Was happy to stay here

Considering the low prices this hostel is of course basic but okay. Half an hour out of the centre of Milan but easily reachable by metro, so this wasn't a problem. The staff is really friendly, the breakfast is ok and there are enough showers that are clean enough. My main complain is that there is no aircon in the dorms, while Milan is a very hot and unpleasantly humid city. Besides that, there was only one power socket in our dorm and the wifi connection wasn't so good most of the time.

Typical YHI hostel, big, lots of rooms, but definitely not up to date. Not enough plugs for electronics in rooms (but you can charge in lobby, don't worry) and a weird wifi policy with different speeds and passwords you need for every bit of data. Reception was very nice, if a bit slow, and upgraded me after I was put in a six bed room that only had five beds after all... Breakfast was awesome and I talked to a lot of people volunteering at the expo who could give me lots of tips about Milano.

Everything you need but no atmosphere despite there being lots of people. Free breakfast was good, luggage storage easily accessible and secure, shower facilities good but needs air con!!!!

The positive aspects of the hostel were that it was cheap, it has a big common area and free breakfast is included. Unfortunately when I went there the temperature was so hot outside and there were no fans in the room, so it was hard to sleep.

Average. Could be better but worth your money.

In my opinion a hostel should realise that they are the first impression of a city or even a country. This hostel seems like an old school building in the ugly outskirts of Milano. The staff was not at all helpful. I found out through other guests that there was a free breakfast. Also I had to ask for a map of the city, to me it just seems logical to leave some maps of the city on the counter or at least explain how to get to the city centre.

No mirrors in the toilet or the rooms. Only one power socket per room. Without air conditioner in the room means the summer nights can be unbearable sometimes.

This place had bo kitchen, kitchen utensils, glasses, forks, or anyrhing like it. Staff was kind of rude but helpful. Washrooms and toilets were out of order, only some of them worked. Out 6 bed form had only one outlet in total so we couldn't charge our electronics. Location was a bit outside the city center but easily accessible with the metro. The overall atmosphere of the hostel was barren and boring. Wouldn't recommend for anything else than the relatively low price.

Great location, I thought it looked kind of far from the city but it's close to two metro stations (QT8 and Lotto) which makes getting around easy. It's also only a few stops from the World Expo. The dorm was pretty standard, and you get a locker with a lock which was great. The bathrooms were okay, they were large but the doors of a lot of the stalls didn't lock and they were kind of dirty but not disgusting. Also the wifi also didn't work at all. It's cheap though and worth what you pay for.

Door to our room was broken and couldn't be closed/locked. Wifi barely worked, bathrooms were dirty, not close to anything at all in terms of sights. Staff mediocre at best. Large hostel with lots of children. Wouldn't stay here again

Character limit so.. Negative points: - Receptionist (wore a suit, african heritage, chewed gum loudly with his mouth open) rude to all customers and took 1hr to check in bout 12 people (including me and my gf) - My gf got given no locker key (was reassured that the American girls in her room were definitely safe) - Your hostel allows junkies in (male who was staying there physically and verbally assaulted my girlfriend, maybe this is acceptable in Italy?) - Toilets were unclean - No Linen

Very good

It was very hard to find the hostel, in a very quiet area and the finding the entrance was a nightmare especially at the nights. Charging the phone in room wasn't possible but could do in the reception. The staff in the reception was not bad. Breakfast had the option of cereals, tea/coffee and water only.

Staffs super nice, but the hostel is not clean, not share places, not rooms and even less toilet. Lots of things broke and not fixed. Too away from the center, but maybe 5 min from the metro. For the price you shouldnt expect anything better maybe.

The ratings for the hostel was higher than what the hostel is rated. The ladies bathroom on the second floor only had two out of the three working and one of them was clogged so the dirty water collects a foot deep in the shower,, leaving you only the ledges to stand on(split stance) frankly speaking, for the price no one is complaining about the bed sheets(really clean), or the lack of decoration. It's just a basic upkeep of the property would be nice :) ps: the bed i slept in was really creaky

All it's been good but the location quite far. There's not enough socket to plug your devices, apart from that I enjoyed!

Can't recommend this place! Rooms are OK but no Power supply! I was forced to charge my PowerBar in the Common room, where it was stolen. Cleaner took the stuff I left in the room (don't know the reason) - could get it back the next day...
