I spent just a couple of nights but this place Lake Como worth at least a week, I love the views and staff for this place is very gentle, rooms are clean and well distributed, it is easy to move for main point since this place. Bathrooms and showers are the cleanest in Italy so thats great.

Weird rules! They turn off the wi fi at midnight and they force you to be inside the room after midnight!!! I had a terrible experience!! It was summer time and the room was very hot, there was no fan, no air conditioner. I did a gilrfriend from my room and we went try to find the wifi signal downstairs,... More

Some positive notes I will start off with for this hostel is it is very cheap compared to other hostels I have stayed in Italy. The place is owned by an Italian couple and they are very nice. They will inform you about certain events at the time and some great sights to see. The dinner was delicious and there... More

Tl;Dr I would never stay here again. Why: This hostel has some positives. Friendly staff. Nice clean rooms. Good storage. Clean bathrooms. Knowledgeable of city activities. Sadly this hostel has tons of negatives. Beginning with the 10-4 gap where you cannot check in or be at the hostel. Which sucks for you if your train arrives during that six hour... More

An stereotype Italian couple is in charge of the hostel and takes the roles of receptionist, host, barrista, cook, waitress and tripadvisor very seriously. They really created their own Italian dream. Very welcoming, amazingly hospitable and the misses has some great suggestions such as discount trips to bellagio from the hostel. The hostel itself is great for what you pay.... More

I was travelling on the Zurich - Milano train line, and I stayed at this hostel for two nights almost seven years ago. This part of Italy is really beautiful and worth seeing. The hostel was all right. It was a budget accommodation for this otherwise expensive part of the country. The breakfast was included but it was super basic... More

I needed a cheap place for one night in the Como area. I booked a bed in this hostel even though the rooms have more beds than I prefer. The night I stayed there, there were only 3 or 4 other people in the men's dorm so it worked out OK for me. The facilities are decent but if the... More

Stayed in Como this summer and had a wonderful experience. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we really felt at home there. We were very grateful to find that good English was spoken by the staff there, and they were able to recommend activities in the area for us, as well as give essential information on local bus times...
