Sleeping low cost in Milan is not difficult. An example? The Ostello Bello in Milan is a clean, fun and decidedly low cost hostel for sleeping and having fun.
Who said I would stay at Milan does it have to be a costly operation? Just know where to go!
In a small side street of Via Torino, a stone's throw from the Duomo, is theNice hostel, in name and in fact. A project born in 2011 by three young Milanese, who, after having traveled the length and breadth of the 5 continents, felt the need to create a reference point for young people passing through their city.
A hostel that not only offered “a cot to sleep on”, but a place where it was possible to exchange gossip and opinions between different nationalities.
The accommodation offer varies from dormitory from 8 to 6 people, each with private bathroom, up to the typical double room with private bathroom. Prices range from 30 to 40 euros: a great deal when compared with the average offer of hotels in the rest of the city.
The location is certainly one of the most attractive aspects, being located in a quiet street that allows you to reach some of the main tourist attractions in a minute: via Torino, the Duomo, the columns of San Lorenzo and the basilica of Sant'Ambrogio.
The staff consists of young students always available to satisfy customer requests and with a natural gift to make anyone who crosses the threshold of the hostel feel at home. In the morning an excellent breakfast is served to all guests.
This modern hostel is not only a comfortable base for young travelers, but it is also a point of reference for many young Milanese, who spend their evenings at the ground floor bar for cultural events, evenings with live music or simply for drinking a beer ataperitif in a welcoming environment and international.
Price, location and cleanliness: these are the strengths of the hostel, thanks to which in 2012 it was nominated best hostel in the world according to the popular site hostelworld.com.
For all students and young travelers looking for a nice and cheap place to stay in Milan or for those who want to experience the city in a different way, Ostello Bello is definitely "the place to be".
