Menaggio Youth Hostel La Primula
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Stayed here for two nights and it was good. Lots of people, lively, a good atmosphere. No lockers in the room and we had to change rooms the next day which was really inconvenient. There's also a lockout period. Because of those things, our packs were left in the common room for all to see and access (except for the lockout period). Sunday night BBQ was really good. Staff is friendly. It's within walking distance to the city and bus station. Breakfast is included and was typical (bread, yogurt, coffee, etc..). Nice hikes in the area. The hostel had a lot of resources and material for things to do in the city, which was great. The only things that make me hesitant to stay here again are 1.possibility of having to change rooms (inconvenient and we weren't the only ones) 2. no luggage storage.

We were the victims of an error on HI's end, leading to no transmission of our booking to the hostel itself, but the owner and staff did everything they could to accommodate us. The atmosphere is great, the location is great, the food is great... it's all hard to beat.

Our only complaint was the heat at night. We don't need air conditioning, but a simple fan would work wonders in those rooms.

Lake como is a beautiful place to visit and this hostel made it even better. Mind you its a hostel so you aren't going to be staying in the lap of luxury. They have dinner every night that is better than any restaurant around. Especially the bbq that they make on sunday nights. There are tons of hiking trails around the area so if you are into that this is the right pace for you.

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.
