The Hostelz.com Review

Although Milan Hostel Emmy is cheap, it should only be visited in desperate situations. It is old and rundown and would not be suggested.

The Location

The hostel is far from any tourist desk, attractions, and sights but is very close to a metro station. From the station it's only about ten minutes to any city center location. The hostel is located on the fourth floor of an older building, accessible by old elevator or stairs and the website directions are very easy to follow. Within one block are a restaurant, coffee shop, parking, and supermarket.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The beds themselves are clean and comfortable and staff comes each day to remake them. Bunk beds and single beds are available, but beware -- they don't have ladders or railings! Each room has a desk, chair, and closet but no lockers or safes. When leaving rooms, be sure to lock the door behind you. A positive aspect to the rooms is that there are a sufficient amount of well-located plug-ins that are easily accessible even if you are on top or bottom bunk.

The bathrooms could could be much better -- upon first arrival, it was a shock. With only about six rooms on a small floor, with six beds each, is one bathroom. The bathroom has a toilet, bidet, and bathtub. Although the pressure and water is satisfactory, the shower head is held up with tape and a furnace/hot water heater is located within the bathroom. In each bedroom lies a sink (which is handy for brushing teeth), mirror (great for putting on makeup), and a small corner glass shower that's see-through, so you must shower when roommates are absent. Neither towels nor a blow dryer are provided.

Common Spaces

Other than an old couch against the wall in the small hallway, there is no common area. The kitchen is a microwave and kettle placed on a stool. Breakfast is provided and delivered to your room upon request. This is a very quiet hostel with barely any travelers.

Summary

Overall the hotel is very cheap yet disappointing. Payment for linen is necessary and the front desk has no maps or information of any sort. A deposit for the room key is also mandatory upon arrival, The staff speak minimum English but seem to be friendly. For open-minded travelers who aren't picky, a one-night stay would be tolerable.
