Liked: Great location, great staff. Good place to meet other travellers. Great for young people looking to party and meet people, but also great for older people as the hostel does a good job of isolating the two atmospheres so its entirely up to you as the guest if you want to party or have a quite night in

Disliked: nothing - it was great.

Liked: It is indeed a well-known party hostel which does not necessarily mean you have to be wasted all the time but that those who seek it out are travellers who like to meet other travellers. The typical guest seemed to be 20-30 years old and happy to be there and although it seems to be popular with south american travellers you can be sure to find a large portion of gringos if your portunol is not well. The staff is so friendly it borders on the uncomfortable. Most notably though there was hardly any noise at night in the dorm I had which was right on top of the bar so unlike some other "party hostels" you do have a choice between boozing and calling it an early night.

Disliked: The unique system with only one key for every dorm does suck. If you are alone in the room and want to go for a quick shower you either have to leave the room unlocked, bring the key with you and leave fellow guests locked out, or leave it at the reception just to go get it again in 10 minutes. I see the advantages but it is a weird system. The bar could have some more options when it comes to drinks and meals but it was still good for a hostel bar so that gets an OK ranking. If you want to be extra picky it would be nice with those small code-controlled safe lockers in the rooms to add to the big solid lockers you lock with your own padlock but I am good with the lockers they had.

Liked: It's easy to have fun and get to know new people there, they have activities every night. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast has good options of fruits.

Disliked: They had no guide for the tours the week I were there, I had to look for other companies for the tours. The prices of some activities are very expensive, for instance the Boca Junior's match.

Liked: It's in a beautiful building and the dorms are spacious. The lockers are large and mesh-sided, which somehow seemed preferable to solid although I'm not sure why. Although the previous reviewer's 'school disco' comment really rings true, the free parties are packed and friendly, and the beer prices are not too bad. I got talking to plenty of people, but you'll enjoy them most if you're early twenties, single and straight. The hostel seems to be run efficiently. The reception staff speak good English.(This was a disadvantage for me because I wanted to practise Spanish but in general it is obviously a good thing.) One of the cleaners has Down's syndrome, which is very progressive for somewhere like Argentina. A free walking tour goes right from the hostel to a different neighbourhood every morning: I don't know whether they're organized by the hostel but it's convenient either way.

Disliked: The wi-fi is really poor: you can only access it on the ground floor and not at all in the dorm. This is especially a disadvantage if you want to go on line while the parties are on or most of all when they are cleaning up afterwards, when they don't allow you in the area at all. There is also a massive shortage of sockets: in the dorm the only ones are right by the door, and downstairs there are very few and in awkward positions, so charging devices is difficult. While I was watching something on screen a cleaner must have taken the two bags from right in front of me and thrown them away: I found one of them in the bin. They weren't valuable but were the original packaging for the computer and cable so were obviously the right size to store them in and protect them from damage. I told a receptionist but she wasn't really apologetic and couldn't offer a good alternative. In general, the hostel is a little clinical: you probably won't develop much rapport with the staff. The kitchen is very small and, more crucially, severely lacking in equipment.

Liked: It is in a beautiful building and the rooms are quite tucked away so you can get some sleep. It is right by a metro so pretty handy.

Disliked: I found that I had heard a lot of hype about Milhouse and that the parties were immense. I have to say that for me they felt like school discos with groups of cliques and queuing up for drinks. I met some really nice people here but we made more fun elsewhere.

Liked: The property offered great facilities and the building itself was beautiful! Also good security measures in place and reasonable prices. Also the free evenings activites organised each night were good to go to, and they offered plenty of options for excursions to see a lot of the city quickly (also a little costly as well).

Disliked: I found it difficult to adjust to socialising here (possibly because it has a reputation of being a part hostel and therefore attracted groups of people rather than inviduals). Also didn't build up much of a repor with the staff. Finally, there's a very obscure sign on the building identifying the hostel, so it's very easy to miss - a point of frustration when first trying to find the hostel!

Liked: The cleaniness, the breakfast, it's so easy to meet other travellers here. The bar areas are really cool of an evening, comfortable beds and lockers. No complaints.

Disliked: It's pretty loud but it's a party hostel so that's expected.

Liked: Because of the size of the hostel it`s a good place to meet other backpackers (but not local Argentinians). If you don´t mind paying more than you should then there`s a whole range of activities that you can organise without having to set foot outside.

Disliked: It`s a typical large impersonal party hostel with strict rules about everything, designed to make you spend as much money at the hostel as possible. Things such as going to watch a football match the hostel charges double what a profit making website like tickettek charges, whilst telling you that`s the cheapest price you`ll be able to get. Despite the size of the hostel there isn´t even a kitchen and if you want to cook for yourself you have to walk 10 minutes to the other Milhouse.

Liked: Really fun place, there's something happening every day and night. Surprisingly clean for a party hostel, beds are made everyday, bathrooms are nice, huge lockers to put all your stuff in. The staff are helpful and friendly. Overall, I'd definitely go back.

Disliked: It's a little far away from the nightlife. Buenos Aires is a big city though.

Liked: It has amazing character and if you're a solo traveller is a great place to meet people. Location is ideally located and right night to the Subway which can take you easily to the bus station. ALL staff were nice folk.

Disliked: It is a party hostel and if you wanted an early night...forget it. Especially if your room is located on the front opposite one of the local night clubs. Kitchen lacks a few essential utensils.

Liked: Great hostel for meeting other travellers and going out. Good facilities and friendly staff. Good pool table. We did one walking tour with them and it was very good.

Disliked: Don't go here if you want to do lots of tourist things, the hangovers prevent it. Breakfast was/poor but then barely anyone makes it to breakfast so I can empathise with why. Drinks are quite expensive. Kitchen is poorly equipped The music on nights out was not to my taste, mostly poppy trance stuff but everyone goes to the same places so it can be worth going

Disliked: Internet gave trouble constantly. No Internet in bedrooms. Only one socket for plugs in an 8 bed dorm (though not all dorms are like this). Some of the staff were unhelpful and the kitchen often closed at 12 noon even though they are supposed to serve food until 3pm
