Despite all the good critics that this hostel has, I'll just rate it average. The hostel is an old house, with a front building with 2 floors, a patio, and a second building with 5 floors, that is the main hostel. Despite the pictures, the painting is already damaged and it will be good to do some kind of deep cleaning... In the front building you have the reception, the bar and a small dinning room for breakfast, the kitchen, the space for storage and one rooms for guests. The building at the back is the main hostel, that can be accessed with an electronic code. In the last floor there's the washing machine and you can hang clothes. All rooms are accessed with an electronic code. I stayed in the female dorm. The bunk beds were solid, and you didn't feel the movement of your neighbours. For 5 beds, there were only 3 lockers. And the bathroom is located inside the room. The patio is where the party takes place at night, but you don't hear the noise in your room. Many people from outside the hostel come also in the night to the dinning room (in this sense, it was kind of insecure, crossing the crowd to arrive to the second building...). The kitchen is well equipped and clean. In fact, you can find also some pasta or rice that you can use to cook for yourself. The hostel has by its side a supermarket and it's 5m away from the city center and 10m from the railway station. The place to store luggage is just an open space surrounded by just a fence that is locked, but doesn't prevent people to take out the luggage while jumping the fence.

The staff and atmosphere were really nice. I stayed in a 6 bed room. I did have a hard time sleeping because of terrible noise and an uncomfortable matress. I recommend this place if you're looking to meet new friends, not for a good night of sleep.

Thanks for the nice stay. I was in a hostel for the first time and certainly not the last time. It was an absolutely great atmosphere and all the employees were very friendly and helpful. It was a great experience. I'm looking forward to the next time. Kind regards Robert

Well located hostel in Como, walking distance to ferry terminal and the town. Friendly staff to welcome and provide information. We had a private room as we travelled with children. The bunk beds were comfortable and sheets/towels were clean. Our room was down a quiet end of the hostel. A well equipped kitchen and terrace for eating outside was lovely. The hostel has a good atmosphere with lots of people enjoying themselves!

Best hotel I’ve stayed in by far. This place felt super safe. With modern wristband / smartphone app key entry, good locks on the doors and the staff really looked after you, always asking if we were okay and if there was anything they could do at every opportunity. There’s CCTV, and a locked area to store luggage on your checkout day too. We had a private room which had lots of space, kettle, tea etc and even a hairdryer and air con (bonus!). Towels and soaps etc were provided in our room but there’s options to get these from reception as well as mozzy repellent and ear plugs should you need them. We also had breakfast here which was perfect, cereal, pastries, toast, eggs, bacon, fruit as well as fresh juices and coffee. A really good mix of people stayed here, families, young solo travellers and groups, with some locals even coming to the bar as it’s so good. If you’re at all worried about hostel accommodation this one’s a good place to start, you’ll feel at home!

I didn't stay here but used their luggage storage service. They are reliable, professional and friendly. Everyone spoke great English and are eager to help you efficiently. We had a 9am ferry from Como and needed to store 5 carry-ons in a hurry, and they helped fast. The only thing is that we had to carry them up to the 3rd floor walk-up ourselves but for 5 euros per bag, it was ok. It is located right between the Como ferry terminal and Como S. Giovanni train station so very convenient too.

Brilliant hostel. Rooms were clean and modern. Beds were comfortable. Hostel has a bar and chill out area, and plenty of outdoor space. Right on the water front also, and five minutes walk from either train station. The reception staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Can't fault this place.

Francesca was very welcoming and found the staff friendly and pleasant as well as helpful. Set close to the main train station and to the town centre, could not of picked a better place to stay. The breakfast was nice and satisfying and the outdoor spaces were tranquil and supreme. Best appreciated in the mornings as the rays of sun hit the courtyard!
