The Hostel is great for travelers on a budget. For just over 20 Euro, I was able to secure a bed in a four-bedded dorm. The hostel is right in the center of Milan, only two underground stops from the Central Station, and close to a variety of Kebab stores, Pizzerias and cheap restaurants, as well as supermarkets.

The location of the hostel can be difficult to find as the directions aren't clearly given, however when wanting to travel to the centre from the hostel the metro underground is only a 2 minute walk from the hostel and tickets are cheap. It is also a 5 minute walk from the main shopping street which leads you right to... More

Near Piazzale Loreto, 100 meters away from the metro station, it was a very convenient and economical option for people like me the next morning had to go to the central train station to take the shuttle bus to the airport, in fact in only 10 minutes from here you'll get at the central train station. This hostel is good... More

The hostel is cheap, but the double beds are very small for two persons if you're not a couple... (I don't know, but a don't think, that they put guests there in one bed, which didn't book together. There are also single beds.) The hostel is very close to a metro station, which is only two stations to Milano Centrale.... More

I was there in July. I came before check-in to leave bag in the hostel and man on reception sad just to put it near doors of my room, so if you expect to find camera for luggage forget about it! The room was 4-bed and I've stayed for 2 days (beddings hasn't changed during this time). Also I was... More

From reading previous reviews I was not expecting much however, me and my friends were pleasantly surprised with the hostel. The location was good, 20 minute walk from the train station, 10 minutes from Buenos Aries. From the outside it does not look much and if you're not looking properly it is hard to miss. The rooms are spacious, clean... More

Not a great experience. We had booked a private, instead got a shared for 8 people. They did nothing about it, and in fact refused to give our money back so we could go somewhere else. They said it was a "mistake on the part of the booking site hostels.com, and they were not responsible". I must say, aside from... More
