Nathan Nichols thinks…

"Had a cool vibe and was well decorated. Had a lot of potential to be a rocking place but this wasn't actualised."

Liked: The atmosphere is nice and beds are comfortable.

Disliked: It is a very long walk from the metro station and it doesn't feel very secure in the neighbourhood late at night. Toilets are horrible. Transportation in Milan is good so just try to find a hostel close to the metro station. Would not stay there again.

Liked: Location quite good. Close to the city center (20-30 minutes by walk). Friendly staff.

Disliked: There were no appropriate room isolation (nor from the point of view of the sound, nor from the point of you of the light (!!!), nor from the point of view of the privacy (rooms were never locked)), due to absence of the cellar!!! The whole space was the workshop someday in the past and right now the rooms are organized by small walls (having only the half of the height of the "natural" celling)... The water oftenly was not warm enough (so that only prepared travellers could have shower). Overall the temperature in the hostel was low. To add negative I'd like to mention that the kitchen was closed at 22:00 and there were no light in the corridors, so that it was really hard to navigate to the to room or to the toilet!!!

Liked: Went on the pubcrawl, had an excelent night and met some awesome people (including the guy running it). The location is pretty good aswell with most of the city centre reachable within 15 mins.

Disliked: SO MANY RULES. On every door, wall and window you will see reminders of the rules and the sanctions on offer if you fail to abbide by them. I get the feeling that the old lady that struggled to say hello to us at reception may be the owner! Also I think I may have got cleaner if somebody had spat on than in the rubbish showers at Zebra!

Liked: No problems meeting people when I was travelling alone. Good communal area with table tennis and pool table. Can buy drinks all night long which is a plus (although not as cheap as you may expect)

Disliked: Unbearably hot during the nights since no AC. Toilets blocked whilst I stayed there.

Liked: The atmosphere is really nice,you can actually feel like at home,some activities at the common area and big kitchen

Disliked: There were about 8 bikes and said we could rent,all of them were broken. The staff dont care about how are the clients,they only care about money. After check out you are OBLIGATE,yes, OBLIGATE to leave the hostel,even if you dont have your next plans made.And worse than that the staff blame the owner... So this behaviour actually took the good atmosphere out !

Liked: common area was spacious.

Disliked: there is no security once inside the hostel - there isn't even doors (or full walls) into the dorm room! it was constantly freezing cold - the heating did not work sufficiently. There are bed bugs and the beds do not seem very clean. the staff are unfriendly and do not seem too willing to help.

Liked: Large socialising area which meant you were able to meet other travellers. There was also a bar selling cheap alcohol and a well equipped kitchen. Great ice cream palour across the road.

Disliked: BED BUGS!!!!!!!!!! On our first night at this hostel staying the the 24 bed dorm, i was eaten alive by bed bugs. When we consulted the staff the following day all they offered to give me was a clean duvet cover and did not seem in the slightest bit concerned. Needless to say i spent the second night sleeping on the tiled floor. The rooms are huge and with many beds packed in close together. There is no aircon and the windows offer little ventilation so it got very hot and sticky. We had to walk down 3 flights of stairs just to get to a toilet or shower. This meant walking through other dorms that were partitioned with draped material as opposed to doors. There was a lack of plugs throughout the whole hostel. Only 1 in the dorm and 4 in the main socilaising area. The whole hostel had a fusty damp smell to it. Including the seating areas and "zebra bed" in the main room. This hostel seem to think they are "cooler" than they really are. With a sign up saying "No gang bangs" really?!

Liked: Very convenient location metro and tram very close, ideal for sightseeing and return just for a sleep, some of the staff is very helpful, some other just go by the book. It's a pro that has a 24h reception and you can buy drinks and food in very good prices. All included in price (linen,breakfast) is also honest.

Disliked: Toilets could have more room, Breakfast could be better.

City break

08 October 2012

Liked: There was a bar and space for activity and the bathroom was quite clean.

Disliked: We booked a 6 bed girls dorm and got a 6 bed mixed dorm, which unfortunately wasn't a room. It didn't have a door neither real walls. They walls didn't go up to the ceiling so that it was actually like you were living with the people of the rooms next to you together. You could hear and smell them, but fortunately not see them. PLUS: They had bed bugs. Not only me, but two others persons as well were bitten by these aggressive things. I complained while checking-out. The personell told me that they will contact the manager and then write me an email, but until now almost one week later, I haven't heard anything!
