A nice hotel in about five-ten minutes walk from the metro station. Easy to find. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms. And it was much cheaper than most of the other hotels so close to the centre. The only downside was that there were not toilets in the rooms though there was a shower, thetre are two big toilets in the hotel. So my overall impression of the hotel was absolutely positive.

There was no kitchen and location was a bit sketchy at night, but nothing out of the ordinary. There was a slight problem with a second booking but the staff was very helpful in solving it. Overall I think it was a very good value for money, except for the fact of the kitchen.


I don't regret choosing this hostel. Stayed 3 nights there and everything was fine: staff, location, room access and facilities. No other added fees, except for the tourist tax of 2 euros. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and reasonable place to sleep during a short stay in Milan.

Affordable and reliable place, for people who are not looking for debauchery at all, that's a right place.


It is a very nice place to stay ! It is near thw subway in a peaceful street. If you take the subway you'll get to the center very easily. This place is Very conviencene with a supermarket, it is very useful to have a convenient supermarket nearby. Really enjoyed my stay here, staff helpful and a great common area which made meeting people easy. The room itself is basic but does the job.The place is very clean and rooms are very comfortable and includes free-wifi and Tv.

The location is nce and helpful,just a few minuts walk from the metro2 Lambrate,and there is also a little train station.The hotel is without breakfast,but you can find a lot of bars and restaurants nearby.

It has helpful staff. Rooms were clean+. But it's location is really very bad i think. And also neighborhood could be very dangerous at some time. It has no common area like kitchen or resting room. Maybe for Italy the price is good but i dont know i think it is little expensive for kind a bad/dangerous location. If you want to sleep in a clean bed and nomore it is ok.
