• Apartments in the city centre

IMY offers accommodation in shared rooms, for a maximum of 3 persons per room, under the brand of VMYH - Villa Michelina Youth Hostel!

We provide quality, as we know that the accommodation plays an integral role in the working experience abroad! That is why we support institutions, schools and learners in finding the best solution for the staying: IMY staff personally visits each accommodation before trainees' arrival and carefully check the quality and the minimum standards required.

The maximum number of persons in accommodations with a single bathroom is 5, while bigger accommodations with additional bathrooms can accommodate more persons with the same proportion between beds and bathroom number (5 persons / 1 bathroom).
