Ostello Bello is a central hostel where you can either stay a few days or just have an aperitivo. It is famous in Milan because it is nice; cheap and very well situated (at 5 min by feet from the duomo). It has more than 12 500 likes on facebook!
The people who hold it have been travelling all over the world and staying in different hostels. They wanted to create a multicultural place where travelers and visitors feel good.
I personally went there just for the aperitivo. The choice is very limited but you can eat well and have a drink for 5 euro. There are often some concerts.
It is a small place; often very crowd. The ambiance is relaxed; people go there to meet friends and have a good moment.
About the hostel, the rooms and common areas have a free Wifi access; there is a private bathroom in every room and air conditioning in the rooms and common areas. The breakfast is included in the price and you can either sleep in dorms or reserve a private room.
The actuality: they won in December 2012 the Best Atmosphere WorldWide Award.
