“Worst hostel ever”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

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 stay here again. Ever.

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.

Room Tip: Dont stay here

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 hostel did anything about it.

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 is huge. It consists in a buffet which includes enough type of products for those who prefers some variety in the morning. Besides, in the bathroom, you can find a big number of separated toilets and showers.

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 sockets for eletronics, and the bathrooms didnt had anything for you to put your stuff to avoid getting wet. I think is good hostel for limited budgets, especially in a city as expensive as milan.

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.

Slightly away from City Center, no direction signs on the road.. so slightly difficult to find from QT8 metro station even though 7-8 min walk.. 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, lock & key available, very limited options in breakfast, wifi available.. overall value for cost option in Milan
