    Honestly my favourite hostel I’ve stayed in. The vibes were so immaculate it and it was crazy easy to make friends. The view from the hostel is literally breathtaking. The staff are so so nice, the location is insane, and this hostel makes lake como accessible to young people which is unreal. Can’t recommend enough

    The hostel is in an meaning location just a short walk from Menaggio and has incredible views over the lake. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the hostel was a great place to stay and chill out! The restaurant for dinner was also great and even had locals and people from outside the hostel coming to eat which shows how good the food is! The breakfast included is also amazing and very welcome! I would highly recommend staying here, only note there is no a/c in the room so it’s hot

    Had a great time here, staff were friendly, the view is amazing and it’s great having the restaurant underneath. There isn’t any kitchen or area to make/cook food which is a little annoying but the food at the restaurant is pretty cheap. Had a great time here :) definitely recommend

    A great location and very friendly staff. The rooms are spacious but do not have large lockers, only small ones. The bathroom is very small but there are extra showers and toilets along the corridor that are excellent! It is very chilled and has a great atmosphere, would definitely stay here again.

    Our stay was amazing, the hostel is located near from ferry station so it was really good, the staff was so kind and ready to help. The bedroom was good, but my brother slept on the bed in the top and it was really noisy, he can’t move so I cannot sleep well and it was not as clean as I would like. But In general we had a good experience and also they provide Us with towels (it’s non common in hostels)!

    Amazing location with breathtaking views of the lake right from the bunk bed 😍 Super close to a good little beach for swimming in the lake as well. The hostel also has a restaurant and bar that the locals frequent, so the the vibes are good 😎 Showers are a little small and could have been a bit cleaner but the location and the price outweighed this by far!

    Nice hostel with good location. Bathrooms are small and need a bit more deep cleaning. On some nights the hostel was packed with partying young people. Overall atmosphere is good and the restaurant is nice.

    Amazing staff and great friendly social vibe, they were super helpful and just great energy you can tell they enjoy being there, special thanks to axel who helped me heaps with my broken lock. However the rooms werent very fresh, showers had no space to put your stuff/clean clothes and it was really hot only with a small fan which made repetitive clanking noises and there’s no kitchen or fridge for guests so don’t bring food that you’ll then have to throw away. Comfy mattresses, a sink and mirror in the dor
