Liked: The staff was very friendly. The location was perfect too.

Disliked: The showers sucked, but it's common in a hostel. I also didn't like that they said "free" breakfast, but they charged for cereal.

Liked: Great place, friendly staff. Menaggio is a nice little town. Preferable to Como this time of year especially. I rented a bike and cycled to Switzerland which was really fun! Got heat exhaustion a bit, but the staff kept an eye on me which was very much appreciated.

Disliked: Breakfast was scarce, but on the upside you can get a plate of scrambled eggs for 2 euros. Good luck finding eggs for breakfast on continental Europe elsewhere!

Liked: Todas las personas del Hostel me trataron muy bien y me dieron toda la información que necesité para viajar. Realmente muy amigables. El hostel mantiene una atmósfera muy cálida y amena. La ubicación también es buena: esta a pocas cuadras del Centro de Menaggio. Paran colectivos en la puerta que te llevan al centro o a otros pueblos y estás cerca del puerto del que salen los ferrys para los otros pueblos.

Disliked: El desayuno que viene incluído es: Cafe o te, pan, mermeladas o manteca y jugo.

Disliked: The only thing i can complain about is that the dorms were very hot when we were there. A fan would have been greatly appreciated! But no reason not to stay here, its a great place!
