Amazing value given the location
For the price we paid, it’s incredible value. The hostel is tired and exactly what you’d expect for the price, but the location and views are amazing, the staff are super helpful and friendly and the restaurant really well worth a visit. If you want a budget short stay, this is the perfect stop off

Lake Como hostel
Great stay we found the staff very friendly and helpful. We even received an email from hostel advising us of a rail strike that was planned during our dates there, which allowed us to tweak our trip plans. The hostel was very clean & well presented & we met some lovely fellow travellers there. Hostel very close to public transport which was very convent for us. We did have dinner there unfortunately the pasta was undercooked otherwise everything else was very good.
