    Amazing place and view. Only issue was the construction jackhammering noise that kicked off at 7:30am. Who does that?!

    If I could have stayed here longer I would have. Menaggio is an adorable little town and the hostel is an easy walk from the center of town. The closeness to the ferry also makes it easy to visit any other towns as well. Definitely stay and eat at the hostel for lunch or dinner it was delicious. The rooms have views of the lake that are phenomenal and the hostel staff is friendly and helpful.

    Awesome place, I wish I had stayed longer! The staff is super chill, the place is clean. The facilities aren’t the best (no kitchen) but what they do have works.

    Great staff and great location! Rooms were big but lockers were small. Rooms are very warm at night unless the balcony door is open. If you're driving your own car, finding the hostel might be confusing at first since google maps doesn't recognize the side ramp you have to take to get up to it. Overall, I would stay here again!

    The place itself was in the most perfect spot! Just a 3-minute walk to the ferry dock where you can catch a ferry to Varena, Bellagio, and more. The staff was super friendly and the restaurant downstairs had some of the best food I have ever had. The beds were comfortable and the views from the room window were amazing. We stayed in a 5 person private room and the only downside was that the bathroom was incredibly small and not cleaned very well. Overall would recommend!

    My stay here was fantastic! The staff were great and provided plenty of information on things to do in Lake Como. The view from the mixed dorms is unbeatable and the cost per night is more than reasonable, especially where it is located. Menaggio is a small town, but there are plenty of hikes and activities to do, and taking the ferry to other towns is extremely easy. The hostel is less than a 5-minute walk to the ferry port. I would definitely love to come back in the future!
