So disappointed. Don't stay here. They literally kick you out between 10 AM to 12 PM to Clean, you're not allowed back into your room. Hated it. Showers were cold, staff was rude, there was no plug ins or lights to read in the room, no restaurant, wifi was bad, old and felt like staying in a prison. Will never...

Cannot stress enough - DO NOT STAY HERE!! Rooms are horrible, bathrooms were dirty and the whole hostel looks like an old prison or psych hospital. Staff werent helpful, in the middle of no where and the breakfast was terrible! We are not fussy people but this was awful, had nothing to offer beside a cheap price.

Positives: breakfast. It was good, with bread, jam, biscuits you could take away, cereals and milk. Negatives: there wasn't hot water in the morning, the cleaning of the bathrooms is far away from the ideal and there was A LOT of noise in the corridors. There was many teens hosted, and they were running, screaming, and no one from the...

The hostel is far from the city center, you need to go by bus or metro but apart from that the staff is nice and helpful, the bedrooms are big enough for 6 people, there are plenty of lockers with so much space in case you want to put some value stuff inside and the breakfast included in the price...

Its a bit isolated from the turistic area, but you wont have problems to find it. Its clean enough, good breakfast compared to other hostels of the same price, and i didnt had problems with the staff or others guests. I had a little trouble with the wifi, but the staff helped me with that. Rooms lack individual lights and...

For a schooltrip its quite adequate. Utterly basic, worn down, but still working and full. Needs an upgrade badly. Worst are the mostly cold showers. Beds are good, but watch the planking on top tiers. Location close to metro is ideal.

Check in was very time consuming .. room was clean, Staff was not that friendly, soap /shaving kit and other toiletries vending machine, pack food / drink vending machine available and very reasonable price, cloakroom,...

In Milan for only a few nights, and weren't planning on spending any time at the accommodation anyway, so were happy to go with a cost-effective option. Not particularly efficient check-in, had to wait ten minutes while they changed over shifts. But they had our reservation and it was correct, so can be overlooked. No problems here - the rooms...

Honestly believe that it was pure luck that the weather was cool, when we stayed. (a fan was provided, upon request. First come first served) It's a hostel so bring your own towels! We stayed on 3rd floor, double room w private ensuite. Which seemed renovated and pretty modern. Toilets seemed decent. (Switch to de-activate the alarm - if you...

When we first got there the lady serving us was a bit rude about the membership card for Hostels International which you must have or pay an extra 3 euro per person per night. She kept saying we were stupid and doesn't get why we didn't pay for one at home before we came because we obviously would benefit from...
