One of the receptionists was so pushy asking so many questions to see what disgusting things he could get just the first day I arrived that thanks to my intuition I did't return the majority of time I stayed there. I left before I had to and I don't recomend it at all. Better go to another place where people... More

The hostel was very clean, the staff were super helpful, bathroom was shared but not a problem. We left very early in the morning so didn't get breakfast but I understand it is basic. The kitchen was fine. For the price we paid it was great but I'm sure there are better hostels about if you are willing to pay... More

We stayed for one night and we couldn't sleep because it wasn't nice. The price is not that cheap for a hostel and the place is a mess . I would not recommend this hostel because you can find a hotel with better price and better place. They say that breakfast is included , only one croissant and a cup... More

The hostel is not warm at all. All is dirty especially the bathrooms. The only thing that they clean everyday is the bedroom. The kitchen is disgusting. The receptionnist is not really helpful and not welcoming. In one word, dont stay in that hostel.

This place is awful even according to Milan budget modified apartment 'hostels' standards, which are extremely low by themselves. Easily the worst place I've ever stayed in and I've done my fair share of holes for much less. It's not that I found it particularly dirty as the other reviewers, it's just the atmosphere and feeling of the place which... More

My sister and I have been traveling for the last 4 weeks and this place was by far the worst and the dirtiest. The breakfast is a joke, so don't count that as part of the deal. Our bed collapsed and then Bob, the owner accused us of moving it. We asked for a fan for our room on the... More

It's always great to get cheap accommodation but when you have a terrific host like Bob, then it's so much better. Always ready to help, full of energy and laughter, he made our stay very memorable. The hostel has all the basic necessities and has the extra benefit of having the 57 bus stop directly outside. This bus is only... More
