5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A very good, modern and still kinda new looking hostel, with comfy beds and nice towels provided. The breakfast that’s included is pretty awesome too, with ham, cheese, pastries, bread, condiments, cakes, yogurt, fruits and coffee and tea selection. The fully equipped kitchen is also a plus for me. Location is good, about 10-15min walk from the Duomo area, but metro and tram options are also around. Ideal for those flying in to/out from Linate Airport. The airport bus (nr 73) stops just 4mins away from the hostel. I’d be happy to go back if I’m visiting in Milan again. :)

Super clean, comfy bedding, bathroom in your room is fantastic for a hostel. Come with towels and a lock for the locker, honestly everything you could hope for! Close to the duomo too.

Come for the conditions, stay for the people
Location is more then decent: short enough walk to Piazza di Duomo, but not the best position for public transport. I wish it was very close to a metro station or to Centrale to have good connection with the airport, but it's hard to tick every box. Location looked good, rooms in good condition and clean, mine even had an en suite which was really nice (shower gel and hair dryer included + towel free of charge). Didn't stay long enough to take advantage of it, but it's great knowing they have a laundry. Breakfast was included and quite good. I really recommend it because conditions are good and the crowd seemed very youthful, interesting and fun to be with. It's one of those hostel expériences everyone talks about, where you have a chance to meet cool people and make friends.
