I've been staying in hostels for the past 2 months and this is the worst one yet, unfortunately. They have potential but need to do some major clean up and each individual room should definitely have locks. Once you're in the building anyone can go in any room! If this is your only accommodation option for Milan, I would skip. (Even though this is the highest rated hostel in the city..)


Poor quality, dirty and rather fatiscent

Nice place, really organize and clean, a little dar from town town.


Would not recommend this hostel. You were not allowed to have food or drinks in your room and they never had any change at the bar. The bathrooms were dirty and they ran out of towels. Breakfast was also terrible and the wifi only works in the lobby.

Good location, had a good night. My complain about here that i could not connect to internet from my room.


Nice hostel with a relaxed international atmosphere and friendly/helpful staff. Location was great, barely 20 min to the city centre! However, showers are not always warm and the bedrooms do not seem to be heated!

Good, but cold in the winter. Good place to meet people.


Milan does not offer a long list of options, the place is managed on a "property needs only" perspective. I had to move many times from one room to another to fulfill groups allocation, and with a long showy sorry. For me this is what to point at, the rest follows on

Hi and thanks for your review! we are sorry to hear you're not satisfied with your stay at Zebra Hostel, however our structure is not intended for long stays as yours, and we always tried to help you as possible reserving you quiet and small rooms. Eventually we had to to move you to another bed as we had to reserve a full room for a group.


The hostel was very dirty and dusty. I stayed at a different hostel for less money than this one and it was a much better environment.

They need refurbishing. Wasn't too bad. I didn't sleep very well since I read the review about the bed bugs and it made me awake everytime I felt something. Breakfast is nice, and lounge area is spacious.


I'm not going again.


I wish I could load a photo to show how badly I have been bitten by sleeping in this hostel. My face has over 10 bites and my right arm is covered from the armpit to my hand in big red bites! Wish I hadn't booked the second night. Internet works on the ground floor. Sheets had dark hair on them when I went to make the bed. Shower. No pressure or hot water it was like a tap spraying. Not much option for hostels in Milan so stay if you need to.


There is no key at the room and the bed wasn't very clean. The location ia very good, although from the underground station you need to walk on a very dark street. There is no wifi conection at the room, just downstairs at the commom area. The light of my bed wasn't working and i complained to the staff, but nothing was done.


I had an excellent stay. Cleanliness is great. And there are no bedbugs. (They had been reported in some earlier posts...)


The location is awesome and the staff were really helpful. However the hostel is in a bad state; all the toilets were bloked, the showers dirty, bedroom doors broken and walls incredibly thin. If your on a budget then this hostel is ok.

I am quite sure I picked up bedbugs from the hostel. Otherwise okay.


Pretty standard hostel with potential depending on what friends you can make with the other guests.
