My experience at Babila was great. I received more than I thought. The staff are very kind and generous. Stefano has been great even in unexpected situations. The tasks are simple and you will have free time to get to know Milano, which is beautiful! I recommend this experience. Thanks Babila! I felt at home. Arrivederci ! :)

The experience in Babila it was awesome :) i spend lovely nights with my roomates, and the staff is really cool, humble, gentle and really social :) I met a lot of beautiful souls and it became for me like a family enviroment. The hostel is really cool as well, with a beautiful living room, where you can watch a movie, study, and there's the terrace as well, where you can share some drink and meet interesting people.

Great experience! The hostel is clean, organised and in the middle of Milan, near to everything. Staff are friendly and always ready to help. I highly recommend this place since you can travel around Italy, there are many trains going everywhere. It’s really easy to meet people here, I made so many friends that I gonna carry with me for life. Thanks a lot for this great experience! Best regards, Gustavo Koerich
