Liked: This hostel is for the location. It is the closests to Milano Centrale. It is not in a great neighborhood. It is safe and clean inside. The staff is pleasant. It's a bed and a nice shower. The rest is what you make of it.

Disliked: Hard to find because the directions are not correct of the web-site.

Liked: Very good value for money. Very clean. Modern and very clean bathroom with good hot showers. Nice, clean linen and towels provided. A microwave and kettle available. Close to Milan Central Station which makes getting around easy. It's on the first floor which is good if you have heavy suitcases.

Disliked: One very minor thing is that it's not marked from the outside. There are no signs on the outside to show you where it is, but if you look on the doorbell list outside the building you can find the hotel name.

Liked: We booked our room on the day that we needed it and there was no problem when we showed up 20 min later to check in (we couldn't get a train that day and didn't have anywhere to stay) the location was perfect, less than a five minute walk from the station and relatively good restaurants at reasonable prices in the area. Clean room with comfy bed and warm water in the shower. WiFi worked well (handled a Skype call back home easily), not much more to ask for.

Disliked: Shower was in the room in a frosted glass cubicle that hides nothing... an ensuite would have been a little more comfortable, not sure why you would have the shower in the room like that but I don't think it's the same in shared rooms (we booked a double). Had to leave our key at the desk when we left (no big deal but worth mentioning...)

Liked: The hostel is 10mins walk from the central station. The girl at the reception speaks good English, I needed to leave at 5 am and she was nice enough to wake up for me. The towel and linen were clean.

Disliked: The street outside the hostel is extremely noisy.

Liked: This hostel is 10 minutes walk to Milan's main railway station (Centrale) which connects to the much more interesting parts of the city by metro, bus and tram (which shares its tracks with other motorists and thus takes forever - avoid it if possible). If you are looking for nightlife (and you should, because the Piazza XXIV Maggio district is an excellent night out) this is fine, because the buses and trams run to Centrale station till at least 2.30am. The area around the hostel, though a bit rundown, is well-equipped with local amenities, such as cheap bars and restaurants, grocers, an internet cafe. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable, although they are really close to the floor. In the room we stayed in, the beds were arranged in a rather scattered fashion, along with a huge wardrobe, and other furniture, including a TV which did not have an aerial. All the accommodation is situated on the ground floor of a large building shared with other businesses including a dental practice, so close the inner window shutters to avoid being awoken by morning rush hour traffic (the outer window panes can be left open to make the heat bearable). Towels are provided and wi-fi is available. There are two clean and well-presented bathrooms with a shower in each, but the hostel is rather small so there are unlikely to be queues. Despite the lack of a communal area, the hostel does sell bottled water, pop and Heineken at cheap prices.

Disliked: The fact that there are no keys to the rooms (the receptionists said there was only one key per room, but we were never allowed to actually have it, even though we asked), and they appear to be left unlocked all day and night is slightly worrying, and the two receptionists, who seemed to be on rotation for the entire duration of our stay, seemed completely blase about this. Having said this, the reception desk was never unmanned so any would-be intruder would have to get past that. The area around the hostel is a bit run-down, and local businesses include a seedy-looking gay club and a table-dancing bar, and it - and the hostel itself - seems to attract a lot of Chinese and other ethnic minorities. The receptionists (also Chinese) were a bit thick and didn't seem to understand what a postbox was when I asked in English where the nearest one was to mail a postcard. They laughed rather rudely at me and claimed that there was "no post in Milan" - which is perhaps the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard (not to mention, completely untrue).

Liked: It's close to the central station. So it's a good place for staying when you're leaving the next day from Milan. The staff is very friendly. The beds are comfortable and they provide free towels.

Disliked: There's no kitchen or common room to hang out. It doesn't really seem like a nice backpackersplace.
