Figino Hostel

Hostel Figino

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Figino is a charming ex-fishing village in Ceresio, on the banks of Lake Lugano. Southern flair is also noticeable at the youth hostel. The luxuriant vegetation, the appropriately styled patrician's house, cooking with a Ticino accent and the nearby lake entice one to a refreshing stay with dolce far niente. There are certainly several things to be discovered - not least the picture book villages in one of the traditional holiday regions of Ticino.

A forest, a bowls alley, two nature areas and a great surrounding. Stay in the old patrician's house and its adjacent buildings. Eat as you should in the South. Here you will have an excellent holiday. Incidentally, the youth hostel is large enough and split in such a way that families can have some peace.

Amazing place and real discovery, with the mountain hikes starting in the backyard, the lake for swimming nearby, the busstop with free transportation to Lugano and the overall Ticino region just in front of the hostel, fantastic garden with multiple options for the kids to gather and play together. It is a real surprise to hear that the Swiss Youth Hostel Association has decided to close this hostel at the end of 2017. These are the kind of paces that should be protected for the future.

Insgesamt guter Eindruck! Merkwürdig aber, dass Handtücher nur bei eigener Dusche auf dem Zimmer gestellt werden! Sollte für alle Gäste ebenso wie Bettwäsche gestellt werden.

Sehr nettes und hilfsbereites Servicepersonal. Die Ausstattung ist sauber aber schon etwas älter.
