    Amazing place. They have all types of food in the kitchen! Met so many nice people from all over. Some people that stayed made dinner for me and a group of others. There’s so many opportunities for a free drink here as well! And it’s really close to everything. Definetely book here! Great atmosphere. My room was very quiet compared to the bar cuz it’s in a separate building. Overall, super nice.

    The definition of a perfect hostel. Located within 2 minutes walking of the lake, everything in the town was reachable quickly. The staff was extremely nice and the amenities at the hostel were incredible. A kitchen with a lot of free food to cook with, a relaxing atmosphere to chill out, books, a common area, etc. My friends and I want to go back to Como just to stay at the hostel again!

    We loved the location. Really great spot. We had a private room which was clean, the bed was comfy, and the view was perfect. Location is on the lake pretty much. The bar area was so cute. We went in early NOVEMBER so it was rainy and cold but we are sure it will be great in SUMMER and SPRING. the patio garden seating and the interior seating was plentiful. The breakfast was just enough food to start your day and the coffee - yum. It is a really cute place. Staff was wonderful.

    Real backpacker vibe. All the staff and guests are super friendly. The free aperol spritz on arrival was fabulous. The beds are comfy and spotlessly clean. Only downsides I would say are the bathrooms being connected to the room and it did get chilly in November.

    Lovely staff member who were able to answer all my questions about the area. The kitchen really was the star. They provided so many free supplies it was incredible. The only problem I had was that the showers were pretty small.
