Property Description

Madama Hostel & Bistrot is located in a former police station inside a liberty-style building. All furniture has been built entirely with recycled materials.
Our hostel's team have traveled a lot. We know that is not easy to be a backpacker and that's why we do our best to help our guests to enjoy their stay. “Madama sounds like home” is our motto and we live up to this with our large comfy rooms, a warm chill-out area and great staff!
We have bright shared rooms with 4 or 6 beds, all air conditioned with a private bathroom and individual lockers for storage. Free Wi-Fi connection is included as well as a USB charging port and reading lights near each bed. Also, there are private rooms (either with a double two single bed)
Madama is the perfect meeting point between Milan and the travelers. During our aperitivo or our amazing Karaoke you can meet locals and experience the Milanese lifestyle. We also host expositions, handmade/vintage markets, live concerts and much more!
Madama Hostel & Bistrot is 5 minutes walking distance from the underground station Lodi T.I.B.B. To get out of the metro station take the exit on the left toward P.zzle Lodi. Then take the only road going uphill which passes over the railway tracks. Take the first road on the right (Via Brembo) followed by the first left (Via Benaco). You will find us on the corner (look out for our big blue umbrellas!)
Madama Hostel is well connected with the main tourist attractions in city. Piazza Duomo in the city center is only 4 stops away on the metro. The hostel is also situated in an area with good nightlife. Nearby, 10 minutes by foot, you can find the Porta Romana neighborhood that offers a lot of pubs and bars. Too lazy to walk? Don't worry, just below the hostel there is the Ohibò club which offers music, concerts and much more!!

    My friend and I stayed in the two person private room because it was only a few euros more than beds in a shared room! The room was literally perfect and so cute! The staff was so helpful, the place had great vibes with a ton of food included. If I had to nitpick I would say that it could’ve been slightly more central but it is actually a great spot to be in if you’re taking the train into Milan because it’s a five minute walk from the metro after the train station. Highly recommend!

    Madama was great. It was clean, provided a really warm environment for meeting others, and had an amazing appertivo. They had their restaurant/bar open to the public as well, which was super different and fun. Plus, there were multiple days where there was live music or other events.

    I absolutely loved it here. Good vibes, very social place, amazing staff. The rooms are very bright and have high ceilings. The bed was very comfy, bathrooms clean. Huge communal kitchen which I did not use as the price includes a solid breakfast buffet and even an absolutely amazing dinner "aperetivo" buffet, which is also popular with locals. The hostel is not in a super central location but that was not an issue at all because the metro takes you there within a short 15 min ride.

    Stayed with 12 Friends, staff was super friendly. There was a good terrace outside. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfy beds. The only slight downside was a party/club near the hostel that was noisy. But they offered free gezellig. I would recommend this hostel!!

    Overall, a great hostel. The bathrooms were my only complaint. While they were not terrible, the floors would flood with water if you were not very careful with the shower curtain. My roommates frequently let the floor flood and did not use the mop to clean it up - that was annoying. It's also fairly noisy at night with club music coming from nearby.

    This is a really nice hostel to stay. Everything was on the level. But not for solo travelers who like to meet new people. There lots of locals in the bar downstairs so the hostel doesn’t have the welcoming vibe of traveling.

    Pros: 1-very nice staff and always helpful 2-good value with free breakfast and dinner 3-the bar downstairs was great and always lively, staff are really nice and I loved the aperitif 4-clean overall, secure and 5 minutes walk to the metro Cons: 1-Music on Saturday in the club nearby is quite loud till late, you need to wear ear plugs (still hear a little even with ear plugs) 2-only one mirror inside the bathroom of the female dorm is definitely not enough 😅. 3-annoying greenflashligh
