The four-bed dorm room was quiite nice with the ensuite bathroom and huge lockers for each person. They could use bigger blankets or heating in the room because it was too cold. The breakfast was quite simple with only a criossant and terrible machine coffee but better than nothing. The ´shop´ at reception is wildly overpriced, but the location was decent. A close walk to the centre although not much right by the hostel.
20 euro deposit(refundable)(PER PERSON) are needed for bed sheets, pillow cases and blankets. You will need to make your bed despite staying in private ensuite. Breakfast was just merely a croissant per person but there are selection of drinks in the 1st floor. Kitchen is provided but 3 euros is needed if you want to purchase a set of kitchen cutlery(spoon, fork, knife). Not even a cutting knife and board was found. And the window shades in my toilet room cannot be closed. Imagine that!
Rooms are very modern and comfortable, great hostel!
The hostel was awesome! At least for two people travelling. The door to the bath couldn’t be looked so alone I would have felt a little insecure about that. And who cares about a deposit of 20 € if you’re getting it back in the end? The breakfast isn’t much but other hostels might even let you pay money for a single croissant and a hot drink. We were very happy to have chosen this hostel.
my room was a little cold but definitely good value for money, very clean and good wifi connection
Nice place to stay for a night or few days. Collective rooms well organised, but the heater was too much noisy. I prefered to let it off. Individual wardrobes and no surprises with extra taxes during the check-in.
Good place, in the center. But the staff is not very nice, we had to wait one hour before checking. You have to pay a deposit of twenty euros each. If you want to let your luggage, you have to pay an extra 4e. Actually, you have to pay for everything. In the bathroom, there is no soap for hands. But there are free lockers with plugs inside, which is nice.
The best stay, the breakfast was a huge croissant with good coffee, rooms were very well heated and the hot water was really hot!
The location is nice. In the dorm, it's risky for people to sleep on the top to fall down as there's no fench. It's the only hostel that charge us for baggage storage. (4 euros each regardless of the baggage size). It's kinda disappointed because their check-in time is 2 pm! (That's quite late) and check-out time is 10 am. :(
+: First impression when I got in, I felt like I was in a student residence! The hostel was nice and cosy, well situated with friendly staff. I also appreciated the commonkitchen and the laptop free of use. -: Some details such as a broken lamp in the room, no soap in the bathroom (ensuite) and the charge for living the luggages in case of a late departure. I totally recommende it! Misc: A croissant and hot drinκs for breakfast. A 20€ deposit is asked for linen (returned at check out).
The staff is rude, they kept us waiting 15 minutes while chatting to eachother. They asked for a 40 euro deposit for the sheets, although I didn't see such deposit marked on the site. Then they sent me to change my notes somewhere outside (a 50 euro note, not a 500!) because they didn't have a change. I'm definitely not going back there.
Very good location! Near to Historic places and the beautiful Duomo. The bedroom is really good! I staed in a 8 mix bed and is like more a 3 bed because they are in different rooms. The breakfast is only a croissant and a hot drink by machine. Not so good.
I disliked how there was a charge for leaving your luggage while you were waiting to get into your room. The man at the front desk wasn't friendly and every time you left the building you had to leave your keys at the front.
It was very nice to have a fridge in the room, a huge locker for the bags and luggage and the beds were good too. Nice breakfast. The staff in the evening was very friendly but the woman was a little bit rude. In the toilet should be soap to wash the hands and some paper towels to dry them. In front of the shower should be a towel or a plastic mat to stand on after showering, the whole bad was a mess, water everywhere... Close to the bed should be a place to hang up the jacket or other clothes.
A good place to sleep. Didn't feel completely safe, but that's a hard requirement to fill as I am a young female
Just a little idea: breakfast should include something else,that'd be perfect! :)
PAY ATTENTION. We reserved four beds three months before and when arrived they did not have space for us: OVERBOOKING. We waited more than an hour and finally the find a place for us in another hostel, on the other side of Milan. We moved on our own with the metro from a place to another at 11:30 pm, no one said sorry, no discount was made.
Loved this hostel! Was in an 8 bed dorm but it is split into sections so felt like I only shared with 2 others. Single beds & a bathroom for each trio! Kitchen was well stocked, lobby area is cool. Easy 20min walk to Duomo & also to train station, 5min to supermarket. Breakfast was what they stated - light but appreciated all the same. One and only down point was squashed mosquitoes on the wall near my bed on arrival. But this quickly got cleaned when I mentioned it. Definitely consider staying!
