Friendly stuff, possible to arrive late in the night, if you arrange it before. Clean, quiet, not far from the city center. Wifi working. Breakfast too simple, not enough toilettes and bathrooms, so prepare for waiting.

The two receptionist were friendly enough. Room was clean. There's not much for breakfast except some croissants, you are pretty much on your own. There are only two functional electric sockets in a room for three, one of them is already used for the fan .If the day temperature is higher than 30, at night it would still be hot... More

Recently a whole week booked in this Star hotel Milan. A hostel with 7 rooms, sober but sufficient decorated. We, two girls of 60+ got a 3 persons room that was new decorated. The Italian breakfast is simple and you make it yourselves. Big plus points were: Hygiene throughout the property, (several times cleaned). Situation location. (Just outside Milano and... More

There are so many things about this hostel that are just ridiculous! There's no sign out the front only a button on the intercom of the apartment building. Room and facilities are pretty bad. Worst of all, there's a curfew from 1am till 10am. So if your out of the building during this time you can't get in, which is... More

I've been to many hostels around the Europe (some of the were much cheaper) and this one was the worst I have ever been to. The bed, the linen and the towel (big holes included!) were so smelly, we really loathed to use it, blah. But the most disgusting was the dirty bathroom and the toilet - seems like never... More

During our check-in, I was curious to find out if we were allowed to take the room key with us when we go out.... the receptionist went mental on the thought that we didn't want to leave the key at reception. The receptionist (who supposedly was the owner of the Star Hostel Franchise throughout Europe) started shouting, and threatened me... More

The reviews here are quite bad, but I was positively surprised. Booked this because it was cheap. Finding the entrance was very hard - it is only a small sticker on a big doorbell panel. No sign or anything.. Relatively roomy. The guy at the front desk was nice and informed us about bus lines and how to get here... More

After reading the comments below, me and my friends had been prepared for a horrifying experience. However, the accommodation was not bad at all, it is not luxurious but you should have realistic expectations given the price you pay. It was clean and we didn't have any problems. Breakfast is not rich (1 croissant per person + coffee, tea..) but... More

One of the receptionists was so pushy asking so many questions to see what disgusting things he could get just the first day I arrived that thanks to my intuition I did't return the majority of time I stayed there. I left before I had to and I don't recomend it at all. Better go to another place where people... More
