“One of the best hostels I've been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Knowing the quality and cleanliness of most hostels in Italy, this one was brilliant. Clean rooms and bathrooms, for 16 euro pp you get 2 bathrooms in a room of 4! Quiet, very very close to metro station, neighbouhood seemed OK, only you get charged for lockers, tourist tax, towels and things like that - which was surprising.
Oh one thing that was strange - the top beds in bunk beds didn't have any side protection.. so seriously, I was worried that at night I may fall off.. But the beds were otherwise pretty modern, I would say almost brand new.
Considering the pricing and quality of hostels, and even hotels in Milan - this one was a great deal for me. If I come to Milan again, and I'm on my own - heading right to this one.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

I was stunned by the cleanliness, infrastructure and furnishings in the hostel which are world class. The location of the hostel is close to the train station as well as metro station and has decent eating places nearby.

However all this got overshadowed by the attitude the hostel has towards backpackers. The towels, cutlery, and even luggage storage is charged exorbitantly. The checkin times are a little too weird. With the price they are charging for rooms, they can be real famous for the rooms they have if they can improve the other things.
