While not smack bang in the centre of town, Hostel Colours is not too far out to be inconvenient. However, the area is not particularly busy at night, and I got in very late on my first nights and felt slightly wary of how vulnerable I was trying to navigate the streets from the metro when I'd never been there before. Luckily I had screenshotted the walking directions and map from Google directions on my phone before I left, so I knew where I was going even though I didn't have a map of Milan yet.
There was some confusion one night because too many people seemed to be booked into our room, and the guy from reception all of a sudden seemed to lose all of his English speaking ability. It got sorted eventually, but it was annoying and an indicator of the organisation skills of the staff and the system.
Breakfast is free, but basic. Expect plain croissants from a package and possibly some bread, with a few spreads available. If you are on a budget and don't want to buy dinner, there are 2 supermarkets within quick walking distance and a fridge that you can store your food in. However, there is no stove, just a microwave and a toaster oven, so be aware of that when making food choices.
The common areas are nice, and during the busy season, it is very easy to make friends if you are willing to introduce yourself. Otherwise, it is equally as easy to sit on your own on your phone and not meet anyone for your entire stay.
