    What an awesome hostel. Amazing staff...Joe was especially very friendly and a good host. First beer is on them which is fantastic. Close to everything and across the street from Lake Como and 2min walk to ferries. Clean place, comfy beds and very safe. Had a blast and will be back for sure. Thanks team!

    Absolutely amazing hostel. The staff were so incredibly helpful, the location was super close to downtown and it was very clean and modern. They have a kitchen that has free pasta and veggies you can use to make food anytime and have fun events on some evenings

    Genuinely can’t think of how my stay could’ve improved! Great people, more free food than I could eat, great facilities. I’m honestly thinking about going back to the area soon just because I know I have such a good spot to stay in.

    Hands down the best hostel I have stayed at! Staff were all so friendly and helpful with regards to things to do. Perfect location in terms of transport and supermarkets. Would like to also mention how amazing Joe is there...encouraged strangers to all hang out and have a games night. It was a very friendly atmosphere. Will absolutely recommend this to my friends.

    My favourite hostel I’ve ever stayed in it really is amazing , the atmosphere is incredible the staff are so friendly and welcoming , I travelled solo but met people there within an hour of being there , it has such a good vibe about it . The facilities are insane , everything you could possibly think of and more and if there’s anything you’re in dire need for there’s a 24 hour supermarket next door. Short walk to both train stations&everything else is a few minutes walk away. Amazing place!

    Big Lockers under the bed, free drink. Next to the supermarket Carrefour. There are two train stations quite close. The one I used was 10 min away (Como Nord lago) . Friendly atmosphere (at least in my room) you know that if you're sharing a room you're not keeping any social distancing because all the beds were in use. If you are planning to visit in other areas (example bellagio, varenna, nesso) you need to plan very early to go back because the boat and buses come back to Como very early)
