For a short week I stayed at this hostel, located in the grounds of a former psychiatric institute, in the northern Milano suburb of Affori (though the compound still seems to function as some kind of hospital or hospice). This hostel has some semi-permanent and...More

Not a good neighborhood. Trash after saturday market on the street. Welcoming and helping people in the reception. Could not sleep because of a ceremony in the garden (it was still going on when we left in the morning).

While visiting milan with our school, they booked us rooms at ostellolinda. It certainly wouldn't have been my choice when booking a stay in Milan, and after reading previous reviews I was scared of staying here. It was however, not that bad at all. The...More

Would you fancy sleeping in a park? Why not booking a hostel plunged in a lush green park and, maybe, having dinner a la carte at Jodok restaurant that suggests Italian dishes such as marinated anchovies, lamb More ragout tagliolini, steak tartare, strawberry cheesecake... After dinner...Theatre shows! In June and July from Tuesdays to Sundays "Da Vicino Nessuno e normale" festival offers a review of the best Italian theatre productions: Teatro la Fortezza, Societas Raffaello Sanzio, le Albe... All this in one square mile! Strolling along alleys lit beautifully by garlands of lamps under linden trees, sycamores, centennial oaks... All this is Olinda! But that is not all... Come and meet Maria and Andrea who live all year round at the OstellOlinda and who share their life experiences with backpackers, tourists and actors. This is what we mean by an integrated hostel. A mix of different experiences. Actors, clowns, university students and teachers, adventurous backpackers, refugees and immigrants mingle themselves with persons who have been living in the past in psychiatric structures and who have a deep understanding of life and who gladly share their sympathy (for free!) You can also meet Roberto, Giovanni, Eva, Alessandra, Barbara and Davide of the reception or Pino and Marco of the housekeeping staff, all satisfied workers of "La Fabbrica di Olinda" a social firm that, from 1999 develops production activities and social economic structures to find employement for fragile and disadvantaged people. Besides, every Thursday you can enjoy an excellent aperitif with high quality live music with JODOK STORIES. You can find too a countryside corner in the city wandering about the urban vegetable gardens located in the park; among hens, chickens, rabbits and luxuriant medicinal plants at IL GIARDINO DEGLI AROMI.
