Hi! Ostello Milano Reviews

Dangerous to stay for a girl

The location is fine. I personally dislike their toilet. They said the toilet is newly renovated but it is so dirty and smelly. It is so noisy at night as well. There are people who knocked the door and laughed loudly in the corridor in the middle of the night as if no one was sleeping at night. It is so dangerous to stay there if you are traveling alone and if you are a GIRL!! I saw a guy entered the female's toilet as if that is normal. And one guy purposely touched my body when I passed by. It was the worst day for me for the whole trip to Italy when staying in this hostel.

Old style hostel with renovations

in july 2012 there are some renovation works to prepare the hostel for the 2015 international fair. It's a building of 1951 and rooms and services are the same in the 60 years of its life. In the basement there is the laundry and the dining room, in which is served the breakfast buffet between 7,30-9,45. In the ground floor the reception, some computers and the common room with TV and free wifi service. Dorm rooms are very poor and WC and showers are of the 50s. Rooms in front of viale salmoiraghi are very noisy for the traffic.


Bad location, good hostel

I really liked this hostel. The location sucks, as has been noted, so if you're into nightlife, it's not the place for you, but I found the rooms very spacious, the beds comfy, the bathrooms clean and modern, and the breakfast ample for a hostel. Only complaints are the loud slamming of lockers at all hours of the night.


Warning: Dangerous for your health

We arrived in the evening. Baby-doll prostitutes lined the streets, and pimps and drug dealers hung out on hostel property right by the front door. Although we'd prepaid for the hostel, after examining the room, we decided not to stay. As we were leaving, a prostitute brought a customer into the building. We never felt safe -- in fact, we didn't even wait for a bus or the subway, but caught the first cab back into the city.


Basic and cheap

I've stayed here three times. Never seen any bedbugs. You get two keys -- one for the door of the room and one for your locker (you also get a lock). They're pretty close to a metro station and there's a supermarket and a cheap (but small) internet place nearby. You can get in during the night, there's no curfew. What I don't like about this hostel is the toilets and the staff. But it's a cheap place to stay.


Do not stay here.

I unfortunately did not listen to the advice of my guidebook when they said not to stay here unless you have to. This is in a very bad neighborhood not near to anything you wan to see in Milan. There are hookers lining the streets at night and walking alone was not a pleasant experience as you have men yelling things at you from their cars as they drive by. You'd be better off sleeping on a bench in the train station.


This multistory 1960s hostel has never been renovated, and is full of students on bus tours. It is big, loud, dirty, and the women's toilets were practically unusable (standing only). I was there in the weekend, where the halls were filled with loud drunk and sick drunk people. There were only cold showers at any time of the day, and no electrical outlets in the rooms. Location was ok, just a few minutes away from a subway. Street was lined with prostitutes at night.

excellent Hostel I have ever stayed. very convenient for airplane travelers as QT8 station is on the line of cadrona, starting point of Malpensa express. good breakfast, individual keys, luggage store, nice two bedsheets, and a blanket. I wanted to see the bedbugs but could not find them. stayed there twice and will definitely stay again.

MILAN: a city for all to admire, understand, and savour. This enchanting provincial capital of Lombardy never stops amazing the visitor. And the Piero Rotta Hostel, located about 30 km from the Helvetian border is an excellent base to discover the secrets of the splendid Duomo, the masterpieces of the Brera Gallery, the artistic-cultural jewels of the Scala Museum or the Ambrosiana Gallery, and the evocative Sforzesco Castle. There is also the possibility for daytrips to the Certosa di Pavia, the Abbazia di Chiaravalle, to Sabbioneta, to Mantua, and the lakes. Within the hostel's neighbourhood, there is a swimming pool, tennis courts, and jogging tracks.

• From any one of Milan's 3 International Airports, take the Express/Shuttle Coach waiting outside the Terminal Buildings marked Milan. This will drop you at Milan's Central Railway Station (roughly a 1hr ride). From there you will be joined by all those arriving by train, head undergound for the Metro. From Milano Centrale's Green line stop, go as far as Cadorna (direction of train Abbiategrasso) and then take the Red line (be sure the direction of the train is Rho Fiera), getting off at the stop called QT8 on Linea 1 (Red line) of Milan's Underground system. Exit in the direction of "Youth Hostel " Straight on for 150 metres. The hostel is on the corner of Via Calliano.
• For those arriving by bus (number 91) get off at the penultimate stop on the route, namely 'Elia Stuparich'. Exit Piazza Stuparich, taking Viale Salmoiraghi and the hostel is on the left, 50 metres on.
• For those coming by car. Exit the motorway at Lampugnano or Viale Certosa and following signs for Fiera, Piazzale Lotto or Stadio San Siro will take you in the general direction of the Youth Hostel.
• By Taxi, inform the driver of your destination as Ostello della Gioventù, the address is Viale Salmoiraghi number 1 (numero uno).
• Many hostel/tourist guides give the address as Via Martino Bassi 2. Closed for years now to motor vehicle traffic, Via Bassi is merely a small road behind the hostel, useful only to the postman.
