Liked: Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location in the city.

Disliked: Anyone can come in this hostel and get all the way up to your room as there is no front door or doors on the rooms (at least the floor i stayed on there were no doors). There is lockers you can use though. The walls don't go up to the ceiling and a curtain hangs across it. So you hear the noise from other rooms and in the hallway. There were a lot of mosquitos and were buzzing around my head all night. The shower works and is warm, but it's a little dribble of water coming out, so it just takes awhile to have a shower.

Liked: This place turned out to be better than I expected. In the first place it's a hostel so I didn't expect much but truth be told it went beyond. It was quiet enough it was clean enough. It's very central and I even met other cool tourists. What else do you really expect from a hostel.

Disliked: Not much. Maybe it could be a little cleaner but it's a hostel with hot showers. Can't complain.

Liked: Not much

Disliked: there are no doors on the bedrooms. You get the noise from all the other rooms & it echoes quite loudly! Not secure, anyone can come in your room as its open all the time 24 hours & security at front desk is not good. If you want to party and not sleep then its ok. Dont plan on getting any sleep though. Showers are bad. Nowhere to get undressed or dressed. Nowhere to hang your towel. They are also renovating. Very noisy. Not recommended.

Liked: Breakfast was aok and the location was good for the trams and you could walk into the centre in about 15minutes

Disliked: there were no plugs in the bedroom for you to be able to charge. The showers didnt have any room for you to hang your clothes or towel. You had to pay for the Internet, unless you access to wifi. Only one light bulb in the room with 24 beds It was a good hostel just a few things need to change for it to be great

Liked: Pretty much everything! If you had the right staff they were really helpful, great atmosphere after 7pm as there was happy hour - we met so many people! Kitchen had really good facilities, plenty of pots, pans and cutlery and the free breakfast was really good too. Beds were the best we've slept in and the bathroom was always clean. Great place and would recommend it and stay again!

Disliked: some of the staff were rude. Even though the kitchen facilities were good some of the stoves didn't work. Showers were really small but it's a hostel - so expexctations shouldn't be too high. The room we stayed in didn't have a door, which didn't bother me too much but for those who wouldn't you can pay a bit more and get a room with a door. You could here everything that people were doing in other rooms but that's not the hostels fault it's rude arrogant people.

Liked: I was here for just one night on a Sunday, paid 14e. The atmosphere seemed okay and I was able to meet other young travellers. The staff were nice and give you a map to show you the main areas of Milan/give advice how to get to the train station at 5 in the morning. I really just came to sleep for cheap and it was fine for that, but I could see on other nights it may be difficult to sleep in the bigger dorms, as the walls are thin and there are a lot of people. But on those nights it may also be a party hostel, so a plus for that. The Zebra style was interesting. I missed the breakfast but was told it was free. Lockers to lock your things, but anyone can walk into the dorm. There are wristbands so they can identify people not from the hostel.

Disliked: No showers from 12pm-6am, probably due to noise. I needed to leave at 5, I still had a shower though. Thin walls with gap at the top for maximisation of noise between dorms.

Liked: El caracter y atmosfera es de un verdadero hostel. Podes conocer gente, hay ping pong, bar, metegol, cocina, heladera, recepción las 24 horas, el common room es grande y amplio, hay biblioteca, internet y te dan las sábanas (lino) y el lugar está bueno. Tenés el tranvía a una cuadra y te dan toda la información de la zona como pizzerías, ATM, farmacia. Gente que conoce de backpacking.

Disliked: El baño podría estar mejor y mi habitación era un poco cálida, como todo Milán.

Liked: It was in an okay location and the kitchen faculties were very good. If you dont mind roughing it, this hostel will do

Disliked: Bed bugs!!!! Also the general atmosphere wasn't very fun, they had the set up but I guess there were not enough people during my stay. The showers only worked on one level and the cubicles were very awkwardly designed. It was very rundown and safety was a big issue (they only give you wrist bands, no keys or magnetic card). During my stay the 1st level door was always open. Anybody could have walked in off the street. I probably wouldn't stay here again
