The place is pretty bad and way too expensive. My first night I had a pillow and blanket but my second night they were gone. I went to tell the guy and he nonchalantly informed me that they were very full and had none left, they had to give mine away. He told me there was nothing he could do. I thought he was joking at first but he wasn't. I wonder what that conversation looked like when they chose to give away my pillow and blanket to someone new. so ya, I had a cold night with no pillow.

Quite expensive for what you get and the area you are in. I arrived at 9pm and did not feel safe at all trying to find the hostel, I also thought the instructions were not as clear as they could have been to find it. Quite far out of the city although a metro stop is right nearby, it can add up for all the metro rides.
Only stayed one night but was pretty impressed. Dorms were clean, had a power point for each bed and good lockers. The kitchen and "hang out" area were pretty cool to. The only thing was the direction they give on hostel world from the train station are terrible!!!!!!! It is only 5min from the train but do yourself a favour and have a map don't rely on there directions.
Internet doest work in the room - for me this is a negative point
One of the shower head was broken. Need hangers in the shower rooms.
Nice place to stay and meet new people. Bit difficult to find though
The hostel is good. With the directions to get there you'll find it without any problems. It is near thw subway in a peaceful street. If you take the subway you'll get to the center very easily. It includes a good breakfast and staff is very nice and helpfull. The place is clean and rooms are very comfortable.
I really liked the common area and the breakfast - great variety for a hostel breakfast. We only stayed one night, but it appeared to be well run. The rooms were decently sized and we got a good night's sleep.
Overall a great place to stay. The hostel was almost fully booked in mid-November, which speaks to the need for more hostels in northern Italy! Good location just a block or so from the metro. Nice bar area, even if it felt a little empty at times. Only little complaint is that they were a little stingy about making change and enforced a credit card minimum that I don't remember seeing Hostelworld... but really that's a minor complaint. Would definitely come back.
great all-round place to stay. hadn't really heard or read anything good about hostels in milan but this one is definitely somewhere i'd recommend to anyone.
Only stayed here for a night but really appreciated how calm and helpful the night guy (03/10) was, showing me to my room and explaining areas of the hostel to me, as well as helping me with the lockers. It would be great if they had a bit more information about Milan and it was a bit annoying (more so for the people in my room) having to make the bed at 2 in the morning as I arrived late.
The common areas are nice but the general condition of our room was not. The staff who received us (chinese guy) was not so welcoming. Others were ok. Rooms do not have Wi-Fi coverage. Overall, it just feels rather expensive. It wasn't that bad, but the hostel doesn't deserve the 80% rating it has. Tourist tax was payed in cash; no receipt was given and there is no indication of it on the invoice. http://goo.gl/wJSZNj
The staff were so friendly and helpful and the atmosphere of the hostel was great made some great friends. and enjoyed my stay here throughly.
In all of the hostels I have stayed , this has the most disappointing breakfast with no warm toast or at least a working toaster to heat up the bread. Coffee was not hot. Kettle does not seem clean even though I tried to clean it. Noise outside of our 2-pax double room was unpleasant due to the room being located on ground floor, and people dragged their luggage down the steps and talked loudly. Air con was broken so we had to open the windows, causing mosquitoes to disturb our sleep.
No air conditioner in the room, is too hot and it smells. No space for you things in the room and the breakfast is not good. I wouldn't go back and don't recommend it.
very nice hostel. wifi just downstairs, room are nice and clean, ensuite. breakfast ok. staff nice. would stay there again.
Nice place. Close to the metro and easy to get around by metro from here.
The hostel was clean and well maintained. They had a live music performance while I was there, very nice! The morning staff, specifically Vicenzo, was extremely helpful and kind. He was always willing to provide loads of good information, and had a great attitude. The night staff could use a bit of an attitude adjustment as he was incredibly unfriendly, never smiled and was not very forthcoming in answering questions. Other than that, I think it's a good hostel.
I stayed in this hostel while searching for an apartment and it was very pleasant, the staff is all very kind and nice, they always put on the tv the football matches that I wanted to see, and they even allowed me to go another day after I checked out for internet as I was in a need, thanks for all your help people from hostel colours!!!
The hostel is located a bit far from the centre. But you can reach by metro and a little bit walk. That's OK. And supermarkets are nearby. Staff are very friendly. Room is clean and comfortable.
