Fair 4.0
Good, hot, customer service
The air conditioning was out in the middle of the heat wave. Luckily they were very understanding and provided refunds to those wishing to leave.

Good 6.0
Average hostel with nothing in particular that stands out other then the awful wifi and silly air conditioning fee for an A/C that was quite poor.

Good place to stay
This was a great hostel, friendly staff, nice rooms and near the metro. The man on reception actually upgraded me to a room on the ground floor since I had a giant suitcase with me. The room had less people and a private bathroom. The only issue I had was the common area. I had a roommate that snores horribly so I went to the lounge to watch a movie in the quiet. The night receptionist pretty much kicked me out and kept bothering me when I was quietly sitting in the corner watching a movie. I've never been to a hostel where I couldn't be in the lounge 24/7. Other than that it was fine

Fantastic. Welcoming stay
For the price can’t go wrong! Be aware of the 5 euro deposit and the 2 euro a night city tax on checking in. Communal area is lovely free pool table, darts and table football. Two large fridges and kitchen area to cook if want to save some money . Plenty of seats and music to add good atmosphere. Have to make your own bed but beds are comfy. No a/c in the rooms but plenty of fans so is bearable. Beds are standard metal bunk bed. And onsuitea are tidy and everything required. Bonus is the breakfast which is a continental with ha great selection to start the day. Connection to central Milan is 20 mins to central stations and doumo! Staff was friendly and couldn’t do enough for you.

Nice hostel in Milan
Hostel colours was a lovely hostel for the price. The man at concierge was super helpful and friendly. The rooms were nice, the common area was a great spot to get some planning done.

Just fine
It is quite good location closed to Metro that why i choose to stay. The breaktast was good. But the place is a bit warn out. The plug for electricity some are broken in my room and really high up and difficult to place. It said a private bath but beware you might be place in the room that no bathroom in the room. You need to come outside to use it. The look outside the hostel is remind me of prison. But overall, it is just ok but i might consider whether i would come back or not.

SUPER TASTY breakfast
GREAT experience! I'm deliberately avoided to book hostel close to Milano Centrale. Because those hostels, as a rule, is dirty and uncomfortable. Yes, Colour Hostel located a little bit away from Milano Centrale BUT: quiet area + 24h Reception (!) + SUPER TASTY breakfast + extremely clean + strong Wi-Fi + nearby located supermarket PENNY + train station Lambrate. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
