A very welcoming and fantastic place! Cheerful, clean and hospitable
Le staff est vraiment sympa, on se sent tout de suite à l'aise. Le dîner et le petit déjeuner sont inclus dans la réservation. Même le garde manger est rempli pour ceux qui préfèrent cuisiner. Les lits sont confortables, il y a une lampe et une prise électrique pour chaque lit. Seul bémol au niveau des sanitaires. Il n'y en a pas assez pour tout le monde.
Great atmosphere, Great staff, clean, easy to mis with other backpackers. Thank you.
Friendly staff Well located hostel Clean and comfortable rooms Good breakfast
The hostel is ideal for visiting Milan, the cleanliness is required and the value for money! We will come back with pleasure!
My stay at the Babila Hostel was nice. It is ideally located, 10 minutes from the central square. The premises are clean and well maintained. The atmosphere is nice. The welcoming staff.
The Babila Hostel turned out to be, even just for one night, an excellent alternative to an exaggeratedly luxurious and over-priced hotel: it has everything needed to meet the needs of customers. The location is great and the staff very competent. I highly recommend it.
Très bonne auberge dans laquelle nous avons passé deux nuits. Aspect très design et « chill ». Beaucoup d’équipement à disposition : cuisine sur le rooftop avec terrace, bars, petit dej, laverie, salle de jeux etc. Les chambres sont très propres, avec des prises à chaque lits et relativement calmes et les cadenas pour les casiers sont fournis gratuitement. Salles de bain très propres également. Le personnel est très agréable et consciencieux pour que le séjour se passe au mieux. Je ne pense pas qu’elle soit située au meilleur emplacement qui soit mais pour quelques jours ça fait largement l’affaire. Quelques petits bémols cependant : les casiers sont trop petits pour une grosse valise ou un sac (dans notre cas 40L), pas de climatisation dans les chambres, on est obligés d’ouvrir les fenêtres et malgré la moustiquaire nous avons été envahis par les moustiques... pas d’ascenseur (auberge sur trois étages, je me demande comment elle peut être accessible pour une personne handicapée) et la porte de notre salle de bain ne fermait pas.

The hostel is well located a few stations from the Duomo and other tourist attractions. The staff are super friendly and the premises are very clean. It makes you want to stay. I recommend.
Recommended for those travelers who want to meet the world and people, in a very pleasant environment, with good treatment from the staff and varied and free activities. The shared rooms are correct, although with no privacy and with small lockers where there is no room for luggage!
Youth hostel nice and tastefully decorated. However being there in December, we were very cold in the common places, really a shame because it restricted us our moments in the living rooms. Shared bathroom and proper dorms. Friendly staff available at any time of the day or night, but speak only English! Theme nights every night. Well located hostel, close to public transport and restaurants.
The place is great for a few days getaways. The site is very beautiful and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. There are also many activities to do and the atmosphere in the common areas is very good. The people at the reception are very friendly. Highly recommended.
I couldn't sleep because of bed bugs. My back hearted me a lot it was red and it was scratching. I couldn't sleep for 3 days.
A bit outside Milan but very accessible by metro and tram, we had a pleasant stay. Staff attentive, helpful, friendly. This place is frequented by families, workers and young people. Only concern ... the mosquitos but leaving the windows closed and using the air conditioning, everything was ok.
Money well spent on this one. You get more that what you pay for. Its very affordable and very clean. Convenient location, with awesome staff! Pretty clean and comfortable. Great atmosphere, laid back. Thumbs up! Keeps it up!
The place is basic but very clean. The rooms are bright with comfortable beds. Great value, with good location.

Madama Hostel is well connected with the main tourist attractions in city.
Very nice stay in this warm and well located hostel near the central station. The staff is very welcoming and the infrastructure adapted.
The hostel offers a very good comfort: kitchen with free food for those who wish to cook, television corner for the laziest. I highly recommend for those who would like to come to Milan.
We really like to stay in Ostello Bello Grande, we really recommend to stay there !!!
The hostel is easy to find, close to a metro station, which gives access to the center of Milan easily and quickly. The staff at the hostel is very welcoming, the decor is cool, and there are regular events. The private rooms are spacious and clean, the bathroom is also large and well equipped. The only negative points are the almost nonexistent sound insulation, and the lack of shutters or at least opaque curtains, which make the night not particularly relaxing after a long day of sightseeing.
The hostel is located about 1/2 hour walk from the center but is well served by tram and metro. The atmosphere is original thanks to a decoration that mixes modern equipment such as Clim or USB plugs in the rooms with furniture "recycling" The bedding is of good quality and common facilities such as sanitary and kitchen are very clean. We see that everything has been arranged for the comfort and well being of the clientele. The dining room and bar are often full and the clientele is local as well as passing, and the staff is active all day long, from early in the morning until late at night to serve everyone in a happy hubbub . For things that can be improved, from a good baguette to breakfast (but we can not find it easily in Milan) and better soundproof windows in the rooms. In any case, I will come back to this hostel during my next visits to Milan and I recommend it.
Hostel very well located next to the metro. Decor and atmosphere very nice. The rooms are spacious and pleasant. Breakfast and evening meals offered.
This was my first ever stay at a hostel and I loved it! The place was awesome, the facilities were great and the staff were incredible! Everyone is so friendly. The hostel is not in the centre of Milan but it’s very easy to use the metro to get around, and a station is very close by. Would definitely stay there again!
Genuinely had one of the best times in this hostel. The atmosphere is always so friendly and upbeat and is constantly an environment where you do not want to leave. The staff are so helpful and lovely, offering guests anything they need. The location is so close to everything! Me and my flat mate booked this so last minute and have met some trying lovely people and are arranging to come back so soon! Thankyou Madama.
