I have stayed in hostels before and not been bothered by the traffic noise but the insulation in this Hotel was so bad and it was so close to the main streets that I couldn't sleep at all after 6am. However, if you can sleep through EXCESSIVE noise and need to catch an early or late train from Milan Central Station the location is excellent. It is literally right across the road from the station. It is also very clean and I was impressed by the security measures.


Stuff was nice. The single room was like "ok", not really comfortable but ok. The only real problem: you hear everything from the street, people talking, cars etc. The windows seem not to be isolated, unfortunetely. Beside of that it's ok, but you shouldn't expect too much.

For any travelers who don't want to sleep in the airport before an early flight, this hostel is perfect! The people at the check-in desk are there all night, so you can come as late and leave as early as you need to. It was a very pleasant experience and a good place to rest before an early flight and a long day of traveling! It's literally right next to the train station in Milan which is great since it's so close to the bus terminal that goes to the airports.

Super convenient to the train station. There are multiple levels of security in the building. And the man working the all night shift was super nice. There isn't really anything else in the area if you're looking for even something mellow. I just wanted a simple glass of wine, I was given a bottle and a Dixie cup and shooed out of a nearby restaurant.


The rooms were a bit small, and the shower did not work properly, when I told the reception they send a guy which it repaired it with sale tape I was not impressed about it . The hairdryer was very old and malfunction it needed to be changed.


This is a good place to sleep if you're only interested in getting a good night's sleep before catching a train. If you wanted to see the city, there are probably better places that are more social and interesting. Good for what it is, but don't expect much. Some creepy men were hanging outside at night, so be safe


Great location, nice staff.


If you are looking for a place to step by in The evening to get The train in The ealry morning this is the place. Its a few steps to The station but The rooms are very standard, nothing special. Must be careful walking around The station in the evening.


Unfortunately, the supervisors who are from China, do not operate but deal.


I had to book a single room very last minute after my flight got cancelled and I ended up having to travel through Milan instead of Bologna. Overall the main reason for choosing this place is location. Otherwise the place is pretty average. TO KNOW: -The guy doesn't speak much English, the woman does. -You get towels -ONLY ONE SHARED BATHROOM -There was a sink in the room -You can get a free map at reception instead of having to buy one. Just ask.


Fine hostel for what was needed. Right by station, clean, everything you need. Not great place to meet people. Kind staff.


As a solo adult traveler, I'm looking for simple, clean, quiet accomodation w/as much privacy as possible w/o paying for it. I found this here. Staff all extremely welcoming/helpful regardless of language skill which was no problem at all. Checked in late night. Held bags all day for me. Rooms big enough w/extra sink right in the room for morning efforts. English tv. Would recommend for a traveller looking for a quality rest on the go. Not a party hostel. Like a basic hotel just w/more beds.


This hostel is very near to Milan Main station. Lot of disturbance. I stayed there for one night. Would recommended who ever is willing to stay not more than 1 night.


Very cozy hotel, back to time elevator, receptions speak multi-language, clean and convenient.


Friendly staff, no English spoken. Private Room with En-Suite, towels and one use soap/shampoo each morning. If room is at back of the building you get a small balcony. 24 Hour reception, bar and vendor fridge. Also a few tables and a sofa. Nothing special, would not advise for wanting to explore the city, as it is a minimum of half an hour walk from museums, monuments etc. Would definitely advise if using for a one night stay before a train.


A nice cozy hostel and a perfect place to stop if you have to catch a train!


This hostel was good for a night right next to the station and my room was very clean. Few staff and I found only one could speak good English and was very helpful overall a good stay but would not recommend for more than 2 nights


Its OK but nothing more, staff are nice and the location is good for late\early arrivals or departures from central station. I didn't sleep much because the room I was in was right next to a busy road with no real sound proofing. Also it's not great value especially when the €2 a night city tax is added.
