Liked: Good location, English-speaking staff, big common area, decent breakfast (except coffee, which was rather poor).

Disliked: You cannot adjust water temperature in the shower, so good luck washing yourself with boiling water :) nearly everything comes with additional charge, they put notes about fines for smoking/overnight guests everywhere, giving the hostel slightly prison-like taste.

Liked: It had a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Great location and much to do including games and a bar. Pretty good kitchen.

Disliked: Bathrooms weren't too great, but not the worst. There were so many mosquitos in the hostel, and the rooms were so open that we were eaten alive.

Liked: Really neat hostel right off the tram and near the metro. Pool tables, board games, fusball, and a fully equipped kitchen and bar. It was very easy to find our way there from central station. The people at reception were great; they recommended great things to do and were really helpful. We were only there for two nights, but the overall experience was great. Showers worked well and there was hot water. Bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean. Breakfast was included and was really decent for a hostel; cereal, toast, pastries, coffee, OJ - better than most. Really secure too, you had to swipe a key card to get into the premises. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Disliked: Quite cold, but they provide excellent duvets.

Liked: I stayed four nights at this hostel. Staff was always extremely kind, helpful, smiling and flexible. The bedding was obviously nicely fresh and the washroom was also nice and clean continuously. I loved the hot water I could get anytime I went for shower. Beds were quite comfortable for this price and breakfast also was okay. Lovely decorations with the little Zebra around, and beautiful pictures on the wall all over. :-)

Disliked: It was cold in the lounge while I was using Internet, I was sitting there wearing my winter coat.

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: 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.
