Hostel staff is unfriendly and not willing to talk to you in english, only italian.They don´t give you tourist information at all. Rooms are not comfortable and very noisy.It is far from the center of Milan.

I stayed here for 2 nights and did not enjoy any part of my stay. The instructions we got after booking the hostel had a totally different name than the hostel had on the front which made it very hard to find. The building is an old hospital and it shows. The corridors are bland and depressing and the shared...

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...

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...
