Liked: Great food and sense of community.

Disliked: Super hot at night made it difficult to sleep. Menaggio a great town to stay in, though not as well connected to transportation options as Varenna. Wifi didn't really work.

Liked: For startes, the staff was friendly and sociable. They not even show you around and give and give advice, but also try to hava a friendly chat with you. The hostel itself is very easy to find, since it is just 5 min walk from the ferry station. The hostel has its own beach, which is a big advantage when the other one chargable. Another cool thing is that the hostel has their own restaurant and bar and their quite cheap.

Disliked: The rooms were ok, but they didn't have a proper ventilation. Therefore it was quite stuffy. Also the food wasn't soo great.

Liked: Great atmosphere. Awesome helpful staff. One of them even tried to put my blabla car on his card and let me pay him the money. The view is perfect one of the best places I have stayed.

Disliked: The only downfalls were the showers and no locks on the doors.
