Hello Ostello Bello!

Morning gratitude for my hosts: if hostels received stars for service, the Ostello Bello in Milan would top the charts.  The underlying architecture is fine, but what they’ve done with it is a joy.

They have:
– a friendly two-level pub area open to the public, where the locals all come to drink and play guitar and play games. drinks at half the standard pub price
– balconies to relax w/ guests on the 2d and 3d floors, with space for a dozen people on each
– awesome creatures and figures painted along the walls and ceilings of the building and stairwells
– a handy surplus of power outlets (~10 per floor + 10 on the balconies) and wifi (4 access points for ~80 guests)
– a free drink when you arrive; homemade cakes every morning after breakfast

Visit if you can, and see for yourself 🏖️
