Liked: There was a staff member at the hostel 24/7, which was convenient. Also, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful (though it did help that we were able to speak Spanish to communicate with them better). The hostel is very safe, which was also another plus.

Disliked: None

Liked: The location was great for sure. Close to some good streetcar lines that are linked well to the downtown area.

Disliked: the extra hidden fees for linens (4 euros) and towels (2 euros). Of course you need to have linens so why not just include it in the price? The atmosphere is...well there is no atmosphere, I don't know who would give this place a good rating besides the location. For the price in Milan, i didn't expect a lot, but even with my lowered expectations I was thoroughly disappointed.

Liked: I stayed in the dorm for 3 nights. There were 7 clothes hangers plus 3 hooks enough for everyone. IKEA rug and side table. Large individual lockers enough to store all your stuff. Free access to mini fridge. Sofa and cable TV in communal area. Two spacious shared bathrooms with free soaps and handwash. Hostel is located in a residential area and you can get a local life feel. Two supermarkets nearby. Security gate downstairs always locked and security door too. No metro station close by but the bus comes every 5 minutes that get you to the nearest metro station, ie, San Babila, in 20 minutes.

Disliked: No mosquito repellent in summer! Please tell the hostel to buy some plug-in repellents!! Bring your own or you might be eaten alive! No laundromat nearby!! I searched for a whole morning! Handwash is ok just not used to it.

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.
