This is by far the worst place where I have ever stayed in! Extremely old fashioned and outdated. Outside it might look nice but the inside is totally different. Looks like some old hospital or prison almost. The breakfast was just ridiculously bad. The showers were disgusting just like the toilets. Beds were nasty and we were scared to get... More

I stayed here in March and it was simply very good and the staff is very friendly. It is clean, near the Metro and you can get very quickly to the center. It has so many sightseeings that its rather impossible to see all at once. Better you take at least a week. Enjoy MILANO.

I went to this hostel several times during the last 20 years! I think first time was in November 1993 and at that time it was probably the only hostel in Milan. Last time I spent one night there was in Febraury 2010. Nowadays I won't come back. It's ok if you are on a budget and staying max 1... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More
