Location is good but that's about it. The toilet was filthy looked like it hadn't been cleaned and there is no hand soap in bathroom so couldn't wash my hands. You only get 2 sheets so it was cold for sleeping. The shower looked gross. The locker hadn't been cleaned out from the previous guests so it was filled with...

Good location as it's close to the metro and in a nice area, the room was small, single beds not very comfortable, however the bathroom was decent, there was a locker and fridge and there was free wifi.

Very good location but for this price poor service. You have to pay 5 euro for towel and soap (soap!!!), 4 euro for luggage, 4 for hair dryer and ect. Room was very dark and cold, not cozy. The breakfast was included- coffee and croissant. I prefer to have towel and soap but don't have this breakfast

Ok... To rate this hostel with 5 stars would be only for the location. First of all the entrance to the hostel is horrible in my point of view, it looks like you are getting in to a prison, a small door with some hanging charts its not what you look for when you are trying to located an Hostel....

Pros: location is great (walkable to major city attractions, very close to a central metro line); clean; large and apparently secure lockers; very good cost benefit in general.

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
