©2024 New Generation Hostel

New Generation Hostel Milan Center is located in the center of the Brera District, within walking distance to the Metro station and a few steps away from the Duomo and the Famous shopping area in Via Montenapoleone.

The Hostel stands in a wig of the beautiful Convent Sant Angelo belonging to the Franciscan monks.
On February 21st 1552, the cornerstone was laid and the construction of the convent and the church of S. Angelo was commenced. The building has been commissioned by the governor Ferrante Gonzaga, the church replaced the eponymous church that had been demolished as it was on the route planned for the new city walls. Domenico Giunti, creator of the project, designed a Church in the shape of a Latin cross consisting of a single nave under a vaulted ceiling decorated with geometric motifs.
The convent was destroyed following the suppression, and the current monastery was built in the last century by the architect Giovanni Muzio.

In front of the Convent there is a fountain with the statue of S. Francesco talkinking to the birds. The monument is decorated with the verses of the Canticle of all Creatures.

Located in the historic center, but with no hint of the chaos of Duomo, Brera exemplifies everyone’s romantic vision of life in a European city. The buildings are elegant, classy, and almost on every corner of every paved street there is an old world Pasticceria, luxury retailer or fine restaurant. In addition to the public museums Pinacoteca di Brera and Museo del Risorgimento, there are also many sleek commercial gallery and design spaces. Brera residents are some of the wealthiest and most stylish people in Milan, from old-school suited men and to young street-style couples pushing designer prams, you’ll see out at brunch looking impeccable.

Head to Via Montenapoleone for all of the top designer stores, the small streets adjacent to Via Brera for bohemian cafés and Orto Botanico Brera for relaxing. Close to the Brera district and just a short walk from the Milan Porta Garibaldi station, there is Corso Como, one of the most important streets in Milan for the city's nightlife. It is home to restaurants, pizzerias, pubs and lounge bars, a hotspot at night in the Lombardy capital, especially during the fashion week, when it is packed with names from showbiz.

Corso Como is also the address for some of the most famous national and international discos, like Hollywood Milano, Loolapaloosa, and Toqueville.

During the Fuori Salone, the famous event held to coincide with the international furniture exhibition, Corso Como hosts various events and initiatives that are always very popular.

Probably the best known and most popular location here with Milanese citizens is 10 Corso Como, a corner of Milan where art, fashion, music, design and cooking meet up. The inner courtyard leads to a shop selling unusual limited-edition articles: clothes, bags, accessories, footwear, books, records and objects. On the first floor, the famous Galleria Carla Sozzani holds temporary exhibitions and is the ideal place for shopping, chilling out and discovering new metropolitan and international trends. There is also a restaurant and a café with tables outside for relaxing and meeting people in a setting with unusual appeal.
