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.

    Babila Hostel had lots of social areas! The kitchen had 2 sinks and plently of counter space. The terrace was lovely to hang out at night and drinks were cheap. The bedrooms were nice and had a space where the headboard would be to put cellphone, waterbottle etc. Multiple USB jacks for every bed. Towel included. The bathroom was a little stinky upon arrival but the following day the smell resided. Bikes for rent- limited amount so get early. Free walking tours offered. Would stay here again.

    The only real problem I had was that the air-conditioning in my room was not strong enough and got very warm throughout the day and night.

    This hotel was well located- only a 10 minute walk to the duomo at most which is where all the action in Milan takes place. The staff was helpful when it came to asking them about train information. Breakfast was great as well. I will say these two things which made my stay subpar. The AC- horrible. It was boiling in a 8 person room. Not enjoyable to sleep in. I also was very uncomfortable as a solo traveler with the couples sleeping together in one bed. Not appropriate for a hostel.
