Beautiful setting, friendly staff, good value for money. Super views and perfect location to the ferry for all your activities! Rooms were clean and cosy Lovely window! Felt secure Private beach is not a selling point so don't go for that. Showers were OK, no room to change so everything gets wet. Would definitely go back!

The view from the our room was breathtaking.The staff were super friendly and helpful. The only bad point: no hot water (for the first 3 hours)... More

I loved this simple, lively hostel. I have stayed at other hostels but this was quite a fun place and so colorful. The youngsters managing this place are interesting, hardworking and warm hosts! The dorm rooms, beds, and bathrooms are quite nice as well. And then morning breakfast is complimentary and good.

Beautiful view. Good location. You need to take the bus into como. The 8 person room was smelly and the bathroom seemed like it hadn't been cleaned for weeks. One guy on the staff was nice and the rest were disinterested.
