“Everything you need!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

Great location, just 5 minutes from the metro which takes you all over the city. So worth the price considering it's Milan! The room was very clean, way above my expectations. There is also a supermarket and many restaurants and pubs close by. Breakfast isn't amazing but it is very good for the price. The staff are also very nice. Only bad thing is that it is extremely difficult to find, there was no signage at all and we just came upon it by chance after searching for ages. All in all very good!

Location is convenient (next to the tube station) and staff was welcoming. However, the room was just next to reception and very noisy, the shared bathroom was very dirty. Everything we ask we have to pay extra, even changing the sheets of the bed!!!
Overall it was a bad experience, although the staff was welcoming, the place in itself is very cold and dirty.

Sofia Hostel is a good place to stay in Milan, considering the prices of other hostels/hotels. We had three different rooms and all were clean and comfortable. Although note that the 4-bed ensuite room actually only has two barely king-size beds. Our rooms all had their own bathroom, which was nice. Since the shared bathroom downstairs didn't look very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is in a very good location, right in the center. Good WiFi connection. I think it's a good value for the price (considering it's Milan). The only thing is that the place and the rooms are freezing and depending on which room you have it can be pretty noisy (people in the hallway, noise from other rooms).

Hostel accommodation is excellent, a few minutes from the metro, 10 minutes walk to Central Station, 30 minutes to the Duomo. I stayed in a double room alone. They are located in the yard - no noise from the street, through the doors of hearing is excellent. The room is located on the 3rd floor, separate from the reception, own key - almost apartments. When I checked in the room was very clean, but then for 3 days nobody cleaned. Staff constantly cut off heating, had to remind them. But even when the heating, in December the room was cold. The breakfast included coffee machine, toast, butter, jam, croissant. WI-FI speed excellent. The staff is friendly. Good for that money.
