“Great party Hostel”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Great nightlife. Party in hostel until 2 am and then onto nightclub.

Not a hostel to stay in if you want to sleep!

Great location.

Breakfast has a good selection and lunch menu is very good.

Fast laundry service in hostel.

Rooms cleaned daily.

Stayed July 2014

I stayed there with my friend for one week. It's a nice, clean hostel with friendly, helpfully staff.
The breakfast was good! (Muesli, bread, cake, jam, fresh fruits and orangejuice)

Before you're going out you can have cheap Cocktails (which are very sweet and with cheap alcohol; so we didn't like the taste but they did their work) ;) in the hostelbar. And every evening the guests from the hostel are going to the same club. That was fun! :)

If you don't like party - don't go to this hostel! ;)

great to meet other travellers and really friendly staff. Only thing is that it is too big and its hard to get out of the tourist bubble. Can be a bit loud at night time and alot of drunk people. but ok if you want to party.

Visited this hostel during May and like most people who stay ended up extending. They party hard here so expect to have a good time and to be taken care of.
Very low shower pressure and no wifi in the rooms.
I will come back again

Very awesome no frills, budget experience for all the cheapskates out there! I stayed in a room with two bunk beds and a private bathroom. There's a nice balcony and patio, which some hostels don't even have. In the lobby, there's a computer with free Internet. Also, there's a nice outdoor sitting area out front, where I sat with some fellow travelers and had drinks. It was a good way to avoid the overpriced nightlife in the area. Around the corner on Piedras, there's a mini market where you can buy food and drinks, which you can keep in the shared fridge at Tropics.

Stayed at Milhouse Hipo for 3 nights and had a blasttt. I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm which was very basic but had natural lighting and was cleaned daily. They have great showers (nice water pressure with HOT water!) and the bathrooms were always clean and tidy. Doesn't feel like a party hostel at all from the rooms but in the common area there is a great bar set up and they have parties every second night (on the nights they dont it is at the other milhouse and milhouse hipo people are allowed to join the party over there) They also offer tourist information, daily affordable activities and the purchase of cheap entrance tickets to clubs. Oh and their included breakfast is great aswell.

Room Tip: Our friends had a private double room with their own bathroom which was much nicer than ours, if you...

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!
