Men's bathroom is really something awful, my room didn't lock proproperly and my bed was broken


The location was about 5 minutes from the train station then about a 15 minute ride into town. The neighborhood was pretty nice although you could see some prostitutes hanging about. The security at the facility was decent. You could lock up your stuff in lockers, and if you didn't get the right one you were more at risk of getting your stuff taken. The toilets were alright, although I'd do your number two elsewhere. Overall it was an average facility, and only a good bed for the night.


Reserved a two bed private with a shared bathroom. They messed up my booking so they gave me a 4 bed with a private bathroom.

Place is not so bad, but everything is obsolete. I had problems with wifi all the time. But staff is really nice and helpfull.


I felt as if they never had enough staff to help everyone. I went down to ask about the wifi code and I got a very rude response from someone working the night shift. There was a very nice Italian man in the day for check out, but other than that I wasn't pleased with the service. The rooms only have one outlet so you have fight others to charge your phones and the balconies are connected to other room, so it would be easy to have an all female dorm with men peeking in. The showers were clean.


The area was not the nicest. Prostitutes out at night and I watched a guy with blood dripping from his mouth get chased by a group of guys. Shower was shared by men and women. Could make it uncomfortable for a female. The ones that were there seemed to fix themselves in front of the mirror rather than take a shower. Only one staff member was very unhelpful when you had a question about something and was quite pricky about it. No codes for wifi at the desk. He told you to go find one.

Clean room and shower, good breakfast.


We were very fortunate to find two free beds in this hostel on the day of our arrival in Milan, since the prices for accommodation were unbelievably high there in those days. But not only price was the good thing about our stay, also basic continental breakfast was completely ok, the room was a regular hostel room with lockers and common bathroom was clean. We stayed two nights more. The staff was actually friendly even at late night hours, especially the maintenance worker was very helpful.

The hostel staff was really welcoming and helpful. Good location, 5min walking from the QT8 metro station M1 and really handy if you need to get to Rho/Fiera di Rho/Expo. Also connected to city center with night buses NM1 and 90/91. Another good point, simple breakfast is included. It's a bit old fashioned, some renovations could make the hostel way nicer and cosy, but all HI look like this. And more plugs for electricity will be useful in the 6-bed dormitories, there's only one per room.


Time to renovate the toilets/showers.


By far the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. It looks like a juvenile detention facility. The staff were rude and slow, there was less than zero atmosphere and very little security. The location was terrible. No charging outlets in the room. Stay anywhere else... literally anywhere.


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
