This is a small family run hostel, right beside Villa Olmo and about a 10-15 minute walk along the lakeside into town. The woman who seemed to be running the show was quite helpful and spoke english well. There is only one room for women, and one room for men. The rooms are set up nicely though with half walls and lockers dividing the beds, and I found my stay was quiet and comfortable. The lockers come with a key included in the price. You can buy a nice home cooked meal for dinner for pretty fair prices. In the morning they will make you a nice coffee to go with your breakfast included in the price of the stay. The breakfast is standard for Italy hostels (a bun and some jam). The hostel opens at 4pm, the gates close at midnight, and you have to check out by 9am, and the gates close again at 10am. If you arrive earlier in the day you can always leave your bags at the train station for 4 euro for 4 hours while you go around and explore.
From the San Giovanni train station, it's a 30 minute walk or you can take bus 1, 6 or 11. You can buy bus tickets at the tobacconist in the train station (1.55euro each). You have to walk down the large staircase and across the road to get the bus (they don't stop in the train station bus loop).
