Ok if you want to go for the location it is 5 star. The hostel itself is only ok, the staff cant really be bothered and the rooms are tiny and cramped. The showers are worse than cramped, think 2.5 x 2.5 feet and having to fight with a thin plastic shower curtain from rubbing up against you when your... More

Reasonable price and a great location make this hostel a wonderful way to visit Lake Como. The staff was helpful and friendly which made our stay very enjoyable. We arrived a little late and dinner was nearly over. The staff graciously took care of us and we are still able to get a delicious dinner. We had a private room... More

Would recommend this hostel as a comfortable and very affordable base.We stayed in a room overlooking the lake and the view was amazing-the beds could be more comfortable and l would recommend the hotel took note of this comment. We met... More

It's a cosy hostel, very near to the ferry station/point. It is managed by group of enthusiastic youngsters, who can become your great friends! It is kept very clean, and all the facilities are well maintained. Each night, they cook fresh food, which is quite yummy, and the wine isn't so expensive! It was a delight staying here. No Negatives!

Wow. What a delightful place. I came at the very end of the the tourist season, and was the only guest the night I was there! This did not stop me from having a fun, social stay since I was warmly welcomed by the staff and invited to hang and dine with them. Owner Fabio and everyone who worked there... More

I had such a wonderful experience at this hostel. When I arrived I was greeted right away by the kind reception and beautiful lake view. After being shown up to my room and having the facilities explained to me (most hostels don't give you a tour like this!) I was pleased to find myself in a room with another lake... More

The manager made me feel extremely uncomfortable one the first night I was staying here. The showers are not private at all and are so small it is difficult to properly shower. I was put in an 8 bed dorm when I booked for a 6 and the door was so sticky that it made an awful loud screeching noise... More

I stayed at this hostel for the second time in September and it was the one of the best hostels I've stayed in! It is in a lovely area and the views are stunning. Staff are friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is what makes this place, both times I've been. I have met amazing people and there is plenty to... More

Location is very convenient for visiting Lake Como (right by bus stop, ferry) and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Fabio (sp?) took quit a bit of time to help me plan a day trip in Switzerland and to suggest a beautiful hike. Unfortunately my phone was stolen (in another place) so I was without an alarm to wake... More
