Property Description

OstellOlinda is an original and unusual hostel inside a huge and beautiful park, where once was located the Paolo Pini psychiatric Hospital.

The Hostel is a two-storeyed building with a green inside garden where you can chill and relax.
There is a fully-equipped kitchen (we provide some free food and spices) and a lounge room where you can study, work or watch tv.
In front of the Hostel, the Bar Restaurant Jodok - where you can have delicious and not-so-expensive food!
We offer a buffet breakfast with bread/butter/jelly/nutella, cake and cookies, cereals and muesli, fruits, juices, milk, coffee and tea.

You can quickly reach the downtown/Duomo and the Central Station with the Yellow Line of the subway, that is 5 min walking to the hostel (Stop: Affori FN)

There is a shopping mall 5 min walking distance, where you can find anything you may need. In the neighborhood you can find a few pizzerias, bars and shops. On Saturday morning, right outside the hostel, there is a typical Italian street market.
On Saturday and Sunday, all the guests are invited to share a typical Italian lunch with staff and friends.

We believe in the hospitality as a means of integration. That’s why in our Hostel, a few persons, who have been partly secluded from society have found work and socialization opportunities. This aim of integration, shared by all the staff, leads to an accommodation policy centered on relationships: you will feel home here!

- Reception open from 9 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Late check-in: if you arrive after 7pm, you can easily selfcheck-in with the automatic key box (please ask for information)
- Check out 11:00 a.m. (but we can keep your luggages as long as you need!)
- Payment on arrival
- Free public parking in the street
- You can bring your pets! (if you sleep in a private room) View House Rules

    Hostel is not in the centre, but in the green, quiet area, you can get there by metro or a car. It is run by the association Olinda. The mission of the association is to promote social integration of people with mental health problems. The association yearly organizes the cinema/theater festival “Da vicino nessuno è normale” (“Nobody is normal, if you look closer”. I stayed in this hostel, because I wanted to support the Olinda association and I liked the atmosphere.

    OstellOlinda is a little rough around the edges, but I never thought of staying anywhere else in Milano. There seem to be permanent and semi-permanent residents, as well as short term stayers like myself, and everyone is polite, but quietude and privacy seems paramount, and I welcome this. It is also, by accident or design, reinforced by a particularly fragile internet connection, but at a certain point you embrace this exigency. Quiet, clean, and frugal, but also very well situated.

    Very Good

    My room was clean and spacious, though there are no lockers. The bathroom is shared. Breakfast was included which was great! The hostel is quite far from the city centre and is in a residential area. There is no nightlife/ social activity close to the hostel.There are no night staff so a late arrival can be difficult.

    Very Good

    Me and girlfriend stayed at the hostel for 4 days in July. Pros: The staff were helpful and spoke very good English. Everywhere was very clean. We were given lockers and keys for the outside gate to allow us to come and go whenever we wanted. The hostel was only 5 mins from the metro. Cons: Awfully unreliable wifi. There were two big groups who we were told had exclusive access to the two dining rooms and seemed to occupy the kitchen most of the evenings also. We were covered in mosquito bites

    They made a mistake in the booking, but the staff was not helpful. Neither a small refund nor any other suggestions. The place itself is ok. Rooms are big but outdated. Needs periodic maintenance (doors to shared bathrooms stick --> noisy, etc.)

    The place is okay but it is in need of maintenance. The hot water is not working properly, water is leaking from the showers and the face sink in our room was backed up. Breakfast was delicious.

    Staff are extremely rude. They did not process my cancellation and then charged the fee. I would not reccommend dealing with this hostel, from my limited experience with them it appears that the staff are simply concerned with making money and do not care for customer experience. Would not recommend.
