Liked: Excellent location and views of the lake. Very helpful reception staff. Good atmospehere amongst guests. Close to other parts of Menaggio.

Disliked: There was no kitchen for residents but cooked meals could be purchased. They appear value for money but the temperamental chef over cooked most things providing limited fresh food. Vegetarian option was salami an frittata despite being asked if there was no meat! Limited to eating out after this.

Liked: The location was awesome. Well worth the hour bus trip from como.

Disliked: The amount of old people staying there, It was like we were in a retirement village. The food there was terrible and they won't let you bring food or drinks from outside. However the location made up for all the bad things.

Liked: The location is incredible, it's like being in a painting. I know this isn't the best word, but I have to say that the experience was sensual. You are immersed in this rich atmosphere of people, views, fabulous food, and you really feel part of it. Menaggio is kind of small but there's actually a lot to do there, and there are hydrofoils, ferries and regular boats to take you just about anywhere on the lake. The hostel also has its own sailboat. Can you beat that?

Disliked: I came away with a sort of 100% feeling of "wow". If I have to strain to think of something that could be better I would have to say that I wasn't very lucky with the weather.
