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... More

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... More

I agree with much of what said before me... but at 35 Euro for private room in Milan that is actually the best that you can get. Finding the place - not so hard. Not far from bus #190 that circle the city. Than few minutes short walk. Look for signs.. Reception - the guy was definitely NOT friendly. You... More

Albergue de gran capacidad en Milan. Sitio agradable y modesto para una noche. Las habitaciones son caras para lo que ofrecen. Tipico ambiente de un albergue de gran ciudad pero algo apartado del centro Big hostelling in Milano, not bad for one night. Rooms are expensive considering their decoration or renovation. Typical feeling from a big city hostelling not close... More

This place is well located. It's only a short walk from the Lampugnano bus station. It is however, the worst hostel I've stayed at for a long time. The first night my my bed actually broke, and although I asked at the desk the next day, it was never fixed. I had to fix it on my own. I also... More

I'm being generous with 2 stars because our 2nd night was definitely better than our first. I will preface my review by acknowledging that I booked a triple room with private bathroom via hostelbookers.com. With whom you pay approximately a 12% deposit when you book. I was supposed to pay 70€ per night for 2 nights. Meaning hostelbookers.Com took a... More

I stayed there only for one night & was out all day. It is definitely far from the central Milan but metro station is at walk able distance.
