Welcome to our hostel

The YH Montebello welcomes you in the heart of Ticino. Situated at the bottom of the Castle Montebello, part of the Unesco world heritage, it is only 15 minutes away from the railway-station in the historical centre of Bellinzona. It is an ideal departure point for excursions and also a stop on the main North-South axis of the Alps. The singles and doubles rooms offer you a comfortable privacy, for groups and families we have bigger rooms and dormitories. Bath and showers are placed on each floor. The YH Montebello offers as well multifunctional rooms for parties, conferences and seminaries with the possibility of renting some technical equipment.

The law of the Ticino canton forbids to accommodate young people under 16 years old: they can only stay if there is an adult person with them.

Super Nett, von vor der Anreise bis zur Abreise allerbestens "Betreut worden". Mille Gracie!!

The location is quiet, a great place for solitude. My room had a view of the castle and gardens, which were very tranquil and had lounge chairs in the garden for relaxing. The Village of Bellinzona is surrounded by beauty, with many people getting around on bicycle, and fantastic green spaces along the river for riding, walking, etc. I only would have liked to stay 2 weeks or months instead of 2 nights!

Personale gentilissimo, ubicazione molto comoda per la visita della città e dei dintorni. Se si viaggia in auto è consigliabile prenotare il posto auto perché ce ne sono pochi. Colazione a buffet buona, molto abbondante e varia.

I just liked it there. Nice staff. For the booking, communication was poor, as they didn't receive my messages and I didn't receive theirs.
