjoyed it. Further the staff can also help you book excursions or things for your next stay) and in the evening you can go partying if you want. The party is in Milhouse Avenue or Milhouse Hippo. For me it was great to stay in Avenue, here it was a bit more relax and more space and Hippo was more the party place after that you could go to one of the clubs with everyone else who wanted to go (or you could go to bed). Milhouse is a great place to meet people and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are cleaned every day and the building is taking good care off. There are safety lockers and always someone at the door.
I could combine my studies with getting to know Buenos Aires, meeting people and when I wanted partying.

Room Tip: If you are not such a party animal ask for a more quiet room. It is really a party hostel for youn...
