It has all the facilities you can expect from a stay in a hostel! The staff was helpful. Moreover, he location towards the metro is convenient although it takes some time to the city centre. The bathroom facilities are shared.

I was a guest at this hostel with a friend for three nights. While there we suffered an uncountable number of bites from bed bugs. I have backpacked all over central and South America and have never seen bed bugs like this. This hostel was too uncomfortable for us to be able to sleep. The rooms were not secure as... More

We stayed in Milan for 6 days (its a great option if you want to see other northern cities, it takes 3 hours to get to Venice by train (the cheapest one, and correspondindly, not the fastest one)). The hostel is not bad, although for its price it could be better (high season is responsible for the price i guess).... More

as its name implied its a hostel not a hotel. I chose to stay here for 1 night with my elderly parents as a last resort kind of thing, i tried to check the review still as I dont want to be in for a big surprise. Granted its a dormitory type, since we were 3 people staying there, we... More

I rarely say this about places but I definitely won't be going back here! So hot I couldnt sleep, a bathroom shared between a whole floor and in a pretty run down area. The staff didn't speak Rnglish and I had to type in to google translate for him, and the directions were awful - it was late at night... More

This place was a hostel which we chose solely based on its price and reasonable reviews on TripAdvisor. The location was not that good and was a good 5-10 minutes’ walk from the nearest subway line. It was also located in a side street that appeared quite dodgy at night with its poor lighting. There was no lift so we... More

The hostel didn't have the most comfortable rooms, the beds weren't very comfortable and the linens did not fit the bed and were uncomfortable. The toilets also didn't have toilet seats. It was a bit of a walk for the metro as well. However the staff was very friendly and helpful so that made up for it a bit.

Well when booking for Milan most places seemed out of our budget but Hostel Galla stood out as our best option despite its rather unknown location however we realised this was a mistake by the hostel in terms of price. So I guess value wise this may not be the best option. The hostel is very small, with only a... More

Small hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. It only has about 5 rooms, the main downside being that there is only one female and one male bathroom for all the rooms and no communal area. The rooms were clean and comfortable though, and I had a good night's sleep. It's not far from the metro but not the most... More
