    One of the best hostels in Italy by far! The staff was so friendly and welcoming, the food at the restaurant was great, and the views from the room were absolutely beautiful.

    The hostel is beautiful situated on the lake! We stayed at the nearby Peace Lodge, which are the private rooms. A thing to note: the private rooms are about 5-10 min walk up the hill from the main lodge. The rooms were great value for money and included breakfast! The set menu dinners were also good.

    Wonderful stay here, right in Menaggio. The location is great (though the Peace Lodge building where we stayed was about 8 minutes from the hostel itself) and the facilities were great. Awesome bar and restaurant with excellent specials. The all you can eat buffet was a real treat. The information and suggestions provided for things to do in the area were helpful and the staff were wonderful. Would recommend!

    The location is perfect, but the climb to get up to the lodge is exhausting. Great views from the room though!

    The views were amazing. The private rooms are a steep and far walk away from the main hostel. But the views make up for it! The staff are lovely and warm. Of the 3 options of bikes they advertised, they only had the most expensive to rent to us (others not working) - not very cool. Breakfast was alright, but I wasn't expecting it to be included so it was a lovely surprise. I'm definitely coming back to Lake Como and I'll definitely be staying here again. Good value for money

    The place has two buildings - one is a youth hostel and the other is for older folks. The hostel is located in Menaggio, which is a 40 minute bus ride away from Como. Menaggio is a touristy town, on the larger side, that is located mid-lake. The staff is friendly and they have a simple breakfast set up. They serve dinner for extra cost, but it’s cheap and simple.

    Amazing location and staff! Delicious simple breakfast. Very dirty in bedrooms, need to clean shower drain, walls from people killing mosquitoes, and the floors. Would recommend if you are on a budget, but wish I did more research on other places. Wish I knew about the free hike yoga and massage, didn't stay long enough to participate.

    I booked a room with 2 beds to visit with my brother, however they did not have a room with 2 beds available & gave us a room with just a full-sized bed. We checked in early & they did not charge to keep our bags, but they just had them in the corner of the dining room with no method for insuring people picked up the right luggage. We stayed at the lodge & the directions to get there were not very clear, so be sure to clarify that before you walk up the hill. I was very disappointed in my stay.
