Babila Hostel & Bistrot
The new Babila Hostel & Bistrot Milano was inaugurated on the 15th of September 2017. The elegant and sophisticated building is located in the heart of the Milan fashion quarter, just a short walk from Piazza San Babila. Babila Hostel is a result of a deep restructuring of the west wing of the Victory Column Institute, founded in 1896 by the then Cardinal of Milan, Andrea Carlo Ferrari, who has decided to open a Catholic school in the city.
It fits in the tradition of the most modern European Hostel: smart solution for backpackers and dynamic travellers, measured on the needs of both young travellers and families (solutions with 4 beds) or traditional travellers (with private rooms). Beside the accomodation, the Babila Hostel welcomes everybody to concerts, programs and cultural happenings in the Bistrot area and offers a delicious variety of food wines and cocktails! Check out our monthly program and join us!
