  • This was probably the best experience I've ever had at a hostel. The location is excellent, the view is unbelievable, the staff members were super nice and helpful, and the overall atmosphere was just wonderful. I would recommend anyone to stay here, especially solo-travelers. There's a really great social environment and it's easy to meet people. The area is great for hiking, sightseeing, etc. and the general feel of the hostel was very laid back. I will definitely return!

  • A lively place for youths to have their staycation in Como. It was raining the entire time when we were there so we stayed indoor pretty much the whole time. There's books and board games at the main hall to kill time. Wifi is always on and off. Sometimes there's completely no wifi even at the main hall. Oh, and free breakfast!

  • This place is wonderful. The view is fantastic, the staff are friendly, and you're guaranteed to bump into interesting characters during your stay there. Lake Como is already beautiful, and La Primula Youth Hostel just adds to a great experience.
