Overall a good experience staying in Milan, but not because of the Hostel. 1) Zebra owners, how can you not afford to pay for electricity while people are showering/on the toilet? Seriously, get rid of the auto-turn off lights. 2) Zebra owners, find a way to motivate your staff. They are not sociable at all and don't really seem to enjoy working with you. Especially the female employees at the reception were a damn downer. That said, Zebra hostel does actually have a great common area!
This was my second stay at Carpe Noctem Vitae. Often situations like that create inflated expectations, and i was afraid that would happen in my case as well, as my last stay was simply amazing. But the reality was far from that. The staff of Vitae are simply wonderful individuals, and you cant help but get the feel of one big family while staying there. Furthermore, every night these guys arranged the best parties, pubcrawls and all kinds of shinanigans. It was AMAZING! Cant wait to go back.
