We moved to Milhouse from an awful hostel and were so so happy! It is so professionally run I couldn't believe it. On arrival we were greeted by a series of friendly and enthusiastic workers who checked us in and gave us loads of information about both the hostel and BA before showing us to our room. My friends and I had a 4 bed dorm to ourselves and it was so clean (including the towels and linen) with a fan and heater as well as a lockable cupboard and electronic safe. Only complaint was slightly poor shower pressure but it wasn't a problem.
The downstairs bar and TV area is awesome. So easy to meet other travellers, especially through the parties they organise every night with Milhouse Avenue and all the activities on offer. You can get a bar card and pay it off like a tab at the end of your stay which is great and breakfast was good too - you can even pay a little but extra for full English!!
The walking tours are cheaper than tipping tours and cover your public transport there and back. We had a fun free tango lesson too and there was live music some nights. They give you recommendations and discount for clubs every night too. Great fun!
There is 24 hour security and a 24 hour reception and travel desk where for only 5usd more they will book flights, accommodation and buses for you. The wifi doesn't reach all rooms but is very reliable in the common areas and they have computers too.
We met some awesome people and had a great 5 days with Milhouse - I can't recommend it enough and will definitely be staying with them again either in BA or in other cities during my trip!
