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: Helpful staff, good lounge area, breakfast included (though only simple) and lots of power points in the room :)

Disliked: Not much - bathroom cleanliness good have been better but that often depends in roommates as well. Also, have stayed in better hostels for less money.

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.

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.

Liked: quite location, it was good to us because we travelled to and from the Central Station, though from the Duomo for example it's quite far the bathroom was renovated and clean

Disliked: Bring your paddlock, you'll need it for the locker The air conditioning was constantly buzzing and noisy during the night as well, it was disturbing, but if you really sleepy and tired I guess it's not a problem the breakfast was ok, however there was just sweet choice of food....

Liked: Breakfast is good. Day receptionists are nice, night one not so much- he is difficult to speak to. Self facility is well equipped,no stove but has oven,fridge,utensils, sink, and toaster. Atmosphere is good. Would recommend to stay.

Disliked: Night receptionist. Be aware of €2 tourist tax per night. I was not aware of this felt like i was getting robbed-which is actually my own fault for skimming the info. Bathroom was only clean the day i arrived, ran out of soap and toilet paper. Mosquitoes in the room. Room gets hot and a/c does nothing. There is a timer where it turns off when everyone else is sleeping and turns back on at 5 am. So you end up sleeping in your sweat without realizing. Location, must buy metro ticket to get to the city 1.5€ oneway €4.5 24h pass and €8.2 for 48h And there isnt much to see but a day trip is worth it.
