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.
Whilst it is difficult to find, once you arrive you get a friendly welcome. The dorms are spacious with comfortable beds and bedding. The small kitchen is well equiped and has a large table that everyone gathers around to drink/talk/get to know each other. The are only two bathrooms so queues do form, one bathroom is really big and nice to use while the other one is smallish but okay. For the price, you can't get better in Milan.
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.
