Combo Milano Hostel in Review
If you’re planning a trip to Milan, we can’t recommend this hostel enough. But wait, don’t take our word for it just yet!
We’ve written an honest in-depth review for you below to help you decide if this is the hostel for you, dear reader.
To ease you in slowly and get the exciteable vibes flowing, check out this short video that highlights the wonders of Combo.
Combo Milano is a 5 Star Hostel in Milan, Italy because…
1. Sustainability & Design go hand in hand
Alright folks, Combo is set to impress when it comes to their sustainability efforts and design. The two merge perfectly together, so we get to kill two birds with one stone here!
First off, Combo Milano is set inside a typical Milanese banister house… and this one happens to have an absolutely gorgeous inner courtyard.
The exterior is painted a warm orange, and inside the bright colours will boost your mood for sure.
As for the eye-catching furniture? They have been tailor-made and sourced from local Italian artisans.
“A careful selection of materials and bright colors helps to create a unique environment consistent with the identity of the property.”
When you’re sipping coffee in the courtyard you’ll feel like you’re getting a taste of old Italy. Go indoors and enjoy modern, hip amenities that sparkle with cleanliness and yet still keep that homely vibe.
Moving into the bedrooms, we have to say that we’re super impressed by the custom-made sturdy bunkbeds.
The little shelf tucked behind the privacy wall is certainly an added bonus!
The overall size of this building provides big windows, lots of light and shared spaces that never feel cramped. Basically, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your own space if you need to.
2. More than just a simple hostel
So, no doubt you’re wondering what makes Combo unique?
The hint is in the name, actually.
Combo = an awesome combination of cool stuff to do within the walls of a Milanese banister house.
Oh yes, Combo is so much more than just four walls that offers a cheap bed to sleep in.
Combo Milano is part hostel…
Part art gallery
Part restaurant (plus a communal kitchen)
Part radio station and
All in all, we’d say the team have it spot on when they say:
“This is an eternal sanctuary which, in this city of constant noise and motion, offers respite and renewal.”
An important detail is that the radio station is actually Combo created, broadcasting music from the hostel all day long. Cool!
The onsite greenhouse and courtyard are unique places to spend some time during your stay. In fact, they happen to be just a few steps away from the canals at the heart of the Navigli district.
3. Those relaxed kinda vibes
When it comes to putting everything in place so that the travelling life is super easy, we haven’t come across a hostel that does better than Combo!
You’ll settle in super quickly thanks to 24-hour self check-in, 24/hr reception and laundry services onsite.
Because really, we all know how much easier it is to relax once you’ve got the essentials like that sorted, right?
That means more energy is leftover for the fun stuff!
“Combo is an authentic and characteristic place revitalized and transformed in a vibrant meeting spot for travelers, locals, creative and curious.”
Whether you’re a solo traveller, exploring with your lover or on vacation with your friend, Combo Milano is well set up to suit most traveller types.
Work on your computer in the greenhouse, meet new friends in the common area or grab a drink (or three) in the bar at night.
Every month they host musical, artistic or cultural events open to the public – a wonderful opportunity to get in touch with the local creative community.
4. Vibrant Staff
The staff at Combo Milano are young and multilingual and have a passion for their city.
And luckily for you, reception happens to be open 24/7 so there’s always someone available to advise you on hostel activities and events in the city!
Located right one of the most liveliest areas of Milan you can be sure there’s alway something to chat with the staff about, so don’t be shy!
Our Combo Milano Review in a Nutshell
So, what’s our verdict of Combo Milano? We give it 5 stars! (Was that a bit too obvious?)
Surely by now you’re also convinced that this hostel is well worth a visit. I mean, it stands out as special for many reasons.
The courtyard is by far the highlight and wonderful welcome to the property.
Go inside and you’re met with great work spaces, social areas, a restaurant with food to die for and top notch staff.
Did we forget anything? Oh yeah, a top notch location, too!
See you there!
