Hostels vs. Hotels, Episode 2 – Milan

Hostels vs. Hotels – Episode 2, Milan


Popularly known as the fashion and financial capital of Italy, Milan is the feature destination in the second episode of, ‘Hostels vs. Hotels’. Located in north Italy, Milan is an attractive spot for lots of people looking for an urban escape. But did you know it’s also well-connected to some of the most gorgeous small towns as well? Think Lake Como or Cinque Terre! So whether you’re after Instagram hot spots, some interesting street art, or just some good ol’ fashioned Italian culture, Milan is calling your name!

And like Amsterdam (our first episode destination), Milan is also a popular tourist spot, meaning you sometimes have to book well in advance to get a bed or a room in that highly coveted hostel or hotel. So be sure to do your research and booking ahead of time so you don’t end of disappointed.

Choosing Accommodation

Gone are the days of hotels being outrageously expensive and hostels being outrageously unclean and dangerous. Hotels have become more affordable, while hostels have become much more safe, exceptionally clean, and fun. But when it comes time to plan your own trip, where will you stay? Well, that depends on several things! Are you travelling solo? Is it for work? Do you like meeting new people? These are just a few of the essential factors to consider when choosing the right accommodation for yourself. So before booking anything, be sure to ask yourself these questions, and think about your general needs and expectations. Because at the end of the day, your choice of accommodation can make or break your vacation.

But maybe you don’t even know what a hostel really looks and feels like. Or maybe you’ve heard your Aunt Karen trash talk hostels, and you’re eager to prove her wrong. So to help you make that informed decision, our hosts cover all the topics you might be mulling over.
