Welcome to our hostel

Ostello Villa Olmo is set in a beautiful lakeside location, where guests will have a wonderful experience in this warm and friendly hostel. The town is within easy reach as frequent ferries cross Lake Como and there are lots of things to see there, including the beautiful art galleries and quaint shops.
Ostello Villa Olmo provides free breakfast and extra meals are available that taste delicious and are reasonably priced. The hostel also has a TV room, common room, Wi-Fi and Internet access, a garden and a cycle rental store.
Como is in Lombardy, 45km north of Milan and in the Province of Como. Como is only a few miles from the Swiss border and 20 minutes from Lugano. The mountains around the lake are 2000m high and Lake Como is up to 1350 feet deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Europe.

Among 5 Italian HiHostel that I experienced, this one was the best. Probably there is a better one, who knows? I recommend this.

En general, está bien por su ubicación y limpieza. Por lo contrario, el personal no es demasiado amable y existe una normativa bastante estricta. No puedes salir del hostal más tarde de las 00:00h porque cierran puertas. Lo peor de todo es que no puedes salir ni del mismo edificio donde se encuentran las habitaciones a partir de las 00:30h. Siguiendo esta norma, no puedes ni salir al patio común, fumar o salir a dar una vuelta por el jardín si te agobias ....

The staying at Villa Olmo was really nice. The room was tidy and clean, very close to the lake. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast she made was also very good! Thank you for providing me with such a wonderful experience. The only problem was that there seemed to be no WiFi in the hostel, which was a little inconvenient.

Its my 4th stay at villa olmo. A lovely spot for staying on lake como which is beutiful. easy access by train or bus. Just a two minute walk to the lake front from the hostel. A ten minute walk into town via the lakefront. Good simple breakfast included and tasty evening meal if required. Long may it continue.
