First off it's title should be Mosquito Hostel not Zebra Hostel, because there was a definite mosquito infestation due to the hostel being constantly damp. One friend in particular left with 14 mosquito bites. The shabby 80s decor and zebra theme that runs through the hostel was a clear warning sign. There were 10 of us which a large group... More

This is the worst hostel we've ever stayed in. I really don't understand how this hostel ended up in the Lonely Planet Europe on a Shoestring guidebook! There are so many bad things about the hostel that I'll make a list: 1. Bed bugs in the room! We first thought it was mosquitos, as the hostel also crawls with mosquitos... More

The service was like absent: you are even told to wash the dishes and the bed was not made even in the arrival. It stinks (humidity). Really high noice until 2.00 AM... More

Bed's and sheets feel dirty. Everything is old. Needs a refurb. I have stayed in alot of backpackers and although the staff are nice the place is fairly average. Also not very secure all dorms have unlocked doors so people could come in as they please. The only security are some old lockers in the rooms.

This hostel has everything you need, but at a low standard. It is close to the centre of town and on the tram line, short work to the metro. The rooms have airconditioning but it is shared between all the interconnecting rooms, so if someone leaves the door open down the hall everyone is hot!! Also mosquitos were bad, although... More

This was the most expensive hostel we stayed in during our trip around Europe and by far the worst. I can't even believe we paid as much as we did to stay in this dusty, dirty, old and terribly unfriendly place. The showers had pretty much no temperature control, just one extreme or the other. The rooms just had this... More

This hostel is quite old and dirty. There is no hot water for bathing. There is only one socket in 6-shared dorm. I visited Milan in the summer, there was no air-con or fan in the dorm. Small locker is provided. The room's door cannot be locked. Staffs are not really friendly.

This is your standard hostel. It has a common area with wifi, computers, a tv, and places to lounge. It has a full kitchen complete with stoves, a fridge, cutlery, and a microwave. The dorms are basic. Each room has several plugs for people to share and lockers (which i found too small). Overall, this place is nothing special but... More

The Zebra hostel in Milano truly took us by surprise. My friend and I have been interrailing for two weeks now and as you do, booked hostels to stay in, however so far there has only been one hostel which took our breath away - I literally stopped breathing for a moment when I saw the dump that calls itself...

Stayed there for 2 nights with another friend. One of the least entertaining backpacking hostels in Europe. No activities, Toilets need a deepclean - dont think toilets and showers we cleaned for our duration of our stay and probably more. We did see housekeeping staff but think they were only interested in cleaning mirrors. no activities arranged by the hostel,... More
