This place is out of the way. You have to climb a hill to get in-and-out, BUT there are beautiful scenic views of Lake Como if you walk to the city (30-min walk) AND the hostel will pick you up and drop you off at the bus station at the bottom of the hill for free. The restaurant is DELICIOUS... More

This is a lovely hostel for those who want to get away from everything. There is a very long up hill trek to get there but you can get a lift up from the lady who runs the place 'Sylvia'. The accommodation is nice. My boyfriend and I got a private double room with our own bathroom, which was perfect... More

The hostel is a bus ride from the station and lake front, making it a little out of the way but the park it is situated in makes it well worth it. There is quite a large hike up a hill to reach the actual hostel, but ringing the hostel will ensure that they drive down and pick you up.... More

If you are looking to experience the city of Como and you also love nature, this is an ideal location. You have so many options for how to spend your time here. You could go to town, explore the beautiful hills and panoramic views or even hike to switzerland, take a bus from the bottom of the hill (a 15... More

so difficult to get to. the hike up the hill is not fun. they dont have a kitchen you can use. only a mini fridge that the entire place shares. the computers sucked, could only get wifi in certain spots. no air conditioning and when you leave the windows open all kinds of things fly in. the showers are ridiculous....

This hostel is the best I have ever stayed in. Silvia the host could not do enough for you and the food in the restaurant is amazing value and delicious. The hostel is situated at the top of a steep track but the hostel offers a free shuttle until 23.30 so that you can still explore the town of Como... More

The hostel was clean and friendly. It is a little bit out of town but if you get to the piazza down the hill they'll happily pick you up. (Buses easily available to here) Otherwise it's a 40 minute walk into the centre of town. Basic breakfast, dinner gives you two options. Tasty and well priced. A good place for... More

The hostel is located in a park you can reach by foot (about 15min walk) or just call the hostel and they will pick you up. It's an incredible great service. The personal are very friendly. They would help for every thing you could need! The can have dinner there for 5 or 6 euros, it's great and you don't... More

My friend and I stayed in Hostel Respau for three nights. Good reviews led us here and our experience confirmed and even exceeded all expectations. For a budget traveler, one can do no better. The staff is unbelievably solicitous. Sylvia and the other main person (his name escapes me) were totally helpful and insightful, had no attitude, and seemed to... More
