I stayed in this hostel in july. It has not air conditioning and the fan in the room was broken. It was unbearably hot. Because it was so hot we had to have the window open, there are no screens so there were tons of mosquitos inside. Most of the electrical outlets in the room didn't work. There seems to... More

There might not be a free breakfast or any privileges in other nightclubs. But you have your own bedroom which you can close with a key that only you and hostel owners have copies of. I even had a shower inside my room, a TV and a sink... That was the meaning of comfort and privacy! The Reception is not... More

I was there for two nights and the services are quite good even if prices are really too high with respect to the service they provide you. As strong points, it is to say that it is quite close (700 metres) to the Metro Station (Lambrate FS) and also to a taxi parking, so it is very easy to reach... More

Tucked into a private, alley street, Hotel Galla is a humble, quaint little-structured building with a diligent, accommodating staff. I walked in right off one of those wider, tree-lined streets in Milan, walked up a narrow, staircase -- a very homey interior (little kids' stickers on the wall, kawaii-font letters are on the second floor to tell you the WiFi...

The hostel located not far from metro station. I lived in a dormitory mixed room with 4 beds. An important advantage for me was single level bed. It is very seldom for hostels. Staff is very kindly and polite. It was some degree cold in the room (I was in the hostel in November). This hostel can be recommended for... More

It has all the facilities you can expect from a stay in a hostel! The staff was helpful. Moreover, he location towards the metro is convenient although it takes some time to the city centre. The bathroom facilities are shared.

I was a guest at this hostel with a friend for three nights. While there we suffered an uncountable number of bites from bed bugs. I have backpacked all over central and South America and have never seen bed bugs like this. This hostel was too uncomfortable for us to be able to sleep. The rooms were not secure as... More

We stayed in Milan for 6 days (its a great option if you want to see other northern cities, it takes 3 hours to get to Venice by train (the cheapest one, and correspondindly, not the fastest one)). The hostel is not bad, although for its price it could be better (high season is responsible for the price i guess).... More
