This hostel is one of those that makes you feel at home. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, and the food is yummy. There isn't much security, but you do not need it as it's such a safe area. Definitely stay here!

Had an amazing stay here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and home cooked meals. The view from our dorm room was absolutely stunning. If you are staying in the area definitely recommend staying here. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Overall a great hostel, friendly staff, very comfortable feel, great location, great food. Few little issues: average wifi, tiny single cubicle showers-no privacy or place to put your stuff, toilet rooms so small it's almost impossible to close the door. Unnecessarily long closing times for cleaning them too. Cool common room but closed 2-5. BUT! great hostel aside from that, would still reccomend

We rented sheets and towels and both were ripped, maybe it's time to buy some new linen.

Great hostel. Food and drink are great, great atmosphere and staff. Having a lock out was slightly annoying on wet days but apart from that hostel is amazing.

Feel like being home, warm and cozy. The staff is so nice and absolutely helpful. Dinner is good value for money. Highly recommend to do canyoning if you visit there in the summer time.

This hostel was great I would stay again in a heartbeat. The staff we met were very friendly and helped set us up on a canyoning trip that was one of the highlights of our Italy trip. They also recommend hikes and the hostel boss even helped me look up some of my Italian relatives to see what town they are from. Bar is cheap and the atmosphere was great. Met a lot of other friendly travelers of all ages from all over. Look forward to returning some day.

I have been here twice now and this is my favourite hostel. Location is set in the middle of Lake Como and the views are breathtaking. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is amazing. The food here is delicious too. Would recommend!

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. The boss was very kind to upgrade us from a 6 bed dorm to a private room which was sweet! Staff were super helpful and friendly. The American girl working there was particularly awesome. Bar and restaurant a great addition too - food pretty basic but reasonable. Our only complaint really was that the bathroom facilities were VERY basic - very little privacy and nowhere to put your stuff! We would stay again.

I booked one night here and ended up staying for 3! Fabulous and stunning location, staff are so friendly and helpful. Such a awesome vibe I miss this place already! Been backpacking on and off for last 7years and this is my favourite hostel that I've ever been in 😊

This hostel was confusing. They have odd reception hours. Although the staff was pretty nice, they were not very helpful. We did however like the hostel bar and the pizza was pretty delicious and priced well. Views were also amazing out of our balcony.

Great place to stay, in a good area, food is delicious from the hostel restaurant and for very good value. The only issue we had was that the showers don't have any room to put your stuff and the rooms are all open unless you book a private so your stuff isn't secure at all and there's only small lockers to put some stuff in.

Everything you could need in a at numbing location and filled with the most beautiful people. Only complaints would be the bedroom doors don't lock, bike rental is expensive, and a microwave and guest fridge would be soo good

A great chilled out, friendly hostel with million-dollar views of Lake Como. Menaggio is a lovely little town, and the hostel is just down the road from the shops and cafe's, and right near the bus stop to Como and the train station. No kitchen, but breakfast is included, and a friendly communal dinner is available (at extra cost) which is a great way to meet other travellers. I stayed for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the setting and proximity to activities and day trips in the area.

Everything was good until at 1 in the morning, a staff member came in and turned the light on letting in two people. Not cool
