“Be chilled, not in the mill”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Such a nice little hostel with really nice owners. Barbeque on the roof top, nice rooms and clean bathrooms. The breakfast is not amazing but it's something...

The house is a really nice old building but it's not in the most interesting part of town. Kind of in the middle between. But hey, it's so cheap with taxis in BA so not really a problem. And the tube is clos which is super cheap.

Go for it!

Discovering this dreamland house in the heart of Buenos Aires made us feel exceptionally luckily welcomed in this crazy urban jungle! The Antoine and Kato team made the place just unique welcoming their guests as VIPs, playing the best music and offering ping-pong games on the terrace or tasty asados on summer days !
A fantastic melting pot of international backpackers from around the world share their travelling tips always full of energy and liveliness to discover the day and night life of the city carefully recommended by Antoine and Kato. A dazzling atmosphere where everyone gets together!
Feeling blue and grumpy once leaving the Chill House after two incredible weeks made us realise how much we loved it!

Stayed here twice over the month once for 5 days and then for 4 days. Its in a pretty good location and the public transport is BA is good so no problems getting around. The staff/owners are supernice, friendly and helpful and really knowledgeable about the city. They have a nice lounge and free internet and a pretty cool roof terrace which would be nice in the summer, got up there only once for a game of ping pong as we didnt have the greatest of weather but a big plus when the sun is shining. Rooms were clean and spacious, high ceilings and some cool artwork, its not a real party hostel but you may need some earplugs if you are a light sleeper as the noise can carry a bit from the central open courtyard. The only negative for us was the breakfast, some oranges to squeeze and bread and jam, coffee etc...probably could be better or make it optional perhaps? Overall a great place to stay though and would def recommend it.

We landed late, to the cold of Argentina and arrived at night to ChillHouse. Stayed there 4 days more than planned - very cozy place, with ultra friendly and helpfull administration. Eat orderings, BBQ at the roof, good company, in short as stated at one review here - 1st choice at Buenos Aires. Me and Nataly on our budget-honey-moon to South America could not have better start!
Best!

This is undoubtedly my favorite hostel ever. It is unlike the mainstream mass-market "McDonalds"-like places. Chillhouse is relaxed and oh so cool place to be. The staff are so lovely, and feel like friends and family. The weekly BBQ is delicious, and i returned just for that even when I was staying with local friends.Neil DEFINITELY stay at Chillhouse next time I'm back in BA.

This place is beautiful and super friendly, thanks again Kato and Antoine for the great atmosphere, recommendations and help! Good restaurants, nightlife and City centre can easily be reached from the hostel, bus- and metro stations at hand. As our trip was primarily for business, it was also good to have some quiet space for work and reading, which the hostel provides as well! We hope to come back sooner than later!!

The chill house has the perfect mix of like minded guests, great staff, fantastic atmosphere and living spaces mixed in with AMAZING music.
Rooms are supurb, the hosts (Kato & Antonie) are guinely lovely guys with their ear to the ground too for events and happenings in the city.
It's very easy going but also very clean, sociable and attracts a like-mind and considerate clientele. It made my stay in B.A because I looked forward to returning each day after sightseeing.

Can't recommend it enough! It's a must if you want to really enjoy B.A.
