Such a fantastic place to base your trip to Lake Como! It’s a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal and has everything you need. I came as a solo traveler and upon my arrival, the staff were quick to introduce me to other guests having dinner on the balcony. They were always on hand for suggestions and advice which... More

We stayed there just for one night. We came very late, but luckily the hostel was not far from the bus stop(that is one of the advantages ). Tha staff was friendly but little bit annoying. Rooms a very tiny and very cold inside, so be ready to sleep in outerwear. WC as well as a bathroom is also so... More

I spent in the hostel 7 days therefore I had a chance to establish warm relations with people working there at that time, enjoy my time while meeting locals who drop by very often and meet a lot of friendly people. The location is perfect thanks to proximity of lots of attractions, great communication with nearby towns and access to... More

We stayed here 4 nights and I hated there everything except the location which was very good starting point for discovering all mounrIn trails. The food was as for pigs, impossible to eat and even not chaep! I couldn't believe every meal we tasted, it was worse and worse.... The rooms very tiny and pure, just small small window, black...

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
