ATMOSPHERE: our 5 floors building is not only a place to sleep, it's a place to live! The ground floor and the basement, where you find the Reception, the Bar and the Lounge, are open to everyone until 1am, so you have the opportunity to meet people from Milano and feel like a local in our city. That’s where we organize cultural events and any other kind of activities, as live music every tuesday and DjSet every wednesday. The other 3 floors of the hostel, with rooms, guests’ kitchen and terraces, are acoustically isolated from the bar and are accessible only by our guests to make sure they can spend their holidays resting and in a quiet and relaxed environment. Ostello Bello, your home away from home!
SAFETY: every guest has his own locker in his room and we will provide you with padlocks for free as you check in. You can also use a safe deposit box at the reception for your “small” value items (laptop, money, passports…). To facilitate your check-in and check-out you can use our free luggage storage. Our lift and the stairs door leading to the rooms can be opened only with your own keycard, so you are guaranteed that only guests can get to the rooms & terraces floors.
CLEANLINESS: As you check-in you will be showed around all the hostel; by doing this we can check and verify everyday (about 30 times per day) the cleanliness and the maintenance works in the rooms and in the common areas. We are very meticulous and serious about this, so if you ever notice something to fix (but you won't), please let us know!
