They forget about our booking made 6 months in advance and we were placed at the first night on a room at the basement used by the family who take care of the hotel. The emergency phone installed on our room (that was supposed to be used by the owners to answer guest, because that was their room) ringed 3 times and the plumbing made noise all night long every time someone flush the toilet at the hotel! At the second nigh we went to the room, that was not much better than the basement!

It was generally ok. Nothing stood out and nothing was particularly bad. It was a bit far far from the city centre (30+min walk) but it wasn't too big a deal as there was a subway (not the metro) fairly close by.

Very nice man (the owner) in the reception, waited for us up to 2 a.m. to check-in. Bathroom a little small, and breakfast not included in the price, but he gave me water and breakfast for free the last day (I wasn't hosted there, only my parents). It was the best option in the city for us!

Good location / set up considering we were on exchange at politecnico di milano and were looking for apartments to rent in the area.

Paying 3 euros for the breakfast was a little steep, but I loved the family owned atmosphere, and the tip for dinner at Blender Bar was superb.

I stayed here just one night before flying from Linate. It's very convenient. It's a little bit hard to find but it's OK. I was surprised the guy at the reception was very helpful, that was a plus. I didn't have the chance to have breakfast so I cannot comment on that. Good for a night because it's far from the city center and public transport as I was in Milan a week before flying back.

The location was very good. Although it wasn't really in the centre, it was really easy to get there by bus, and the hostel was close to the station. The staff don't speak English very well, but they were always very helpful. Besides, the facilities were just like new. I would definitely stay there again.

A budget hotel, to be certain -- the staff was nice and the bathroom was fine. Bed was not great. The hotel is (as one can see) not at all in the city center, although the buses allow you to get there fairly quickly. I must note that Milano is EXTREMELY difficult to navigate as a non-local -- public maps are hard to come by. The hotel / Milano was extremely hot, and the walls are paper-thin--one of the hottest/loudest nights of my life. Internet worked fine and I didn't have to give up my key.

We spent here 4 nights. The bathroom was very small, and from the staff only 1 person speaks english, but they are all very kind. The hotel is near to the city center, we used the suburban train + metro from Dateo (its nearer than Piola), you can reach every part of the city very fast. Check-in time from 1 pm. We reached the hotel at 10 am, so we had to wait to check in. It is a good place to stay for a few days.

Stuff was friendly yet the guy didn't speak english well and when he wasn't around his girlfriend would simply reply in Italian. There was no lift despite the fact that it's a five storey building and not a hostel... Worst bit for us was that there was no wi-fi available in the rooms and the internet quality at the reception was very poor (disconnections, slow etc.)

The hotel was OK. Actually it was very clean, the room was very tidy and we had no problems. The only problem is that it was very very very noisy. Let me explain: the stairs are small and every rumor is amplified in the whole building, and, around 5 AM, a woman started screaming with a man in the stairs, and then in the room, for a total of about 1 hour, which was actually very annoying as we wanted to take some rest. Apart from that everything was OK.

Is really far from the center city and the metro station. There is a bus stop near, it helps a little.
