great location in Melaggio and so close to nanny great hiking trials. the biking and kayak rentals were over priced and there was no communal fridge or kitchen that we could use. it kind of forced you to eat their food there but it was quite good

I loved staying here, easily the best accommodation of my trip. I stayed in the style, so obviously it could be nicer to get more space. Prices were amazing for such a perfect location!

Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were friendly, great location, good chill out area/dining room. Only complaint is that rooms are stuffy at night, can't imagine what they would be like in summer unless they have a fan. Would stay again.

You are walking distance from menaggio. The private beach is literally a joke dont go there, you can pay 5€ and go to a private beach nearby that is really nice. You have a fantastic view from the lake. It is kind of noisy at night if it gets to busy. And i was only able to get a cold shower. Wifi generally works. Breakfast is pretty good.

Great location, great view, great food and great atmosphere! The only fault was that the toilets were not very clean but it wasn't unbearable and what you would expect from a hostel with shared facilities

Absolutely the best hostel experience I've ever had. Great spot, but what really counted was the people. Of the hostel especially, were Luisa & Stefano, the cook. Very welcoming at first, becoming good friends by the end.

The doors to the hostel were never really locked, but it was such safe town, it didn't matter too much.

Pretty average hostel. nice views and nice terrace area but apart from that it is not the best hostel I have ever stayed at. you are not allowed to be outside past midnight it seems as the staff tell you to leave the hostel or go to bed if you want a few drinks. The food is well priced but you get very small portions. They even charge you for an apple at breaks. not bad hostel though.

This was a really nice hostel to stay in. The evening meals tasted great and were a great value. The breakfasts were great too. We stayed for 3 days and enjoyed all of the information they had available on hikes in the area and other events. The location was wonderful and the hostel was easy to get to and from the ferry. I plan on returning to this hostel and area and highly recommend it to everyone.

Lake Como hostel is a must! The staff is wonderful, especially Luisa who makes a genuine effort to get to know the guests. She has a big heart and is always around to help. The rooms were nice and clean. Only problem I had were the showers--they overflow! That can be overlooked though. The location is great, lake view but is somewhat difficult to find at first, just as a fair warning. Thanks guys!
