Best hostel staff I have ever met - everybody is friendly and helpful. Metro is very convenient and 24hr day pass is worth it. I was in 2 different rms - wifi did not work in one of them (in the adjoining building). Nice atmosphere, but music was always loud, hard to get work done if wifi didn't work and you needed to go to common area. One of the bathrooms (for rm #2) needs some hooks to hang up clothes, etc. Room and day lockers will not fit larger luggage. Otherwise, thanks for a great stay!


Very clean rooms and bathrooms! Shower was hot and great pressure. Staff were always helpful and breakfast had a lot of variety. It's not in the city centre but it's easy enough to get to from central station. The only downside I can think of is that it wasn't very social you had to really make a effort to meet new people. Maybe if you guys did a social night a couple times a week?

Great location, close to metro and train station. The dorm was super clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The staff was always friendly and helpful! Thanks a lot!


Great place to stay! It's really close to the subway so it's easy to get around Milan. The staff was very helpful and the wifi worked wonderfully!


Beds were comfy, but the walls were paper thin so you could hear everything! we had a room of loud children next to us which was annoying. Showers were clean. Staff were very happy and friendly but every time we asked a question the one guy never seem to understand what we were on about. Could only use the kitchen after 3 which we didnt like. Wifi was ok but i downloaded something which should of taken 10 mins tops but it took over 4 hours here. Good access to metro and train station. Ok stay.


Three reasons: 1) The "free" computer is a Mac machine with a windows keyboard. Makes it a pain to work on it. Makes you wonder if it is done so to reduce usage. Ends up consuming a lot of time. 2) The staff was the reason i booked this hostel. They are professional nonetheless, but the warmth is missing. 3) I had flight from Linate and they suggested that I take bus from termini. Surprisingly, the bus stops at Lambrate FS(3mins walk from hostel). This is so not done. was he listening?

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comment, I'm very sorry of what happened. 1) The computer is not the latest generation (sorry) 2) The bus that kids have recommended, at a cost of Euro 1.50. The cost of the bus which she says has cost Euro 5.00. The boy made a mistake in good faith. 3) The name Colours, means International. I thank you for having stayed with us, your comments will help us improve. Thanks again for your comments. Best regards Umberto Ciribuchi the Holder


Best place to stay in Milan. The staff is amazing, facilities are nice and clean. Good location with an underground station a few meters away. Really recommended.


Internet shuts off at night, which is day in USA. This was bad. Also, the site advertised one bed left, but there were 6 beds empty besides mine.


It was a little confusing getting from the rooms to the common areas. You have to get out of the building and then go back in in the main entrance


It was quite noisy at night. People were talking loud in the hallway and in front of the building.


nice breakfast included with the rate which is very cheap


Very nice hostel, rooms were quite big for 6 beds and had ensuite bathroom which was nice. Rooms were very clean and hostel overall was in great condition. Breakfast in the morning was just bread and croissants and coffee, but free so I can´t complain. Definitely would recommend to stay here! Nothing too special, but cheap and good location.


The hostel was very nice and the staff very helpful. I would stay again if I go back to Milan again. The only thing that I would say is that the walls were a bit thin, and sometimes you could hear the people outside the room. I would definitely recommend it for your stay in Milan. Ideal for couples or friends.

Great hostel! The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Good kitchen, wifi was fast, good couches and social area. Really big room and so clean!


good location, good service, near metro station and supermarket. The breakfast is good. All the things are fine.


Good hostel. It lacked atmosphere but I had a pleasant stay. Staff very helpful and kind. It has a nice common area and it is very close to the underground station. Recommended.


Great hostel, easy walk from the metro stop and great and cheap pizzerias close by. Hot water, clean sheets, very capable and friendly staff. Unfortunately I was just in Milan overnight between a long train ride from Hungary to France but my tenure at Hostel Colours was pleasant and well worth the money. The breakfast is decent as well. Would stay again!


The hostel was easy to get to and relatively nice. However, when we got there the person on staff tried to put us in a full room. Additionally, wifi in the rooms is awful and half of the hostel is in a different building which you have to walk outside to get to after 11:30pm. All of the common areas close after midnight, so it is difficult to use wifi/hang out anywhere other then your room.


Wonky wifi in the bedrooms but great breakfast!
