Reviewed 13 June 2014

Its a cheap place to stay with a lot of things you can do. Good food in the village. They have everyday some specials at the hostel. And they offer dinner, so if you're too tired to go out, you can eat there.

Staff fantastically helpful.
Views incredible.
Great town to stay in (Bellagio is very very busy).
Meals available and free breakfast (massive plus).
The only critique was that it closes for a few hours during the day so you have to wait around for it to reopen. They accommodate for this with baggage storage and things to look at about the hotel while you wait.
Everyone staying there were really lovely (no rowdy, party hostel people). Attracts easy going, chilled people looking for a quiet getaway.

Its the best option if you don't want to spend too much money. The views from the rooms were astonishing. The people is really kind and help you in everything you need. The food is good and cheap. Menaggio village is really charming and its perfectly conected with belaggio and varena with boat. The only thing that could be better are the bathrooms, but for the prize it's ok.
I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE!

We stayed in this hostel, primarily for the price -we had 4 nights for 80€! I was worried about the rooms, as there are not many pictures of them, but ours was clean and tidy and although basic, the view from the balcony was one that you could pay 100s of euros for! There are small lockers for valuables -take a padlock if you have one, but the hostel felt so safe anyway! The staff were really friendly and helpful (and spoke really good English!). The toilet/shower facilities were perhaps the worst aspect of the hostel. They are cleaned everyday, but are obviously very well used (it gets quite hot, so we were having 2/3 showers a day!) I wouldn't let this put you off however, because they are acceptable -and everything else is exceptional! We also had plenty of hot water for showers. The food was great (we weren't sure on the BBQ, but the pizza and pasta were fantastic!). Overall such a good trip, Menaggio was also bigger and better than we expected! When can I go back?!?

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness centre (but the lake is so good to swim in!) The room we booked was a...

Myself and a few friends stayed at the hostel on a cycling holiday and had a wonderful time. The location is just off the lake with views across to bellagio , the accomodation is basic ,clean and everything you want for a lovely Italian experience.The food is home cooked and was perfect for our hungry appetites after many miles cycling with wine and beer available from the hostel at a very reasonable price. The staff were friendly student types who brought vibrancy to the place and Fabio the manager was a real star taking interest in our cycling and suggesting routes.
I would recommend this hostel to anyone , you will not be disappointed.

This has been my favorite hostel on my entire 6 month journey. Quaint, homey place with nice accomodations, free wifi, computer and laundry access. You can rent bikes and kayaks from the hostel, and the hostel plans great activities regularly, including cooking classes, foosball tournaments, and climbing and canyoning outings.

This hostel provides a very intimate, special environment where you can interact with people from all over the world.
