If you don't have a huge budget for sleeping accomodations, but hate those run down, seedy hotels, La Primula is ideal for getting a relaxing, clean, basic bed and roof over your head. The added bonus is outside: Every room has stunning views of beautiful Lake Como. It's a view you would pay a fortune for at a hotel, but...

Great location and nice views. The best aspect of the hostel is that it is the most affordable place with easy access to the waterfront. Parking can be a hassle: the locals fill the on-street parking during the day, and the parking beside the hostel is limited and also not restricted to hostelers. Nice common room with lots of useful...

Revisited hostel based on an excellent cycling break two years ago. Best hostel I've ever stayed at. Perfect location and all the staff give 100% to make stay enjoyable. Regardless of age (I'm 65) everyone is made to feel welcome and to feel they are getting individual attention. As long as you appreciate that this a hostel and not a...

Our Busabout tour dropped us in Como but we chose to take the hour bus trip out to the hostel further up the lake. It was well worth it!!! Much less tourists on this city. The hostel overlooks the lake and surrounding mountains with each dorm having a balcony. It is beautiful. The downstairs restaurant and lounge area is quaint...

Our first piece of advice would be to choose the ferry option to arrive (the hostel sent a helpful email with travel instructions). We spoke to people who had chosen to take the bus and had a terrible journey: we on the other hand took the train from Milano Centrale to Varenna and then the ferry from Varenna to Menaggio....

I've stayed in many hostels and felt really disappointed with this one. The location and the view from the hostel are great and Menaggio is a nice town to stay in. We were really excited that the hostel was so affordable and were looking forward to staying here. However we didn't feel that even at the low price this hostel...

After the windy bus ride from Como, this hostel feels like a paradise. The view is breathtaking. I stayed in a dorm-style room with several other solo travelers. Very friendly and helpful staff. They offer a BBQ each week during the summer, which is a great way to get good food and meet other people. They also have kayaks for...

I know gites and youth hostels and I found this one very disappointing. The first thing I was told when I arrived is to make sure to give rating on Tripadvisor, nearly before greating us. So, this is what I do now. I did not find the staff very friendly. Some maintenance was necessary: no hot water in shower, blocked...
