The stay was very comfortable. The staff was very sweet and organised. The rooms and the Hostel was very clean, hygienic and secure. Totally worth the price.


It was comfortable and clean. The decor was nice and the staff were friendly. It was close to the supermarket and public transport but very far from the center. They had weird hours allowed for cooking which is difficult if you are from a culture that eats earlier. I think those restrictions show lack of consideration for your travelers. They could have better Wi-Fi.


One of the best placez I've ever stayed! The staff is amazing and building itself is very confortable and charming. I would recommend it completely. See you next time, guys.


Pretty good and tidy place for a one night stop over, close to shops and transport. Office lady is friendly and wiling to help out. Would stay again only set back is two bathrooms but thats not so bad.


The staff was nice and friendly. However, the overall atmosphere was missing. Ice cold water in the morning and no toilet paper.


We had a very good stay! Although it would be nice to have more than just one bathroom for all the rooms together.

It is a nice hostel at a very good price, with a comfortable room, a decent kitchen, and a back yard. Although it is not exactly close to center, it is served well by a tram and two metro stops. And it is located in a real Milano neighborhood, not a tourist area.


located closed enough from milan lampugnano, very helpfull and honest staff, no free wifi, toilet average


The hostel is very far away from everything that happens in the city, and although there is a metro 10min walking, during the night the neighbourhood was very quiet and dark. No staff during the night. The common areas are small, so there is not many space to meet other guests. The bathroom gets very wet and you have to clean it with a mop after, many guests don't do it and its a mess. Toilet paper was over fast and not replaced enough. The staff was practical but boring.


Lovely hostel with lovely staff. Comfy beds and spacious rooms. Clean and well kept. Perfect for our one night stay. Could only fault the lack of common area during winter (nice backyard for summer)

Dear Madeleine, Thank you for your review,we are glad that you felt well,we also wait for you next time in the summer when you can enjoy the backyard Best regards, Manuela,staff


The facilities are good, the rooms are really clean with a lot space and storage places. The hostel is far from the citycent The staff is nice and friendly, however the place has some difficult policies: the kitchen is close between 11pm and 730am, so if you have to leave early in the morning you can not cook your breakfast or even use the microwave. The hostel should change the keys for cards, when people arrive late it is too noisy the key. The hostel does not have maps of the city.

Dear Maria, Thank you for your review,we try to do the best for our guests,the kitchen and the reception is closing during the night,we anounce the guest about that so they can be prepared if they need an early breakfast,or a late meal,sorry if we didn't had maps at that moment,anyway we give informations about locations,tranportations and anything else somebody is intrested in. Best regards, Manuela,staff


kitchen time limit is really a matter for different cultures people, especially you can not cook breakfast before 7:30 am and dinner before 7 pm. Btw, there is no cattle for hot water we you get home late, of course stove doesn't work out off cooking time.

Dear Luis Thank you for your review,we are glad that you enjoy your staying here Best regards, Manuela,staff


This is a hostel just to stay a couple of nights. It has all the things you need and its very clean. At the same time is really far away from the city centre and the atmosphere is a little bit low. But again, for a couple of nughts its fine.


Very nice hostel! a bit far from the city center but still in a nice place. Recommended ;)


Staff were fantastic, place is spotless, and bedding lovely but hostel is a loooong way from city center so who would want to stay there? Also bathroom floor is always wet because shower curtains don't work and mop provided not used by all guests and use of kitchen stove has restricted hours.


I was not fond of the location, no near by food. They also assign your bunk, not just your room. I was not pleased, considering or room want full and I am to tall for the bottom bunk. Or shower room was kind of Jerry-rigged to try and not let water out but people don't read the signs and water spills every where. The people in my room were nice.


Rooms were very plain, but clean and bunks were okay.. You have to ask to get forks/knives, but they are there. Very simple kitchen ware + a gas stove, and prety small tables - allmost too little for 2 people to have a meal at the same time. Staff was very helpful. Value for money was good, I'd stay here again if visiting Milan on budget.

We arrived at a time outside of check in hours but the girl still answered the door and allowed us to store luggage until check in time. rooms spacious, bathroom clean.. 400m stroll to the metro (which in our case happened to be during a weekend market), so very accessible.
