This hostel is literally in the middle of nowhere. Its the second last stop on the metro line. It is also not easy to find-hidden in an old hospital complex with no signs! The rooms are okay, spacious, but youll have staff members walking in and out for no reason and the rooms arent cleaned everyday. There is a communal...

The beds are old hospital beds. The area is really remote with tons of misquitos. The grounds don't look like that picture. It isn't awful but I am still itching from the experience and I had a private room. Def find another option and use this as a last resort. The people with the 5 stars must be employees because...

Nice hostel just a few stops away from the city center. The staff was kind and most helpful, we asked for some advice on best spots to be visited in Milan and nice pubs and restaurants and the guy at the reception printed out some maps and explained us everything, he was so kind! The hostel was clean and quite...

An intimate hostel in a green park, out of the city noise, but very close to subway: only 15 minutes and you are in the centre. Everyone is kind and welcoming. My room was silent, confortable e clean. In addition there's a very good restaurant.

10 subway stops away from the center of town, this hostel located inside an old hospital for the mentally ill was the worst stop in the eurotrip me and 2 friends made. First off, if you're looking to have fun, this is the worst option possible for you. The hostel is empty most of the time, most of the staff...

I enjoyed the different environment in this re-purposed psychiatric hospital. I lived the kitchen, we cooked there one night, and it was a nice spot to hang out. The bathrooms and room seemed very clean. The location was not best, but it was not unmanageable, just bear in mind that you will be paying a couple metro tickets a day...

After getting severely lost attempting to find the hostel, it was a relief to finally find it. Located within an old psychiatric hospital, it is an interesting experience to stay here. The staff were friendly and spoke reasonable English - we had no communication misunderstandings. Our room was basic and mostly clean. The beds were old and rickety - seriously...

Unique experience, this hostel is located inside a psychic hospital so the timetable is limited and so is the people that are on the front desk. If you are going to stay only for a night is not recommended because is too far from the centre of milan... you have to get 02 types of metro and also a train...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Would you fancy sleeping in a park? Why not booking a hostel plunged in a lush green park and, maybe, having dinner a la carte at Jodok restaurant that suggests Italian dishes such as marinated anchovies, lamb ragout tagliolini, steak tartare, strawberry cheesecake... After dinner...Theatre shows! In June and July from Tuesdays to Sundays "Da Vicino Nessuno e normale" festival offers a review of the best Italian theatre productions: Teatro la Fortezza, Societas Raffaello Sanzio, le Albe... All this in one square mile! Strolling along alleys lit beautifully by garlands of lamps under linden trees, sycamores, centennial oaks... All this is Olinda! But that is not all... Come and meet Maria and Andrea who live all year round at the OstellOlinda and who share their life experiences with backpackers, tourists and actors. This is what we mean by an integrated hostel. A mix of different experiences. Actors, clowns, university students and teachers, adventurous backpackers, refugees and immigrants mingle themselves with persons who have been living in the past in psychiatric structures and who have a deep understanding of life and who gladly share their sympathy (for free!) You can also meet Roberto, Giovanni, Eva, Alessandra, Barbara and Davide of the reception or Pino and Marco of the housekeeping staff, all satisfied workers of "La Fabbrica di Olinda" a social firm that, from 1999 develops production activities and social economic structures to find employement for fragile and disadvantaged people. Besides, every Thursday you can enjoy an excellent aperitif with high quality live music with JODOK STORIES. You can find too a countryside corner in the city wandering about the urban vegetable gardens located in the park; among hens, chickens, rabbits and luxuriant medicinal plants at IL GIARDINO DEGLI AROMI. ... more   less
