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...

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
