For location alone I don't think I have stayed at a better hostel. Located right at the edge of Lake Como, it provides stunning views of the lake which cannot be beaten. I have rarely had a moment as uplifting as waking up in the morning and looking out across the still lake and the dramatic mountainous landscape from our... More

The staff, location, food, beds, view, and prices make the by far one of the best hostels I've ever been to. It is only a short 5 minute walk from the ferry stop. They have a fantastic common area with games, a bar with reasonable pricing (5 euros for a liter of wine), and the view is unparalleled. Menaggio is... More

Look this hostel isn't that flash but the view are amazing! They cook every night which is cheap and tasty. Cheap beers and wine. Free breakfast which is good. Staff are great. Good location. You can catch the c10 bus from Como tell the driver where u are going and he will stop close to it.

Had a great stay. The staff were friendly and (given how busy they were) very accommodating. As is typical with most hostels, make sure you bring flip flops for the showers - they were pretty dirty. The food and drinks are great value & pretty tasty, and they provide lots of organized activities.

18 family members ages 2- 90 from the US gathered and enjoyed almost a week in this facility. We booked rooms in the Peace Lodge, which allowed some tranquility for the baby and parents, but spent much of the time at the Hostel, eating, drinking, and meeting fantastic travelers from around the world. We ate delicious dinners here, giving us... More

We didn't stay here (although I have done before and loved it) however we spent half our holiday sitting o. The terrace here taking in the views and the amazing food and drink. It's a brilliant atmosphere too - I'd highly recommend a night here even if you aren't staying.

beautiful clean and simple. Lovely common area. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm, had a nice window for air and lockers But with 4 people in at the same time with big bags it was cramped. Breakfast was a good standard hostel meal, staff were friendly and location absolutely perfect!

We did not stay overnight but did a cooking lesson at the hostel. It was really great! We did fresh pasta, pesto and tiramisu with Clelia, who was nice and friendly teacher. We learned a lot about italian cuisine. The price was reasonable. In the end we ate the food and enjoyed beautiful landscape to the lake Como.
