Image by Booking.com

A breath of fresh air in Milan's stiffly suited centre, this is the best hostel in town (and hands down the most social). Entrance is through its lively bar-cafe, where you're welcomed with a complimentary drink. Beds are in bright mixed dorms or private rooms. It also has a kitchen, a sunny terrace, and a basement lounge with board games and table football.

Weekly events, including quiz nights, poetry slams and language exchanges, offer a great way to mingle with and meet locals. Prices include breakfast and dinner.
