I was super happy when I arrived at the hostel. The staff was super-friendly, even that I didn't know any Italian. The room was big, clean and even had it's own sink. I couldn't imagine any better place to stay. But when I came back from my first walk trough the city, with all the other people staying in the... More

The staff were very helpful. The rooms and bathrooms nice and clean. Even the private room with shared bathroom has one bathroom for two rooms right next to it so it is as good as having it ensuite. Nice common space. It's far from the city centre but very close to the metro station. My main feedback is that they... More

The thing that frustrated me most about Ostell Olinda was how unhelpful/bemusingly confused the staff seemed to be. One lady, possibly in her late 20s with dark brown hair, checked me in and gave me NO information whatsoever. I had to go down and ask her for a blanket as well as a towel. Any queries were met with a... More

I can see this was a functional hostel, and some might have had an enjoyable stay. the bathrooms are good and the staff are ready to help. The hostel is quite far out, but the metro is close and convenient (10 min to centre), but this info was not provided in booking confirmation so we had to get an expensive... More

Well to start with the only directions they give you on booking are by car but we arrived from the station. The taxi driver had a really struggle to find it because it had no number 45 on the outside like it should have done. Just OstellOlinda in tiny writing on a huge wooden yellow arch on the front of...

So I booked this hostel simply because it was one of the cheapest that I could find. Trust me its cheap for a reason and you're much better off finding a nicer place to stay than a creepy former mental hospital in the middle of nowhere. The absolute worst hostel I have ever stayed in and it was also on... More

This hostel is literally in the middle of nowhere. Its the second last stop on the metro line. It is also not easy to find-hidden in an old hospital complex with no signs! The rooms are okay, spacious, but youll have staff members walking in and out for no reason and the rooms arent cleaned everyday. There is a communal... More

The beds are old hospital beds. The area is really remote with tons of misquitos. The grounds don't look like that picture. It isn't awful but I am still itching from the experience and I had a private room. Def find another option and use this as a last resort. The people with the 5 stars must be employees because...

Nice hostel just a few stops away from the city center. The staff was kind and most helpful, we asked for some advice on best spots to be visited in Milan and nice pubs and restaurants and the guy at the reception printed out some maps and explained us everything, he was so kind! The hostel was clean and quite... More
