    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.

    We stayed for 2 nights in a private 2 person room in the Peace Lodge. The atmosphere at the main hostel was great, had a cheap and tasty restaurant/bar area and a music corner as well as table football for socialising. We went out for drinks with the staff one night and had a great time, very social! The breakfast was simple but sufficient, room had what we needed as backpackers so good value for money. Just a bit of a trek up to the Peace Lodge each day, otherwise fab stay! Would return.

    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.

    The Hostel had a good and calm location but overall we weren't happy with what was so greatly rated and what we got in the end. Check-in was smooth. Arrivived at the room we found a tiny shower-toilet combo only large enough to turn around. The said shower had an aggressive amoniak smell and still had black spots even though ton of smelly cleaner must have been dumped there. Later in the evening we found two large bugs. The ceiling was missing a plate and one of the outlets was busted.

    This weekend it was unusually cold for this time of year in Lake Como. So the hostel did not turn on the heat or anything. It was so cold in the room and I had sheets with holes in them and only one thin blanket that I left extremely sick with a cold. Then next day when I asked for new blankets and sheets the staff told me that all of their sheets have holes in them and that people have been stealing their blankets so they don’t have any more. Every single thing I asked was met with a” no.”

    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.
