In a city of trendy shopping arcades and glorious Gothic cathedral spires, priceless artworks and taste bud-tingling risotto kitchens, it's easy to see why you might want to save a few euros on accommodation. Cue hostels in Milan, which can be found wedged into the Gucci-touting blocks of the cool Quadrilatero della moda, between the cobbled lanes of enchanting Brera district, or around the bustling streets by Milan Centrale. You can pick between multi-bed dorms and stripped-down double rooms. You can go for places with unique design features – a centuries-old fireplace here, industrial-chic interiors there. And you can enjoy a whole load of extras that are unique to hostels in Milan, whether that's a youthful backpacker atmosphere or a shared kitchen for cooking your own bouts of Italian cuisine.

Hostels in Milan – the main features

Hostels in Milan are just like hostels anywhere else in Italy, in that they offer arguably the best rates of any type of accommodation in town. However, there's certainly something to be said for the arty creativity and eye for design of the more boutique hostels in this northern city. Like the stylish haute fashion outlets that beckon in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, they have an edgy style that's summed up by exposed-brick walls and bohemian bookcases. Those stays typically offer a mix of dormitory rooms and doubles, meaning they are great for both solo globetrotters and couples after a little extra privacy. Other hostels in Milan come with a lacing of Italian charm. They spill into leafy gardens and patios, touting breakfasts consisting of coffee, juice and cannoli.

More than anything, hostels in Milan look after the bare basics that you should need for any city break. Luggage storage rooms, lockers, clean bathrooms and free WiFi all usually come as standard, and it's also normal to find kitchen facilities for those nights in on the home-cooked pasta. Other hostels go above and beyond. Choose those, if you're keen to join local bar crawls through buzzy Brera or organised walking tours down to the soaring spires of the Duomo.

Planning your travels with hostels in Milan

Hostels in Milan should make it easy to put together a truly unforgettable break to the urban jewel of northern Italy. Somewhere like the Ostello Bello is a case in point. Not only are you bound to be wowed by the sheer wealth of curious trinkets and antiques in its offbeat common area, but you'll also be just a whisker away from the regal rooms of the medieval Renaissance-style Sforzesco Castle – home to masterworks by da Vinci, no less. There's an enchanting Gothic feel to the private rooms at the Babila Hostel, which occupies a centuries-old building near the glitzy boutiques and stylish cafe-bars of the fashion quarter. The Malpensa Fiera Milano Hostel, meanwhile, is a good suburban alternative, which offers a base on the way to the romantic towns, sparkling waters and rising Alpine peaks of Lake Como.
