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.

Liked: The location very close to the central station. Convenient to the airport shuttle bus if you have an early morning flight. Towels provided (nice after doing without for a few weeks). Fairly clean.

Disliked: The place is very hard to find, despite being close to the station. Poorly written directions. It took me an hour to find it, and that was after asking many people on the street. Beds are rock-hard. Very noisy, as it is located on a busy street. No amenities (kitchen, lockers, etc.). Fine just for a one night stop-over.
