“Bad experience, completely unprofessional”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

We had reserved a room for two in this hostel but were completely disappointed when we arrived in Milano.
This B&B is situated in a backyard, without a label of a few square centimeters on the wall, you wouldn't even find it.
A very unprofessional staff member received us in the backyard and accompanied us inside.
The photo of the kitchen they present is actually the corridor, but ok, so far everything is fine for a B&B location for one night.
He made us sign the check-in documents without having any idea about the room we had reserved one night before. After he had a few phone calls with some person (probably some other staff member), we guessed that the hostel was actually complete. He asked us again and again if we had received a confirmation mail from Booking.com (would we go to Milan without that?). Finally, he took some bed sheets, which proved that there was no room prepared for us and wanted us to get on his car in order to bring us we don't know where. So we decided to leave and were forced to look for another hostel for the same night.
When we had left, he stayed for some more 5 minutes on the phone with the other person. This means that the hostel is really unorganised.

Really unprofessional and dubious handling! I have no idea where all the positive comments come from but we advise you to better choose another place to sleep in order to have a pleasant stay!

Location is great, just 10 mins walk from cental train station.

Rooms and washroom are absolutely clean, the owner clean it thoroughly every afternoon.

Wifi network was fast and stable.

Plus the owner was super nice and very helpful!
