Property Description

Babila Hostel & Bistrot is an unique design hostel in the heart of Milan. The historical building that gives home to it was built in 1896 and had been a catholic school for a long time. The hostel was inaugurated on September 15th 2017 and it is located in the fashion district of Milan, walking distance from San Babila square and subway station, buses and trams.
The idea of our design is mixing old and new, traditional and fashionable to bring past and present closer, keeping the original characteristics of the building with a modern touch.
Our rooms are bright and spacious, each of them featuring an ensuite bathroom with shower, equipped with soap and shampoo. Each bed has its own lamp, socket with usb adapter and locker.Bed sheets are provided by us. Towels are available for 2 Eur each. Breakfast served from 7:30 to 10:30 (muesli, cereals, fruit, juices, milk, coffee and hot drinks, tart, croissant, cheese and ham, bread with butter, jam, chocolate and honey) for only 3,90 Eur per person per night.
From the terrace at the third floor it is possible to enjoy the view over the rooftops of Milan.

In our Bar & Bistrot area you can try some traditional Italian dishes and our chef Atif specialties. Every week, we organize concerts, jam sessions, art exhibitions and multicultural gatherings, so you can enjoy the party with your new friends and with locals from Milan. From the first day we wanted to create a place where it is possible to breathe an international atmosphere, where people can get connected through cultural exchanges, and enjoy the pleasure to be together with no barriers.

We care about our planet and try to be green as much as possible. We are only one drop in the sea, but we believe that a lot of drops together can make the difference. Based on this, we do not use straws in the bar, bathrooms are equipped with dispensers so to reduce disposable packaging, we put a lot of attention on selective waste collection, we provide a digital map designed by us to avoid paper waste and we choose partners and suppliers who share our same values and mission.

    Very nice location and property. The in suite bathrooms were also clean and there was a free locker in the room for each bed and outlets for each bed which was really nice Only downsides are you had to pay for towels and the AC was not strong enough so it would get very hot at night.

    There was such a good atmosphere in the hostel, the staff were so nice and helpful. Was quite far from central station but only about 15 minutes to the duomo and close to loads of transport lines so wasn’t an issue :) Definitely would stay again :)

    The hostel was a great location! close to the center, but far enough that it was quiet. The hostel has very chill vibes which I liked! However, if you're looking for a party hostel, I would go elsewhere. The rooms are super clean and it is so nice to have the ensuite bathrooms! I also really appreciated that they let me keep my bags there for an extra few hours while I explored the city before leaving.

    Great hostel for solo travelers. The people there are all very friendly. Not too far away from the shopping district and the Duomo. Very good laundry service. They’ll do your laundry for you for a fee. Building has a charming historical elevator. Wish it were slightly closer to a subway station, but getting around Milan still wasn’t difficult. Pillows were too stiff.

    One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It's very clean and has all the facilities you need - with a toilet and showers in your room of 6 people (which is very convenient), as well as a laundry room and restaurant/bar area with games/musical instruments. There's even also a terrace. My only negative is that the luggage room wasn't very secure - it was an open room and people could easily access it.

    Staff were very friendly, check in and out was easy. The location is ideal as it's in central Milan but is still on a quiet road. We had breakfast at the hostel which was a good price and very good quality although juice should have been ice cold. We wanted to do our laundry but the staff said only they could do it, which was a bit odd - guests should be allowed to wash their own laundry! Also, the mosquito nets need replacing as they somehow kept getting in and got lots of awful bites :(
