Typical youth hostel, the whole interior a bit old, but working. Clean rooms, beds and lockers with a padlock provided. Close to the metro, approx. 15 min to EXPO and 15 min to city centre. Standard breakfast. Staff is not superfriendly, but tries to help you.


It was very noisy with 100 french school students slamming doors and yelling. I felt like something more could have been done to designate their own space rather than disperse them in the dorms between other guests. They kept running into every room regardless of which guests were staying there. Some of the bunks were broken in the slats (under mattress) which i think is unacceptable give then the price pf the bed for the night


The bathrooms were so filthy. Mold all over the ceilings and the toilets smelled like poop every time. The floors were always wet in the bathroom. The bedrooms weren't bad, but I guess that's what you get for 22 euro per night. Any the Wi-Fi was very inconsistent. Definitely spend the extra little bit of money for another hostel..

Everything was fine about this place. The only problem was the smell of the room! They had used some sort of chemical thing for cleaning which had really strong smell! It was all over the room! It wasn't a bad smell but it was scary to know you are inhaling so much chemical!


It's hatd to meed people at the hostel because it doesn't have a bar. Location is average but the staff was nice and kind.


Large hostel well run, sheets were freshly cleaned and a padlock was provided to lock away valuables. It wasn't far from the metro and the breakfast provided was good.


Really near of the Bus station and also to the line M1 of the Metro, which you can use to go to the castle or the Duomo. But it was a little hard to find because now the entry is in the back of the building and there is just one poster that indicates it. I had to search for it in google maps.

Far of the center, without atmosphere, but clean and juste for a couple of nigths


Somewhat outside the city centre but right next to the metro station and next to a park with a fitness trail. Check in and service were very slow but the staff were overall friendly. Rooms were basic, as you'd expect for the price, but big lockers in the corridor with padlocks provided were a big bonus. Good showers and a large free breakfast made for a good hostel. Only downside was a lot of noise in the corridors at night until late, which is only an issue if you like to sleep earlyish like me


The administrative people are nice, but the hostel facilities look old and unattractive. You could pay the same for a better hostel with better facilities. It comes with breakfast, which is decent and good.


The best thing about this place was one staff member while we stayed - I'm not sure of his name, but he was very helpful and went out of his way to help me get some hot water I needed for medicine!! It's a bit far out but a cheap taxi ride or even cheaper (but longer) metro ride into the centre and it's nice and spacious and our room had a balcony! Had a lovely time! Thanks :)


Breafkeast should start a little bit earlier, as the hostel is often chosen for his location near the bus station and most of the bus leave at the time the breakfeast start


It´s a big youth hostel with average facilities. Nevertheless the rooms are calm and you have plenty space in the lockers for your luggage. Unfortunately the showers were only cold and there was no electricity at breakfast. So they couldn´t offer hot water or coffee.


Good place for young people... Good chillin atmosfere Quite good if u wanna go to the expo A bit far from the center


Very basic Hostel, no surprise for that price. Locker are in corridor!, no Air Condition or even Fan. When you are in Bathroom you feel yoursel like in Military Service.


It was a really nice hostel in general, nice Air conditioner, room with very big space, we even have balcon to dry our clothes. Common room is really nice and comfortable. The only exception is that they didn't check and clean the bed which checked out before we come. The person who used the bed before apparently left her sheet just like that without putting it outside, so it is clear that it was not cleaned before.


The worst hostel I have ever stayed at. Staff were unbelievably unprofessional. No credit card option because the machine broke (and apparently had been broken for quite some time before I stayed). It is mosquito mansion. Rooms unbearably hot at 43c without a fan, overgrowth on the Windows so the rooms are dark. Beds feel as though they will collapse and or the top sleeper will pull it over while attempting to get into bed. toilets & showers have ancient very noisey plumbing.


It took like 40mins to an 1 hr to check in, staff very slow. Location close for those coming by a bus to Milan. No mirrors in the girls bathroom. Could do with a fan or air con in room. Far from the centre. No atmosphere.


With this hostel, you do get what you pay for. its clean and if your staying for anymore than two nights its ok. The area its in didn't feel necessarily safe as a traveller, however the city centre is easily accessible with a 5min to metro. Its also good that there is lockers that you can keep your stuff in 24/7. However, the security of the building is bad, anyone can access the showers and hostel, also only 1 plug socket for 6 people. Also ZERO atmosphere, not good for solo travellers.


Very positive side is breakfast and lockers for your luggage. It was very hot in the rooms (no AC) and bathrooms are not very clean.
