It is really ok for what you pay: close to the metro, rather clean bathrooms, kitchen. If you don't intend to spend a lot of time at the hostel, it is def. fine.
An extra bathroom wouldnt hurt In great and easy walking distance from train station!
Things were a bit weird there. There is nothing like atmosphere, you have to pay for the linen, but you still have to be in direct contact with the duvet that is used by every other customer. If you plan on using the metro it's a good location, but if you have to leave for the central station before 5 am, be prepared to walk in shady streets for 30 minutes. At night the clerk was sleeping on a bed in front of the desk. Weird, right? Alright for one night if you're just passing by.
Although they show quite cheap price for us (9 euro),which is the only one advantage of staying here, they charged me 1.5 euro linen and 2 euro tax, so in total 12.50 euro. shower was tight, moreover I couldn't use hot enough water. I was feeling cold. the room was a little dark, someone was staying long days, and maybe becauseof that, the room was smelly. Here You cannot expect to mingle with other travelers
Nice place to stay in Milan! Very close to a metro station and only a few stations away from the very centre!
It is what it is a cheap hostel close too central station kind of. Need to give guests a better description to find the hostel it's further down the street not infront of the metro station and only has a palm size sign out the front easily missed!
good staff and adequate cleanliness of the rooms. it's probably all of the benefits. hostel accomodation is not a very pleasant street, which at night is crawling with people from Pakistan and a huge number of low-quality kebabs-cafe

Very good hostel. We were a bit worried at first since it was pretty cheap when we booked it but it turned out to be one of the nicest hostels we stayed in. The only downside is they advertised they take credit card when we booked but when we got there they said cash only which is quite stressful when you are traveling and have limited cash you carry with you.
There were two employees: a boy very nice and a girl who was absolutely annoying and rude. I couldn't get the chance to take a hot shower in two days, the water was always cold. Although you must pay 1,5€ for linen, they won't even give you a sheet to put between your skin and the blanket that is used from guest to guest without being washed. The information about the municipal tax is false (they will ask you to pay 2€/night) because everybody who is less than 30 years old doesn't need to pay

It's in a big house, very nice place to stay
The best value for the money. It is the cheapest you can find in the city
First a simple suggestion: print out an A4 paper saying "Entrance to hostels" and put it on the front door. Considering that the house has several doors, this would help. It is impossible to go the toilet in the evenings (people showering). I stayed on the upper bed of a bunk bed and there was no ladder to get up. Lockers for security are very small. No locks on dorm doors. Any noise in the corridor echoes and can be heard in the rooms - bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.
Fair priced accommodation if you are passing through Milan for a night and don't want to travel far from the trainstation or crash in your car. Only two bathrooms and queues to be expected, not very homely, but matrices are o.k. and sheets are clean ( although we only got one sheet serving as bed-cover and sheet at the same time). The receptionist was friendly. As said, if you want to stay close to the trainsation and have a chance for free parking it's fine, otherwise a bit far off.
Very basic hostel, but nice, clean and quiet location. There were lots of extra taxes and charges that were not mentioned before arrival.
They charge more than what they offer in hostel world but this hostel is the cheapest I could find. Overall it is good service, clean and WiFi. I recommend it.
This is a clean hostel with friendly staff. Kind of depressing though, wouldn't stay longer than one night. But perfectly fine for 12,5 €/night (with linen included).
You have to pay 3€ for linen, which is ridiculous. Only two bathrooms for a lot os people. Staff is very nice though, always ready to help.
Nice hostel for nice price....No bad sides I found there...Staff friendly, etc.

Not located in the center of Milan. Didn't feel very comfortable in the area. Despite this, staff were friendly and bathrooms were clean.
We only stayed there for one night but it is a cheap and clean place to stay and offers a good base for discovering Milan.There are two big bathrooms and a kitchen to use for all the guests. Staff is really friendly and you get free maps and Information. Besides the hostel is very easy to reach-about 50 meters away from the next subway Station.
