Travelled around Europe in various hostels. Paid £20 a night here which wasn't the cheapest we stayed in at all, but was by far the worst. Struggled to see in the rooms as they were so dark. Toilets the worst i'd seen, showers were ok if your used to cheap hostels. Breakfast was basic but handy if you were on...

Do NOT stay here, under any circumstances. The woman at reception is horrible and rude. The rooms are infested with Mosquitos. When the staff were notified they handed me an EMPTY bottle of repellent, not even something to get rid of the bugs. You can't open the window because of the Mosquitos. The rooms are so old and loud. Someone...

if you like to sleep during nights never go there.. was just terrible: people all night out there to socialize, to slam the doors continuously in the middle of the night (at 3 am!!) and to to do any mess possible.. one plug only in sleeping room means no people could charge their stuff timely. even worse in the common...

It's old and loud. At 9:30 they turn on music throughout the hallways to wake people up, even though there was a line of 5 people (one of the ladies was checking in a whole group) and two guys behind the counter, one of them said he was to busy to check people in. It took at least 45 minutes...

I shared a private double room with my friend. At 30 euros a night, I couldnt have asked for better. The room was good and the place was kept nice and clean. The staff was helpful. Breakfast was pretty good too! No major complaints... just that the lights in the room were a little dim. It is not located very...

I stayed at this hostel without properly doing my research - hopefully you won't make the same mistake! Located far out of the centre of Milan, the location is poor. The hostel itself is not nice-looking - it's large and drafty, with a feel closer to a prison than a hotel. The common room is 2 sofas, a couple microwave...

This place is average. You will have to catch a metro before reaching to this destination. We stayed for 2 nights, from 21st to 23rd of January. Some of the staff are good, especially the staff during the day. All of them are friendly and nice. Breakfast is good. The credits goes to the kitchen lady. She is a very...

Location in suburbs entrance down dark lane, very unpleasant on a dark wet night. No cafe/bar only expensive vending machines. No kitchen, so have to eat out. there is a good pizzeria on via albani about 500 metres away, and a supermarket a bit further. Bedrooms very small for such a large building only one socket for 8 people all...

So disappointed. Don't stay here. They literally kick you out between 10 AM to 12 PM to Clean, you're not allowed back into your room. Hated it. Showers were cold, staff was rude, there was no plug ins or lights to read in the room, no restaurant, wifi was bad, old and felt like staying in a prison. Will never...

Cannot stress enough - DO NOT STAY HERE!! Rooms are horrible, bathrooms were dirty and the whole hostel looks like an old prison or psych hospital. Staff werent helpful, in the middle of no where and the breakfast was terrible! We are not fussy people but this was awful, had nothing to offer beside a cheap price.
