“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I am an older women and was travelling with my daughter and we stayed here for 1 night only but I would've stayed more if it was available.
The hostel had a fantastic feeling, was really friendly, the food and drinks were well priced and delicious and the music was great to listen to.
We stayed in a private room and it was roomy, really well set out and the bathroom was also spacious and clean.
I loved it and would stay again when in Milan.

This place was amazing on arrival we got a free welcome drink which was lovely, the receptionist lady was so nice she went out of her way to help us and make sure our stay was amazing! You pay 4 euros and get a buffet what more could you want! Honestly book it! It was the best hostel I have stayed in and I've been traveling for 2 months now! Do it you won't regret it!

Best hostel I've stayed in. It is good for the price and has a great atmosphere. Really great staff too. Only negative is that it wasn't quiet (nothing louder than the sound of a quiet TV in your room though) because lots of people hang out in the cafe on the ground floor at night.

The is one of the best hostels that I have stayed at, frankly it is better than most budget hotels....

We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff, the hostel had answers to all the questions a traveller would have and their English skills were great. Our free drink upon arrival went down nicely.

One of the staff escorted us to our double bed room on the third floor, she provided us with all the information we needed. The room itself was small, good mattress, good storage areas for bags etc, small basic ensuite, window looking over the lower courtyard and adjoining buildings.

The room is nothing amazing, but it has everything you need and was clean and tidy. The room was tidied daily with the bed made etc, above and beyond the sort of service you would expect from a hostel. Free wifi in the rooms.

Nightly the downstairs area is a hive of activity with a mix of locals, travellers and guests enjoying drinks and food. Make sure to get there at 6pm to enjoy aperitivo and meet with some fellow travellers. The common areas had everything a traveler needs, free wifi, lonely planet books, maps, suggested local guides to milan, and so on...

The kitchen facilities are well appointed and there are four common areas to relax, two large balconies, kitchen area with a small dinning table and the bar/reception area on the ground floor.

Only downsides I could see was some noise from the outside areas, but this is mitigated by the double glazed windows and solid doors. Overall, for the 80 euro a night for a double room it was great value. The breakfast was very basic, but perfectly fine for hostel standards.

I did not see any of the dorm rooms, but if they are of a similar standard to our room they will be welcomed by backpackers etc.

This is a perfect location for backpackers and the cost conscious traveler. Highly recommended. Location is fantastic, near the Duomo and other attractions and also close to multiple metro stations.

I got stuck in a bizarre situation recently where my other accommodation fell through. I arrived super late and the staff organised me a place to sleep.

They were super helpful for directions, obtaining food, luggage storage. Always with a smile. The common area is great to hang out in and the wifi is excellent.

A big thank you to everyone there!

Stayed for 1 night in a 8-bed mixed dorm. Staff were super helpful and friendly to all guests. Facilities were clean and neat. Cheap drinks and food available at the hostel too.

Really liked the location of this place; plenty of shopping, eating and sightseeing options within walking distance! Easier and more straightforward to get to hostel from Duomo metro station compared to Missori station.

Good thing that the noise from level 1 reception (at 2am) did not seep through to the rooms upstairs. Bunker beds were were super creaky though :/

There really isn't praise high enough for this hostel. We didn't have high expectations for Milan, but were pleasantly surprised to find a fantastic city! And Ostello Bello really did make our experience.

The staff we incredibly friendly and helpful. On arrival you are given a (free) welcome drink of your choice from the bar, there's nothing better after a long sticky train journey.

Breakfast was included, and authentic Italian food was given for free in the evenings when you bought a drink. Both were delicious.

I highly reccomend this hostel to anyone wanting to visit Milan, it truly deserves its fantastic reputation!
