The hostel is run by a bunch of crooks, that prey on travellers. They advertise on hostelbookers and hostelworld, and always accept unlimited bookings, even if they are full. Then when people turn up, they pretend they haven't received your booking, and send you to "another hostel" on the other side of town. This is actually just the same people, who have an awful apartment converted into an awful dorm. They think they can get away with this. Don't ever stay here, and warn everyone else from ever staying here.

If you don't have high expectations and need an affordable place to stay for one or two nights in Milan, Hotel Emmy will suffice. Having said that, beware - the bare bones hotel is on the 4th floor of an old, run down building (peeling paint, etc.). The building's ancient elevator is very small and not always in working order therefore be prepared to drag your luggage up four flights of stairs. The proprietors are chain smokers so the entire hotel reeks of smoke. As a non-smoker I put a towel under my door and kept my window open and I was fine except when in the “reception area.” We asked for the largest room that had its own bathroom (#3) however we saw two other rooms that had single (very tiny) beds and a shared bathroom in the hallway. I’d ask for #3 if possible as it is the furthest down the hall and has a bit more privacy and a TV. The rooms are as one star as they come; outdated furniture, broken fixtures, somewhat functioning plumbing (the hot water was off for one day of our stay) but the linens were clean and we felt safe as the hotel staff are on site (apparently busying themselves by smoking). This is a place where you definitely want to bargain the room rate down & it will help if you speak Italian. The hotel is next to a street with trolleys and busses so expect noise early in the morning.

The best part of the hotel is the local’s restaurant downstairs & just outside the building: Becco Fino. From 12:30 – 3:00pm you can get a full lunch (appetizer, main dish, wine, etc.) for EUR 8.00. The food is great and it has to be the best bargain in Milan. The hotel is also close to a metro stop and several mini marts.

There is another hotel, Hotel Gambara, located in the same building on the 2nd floor. It appeared to be along the same line as Emmy (if not a bit more expensive).
