“Not great hostel but nice staff”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

The hostel didn't have the most comfortable rooms, the beds weren't very comfortable and the linens did not fit the bed and were uncomfortable. The toilets also didn't have toilet seats. It was a bit of a walk for the metro as well. However the staff was very friendly and helpful so that made up for it a bit.

Well when booking for Milan most places seemed out of our budget but Hostel Galla stood out as our best option despite its rather unknown location however we realised this was a mistake by the hostel in terms of price. So I guess value wise this may not be the best option.

The hostel is very small, with only a couple of rooms but I think they recently refurbished them. Location wise I wouldn't really consider this place because it is not that close to any station or attraction but there are supermarkets and restaurants around.

Small hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. It only has about 5 rooms, the main downside being that there is only one female and one male bathroom for all the rooms and no communal area. The rooms were clean and comfortable though, and I had a good night's sleep. It's not far from the metro but not the most central hostel - good value though as other options were really quite pricey. Staff were able to recommend good local pizzeria and also provide information on the main sights to see in my one evening in Milan
