The hostel was absolutely disgusting. The bathroom smelled terrible and was dirty. Plus, it did not have any soap. Not only that, but the room smelled super gross too. You have to make your own bed once you get there which is pretty inconvenient if you get there late as you will probably wake people up if you have to...

I travelled to Milan in the end of February 2017 and stayed there for 5 nights. In a whole, the price is quite low and the place occured to be better than I had expected. Pluses: - Friendly, helpful personnel - Good breakfast - Quiet place - WiFi Minuses: - Only one power socket in a room (six-bed room) -...

I dont have many expectations for such an inexpensive price. There is a bed and the accomodation is close to transport. However, the hostel fails to meet basic requirements. It was unclean. The wifi advertised did not work. Toilet cubicles had no lights. The service at reception was consistently slow. My papers that i had left on my dorm bed...

we stayed 2 nights in this hostel and it is not clean at all specially the bathrooms. And there is no enough electric plugs in the rooms and sometimes it is very loud at night. Also wifi is often not working.

The location is good if you need to catch a bus, it is only one metro stop from Lampugnano Bus Station. It is quite outdated and the room smelled funny. Showers were cold. Positives: Breakfast was basic, orange juice was good! Staff were really helpful and friendly. Wifi seemed to work ok. It is close to a supermarket and a...

We stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, we were 2 couples in 2 separate rooms, with ensuite bathrooms. The hostel is clean, staff extremely professional and helpful, but for us, the shower in the bathroom "refused" to release hot water to enjoy a refreshing shower after having driven some 350km from south Tuscany earlier in the day. The claimed...

Me and my friends stayed 4 nights for seeing some concerts at Stadio San Siro,we paid almost 15 euros at night for a room with shared bathroom in the old part of the hostel. The beds weren't so clean, I found some hairs on the pillow, the showers were full of mosquitos... however we knew what we would have found...

Nice hostel for solo travelers. There was no WiFi in my room. Very clean and 10 minutes away from city center by metro. Cheap enough. You get what you are paying for. Maybe the room and the breakfast can be improved. Perfect place to stay if you are looking for a well located, clean and cheap hostel in Milan.

I'm surprised that people are giving this hostel a bad review because it's a nice place to stay. They're having some sort of renovations, I think, but the third floor and the room I stayed at looks clean and modern. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. There's a lift. A spacious common area (but it was empty most of the...
