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!

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.
- 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

    It is a peaceful site, near the public transportation and having a Restaurant on site was very convenient. Enjoyed the Saturday market.

    Interesting place to stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There are people who live here permanently so you will have to share a room with people who have their stuff everywhere. There are no lockers but a wardrobe you share with others so cannot lock your stuff. Breakfast basic but it's okay. The atmosphere is a little strange and not easy to meet fellow travelers. Close to the metro.

    Location is nice, pretty close to a subway station. The receptionist was extremely kind and helpful. Free breakfast was nice. The dorm itself was pretty simple and old, but clean. However, the biggest problem during my stay were my two roommates who were permanently living in the hostel. Their stuff filled the entire room and both of them were quite rude. While I love the idea that the hostel is a social integration project, I was happy that my stay was only one night.

    No lockers to keep your stuff in! Even thought it says that they have them in their page. A good place to sleep one or two nights in. Location is kind of shady but okay, not far from the metro.

    It was one of the weirdest place I've ever stayed. It is not super far from the center of Milan, but be aware it is like 20-25 minutes by metro to get in. The staff was kind and helped if I needed anything, I checked in at 2 am without any problems. I've read the comments here so I knew there will be elders, but I couldn't read or write at the common area because this lady was watching the tv on max volume for hours. Overall, it was ok, but if you want to socialize, this is not the place.

    The main reason I want to give this rating is because our room smelled intensely of smoke. It was difficult to sleep in there. Other things included the staff were not friendly, the matrasses were bad quality, and we showered luke warm even after keeping the trap on for a while. Not worth what we paid at all.

    I arrived around midnight and I had trouble finding the location and when I called the front desk was super unhelpful - he kept repeating the address and then hung up. When I called a second time he said he couldn't help me, he was sleeping. It took me another hour to get my phone to show the correct location, I almost just booked a different place right then and there but it was so far from anything else in Milan. Probably fine if you arrive in the daytime but my experience was a disaster.

    As a female traveller I did not feel safe here. The atmosphere was really weird. There are people living in the dorm rooms. There was no safety lockers for my stuff and my door didn’t lock properly so people kept wondering in and out of our room. The staff weren’t present in my room. The staff weren’t present in the evening to sort these issues out and the place had a funny smell. The facilities were reasonably clean but the kitchen had limited stove space.
