This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and as a result of both stays I would definitely reccomend this hostel. It is a very clean and safe environment in which you are made to feel welcome. It also has interesting things such as Samba Class going on weekly. The staff are very friendly, knowledgable about their city and more than happy to help you out when you are in need. As they did on more than one occassion for me. Grazie mille.

Little bit stiff atmosphere - not really clear what audience is the target.

This hostel is good if you are focused on the shopping aspect of Milan, definitely not a party hostel. It is also very far from the center of the city and not near a metro stop, so get ready to walk. It is very clean and the staff is very helpful.

Very nice 'apéro' in the evening on the Saturday night that I was there. For 8 EUR you have the run of a buffet of 5 or 6 substantial and freshly prepared dishes + a drink. I changed my plans about heading out for dinner as soon as I saw it. The venue had been chosen by middle-aged locals to celebrate a birthday. The bunk beds don't creak.

It's a very good hostel. The only thing that is not good enough is that the quilts are public and don't seem to be cleaned very often.

Nice place and atmosphere, clean, semi central. A bit noisy since they organize kids birthdays and parties in the common areas in the afternoons. A bit pricy (we paid 70 pounds per night for a bobble room in October).

Lack of personal lockers in the dorm rooms was a drawback. Otherwise the stay was very nice. Fantastic authentic Eritrean dinner prepared by the staff on the weekends (for a reasonable price)!

All in all it's fine, friendly and quiet but atmosphere is a bit dry. Despite the location isn't close to the train station where the airport busses stops/depart which didn't affect me, the hostel is in a nice and safe area. Walking distance to the huge Sempione park, cafe's, restaurants and China town as well as to the tram line. Bunk bed's are shaky. No small kitchen to make your own dish. Wlan available but no additional PC with internet connection provided.

I really liked the stay in this hostel. Since the time that I arrived the lady was really gentile and the best of all she also talks spanish! So it was great, the rooms are very clean, they give you a towel and every time in the morning they clean the rooms so that's a plus. Also when you arrived from the airport you shall think it's far from the center but no! It's really close to the main attractions

Breakfast on Sunday consisted of a bag of dry biscuits left unopened on a table with water. Next day we got a fresh coissant and coffee. Specifically said no stairs and rooms all on the top of a 4 floor walk up. Never told this when communicating. VERY noisy location and common area. Trash pickup and traffic on street kept us up all night. Not the place to go if you hope to sleep! Nice enough owner but not comfortable in any way and needs some TLC.

Breakfast was a bit so so apart from the awesome coffee. I met cool people here though it seemed relatively quiet and bit removed from the main area ( though quite close by tram). Main fault was that we weren't able to leave our bags there for the 12 or so hours between checkout and our flight meaning we had to lug heavy backpacks around Milan for many hours.

The common areas are nice. Convenient to have the cafe on the 2nd floor, breakfast is included! The room was a nice size and ours had a bathroom in the room. Clean, seem like it was newly redone. The location was nice not to far from the park and the Duomo.
