Liked: Very friendly and sociable atmosphere. This hostel was different from all others I've visited so far. So it was funny and interesting experience.Delicious food! Good wifi.

Disliked: Very tiny toilets, no shelves in the rooms, only one place for all four people in the room to charge your electronic devices. No free lockers, rooms not locked too so didn't feel very safe there.

Liked: Beautiful view from the hostel, close to ferry and bus stops.

Disliked: Weird that they only serve dinner at 8pm. The toilets are sooo small your legs almost hit the door.

Liked: The location is very good in terms of the view as it is onlooking Lake Como. It is set back slightly up the hill so you can sit and look out onto the lake in all its beauty.

Disliked: The staff didn't seem all that happy to have you there. Simple requests were met with either bemusement or a look of slight disdain; as if you had disturbed them from their busy day of sitting.

Liked: The dinner (offered at a discounted rate for hostel guests) is good and fairly cheap. Cheapest place I could find on Lake Como, and very easy to get to Bellagio/Varenna by ferry. My room had a balcony with a nice view of the lake. Public internet is helpful if you don't have a wifi device (you have to pay to use it though)

Disliked: They had overbooked one night I was there so I had to stay in someone else's room which was sort of uncomfortable. Other than that no problems.

Liked: The location was good and enjoyed waking up to the view of the lake. Also the dinner was pretty good.

Disliked: We arrived at 2.05pm and only until my friend convinced them, they let us check in. The 3 hour break is terrible and is when most people arrive. There was also a lack of atmosphere.
