Liked: Nice and quiet location, great value for the money!

Disliked: The check-in/check-out times were not only super limited but also they closed the gate even earlier than 8pm, so just make sure you let them know if you're coming back before then. Also, the furniture was nice but was very unstable, could have tightened a few bolts or something.

Liked: I had to stay in Milan for a test and the hostel room which was private was very comfortable and quiet to study. The people running the hostel even offered me food, they were very welcoming and kind. It was in a good location but a bit of a walk from the metro.

Disliked: The wifi was absolutely streaky. It would pop up for five minutes and go away for the rest of the day.

Liked: It was a cool design, the staff were helpful. I liked the communal area.

Disliked: They only gave directions for cars in their email so it took me some time to find. Once you get used to getting there it's not so bad.The area didn't have anything in. There were a few empty beds even though we were told the place was fully booked!

19 September 2013 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: Very friendly staff, spoke good English, welcoming, helpful. Loved the Saturday market, totally overbought fruit and veges! Very close to metro system direct to Centrale / Duomo /San Donato markets etc, suburban rail, bus, tram network, supermarkets etc. Also enjoyed the very unusual location and social enterprise aspect - a refreshing change. Plus I met some great new roommates too. Cooking facilities and bathrooms were modest but better than some reviews suggest. For an experienced, open-minded travller, this is a great wee find.

Disliked: No lockers - but lots of space plus proper wardrobes. I didn't mind the 8pm reception closing but others should be aware.

Liked: it was really clean and would probably be a fun place when packed full of people. (when we were there it wasn't that busy, so it was sort of weird being in such a big place with very few other people.) they have lots of common space area to hang out in, which is definitely nice. the location outside centro is actually not that bad, but instead offers a nice, quiet area to wind down in.

Disliked: definitely not enough bathrooms.

Liked: private room!!!!

Disliked: It wasn't clean, bath is terrible, no map, no receptionist at morning on 8 am!!! Location was not good, it was in a garden that it closed on 9pm and you must go to the Museum door for opening the door and you must walk on on dark garden (no light in the garden), This hostel was the worst one that I've been there, I hope it be the last!!!
