Riva del Garda Hostel

Hostel Riva del Garda

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The Riva del Garda hostel is located in the centre of this lively harbour town, only a few steps from the enchanting Lake Garda, with a stunning mountain backdrop.

The hostel boasts a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with common room, games room and TV room, which makes it a great place to meet people. You’ll also find a restaurant onsite for those that want to sit back and enjoy the local cuisine. Free WIFI is also available.

The Riva del Garda hostel is centrally located to the Northern part of Lake Garda. The town stretches along the harbour and spreads up to small streets that open onto piazzas. Whilst a popular holiday destination, the town still retains its old charm with plenty of bars and traditional pavement cafés. For watersport enthusiasts you can walk east towards the village of Torbole where you’ll follow a promenade that stretches for 3km along the lakeside, which is a popular spot for windsurfers. As well as a regular ferry service that will take you from the north to the south of the lake, Riva del Garda has a bus service that will take you to the east of the lake to Peschiera or the west to Densenzano.

Das Hostel in die Jahre gekommen Und ihm fehlt Charme, gemeinsame Aufenthaltsräume, eine Kochgelegenheit, ein ausgewogenes Frühstück (es gab nur weiße Brötchen, keine Früchte (nur einen abgestanden Obstsalat), Pulverkaffee. Außerdem waren die Matratzen durchgelegen. Auch sehr ungü musste jeden Tag zwischen 9-15 Uhr das Hostel wegen Reinigungsdienst. Insgesamt, war es außer der exzellenten Lage, das Geld (20€ im 6-er Zimmer) nicht Wert.
