About Locarno Youth Hostel
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, the music school and a press agency for young people. There's always something going on in this stately old house, once a boarding school for young ladies.
The Palagiovani is also suitable for congresses, thanks to its various seminar rooms. Some family rooms are even equipped with a kitchenette.
Locarno is the starting point for a wide range of activities: whether sailing on Lake Maggiore - for example from Ascona to the Brissago islands - or energetic mountain bike excursions in the valleys of the Sopraceneri.
The valleys of Ticino offer several hundred kilometres of hiking paths, there are 700 km of these in the Vallemaggia alone. For the adventurous, there is action such as bungee jumping or canyoning. Or how about a visit to the Teatro Dimitri in Verscio?
