Ostello Bello Grande, Milan, Italy
A fun and quirky hostel smack bang in the centre of Milan, within walking distance of the city's major sights. Interiors burst with character, with wacky wallpaper, mismatched furnishings and musical instruments hanging on the walls. The vibe is decidedly laidback, with young members of staff mingling with a local and international clientele seeking a lively venue offering cheap booze and hosting a great roster of events. Dorms and doubles are brightened up with lively splashes of colour (think wacky wallpaper and colourful cushions) and quirky little touches (vintage mirrors; Hollywood lights). Guests mingle in the kitchen, where complementary food is provided courtesy of the welcoming owners who know a thing or two about backpacking. You'll be hard pushed to find a better value spot in the heart of town.
We love the excellent, central location at an affordable price - a rare combo in Milan!
