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. Towels and bed sheets are provided by us. Free 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).
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’s 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.

    Babila is the best hostel I’ve stayed in. The fee covers keyed locker, towel, sheets, complete breakfast (all kinds of hot and cold beverages, bread, pastries, cereal, meats, cheeses). It has a restaurant that’s popular in the neighborhood (a 2-course meal with a drink is €14. The staff is super friendly (shoutout to Sofia and Ashley 😊). I can’t say enough good things about Babila.

    This hostel was AMAZING! It was really clean and the facilities were amazing! Towels provided for the excellent hot showers in the gorgeous bathrooms. Free breakfast every morning which consisted of so many options (food and drinks). Have also never felt so safe in an accommodation before! Also very very comfortable. The people are so lovely and always ready to help and do what they can to make your stay enjoyable. Would definitely come back! Thank you!

    Dorm room was adequate. Bathroom was large and clean. Only complaint is the top bunks only have one handle to help you climb up. It's awkward and uncomfortable getting up there. You must be careful. Not sure if any other travelers feel the same. Staff was extremely kind and very helpful! Free breakfast was excellent and is available for 3 hours!

    Babila Hostel & Bistrot does not have wi-fi in the room or in the kitchen. I complained to the girl in the reception and she told me to go to reception when I wanted wi-fi. It was bad for me to come back from my tourism in the city, take a shower and have to go to reception to get wi-fi. There was wi-fi in the website ad when I made the reservation.
