Fernando Rodríguez Córdova thinks…

"It is located 10 minutes walking for a metro station, so access is not difficult at all, and is in a very quiet neighborhood, so you can get a very good rest. The private room was all right, and I…"

Liked: All in all it was not bad, roommates were very friendly) If you insist on what you are asking, the staff will make it (accepting cards especially). The advantage of this hotel is that there is a supermarket 2 blocks from it, it is rather close to the shopping street, rather clean and cheap. It is located in a calm part of Milan, so you can sleep quite well.

Disliked: They don't want to accept cards although they can. There is no kitchen

Liked: car parking for 10 euro per day/night. 24 hour service. ok location. 5 minute walk to the metro. Cheap fast food like kebab, falafel, panini, McDonalds and the like in the neighborhood.

Disliked: The standard is very poor. No electrical outlet in the room and a TV without power. The lamp above the bed did not work. Dirty, cramped and rather unpleasant Hostel. Cracks and holes in the walls. Much is broken or not working. General unhygienic and only one shared toilet and shower for all the hotel guests

Liked: hotel Ambra is a nice place and it is very easily reachable from Central train station. It s just ten minutes walking from underground station. Linen and room was perfectly clean. It s not a hostel so dont expect a hostel atmosphere. However it s a great value for money. I plan to stop there once again.

Disliked: there was a small mistake in description how to get there. So dont get off on the second stop of Via Porpora but on the third. That was the only bad thing

Liked: Nothing to sat

Disliked: There are just 3 bathrooms for like a lot of people, and one it was a broken, other had no lights, os its better to take your shower at night. On the website its not really clear if you can have breakfast or not, because its written starting from 30 euros, but its 30 euros per night. The location its not very good also, and if there is a strike on the metro, its horrible. In Italy all hostels are expensive and dont have anything in special, so its better to pay a little more and stay in a better place.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and the room was clean and modern. There's a common room downstairs which has a tv. A pretty quiet hostel, but with a really good atmosphere!

Disliked: The bathroom was fine at the beginning of the stay but there were wet towels and bathmats in there and the floor was soaked after one night there, and it didn't get any better over the stay.

Liked: the location was decent and laDonna the lady at the reception was a wonderful person.

Disliked: i had booked a female dorm at the hostel. The common bathroom was dirty, the toilet did not have a seat and the shower was barely big enough for a kid aged 5 years. and this is not an exxageration. also in my room, there was no fan. so in the summer, if you leave the window open mosquitos, insects, flies will enter your room, but if u close it u sufocate and die..because the temperature was a good 25-30 degrees at night and there was no portable fan let alone an air conditioner.

Liked: Breakfast included

Disliked: If you come late to this hostel, be aware. I recommend you to call there before arriving. I send an e-mail in advance that we will be late, but still we had only one bed instead of two. That wasn't a nice surprise.
