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. 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 breath 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.

We are glad to offer you:

- Free breakfast, 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)

Set inside a 20th-century Italian Tudor building with big, arched windows, Babila Hostel is atmospheric as it is awesome. You'll find a stylish bistro and bar on site (don't leave home without trying a Milanese spritz!) or you can combine cooking with tanning thanks to the rooftop barbecue area – complete with amazing views. From the moment you rock up and get handed a welcome drink, you'll see this is a super friendly hostel. We also have facilities like a clean, open kitchen where you can cook, chat and chill, as well as sit down for a free breakfast! Common areas with a PlayStation add to the fun.


We're in Milan's fashion quarter, about a 15-minute walk from the city's spectacular cathedral. Just behind it, you'll find Luigi's, the home of melt-in-your-mouth panzerottis (grab one of our free city maps to find your way there!). Coming late from Milan Linate Airport? You can check in any time – we've got a 24-hour reception. There's a bus that goes from Arrivals to Milan Centrale Railway Station in the daytime. Hop on the metro from here towards the Duomo, then change for San Babila station. We're an 8-minute walk from here, and all in all the trip will take a speedy half an hour.

Rooms and Dorms

We took inspiration from major Italian designers when creating our rooms and we love bright colours! There are private options or female-only and mixed dorms, all with en-suites, and you'll have your bedding and towels included (bonus). Each bunk has a super useful USB, plug socket and lamp.

Extras and activities

Our hostel is the place to hang out and make new friends, because our staff love to get guests mixing with one another! Our events – including karaoke nights, live music and DJ sets – are just made for bonding over. We've even got a gym if you want a workout, or you can just take it easy in the café.

    Breakfast options are limited but the rest of it was awesome. Comfy beds, ample locker space (you don’t need to bring your own lock), with the lockers inside the rooms. The yoga room is just the end of a hallway, with no doors or anything, just yoga mats. The kitchen was well-equipped.

    I booked a room for me and my friends. The space is just enough for us and the private bathroom is super! Breakfast choices are not that a lot though. They also offered free drink and live band in the evening. This is also very convenient, 15minutes to Duomo. Also, the reception staff was very friendly. He was really accommodating. P.S. bring your own Shampoo, soap and toothpaste.

    The hostel is very modern and stylish with bathroom facilities I have ever seen. They even have a bar for those who chose to stay inside and chill. The receptionists were also very nice and my check-in was flawless. I will definitely go back next year and spend more time in the city.

    Since I needed to leave earlier than the breakfast time, the guys of the staff kindly offered me to put some food TO GO. I never saw something like this, great initiative, usually hostels don't care if you need to leave before. I was happy and for that reason recommend it. Grazie mille!

    Such a good time staying here. Each dorm has an ensuite with two showers and a toilet which is perfect and the beds have charging docks, a lamp and shelf. You get free WiFi, linen, towels and breakfast which is so good. The staff are nice and security is great.

    The staff were standoffish and did not contribute positive vibes. Please consider a smile on your face as when people walk into reception it is hard to feel welcomed with stubborn staff. Also, it is not even worth trying to do your laundry as it is only available after 9pm. I asked for the laundry key 3 days in a row and all staff members told me something different until I figured it out. It is not efficient to only have 2 washing machines available for use as well.
