    Thought the hostel was over priced when we paid for it but it was the best fit for what we were doing. Arrived to a free drink on entry then told there was communal pasta and pasta sauce. Also a free buffet breakfast too so most of your food is sorted while here. The receptionist was kind in helping us with what to do in the area too. Very cute area to chill out in.

    An incredibly clean hostel with modern rooms and bathrooms. Kitchen was supplied with stacks of fruit, vegetables, pasta, cous cous and tomatoes for anyone’s use. Lovely secret garden to chill out and read a book. Super close to the lake and restaurants. Would 100% recommend, wish I had longer there!

    Absolutely amazing hostel. Staff were great, rooms were great, not a single bad thing to say about it! The only thing was the location, although walking distance from the train station and to the lake itself, not really any beaches within walking distance that we could find / good spots to swim in the lake. This is down to more of Como itself. however, easy enough to get a ferry to other parts of the lake to swim / day trip!

    Loved it! The staff were amazing! So easy to meet people, almost all solo travelers. Very fun, family-like atmosphere. Had a great time doing a cooking class on the terrace, and going out with new friends from the hostel. Fun to hang out at the hostel bar, always lots of cool people there.

    It had the makings of a great hostel, but just wasn’t. Lots of outdoor common space with ppl congregating, decent beds, bathrooms, power outlets, nice staff. But there were millions of ashtrays out and ppl smoking day and night with music pumped through every possible common space, and there was no place to escape the noise and smoke anywhere at all except in the bedroom. I developed a permanent headache and left a day early. I love a good party hostel but this wasn’t it.
