Liked: The best party hostel I've ever stayed!!

Disliked: Although the hostel has a nice structure staff was sometimes a bit cold. Not all of them,actually the majority was really helpful and friendly. It was just one or two people, probably the managers, that were not showing a very "out of the box" approach. Anyway, I highly recommend this hostel as the best to stay in BsAs!

Liked: The rooms are fairly decent, facilities are good and its an easy, sociable place to meet other people. There's a party most nights of the week (at one or the other millhouse hostels) so there's always something to do.

Disliked: The breakfast was a bit lacklustre - a bit of toast would be enoyable but that wasn't there. The beds were lacking in size, as were the pillows, and weren't always comfortable - though in BA you'll be happy to have somewhere to lay down.

Liked: Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Completely the wrong part of town for seeing the best of buenos aires as proved by the fact that the clubs they promote are all about 7km away in Palermo which is a much better area to stay in for an authentic BA experience. If you just want to have a good time then stay at Milhouse but you could basically be staying anywhere in the world. There is nothing authentic about it. They overcharge for their day trips - $50 to go to la boca for a walking tour and over $300 to go to a football match. I paid $40 by just going to the stadium and buying it myself. Also, the rooms on the road are extremely noisy as Avenida de Mayo is a main road. Milhouse is legendary amongst backpackers, I'm not sure why.

Liked: One of the best hostels i ever stayed. Surely the most friendly. Internet was very fast and the toilet was so clean one could lick it.

Disliked: The "one key per room" policy makes you check before going up or get down, could be better

Liked: If you want to party, that is the place, if you want to rest go somewhere else.

Disliked: You cannot use the ladder of the second bunker, so you have to jump on and out.

Liked: We met some great people at this hostel- we also met some idiots there, but I think its just the luck of the draw.When you were part of the party making the noise, it was enjoyable, otherwise you will probably need ear plugs to sleep (even in a private room)

Disliked: The football game was very overpricedAlso the noise from outside the rooms was very loud some nights (particuarly bad on the night of a party at the hostel) and in the mornings the cleaners would yell to each other across floors and so there was no way to sleep in after being kept up late by party noiseThe bar was overpriced and some of the bartenders were pretty rude
