Wellcoming and basic accomodation for a night staying. There is connection with the centre by bus. Kind staff and clean rooms.

The linens were dirty and the hot water did not work. There is no kitchen and also no lockers


Words can't describe how much this hotel is good value for money in Milan! Me and my friends loved it. It was clean, single beds meant no bunks. And more importantly the staff we incredibly helpful, nice and friendly! The location was perfect, 10 mins from city and a bus that goes straight to central station and another bus straight to the city centre. Thank you Hotel Medea we will be back for sure :)

This place was very easy to find from the train station. The staff are helpful if you ask them, otherwise they keep to themselves. It was always kept clean not a great atmosphere no common room or anything to meet people. There are no lockers for important items.


Hello! I had a great time at your hostel and I will come back when I have the chance. Although, may I suggest that you add lockers or safes to the rooms? Grazie mille!


Excellent breakfast. Good response to airport pickup. Please include pickup.instruction for the airport in the website.


The guy there speaks no English and understands nothing!

Hotel Medea was a good budget option and there were no obvious problems with it, but I want to draw attention to other travelers that it's pretty far out of the the center of Milan, in a residential district on the second floor of an Apartment building, a good walk away from the Metro (although the bus and tram are closer). Pretty barebones, the bed I slept in not very comfortable, and there were some ants (mainly my fault as I left some cheese on the floor), but staff friendly. An OK stay!


Only one key for the rooms, which the receptionist always has - you can't lock the door at night etc. The guests in my room had all booked a 4 bed dorm and there were 5 beds with 5 guests. At least they weren't bunks. They charge 5 Euros a night for air-conditioning! It was really hot and after quite some arguing they gave it to us for free due to the extra person in the room, which they were unapologetic for. It's far from the centre but reachable with buses. In a quiet neighbourhood and cheap.


It was my fourth stay in Milan and this hotel was the best. Even though the staff did not speak perfect English, they were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and furnished enough as well as the bathroom. The air condition did not work so we had to have the window open and there was a noise from the outside. We also heared slamming of the door and sometimes the phone ring. The location was ok. I would recommend this hotel, it is a good value for money even if there were some minuses :).


This hostel is easy to get to from the train station if you know what you're doing. The bus stop is behind the train station, which can be hard to find so look it up beforehand. The location is not ideal, but okay to get to the center by transportation. The staff was very friendly even though I spoke no Italian. There are no lockers, so be prepared to have another way to secure your things. No common room either, but the bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, and its a good stay for the price.


There is only one key per dorm, and it needs to be returned to the front desk once dorm door is unlocked. Door also remains unlocked when you're inside, so anyone could walk in while you're changing or sleeping. No lockers and no common area. Pros: free wifi, nice neighbourhood, nice 40 min walk to city centre or you can easily bus.
