"Das Frühstücksbuffet und das saubere Bettzeug. Auch die Duschen und WC's waren sehr hygienisch. Nicht wie man das sonst so von Jugendherbergen kennt."

About Locarno Youth Hostel

Because the Canton of Ticino is located almost at sea level (at an altitude of 192 metres), it is possible to enjoy a Mediterranean climate from springtime until the end of November. It also means that a large part of life at the "Palagiovani" is spent outdoors - for example at a "Grigliata" in the inner courtyard surrounded by the building's three wings. Naturally, nearly all the modern double and four-person rooms have a balcony. And it's also pleasant to get together on the veranda or under the pergola.

Palagiovani - the first palace of youth
In addition to the Youth Hostel, the unique "Palace of Youth" also houses Ticino's local radio station, a youth bureau and the music school. There's always something going on in this stately house. The Palagiovani is also suitable for congresses, thanks to its various seminar rooms. Some family rooms are even equipped with a kitchenette.

Film festival, Piazza Grande etc.
Just past the Youth Hostel begins the old city centre of Locarno. Its centre is the Piazza Grande where in summer there are festivals and events almost every week. The most famous festival is the film festival in august.
But there is even more in Locarno: the big arcades along the Piazza Grande that invite you for shopping, and the magnificent view over Locarno and the Lago Maggiore from the pilgrimage church Madonna del Sasso. You can reach the church easily by funicular or by foot taking the Via Crucis.
