It was closed when I got there!!!!!! I was deceived!!!!!
The hostel is nice with nice cooperative staff. the location was just fantastic as you can come and go by public transportation any time of the day or night. finally the place is very clean but again they shouldn't charge us taxes as they don't, for sure give this money to the government and we should get it back at the airport
Went there for a short trip, the staff are helpful and tried their best to answer our questions n giving us information. Toilets and room are clean. The hostel is located near the station but due to lack of signboard,we got slightly confused. Around 8 mins walk from the station.
Boy at the front was a little rude and wasn't very good at explaining things ie where the toilet is, how to lock the door etc
The location was good in terms of proximity to the train station but bad in terms of being close to the center, as the location goes away from the center from the station rather than toward it. It could use lockers for security. The staff were friendly and helpful. Expect a bed for a night and hopefully some new traveler friends but not much more.
Quite far from main attractions, provides clean place to stay with good showers and laundry facilities etc. Beds were camp bed style and very uncomfortable, windows on ground floor would not shut and had no curtains - so relatively poor nights sleep.
A good place to stay for groups of friends looking for a cheap and comforting sleep. Reliable, secure and friendly.
Central Station was clean and comfortable. I stayed there 2 nights: once in a shared room, & once in a private room. If in a shared room, make sure to bring a lock for your luggage just in case because there is only one key per room. The staff was kind and quiet, & the bathroom was clean. The bed was a bit thin, but not uncomfortable. The biggest downside was street noise, and the area looks a bit shady, but actually didn't seem unsafe. If you want to stay near the train station, this was great!

I have only two complaints: no hot water whatsoever in the showers, and I acquired many bug bites while staying here. The bug bites are not to say that the place is not clean, because there wasn't a moment I was here and there wasn't someone cleaning. I don't know what to say about the showers though. There is no common area in this hostel so this is not that hang-out-and-make-friends sort of place, but for a few night in the city it's a great value for a bed.

Great location if looking for somewhere close to the train station, very nice staff, clean - just not as easy to meet people and no common areas.
When we got the the room there were an incredible smell of foot odor. The breakfast for 2€ is horrible (please, don't eat here, go to the cafe next door) and the hostel IS NOT 200 METERS FROM TRAIN STATION (maybe in straight line, but since you don't fly over buildings, it's about a 15min walk...)
This hostel was terrifying, DO NOT STAY HERE! We booked it because it looked like it would be close to the train station, but it is a horrifying 20 minute walk, located in the shadiest neighborhood. The hostel is impossible to find, the only clue we had was the button on the buzzer of a building that was labeled 'Dentist'. The people already staying there looked like thugs. The hallways were dim and dirty. You couldn't pay me to stay here. We weren't even given a key to our own room.
Run by a discreet family originally from Shandong Province, the hostel is basic but comfortable and very clean. Sheets and towels are professionally laundered. It is on the ground floor of a typically Milanese building. There is no garden, kitchen or common room, but for one or two nights it is fine and close to the main railway station.
