The first new generation hostel of the YellowSquare group arrives in Milan, from 20 August in via Lattuada, in the heart of Porta Romana between the Parenti Theater and the Mysterious Baths.
The structure will be housed in two buildings with 98 beds in mixed dormitories and 29 private rooms, but also many common areas open to the public. Spread over an area of 800 square meters, there will be a bar that never sleeps, a large event room for meetings and live music, a relaxing private courtyard, a co-working space, an underground Dance Club, a large kitchen for shared meals. and cooking class, a hair-saloon and a Play Area where you can try your hand at fitness, arts and dance.
A space that wants to be both physical and mental and that caters to a new type of traveler who is more explorer than traditional tourist.
The philosophy of this hostel rests on three concepts: respect, inclusion and sustainability since the brothers Fabio and Marco Coppola opened the first YelloSquare in Rome, near Termini Station, in 1999.
Sustainability translates into 100% plastic-free green services in the bar and kitchen and in the decoration of the spaces. In each room, in fact, guests will find murals of an Italian animal in danger of extinction made by a street artist. By scanning the QR placed next to the drawing you will have access to animated stories that see him as the protagonist.
What makes the new space typically Milanese is the presence of metal tech-design in the furniture in the rooms and structures in the common areas and the reference to the spiers of the Duomo stylized in the furnishings and lights of the event room.
“After the difficult experience of the pandemic – said Fabio Coppola -, I believe that YellowSquare’s open and informal approach best responds to the desire for all travelers to return to sharing”.
“And we like the idea of restarting with the opening of Milan – added Marco Coppola -, a city that has always been devoted to discovery and curiosity. This is why we hope to become a point of reference also for the neighborhood and for the Milanese ”.
The opening in Florence is scheduled for next September.
