Liked: Good staff and secure! Facilities are so clean! Breakfast is so nice! So i can't believe this is free!

Disliked: Location is not good. But if you use metro, you can go everywhere. You can buy the 24 hours ticket, only 4,5euro!

Liked: This hostel was appealing due to its quirky decor and decent location. Breakfast was also included in the price though finishes at 9:30 on the dot (we went down at 9:34 and they were packing up), the beds were comfy and they had wifi (though this didn't reach our room).

Disliked: Wifi didn't reach the room we stayed in and breakfast closed too early.

Liked: I liked the location before it allows us to know a different part of Milano, but with good transportation services to downtown. You can go either by bus or by metro.

Disliked: The banging of the door of the stairway leading to the upper dorms. It is completely ridiculous. Anyone would immediately change the closing system of that door used by so many people at the hostal. If you are on first floor, don t expect to sleep early or get up late. The door will keep you awake... Also on first floor, tv noise can be disturbing. But Milano is expensive and this hotel is an alternative to save money...

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.

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.
