Great location a couple minutes walk from the lake front. Fantastic to wake up to views of lake maggiore from your room. Pretty clean. Found the staff pretty unhelpful and unfriendly in general however. One night there was nothing open after 8. There isn't really a bar, its just a fridge in the reception area which also closes at 8. Stay for the location, not the actual hostel itself.


Ostello Verbania is far and away the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The location overlooking Lake Maggiore is amazing, the staff are lovely and everything is very clean. The breakfast is also brilliant and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Nice hostel with large yard. Was pretty quiet/dead when we were there, good price though and very clean. Staff wasn't overly helpful. Directions were also terrible. Get off at the square. Facing the gelato shop go left, past the church and continue on that way until you reach panoramic drive that will wind up and meet with via del rose and your basically there!
