“Live, from Milano Italy.....”
Reviewed February 28, 2007

....it's Piero Rotta! My advice? Avoid this place.

I'm writting this from the hostel, and for the most part, it's pretty bad. Old building, questionable bathrooms (not filthy, but it's not pleasant), not really secure (the porch door in my room pulls open, even when 'locked', the main door to the room doesn't automatically shut, and a lot of the locker doors are visibly bent from people breaking into them), not the best location (right now, there's a bunch of locals in the parking lot drinking and playing loud music, at 11:30pm, and I'm pretty sure that I saw a prostitute less than a block away), noisy, and generally very poor, especially in comparison with other hostels I've been in.

The other travelers can be alright, but that's the highlight of the hostel: Everything that's not actually part of it. If you set your expectations suitably low, it might beat them out, but that's not saying much.

Bottom Line: Milan has to offer better than this.

I spent a night at Piero Rotta Hostel (we are 41 and 43 years old) and after all the bad reviews we found in the www we expected bugs, dirt and lousy breakfast (and unfriendly staff).
But surprise, surprise: rooms extremly clean, 6 bed rooms with balcony, staff very helpful, breakfast very good (with coffee, hot choclate!!!!, tea, cornflakes, bred, butter, cheese). Only thing one could improve: water in the showers was not realy hot but everything was really clean and I would stay there anytime (and I usually stay in good hotels). Furthermore we came to the hotel at 2 am and there was no problem with late check in or curfew.

  • Liked — cheap, clean, near to underground station
  • Disliked — no really hot water (at least not in the shower I tried)
  • Tips/Secrets — this hostel is not as bad as the reviews at all!
