Hostelz.com's Review
Music B&B Hostel is practical, clean, and fairly new -- not particularly warm or stylish (as one may expect when visiting Milan), but it does the job. It is located in a suburb outside of the center and you need to catch a tram and a metro line to get into the center. Be aware that the price advertised is not the final price and there is a hidden, non-optional, extra cost charged on arrival for linen. You can not use your own bedsheets/sleeping bag.

The Location

This place is not so easy to find, but once you find it the first time, it becomes simple. The most complicated part is finding Tram 5 from Piazza Duca D’Aosta, in front of Central Station. Central Station is a huge place, and most people there do not speak English. Once you arrive at Central Station, don't ask for Piazza Duca D’Aosta, because most people don't seem to know where that is. Instead ask for "tram chinque" which means tram 5 in Italian. Catch tram 5 going towards Niguarda and ask the driver to let you off at Piazza Istrita. They are friendly people generally speaking so they are happy to help. Once you are off, find number 16 of Via Comandini which is a nearby street. There is no computer to use (but there is Wi-Fi), but if you need one you can visit the internet cafe close by. There is also a nearby supermarket and cheap Turkish pizzerias nearby.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The bathrooms are very nice, new, and clean. The bedrooms however are not so amazing, and they really need to put some fly-screens over the windows as mosquitoes tend to get in and not let people sleep.

Common Spaces

There aren't really any common spaces except for the reception, where you also eat your breakfast. We do not see people socialising here except in the mornings during breakfast. There is also a small balcony on each floor.

Summary

If your main concern is the price, then this place does the job. It is clean and the staff are mostly helpful and friendly. If you are looking for atmosphere, however, this place isn't really ideal for that.
