Liked: The toilets and showers in the room.

Disliked: There were no hooks in the toilet to hang towels and clothes. Not even the cover of the wc. Plus, the breakfast consisted only of sweet, fat and refined foods (cakes, muffings, croissants, white bread, Nutella...). There were no wholegrain alternatives, nor muesli, for a healthier breakkie.

16 January 2014 Katherine would recommend this property

Liked: The layout and design was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was sensational - continental at it best - cheese, hams, bread, cakes, juice etc. One of the best hostel breakfasts I have had. It really makes the price worthwhile. The staff were really friendly and helpful as well.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked about this hostel was that I stayed for only one night! (I was in transit). You also need to make sure you have cash available. I had to find an atm quite late at night (I was also stalked by an old dude in a car... not that fun) before I could check in.

Liked: Included breakfast was not so bad, many options of bread and drinks. Far from center, e.g 1 hour walk away from Duomo, but 5 min walk away from the nearest metro, which is not bad. Clerks are nice and helpful. Facilities are clean and modern.

Disliked: Breakfast would be better with some fruits. Too many staris especially if you stay in 2nd floor.

Liked: The secure lockers, close to metro station, clean bed sheets and bathroom, plenty of wall sockets, friendly staff. Don't forget to bring your own pad lock! :)

Disliked: Only sweets for breakfast, wifi is not available in the rooms, bathroom was clean but not very functional (strange door with bidet right in front of it, no wall hangers or shelves), the heating in the room has to be turned on manually (which we discovered in the morning after a whole night of freezing).

Liked: Comfortable, clean and friendly. Atmosphere was a bit lacking but that's no fault of the hostel as much common spaces are available for socialising. Area was quiet, with the window open facing the road it was absolutely fine.

Disliked: No kitchen.

Liked: Easy to get to and from major sites and stations. Staff were very helpful and kind. Rooms and bathrooms and facilities were always clean and tidy. When water went everywhere in the bathroom they cleaned it immediately and ensured it didn't happen again. Overall a good hostel!

Disliked: There isn't much of an atmosphere or social aspect to this hostel aside from occasionally chatting to others in the rooms, it may have just been a particularly quiet bunch there though.

Liked: Great internal space, the staff were very helpful, it was safe and secure, and overall I don't have anything bad to write.

Disliked: Nothing noteably bad about the property and I'd happily stay here again if I am visiting Milan. It's easy to get to from the main train station and then also to the main centre of Milan by the metro trains (cheap)

Liked: Very close to the subway

Disliked: Wifi is only available in the common area which is very inconvenient. The bathroom lighting is too dim and there is no where to hang clothes in there. We informed the owner but he said he was too busy to fix it as the hostel is fully booked ever since it was opened. The shower was broken, most of the water comes out from the hose instead of the shower head.

25 August 2013

Liked: Quiet and peaceful and close to the metro

Disliked: The heat was unbearable when they turned off the air-conditioning (which was for most of the day), and many of my roommates woke up drenched in sweat because it was simply too hot to sleep. Check in took ages because they had overbooked. Wasn't much of an atmosphere, but I suppose that's because many travelers are only in Milan as a transit point.
