3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Basic, unfriendly vibe

Basically fine, good for one night but not much more. To access the front door you have to go through an underground carpark which doesn't feel very safe or secure later at night. The communal area is a scattering of damaged tables and chairs arranged randomly in a concrete yard. The rooms are not locked, guests aren't given a key, so make sure you bring a padlock to secure your belongings! Close to a metro stop which can take you to the nicer parts of town. Don't think I'd return!

    5/5 Excellent

    I was in Milan for a few days to sightsee and needed somewhere convenient and local to the city. The staff were friendly and went to great lengths to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I stayed in a room with five other beds and lockers were provided to keep my belongings safe.

    Pros: Less than a five minute walk to the metro. Helpful and friendly, multilingual staff on hand 24/7. Safe.

    Cons: The bathrooms, although clean, were a little old in superficial appearance.
