Excellent hostel with a lot of advantages. The toilets and showers are very clean. Staff monitors the cleanliness of the common spaces and the rooms themselves. It located in a prime location in the mountains. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is varied, but the most common. It lacks a good breakfast. At the entrance to the hostel...

Great hostel in the BEST location! The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff polite and helpful. The included breakfast was also great. I would definitely choose to stay here again on my next trip to the region.

The location is perfect - 5 min to the lake, 5 min to the mountain to find the most wonderful view point ever on its top (Santa Barbara Church), in the heart of the city with its restaurants, italian ice-cream and many other stuff. Great value for money (there's not so many cheap options to live in Riva)

We spent 7 nights in Riva at Ostello Benacus which we used as a base for mountain biking in the surrounding area. The hostel is well equipped, exceptionally clean and enjoys a perfect location in the centre of the beautiful town. The hostel is very secure with a gated car park. The hostel staff were exceptionally efficient and very helpful...

Family friendly large hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, family room safe and clean, not too spacious but good enough. Meals cheap and plentiful, breakfast included, all al fresco. Easy walk to the beautiful lake, stunning scenery all around. Easy transfer by bus to and from Rovereto (€14.50 each way for 2 adults 3 children) if travelling by train.

This was the best hostel I stayed at in Italy. The staff was VERY friendly, warm and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were very tidy and clean, and the location is wonderful. Be sure to book ahead of time! Don't miss it!

Perfectly helpfull staff and in a great location. We stayed 2 nights and had a private room with 3 beds, secure parking only 3euros a night, you need to go to the hostel first to get a pass to be able to drive in the city centre.

I have stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, which was a great value for money! The rooms are very clean and spacious, sanitary facilities are good too. The only thing I missed was a common area to meet fellow travellers. Yes, it is closed untill 15.00, but this is clearly stated on the website, also, the bar across happily...

At the beginning booking and making a reservation were good but reality is little bit different. Hostel is closed between 10am-15pm (door also closed). If you arrived early you should wait with your luggages until opening. You can not leave your stuff. Breakfast between 7-9am. You should get up at 7am because showers are full in addition after shower you...
