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...

The staff was wonderful, extremly helpfull and very patient with all my questions about the lake and the surroundings. We ate the restauant food one night which was much better than the pizza we ate... More

The lady at the front desk is a one of the most helpful, smart, and friendly I've met! She spoke English, Italian, French, and German (I'm sure more) and knew how to get anywhere you wanted to go, and some places off the beaten path, like the beautiful section of Lago di Como near Bellagio, where you can swim for...

It doesn't look like much and the lockout time is a bit annoying, but it really is worth it! Breakfast is included in the price (bread, coffee, juice, cereal) as is wifi in the garden and dining room. It it literally 2 mins around the corner from some of the most gorgeous buildings on Lake Como and the staff are... More

If you dou don't mind the male-female dorm seperation, this place is just perfect. The staff is nice, the rooms and showers are clean, and the breakfast is great, with full of aroma Italian coffee. We recommend it with all our hearts.

This is one of the best hostels that I stayed in during a recent trip to Italy - clean rooms with lots of air, lockers, garden, good showers, food on offer very good. Very friendly, trusting and patient staff with a wealth of info and tips. Seems to be a family-run hostel. 25 minutes walk from downtown Como, Lago di... More

This was our third visit and the first time we had stayed in the family room. Very quiet, clean, spacious, but what makes Villa Olmo Hostel so special is the incredibly lovely family running it. The husband is a terrific chef, his delightful wife (or another lady, possibly their daughter?) is the first point of contact for guests. They are... More
