Liked: Really friendly and helpfull staff. Bathrooms were properly cleaned everytime I used them. 15 min walk to nearby metro station or 2 min walk to bus 60/73 to centre of Milan.

Disliked: A bit noisy my last night; people arriving at the hostel at midnight, people coming home from drinks at 1 etc. But hey, that's part of sleeping in a hostel ;)

Liked: The hotel was fairly close to everything; train station was only a bus ride away, supermarkets and restaurants were within walking distance.

Disliked: There were only two bathrooms, one of which was not kept very clean. Drain kept on clogging and only got worse. Air conditioning would have been nice since Milan was extremely hot and humid during the length of our stay. Also, extra charge for linen (not including towels) seemed strange. You would think you are paying for linens on your bed when you book at a hotel...

Liked: It was quite peaceful during my stay and the people running the place were fine. Though very basic, there was some means of heating one's food.

Disliked: I was worried on arrival, as the gate was locked, no answer to bell or info but fortuntely, they responded at 2pm. Ventilation in the corridor and big bathroom was no-existent and lighting was poor there too.

Liked: The bed was comfortable and the room was really cozy. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Very close to a bus stop so you will be able to reach the city but walking is an option too! Not too far from the Duomo and really close to the supermarket!

Disliked: The kitchen didn't have a stove so cooking a meal might be difficult. That's all!

Liked: This was a very small hostel and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: I thought I was getting a 6 person mixed room but I ended up in a two person room with a male (I am female). Not a dislike for me though as we got along well. It appears all bedrooms are like this.
