    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.

    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!

    Amazing location and great atmosphere! I stayed in a dorm and had a balcony view over Lake Como, so that was amazing. Bathrooms and rooms are fine, definitely worth it for the price. You can get dinner and lunch at the hostel for cheap and the light breakfast included in my booking was very convenient. The front desk has a lot of information about hikes/activities/renting sports equipment during your stay at Lake Como. It's a lot of young travelers, so a very fun place to stay.

    Great place! Right on the water, amazing views from the balcony & fairly priced! The locals were great to hang out with in the evenings and the room was clean. Some of the staff weren’t as friendly as the ones in Ostello Bello hostels. There was also a cockroach in the bathroom, which obviously wasn’t ideal! Apart from that - fabulous place!!

    Very Good

    The view from the hostel was absolutely amazing!! Such a great experience waking up to the lake, and the hostel was in a perfect location a few minutes from the ferry and town. The WiFi was terrible though and one morning completely down for everyone which made it really challenging to try and plan anything for your trip. The lady at the front wasn’t receptive to trying to fix it and not very pleasant but otherwise the staff were really friendly and great. Great value for staying on the lake.

    Since there are not many hostels in Lake Como, this location was great. 7-10 minute walk into Menaggio, 2 minute walk to the ferry, hostel has a cafe/restaurant/bar downstairs - good atmosphere. The view from the balcony is amazing. Bathroom and showers did not feel clean, never saw them cleaned during my 3 night stay. Bed sheets felt clean but the bunk beds are very low. Some staff were very friendly, some were not. I met a lot of cool travelers here, good for socializing.
