Ostello Bello
Ranked #2 of 277 Speciality Lodging in Milan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2012

This hostel is in an excellent location- just off a main street in central Milan. Bars, restaurants and shops are all in an easily walk-able. Parking was a little tricky as most of the spaces near the hotel were occupied. If you are travelling on public transport it is about a 20 minute walk from the main station.
The staff immediately made us feel welcome, provided a free welcome drink, a tour of the hostel and gave us great city information. The staff advised the hostel was especially busy due to a live music event being held in the basement. The hostel had a strict policy regarding noise in the dorm rooms and during my stay all guests adhered to this. I had an excellent night’s sleep which isn’t always easy in shared accommodation.
The dorm we stayed in had 8 beds and an ensuite bathroom which was all kept scrupulously clean. I have stayed in hostels all over the world and this has to be in my top 5 for cleanliness, quality and location. The nightly rate also includes breakfast which was simple albeit sufficient. It included toast, spreads, cereals, yoghurt, pancakes, juices, tea and coffee.
I would thoroughly recommend this hostel- its very clean, social, excellent location and good value for money.

Pretty cool hostel in Milan that is also a popular hangout for Italian Hipsters....

Typical Hostel, 8 beds to a room, clean, nice terraces.

We had a good time as we took 6 of the 8 beds in the room, not sure I would have liked to be one of the other two.

Modern, clean and a great bar and friendly staff. Very easy to find- its just a few streets down from the domo cathedral/metro station- a bit of a walk with suitcases mind - about 20mins but very easy to find- its not worth paying milan taxi prices for! ;) The hostel is huge, staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful and there is even a welcome beer on arrival and free buffet/apprivo in the evening. Bars, shops and restaurants alll walkable and nearby! Great hostel and great city! Love it! Tip for all travellers whilst visiting milan- Be sure to brush up on some italian because very few people speak english here!! Very easy to pick up however you already understand french/spanish

The staff really knows what a good hostel needs and it put everything in this hostel plus a good portion of friendlyness from the heart.
If you just want to be left in peace they acknowledge that as well as when you ask for help. If you ask for anything they really go out of their way to help you.
The rooms are very clean and get made every day. I highly recommend this hostel.
