Liked: the hostel is very near to the metro station which good and cheap enough.

Disliked: there is no hot water for the shower. the compound for the building itself might need some clean up. my first thought of the building was that it was an abandoned building and i might need to look for another place to stay in.

Liked: The black marble design looks cool.

Disliked: No toilet paper. The shower is in the toilet but at least has 2 bathrooms. The unmentioned tax fee. For that amount of total money we would have gone to another hostel with breakfast... The beds were dirty and seemed a bit unstable. I have to cancel our further reservation in this Hostel.

Liked: It is near to the metro station.

Disliked: You should make the 1 euro charge for the bedding clearer, I would like to know what I am paying for in advance. The bathroom and the room were not clean. The shower battery didn't work properly, so someone removed it and then it was possible to take a shower. There was no soap. The staff told us (we have booked 3 bed in a 5 bed room) that one of us should sleep in another room. at the end it turned out that it was wrong information. My room was next to the bathroom, the wall next to my bed was wet all the time due to the this little flood. This wall was also dirty because of the water. The internet was very poor, we had to go out of the room and to stand in the hall. There aren't keys of the rooms.

Liked: I really enjoyed my time here because of other guests and the staff. The staff at Black & White were lovely, helpful and made my stay enjoyable. The metro is very close, and just one line takes you right to the Duomo. There is a large supermarket within 5 minutes walk and lots of eateries/coffee shops around. My bed was comfortable and cosy.

Disliked: The kitchen is not very well equipped, there is one hob, no kettle, no sharp knives. It would be better if there were a comfortable place to sit for guests, like a common room. There are only two shower rooms for all the guests and one does not have not water. The Internet was good until everyone got home. You should make the €1 charge for bedding clearer, I would rather know what I am paying up front.

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff

Disliked: Only two bathrooms for all the rooms, so you have to wait long to get into shower in the morning. The metro only runs till 00:30 so it's hard to get to the hostel after midnight.

Liked: hostel building is beautiful, very Italian, atmospheric, almost historic. Inside is a very nice garden, unfortunately, no one had virtually no sitting. The service is nice.

Disliked: There's no hostel atmosfere. No common room-only kitchen, but people are not tend to socialise in it. Far away from centre, so there's no when to go out in the night, and you can't hang out in the kitchen,even in the lounge after midnight. To historical city center you have to go 1 hour by foot.

Liked: The location: 1 minute from a metro station, though the station itself is far from center. The staff id pretty friendly. The building is very old and beautiful. Clean rooms with old-style high ceilings and pretty clean beds.

Disliked: Unlike the sleeping rooms the bathrooms are rather dirty, half time out of toilet paper and soap. In my room there was a problem with the window. Lack of electric sockets.

Liked: It was very safe to stay at.youhad to buz in when you reach the front gate. you then have your own key to get in the front door. once you are in at night time the man at reception pulls out a litle bed and sleeps by the door. for backpacking the facilities are amazing. the kitchen has everything you could need and is spacious. the rooms are big as well and the atmosphere is great. people staying there aged from 18 to 52 so there was a great mix. the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the wifi is AWESOME

Liked: Great location, not sure what some of the other negative reviews were on about, but my friend and I were 100% satisfied. Very near the Metro as well. Incredible value, and a nice enough hostel (I've stayed in a few in Milano [Hostel California, Zebra Hostel], and this was my favorite, value was worth the negative issues [below]).

Disliked: Bathroom wasn't particularly clean, but it wasn't excessively dirty. About what one would expect from a shared bathroom.
