I needed a cheap place for one night in the Como area. I booked a bed in this hostel even though the rooms have more beds than I prefer. The night I stayed there, there were only 3 or 4 other people in the men's dorm so it worked out OK for me. The facilities are decent but if the...

Stayed in Como this summer and had a wonderful experience. The staff were so friendly and helpful, we really felt at home there. We were very grateful to find that good English was spoken by the staff there, and they were able to recommend activities in the area for us, as well as give essential information on local bus times...

The staff was wonderful, extremly helpfull and very patient with all my questions about the lake and the surroundings.

The lady at the front desk is a one of the most helpful, smart, and friendly I've met! She spoke English, Italian, French, and German (I'm sure more) and knew how to get anywhere you wanted to go, and some places off the beaten path, like the beautiful section of Lago di Como near Bellagio, where you can swim for...

It doesn't look like much and the lockout time is a bit annoying, but it really is worth it! Breakfast is included in the price (bread, coffee, juice, cereal) as is wifi in the garden and dining room. It it literally 2 mins around the corner from some of the most gorgeous buildings on Lake Como and the staff are...

This is one of the best hostels that I stayed in during a recent trip to Italy - clean rooms with lots of air, lockers, garden, good showers, food on offer very good. Very friendly, trusting and patient staff with a wealth of info and tips. Seems to be a family-run hostel. 25 minutes walk from downtown Como, Lago di...

This was our third visit and the first time we had stayed in the family room. Very quiet, clean, spacious, but what makes Villa Olmo Hostel so special is the incredibly lovely family running it. The husband is a terrific chef, his delightful wife (or another lady, possibly their daughter?) is the first point of contact for guests. They are...

I have stayed at this place twice now, once in 1998 and once in 2009. Same owners. The lady that runs the place is very helpful and friendly. She has a wealth of info on touristy things to do. The rooms were clean. Off street parking is available fortunately. Nice place. Unfortunately had to sleep in the men's dorm and...

Villa Olmo Hostel is a great place to stay in Como on a budget. The staff is very helpful for sightseeing, and super friendly. The beds are in single-sex dorms, and my fellow travelers were very considerate while I stayed there. The hostel is located a pleasant walk to and from town, or the local bus stops right in front...
