    Not only is your stay guaranteed to be lovely because of the hospitality and the facilities, but the location is superb with a gorgeous view of Lake Como. The downtown core and the boat ticket office are a ten minute walk away. I would recommend coming to Como just to stay at this hostel and create a trip around it.

    This hostel deserves its high rating. It is so clean, so accommodating, with such a great atmosphere. Free breakfast is awesome. Free welcome drink is awesome. Hammocks in the back garden are awesome. It’s right along the harbour, easy walking distance from all the super good Italian restaurants. And the staff are always happy to help with everything. Loved my time here.

The staff are incredibly friendly, the facilities are amazing (24/7 food available in the kitchen - they have crackers, biscuits and cereals available all day and everything you need to make your own pasta; sauce, veggies, oil, spices, the pasta itself, etc), the beds are comfy, towels/ sheets/ blankets are clean, the bar is cheap (€4 aperol spritz) and the outdoor area is gorgeous and a great way to make new friends!

    This hostel is in a perfect location in Como. It is just steps away from the waterfront, and a few minutes walk to the center of downtown Como. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the main social area of the hostel is a true hangout spots for hostel-goers and actually locals from the Como village. The bar was absolutely packed, but also filled with many super friendly Como residents, students, etc.. Ostello Bello really knows how to run a hostel, and the rooms were super clean with big lockers!

    Fantastic Hostel in the heart of Como. I had a brilliant stay at Ostello Bello in Como. The facilities are amazing, from the free breakfast, to the kitchen with free food and the bar and seating areas. The only minor issue I had was with regards to the beds. The bunks are 3 tiers which was a little high for me when placed on the top bunk. Overall though I couldn’t recommend this hostel highly enough.

    Perfect location! Really nice hostel. Great staff. The only things that were odd were the really high triple bunks (if someone falls, they'll seriously hurt themselves) and the tricky luggage storage area. Highly recommended.
