The hostel is an outdated and dilapidated building. Having paid for two nights, after booking on the phone, we were told to leave after one night as the hostel claimed we had underpaid. This is despite being told we had paid for two nights at the start of our stay. The night manager became abusive and confrontational and was unprofessional... More

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

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... More

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... More

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... More

So disappointed. Don't stay here. They literally kick you out between 10 AM to 12 PM to Clean, you're not allowed back into your room. Hated it. Showers were cold, staff was rude, there was no plug ins or lights to read in the room, no restaurant, wifi was bad, old and felt like staying in a prison. Will never... More

Cannot stress enough - DO NOT STAY HERE!! Rooms are horrible, bathrooms were dirty and the whole hostel looks like an old prison or psych hospital. Staff werent helpful, in the middle of no where and the breakfast was terrible! We are not fussy people but this was awful, had nothing to offer beside a cheap price.

Positives: breakfast. It was good, with bread, jam, biscuits you could take away, cereals and milk. Negatives: there wasn't hot water in the morning, the cleaning of the bathrooms is far away from the ideal and there was A LOT of noise in the corridors. There was many teens hosted, and they were running, screaming, and no one from the... More
