The location was very good, close to a metro station and to restaurants. Although it's in an old building the hostel was very clean. The room was a bit cold at night but additional blankets where available in the room. The staff was very friendly and resourceful, we received precise information that we needed to visit the city. Breakfast was included and towels were provided free of charge.

Very clean, small rooms, basic, really hot water. Best thing was the really friendly helpful staff.
Not so good if you have a problem with stairs as there are a lot to carry luggage up.
Strange kind of entrance not at all where you would expect to find a hotel but once found - "atmospherical"
One complaint only, the bell to the hotel on the street did not work and without a telephone to call them if the door was locked [ often ] you had to wait until someone came in or out.

Would stay there again though.

i booked this hotel very last minute, for the location was very good price, i didn't take into account i was travelling with my mother who has issues with her knees, and so all the steps were very tiring, but if i was with friends its wouldn't have been a problem. the receptionists were very helpful, the room was a little noisy, there was a football court underneath the window. good value hotel

Small, clean room with en suite; free internet & (very basic & simple)breakfast included. The access to the hotel was across a dirty coutyard, & up a flight of stairs, as it is located on the 1st floor, without lift access. This would be difficult with heavy luggage. The hotel was the only one within several blocks from the central station at a reasonable price, & we stayed only 1 night.
The main problem I had was, after reserving a 'no smoking' room, I suddenly found the room filling with cigarette smoke. The only window (necessary for ventilation) opened on the only balcony smokers could access from the Breakfast room/Kitchen. That window was left shut most of the rest of our stay.

Room Tip: There may be other rooms which do not open onto this balcony, so would be worth enquiring before boo...

We only needed a place to stay for one night. Our flight arrived late at night and our train departed Milan Central Station early in the morning.

It had Wifi, was clean and there was a shower and sink in the room.It was a big and spacious room.

There did seem to be some construction work going on outside, but I am not sure if or when it occurred, we left before 7 a.m.

I've booked this hotel as it was the best price in that area. The room was very basic but with private WC and it was clean. Free Internet. Free breakfast - it's very simple, but it's normal for Milano hotels. The staff is very welcome and they really ready to help you with any issues you might have. The location is great - close to the main shopping area - Corso Buenos Aires. So, recommended for stay

The entrance to this hostel is really poor at the moment. Entry is by way of a courtyard which is currently a building site, then the stairs up to the hostel on the first floor (no lift) are quite grotty.
Dragging my bad up the stairs in the muggy warmth of Milan was not good, but I got a very warm welcome. My single room was basic but very clean, comfortable bed with good sheets and towels are provided. My room had a shower and bidet with a shared toilet in the corridor.
Breakfast was basic but good and there is a lovely balcony to sit on outside.
Good cooking facilities also for budget travellers. I was only there one night so didn't use this facility.
The location is excellent being near the Lima Metro stop, lots of nice cafes around too.
I loved the city of Milan and did lots of walking and felt very safe in this area.
The hostel is under new management and there is still work going on so it may all look different in future.
I was very happy with my stay due to the location, the lovely staff and the cleanliness.
