“Got what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Considering the nice location of the hotel and the price per night in a city like Milan, I'd say it's worth for its value. The room is spacious. Staff were ok. Location really easy to reach by public transportation. We stayed in a room for 3, there was a restroom inside our room. Enoug bathroom in the hall.
Cons: room was a bit cold but it was ok since the blanket was good

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Upsides: Good location, close to shopping on Corso Buenos Aires, the train station, and a metro stop. Easy to find, affordable, free WiFi, three bathrooms to a hall. Drinks and some food available for purchase at the front desk. Free towels. Elevator.

Downsides: Terrible, terrible mattress. Beds are uncomfortably close together. No air conditioning. In between Reppublica and Corso Buenos Aires, so it's really, really loud outside, all night long. WiFi, while free, is highly unreliable.

Other things to be aware of: There isn't an age limit here, so know that you might be sharing a room with creepy middle-aged men, if that sort of thing bothers you.

Room Tip: The less people the better.

Positives:
Staff were pleasant but their English was poor (Chinese/Korean, I guess)
Bed was excellent, shower worked. Excellent position 10 minutes' walk from Central Station
2 minutes from C.SO Buenos Aires (main shopping street) Everything else close at hand - internet cafe, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks etc

Negatives:
Hotel was not clean - room especially so
No tea/coffee, hotel/city guide
Poor value for money - for 30 euros more there were fine tourist hotels nearby.

No a/c and room far too hot (even in May!) Had to sleep with window open - rained overnight and this would have drenched all my belongings if I had not had them next to bed.
Internet was dial-up slow (free of charge)

It was OK for a one night crash for one person but otherwise I'd avoid.

Room Tip: Without being sarcastic ..... there are no good rooms.

Free high speed WiFi and great location (walking distance to either Milano Centralle or Porta Venezia Metro stop) are two main reasons to stay here.
Staffs are Chinese who speak good English (women) or at least sufficient English (man).
It's also clean and safe enough, at least for me.
However, the price is quite high for a 4 beds shared room with no breakfast included.
It's also quite noisy (of course, it's located on a main artery) if you aren't used to sleep with some noise.

The location of this hostel is good, it's some minutes walk from Central train station, the staff is very friendly and nice, I found the price a little high for a 4 beds shared room with shared bathroom and no breakfast. I felt that the bed I slept on was not the cleanest one, and the room was very very hot with no a/c and just a little fan that didn't help at all.

Big noise you can not avoid, because it's on a main artery, full of cars, busses, trams, trucks. One can't close the windows in the summer because the hotel has no A/C.
We are very frugal travelers, want only a decent place to sleep and shower, but this was way under par. Little more than a shack, management seems to be really greedy.
For the same price get a much better deal at Euro Hotel, by Porta Venezia, a couple hundred meters away, very quiet, shick, clean, with a delicious buffet breakfast included and manned by really nice people.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2009

We only stayed for one night and it was ok for that. The room was small and out to a big street so it was very noisy at night. The bathroom was tiny-one couldn't sit on the toilet without banging one's knees at the sink. The ceiling of the bathroom was completely mouldy and the whole room smelled of it. A big plus is the location: 10 minutes from Milano central station and town centre. The staff was friendly, too.
