Property Description

Lake Como Hostel is home to 11 bedrooms, both dormitories and private rooms with ensuite bathroom. Housekeeping is complied daily and free Wi-Fi is available in the common spaces and in the rooms.
A light Italian Breakfast (coffee, tea, bread, jam&butter) is included in the price, but our guests can order extra sweet or savory meals from our menu (ex: eggs & bacon / pancakes / apple pie etc.).
The Hostel also features a Lake-view Bar and Restaurant, the Hosteria de Menas where you will enjoy a lively atmosphere, affordable drinks, local specialities, Italian classics and gourmet burgers.

On the other side of the road, there is a public beach. The ferry dock and the town centre are just a few minutes away.
Menaggio (Middle-Lake), where the hostel is located, is a strategic starting point to explore Lake Como, including by public transports. The Hostel multilingual staff will be happy to share plenty of information and advice on hiking and sightseeing.

Make Staff member with man bun was very rude. Room had ants and hair everywhere. Bathroom also flooded when you use shower. Mold in bathroom. Breakfast is okay but could include fruit.

Wonderful staff, all the girls in my female dorm were so easy to get along with. In a perfect spot, super easy to walk to center and by the coast. Nightlife was great too, noise didn’t go too late, I think around 11. Breakfast was included, bathroom door was broken but that’s about it for me :)

Amazing!! If I hadn’t booked here I probably wouldn’t have even visited Menaggio, which would’ve been a total loss for me. So glad I got to stay here, especially in a place with such stunning views. The restaurant is super nice (dinner costs money but breakfast is free), and though the rooms aren’t anything fancy they got the job done. The window view of the lake was also a bonus. Everyone was super nice and welcoming! Would definitely stay again if I’m in the area.
