Great staff - especially in the restaurant opposite and good bathroom for the price but our twin room was quite unclean and had mould and damp in the walls. It's quite far from the city centre, which is understandable for the price, so it's best to spend a whole day visiting attractions. Overall good if you want a cheap stay in Milan.


It was average, in every respect. Except that they served good breakfast, and the person at the reception is really helpful and nice. The restaurant attached to the hostel was very poor, and charged exorbitant prices.


for us, the hostel was hard to find (it's some where in the museum... or some government place...).

I only stayed here for one night. It´s kind of far from the city center but I didn´t mind the train ride. The staff was very, very helpful. The only downside was that the bed was quite worn out. Other than that, it´s a great value for your money, if you don´t mind the train ride.


Excellent hostel. 10 points.


This is a hostel inside a center or college, quite far from the city, the wifi didn't work at all, but there is a quite hostel and I like it!


Yes, it is not a hostel for meeting people, but i do enjoy the quietness there, kitchen facilities are amazing, you can use not just the facilities but the oil and sause, staff are really friend and helpful, clear instruction and great suggestion for short term travelling in milano.


This place is 10 train stops from Duomo (main city centre), which is too far in my opinion (at least 25minutes); however pretty close to the station. No atmosphere here, hardly anyone else around to make friends (if you're travelling solo). The place is clean which is good, the bed is not comfortable


This hostel was somewhat hard to find, but other than that it was a really great place. It was calm, surrounded by lots of greenery, community protected by a huge wall, located in an area of town that is local, not too touristy. The bathroom was very clean, fresh environment overall-maybe all the plants, and the kitchen and dinning room has everything you could need to cook youself a meal (just supply the food, there is a market close). Also, very cool local outdoor market on Saturdays closeby

pro: its not too far from the metro station, you can park your car for free inside the gates, the beds were comfy. contra: there was no hostel-atmosphere at all, there were no signs to find the hostel in this big ''clinic-kind-of-area'', we had to climb over the main-gates of this clinic-thing when we came home at night, which is about 3.5 meters high and kind of dangerous to climb. well at least we had a place to sleep at. i guess... we were two guys (both 22yrs) for one night in milano.


Definitely I not recommend this "hostel" for anyone. First, I felt I was alone in the hostel, looked like a haunted place (the hostel is within a park / museum, that was psiquiatro hospital in the past). This "hostel" is super poorly located (you can't find the hostel on the map available at the airport), and the access to the subway and restaurants is not good neither. The water of shower is cold and has no lockers in the rooms. Definitely do not recommend this hostel.


Quirky hostel in middle of hospital complex and very convenient for metro €1.5 on direct line to Milan Duomo. Good clear instructions from Turin-Venice motorway.Not so clear from entrance gate of hospital...need to ask gatekeeper.


Cold shower. Loud neighbors. No time for complaint.

The hostel is located inside a hospital compound. and quite far from the city center (6 metro stations). The staff was OK when we checked in, but after that they were nowhere to be found. We had no heat during the night, and it was quite cold. We had to use 3 to 4 blankets. Only some showers had hot water. Otherwise the value for money is OK. We were a group of 9 people and we stayed there in October.


The staff was fantastic and so helpful. The location is so close to the metro. The only area of improvement I saw is that the wifi doesn't really work in the rooms are barely works in the common area.


I really like this place and if i get the chance to stay in milan again is ostell olina the first adress to call. The staff was really nice and helped any time they could. But the most important thing is, it is clean! never had a hostel as clean as olinda. the bathrooms really nice build up, everthing works and again very very clean.

Really nice hostel with spacious, comfortable rooms and a big, well-equipped kitchen. Located quite far from city centre but in a very quiet, green part of Milan. Only downside was the lockers, which you'd need some kind of miniature lock for.


Hostel is well out of the main tourist area of Milan. It's not easy to find as it is in an old hospital complex and not very well sign posted. The staff were not always friendly and we couldn't leave food in the communal kitchen because it would get eaten. We did not feel welcome in the hostel.

Dear Catherine, the hostel is just 15 minutes away from the city center (10 stops of underground). I'm sorry that you didn't leave your stuff in our fridge, if you have put the name noone would have touched your food. I hope to see you again.


This is a hostel to avoid. It is located miles away from the centre of town and is hidden away in some old remote hospital grounds. The service from all the staff was slow, poor and unhelpful. The rooms are very basic and get incredibly hot during the night. During our stay in the peak summer we saw only one other guest and meant the hostel was incredibly quiet and almost quite spooky. If you have come to Milan to enjoy the city and take in the atmosphere steer clear of this place.
