Balint Hujter thinks…

"Good breakfast. Although it is not in the center, it is easy to reach by urban transport (metro 1 or 5; trolley 90/91). Cheap."

Liked: I was visiting a friend at Amendola Fiera, and it is nearby

Disliked: It was really hard to get any sleep. The beds are noisy, the corridors are noisy, the lockers are noisy, the corridor light stays on all night and shines through a massive window above each room door

Liked: It was perfect for what I needed, which was a bed for a night and place to do my laundry. Other than that, the place felt like an institution, or hospital. The coffee machine at breakfast rocked

Disliked: Had no character.

Liked: It's really organised, clean and safe. There are a lot of facilities which make it pretty convenient and complete. The staff is all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great. It's ecological in many ways. I really recommend it for anyone who wants a great value for their money.

Disliked: In multiple rooms there's light and sound coming from the corridors, but not unbearable. Private rooms are excellent, though.

27 February 2012

Liked: clean rooms and generally well looked after property,

Disliked: bit hard to get to as arriving at night was a bit of a challenge and the description of how to get there on the site was not helpful at all, i was lucky to find someone walking on the street that was happy to assist, also the sign at the station pointing in the direction of the hostel is actually wrong!!! Beware of arriving at night as it looks like a really scary place with desolate buildings all around covered in graffiti, not very nice at all.

25 September 2011 Anita would recommend this property

Liked: Relatively cheap hostel, free WiFi and free car parking. Close to a subway station, so you can easily reach the cirty centre by subway. Breakfast was OK.

Disliked: There were a lot of ants on our room floor! We dropped a cookies packaging on the floor, so that's why there were so many, perhaps if we didn't drop it there wouldn't have been any. But still, to have so many ants on the second floor, it was nasty... Shower turned itself off after a few minutes, which was quite disturbing. There was no elevator. Overall, the entire hostel felt like a school campus, due to both the setting and the average age of the guests. Which is fun if you are a student/backpacker, but as ex-students we felt a bit out of place. However, the atmosphere was OK.

Liked: Cheapest place to stay in Milan, breakfast was pretty good. Large number of showers, camp style though so just a curtain.

Disliked: Lockers outside rooms were very noisy cause people would go outside and slam the doors etc thinking that cause they were outside the room noone could hear them...but you can hear everything! A large hostel so just people everywhere (and lots of families etc).
