Zebra Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

What is the best way to have fun and meet new friends in a different country? Zebra Hostel, of course! Our hostel is the perfect place for taking a low-cost holiday in Milan. We take care of your entertainment and we’re committed to getting you the best vacation ever.

Located in the centre of Milan, we’re just 15 minutes’ walk from the city centre and the Duomo. Thanks to the tram and metro network which is close to the hostel, you can easily go anywhere. Nearby public transport include the metro Yellow Line, 9-16 tram and bus number 77.

We have a large and colourful common area where you can spend time having fun playing ping-pong, billiards, foosball and more. In the hall there's a TV but it's not used much because most of our guests who stop in town prefer to spend time making friends with each other and meeting people from around the world, thus creating a pleasant and multicultural atmosphere.

For anyone who wants to drink a few drinks, the bar is always open (24hrs) and there are several wooden tables and chairs where you can comfortably sit. If you want to relax, there's a relaxation area where you can sit on sofas and chat, listen to good music or just read a book.

The reception is open 24hrs and our young and multilingual staff is always available to meet all queries. If you have problems getting orientated in the city they can help you by providing information on public transport, places and maps of the city.

Our prices include bed linen, personal lockers and a tasty breakfast. We offer mixed male and female dormitories with six beds, 12 beds or 24 beds, respectively; each dorm has an electrical outlet and individual reading lights at every six beds.

Returning to the hostel you might be hungry, but we have thought of that...we’ve built a large, fully equipped kitchen that you can use at any time of day.

With our free Wi-Fi internet, you can connect with your mobile phones or other devices in total freedom. For those who have other needs, we have several computer stations equipped with web cams, headsets and printers.

If you've forgotten essential items such as towels, hair dryer, lock, patch or toothpaste, you can buy it directly from us.

If you're driving you can park in our car park for only €15 per day, with 24-hour access. You can also rent a bike from us and come back anytime you want because the hostel is open 24 hours.

We care about your tranquillity; thus, the whole structure has a good security system that ensures you spend your nights in total relaxation.

If all this were not enough, you can also leave your luggage at the front desk all day ... Free!

What are you waiting for?! Enjoy a young and friendly atmosphere at the lowest possible price. Our rooms start at ' 18 (per person per night) including all our advantages.

The surrounding area is well equipped with restaurants, bars and supermarkets. As well as this, the area is well-provided-for with shopping; within minutes you can walk to the city centre, where you can find many local places that are a meeting place for young people.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My wife & I had a very brief stay here, for one night only but it was very comfortable. We had a little difficulty finding the place as we'd arrived in Milano midnight, but it's not that far from the station via subway.

The staff was very polite, friendly & helpful. Our beds were clean & comfy. Breakfast was minimal but just enough, typical of such hostels!

The best thing about this place was the common room - computers, video games, board games, music corner, ping pong table!

All in all, definitely great value for money.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The management of this hostel was very bad. Firstly, i booked a nigh in this hostel through travellerspoint but after that they send me a mail to cancel my booking due to overbooking problem. It would be very unfair for me as i paid a 10% deposit. After that they accepted my booking for a higher price of €35 per night and the rooms was horrible. It was a 40 ppl rooms with no powerpoint source and only 1 central light.

I accepted the offer and they made another mistake by sending me an invoice with a banlance due of €18. However, when i reached the hostel, I was required to pay €70, which is inconsistent with the invoice. All they said was it was a mistake.

In order to have good reputation for your hostel, it's very important to be responsible for all the mistakes that u've done. Once it's ok but not twice.
I do not recommend travellers to stay in this hostel and ruin your whole vacation.

One of hostels with worst rooms I have ever been into.

The central common area isn't really that bad, decent place to sit down, fine kitchen, fairly clean, free internet... but thats all what is good about this hostel.

Rooms are horrid. The dorm rooms are basically one big hall and corridor (yes, there are beds too) separated with cardboard panels (looked like they were probably picked up somewhere in the junkyard), so you have to walk through one 'room' to another. The floor has been cleaned maybe twice since past century, musty walls with stucco falling off. If you want to turn light off, you have to switch off whole floor through electrical fuse. Only few lockers. Sheets seemed pretty clean thought.
One sole electric outlet available for whole hostel isn't really enough. Same goes for bathroom!

Do not trust personnel with anything they 'guarantee' to you. We end up in completely different rooms than we had booked, and even if you are supposed to have separate room only for your group and staff assures you that it will stay that way (and that of course means you pay extra for it), two hours later they do not hesitate to stick other people in it.

If you have some other place to sleep in, stay away from this hostel...

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A hostel with a really layback atmosphere, easy to meet new people, nice to sit in the common room to drink a beer or read a book!
The facilities are basic, but okay. It's located near the city center, which for Milan is a real plus!
