Receiving an award, for us, is the sign that all the commitment and passion we put in our daily work is rewarded. Our main goal is sharing the love for hostel life and traveling. So, when we receive awards, we are just happy and want to thank our guests.
Without you we wouldn’t be standing where we stand.

What are the Hoscars?

Hoscars (HOStelword Customer Annual Ratings) are the most prestigious awards a hostel can receive. Winners are elected by more than 8 millions Hostelworld customers reviewing the hostels they have visited according to seven criteria: value for money, security, location, facilities, staff, atmosphere, cleanliness.

What is the Ambrogino d’oro?

Ambrogino d’oro is the award assigned by the City of Milan. While the Ambrogino is awarded to single persons, the civic merit goes to the entire organization or association that has taken concrete steps in the science, art, industry, work, culture, school, sport field or with initiatives of social, voluntary, philanthropic nature or acts of courage to help their co-citizens or enhance the prestige of the city.
