So there's one bathroom for all the dorms. It's full of black mould. It floods so much that the water flows down the corridor outside. The staff didn't mop up this puddle nor provide guests with a suitable courtesy kayak solution. Other highlights include dark stains on one of the blankets and the ample amount of construction around the site.... More

A good place to crash rooms with 4 beds and big window. OK in the summer maybe to hot inside. 24h open reception and good service. The breakfast its a bit the delusion very very simple. There is only one bathroom for several rooms but its quit clean and doesn't smell which is nice.

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
