Great location, nice big room, free map, fantastic reception staff….and that's where the positives end. My room was spacious with three beds, a sink and a shower....and had not been cleaned. The beds had been made, but the bin had not been emptied and the floor was covered in the last occupant's hairs (as was the shower, along with their...

We stayed three nights, found it good value for money, and had bathroom/toilet en suite. From the outside it really looks dodgy but once inside it's pleasant. Great staff, very helpful and knowledgable. The location is good, very close to trams and subways. (The public transport in Milan is excellent and cheap).

The Ambrosiana hostel is a good hostel for it's price. It is a cheap hostel compared to much other hostels in the area. The reason for this is mostly the small rooms, not so good hygiene and low quality breakfast. There were upsides to the hotel too: very vriendly people, 24 hour reception and great place in the city centre....

It's a small hostel with a few rooms but there isn't a shower in every room. Kind staff, good breakfast. I can recommend this hostel if want to spend about 20? per night, it`s near the metro station-about 7min by feet, to the railway station-15min by feet,

The room was clean, the staff very friendly and helful. Ambrosiana hotel is located within easy distance to the centre and the main train station. I didn't have the breakfast so I can't rate that, but there is also access to a small kitchen which was useful.
