This was one of the best hostel experiences I have ever had, seriously. We came here in April so the weather was absolutely perfect. The views are incredible, and the staff (especially Felippe) were soooo nice and courteous. We rented kayaks, walked around the city, and had beers at the local pub at night. The dinner at the hostel was... More

I had the unfortunate experience of staying in this hostel during my travels. I would this place the worst hostel I stayed in in Europe. This was all because of the staff who were very unhelpful or just rude. Great location. Dirty rooms. Poor service. Look for something else.

In my 2 months of backpacking Europe in many different kinds of hostels this one was by far the worst. I surprised it has any good reviews! I'm assuming it was good back in the day. We arrived in the 3-5pm closed time slot (unfortunately) and we were aware of this closed period. Tired from our journey we relaxed on... More

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel this past weekend. But that was mainly due to all of the people I met and stayed with. The staff was so-so, some of them were really nice, and others weren't, they didn't seem happy to be working there. I asked one of the staff (I don't know any of their... More

Our experience here was bad from the moment we got there at 3pm. They are closed from 2-5 so we couldn't check in. You would think this is when most people come to check in so pretty stupid to close. Anyway after waiting around for a couple of hours we were greeted by a girl who seemed pissed off her... More

Really easy to get to from the ferries w big signs leading you to it. Great location overlooking the Lake. Good food that they cook up every night (could be cheaper though in my opinion). Plenty of booze to serve, but it (sort of) kept shutting down @ midnight. Staff were friendly and good fun to hang w.

While on family vacation at Lake Como, we attended a cooking class at the hostel, with their chef Davide. It was a wonderful experience! He was very informative, patient, and good-humored, and adapted to the different levels of cooking experience in the group. We made fresh pasta and a pomodoro sauce, which we then ate for a great quality meal.... More

I have stayed in many hostels across Italy and I have to say that this is the most basic of them all. Having said that, it was very clean, the staff were pleasant enough and located perfectly, in order to travel to all the key towns across the lake. We stayed in a room that was meant for 3 people,...

The staff is friendly. The food is good, with a generous cook. Rooms somewhat crowded. But it's a hostel, not a hotel. For extra luxury, you might have to go a bit further on the road. Cozy common (dinner-) room. With an excellent playlist on the background. Father John Misty and Kurt Vile in a hostel. I'm sold.
