By joining us you'd be surrounding yourself with like minded travelers while throwing yourself head first into the Italian life style. Our hostel is a favourite hang out spot for locals and half of our team is made up of travel loving italians, while the rest are international peeps who decided to settle here after wondering the world. Breathe in the style, drink up the spritz, munch on the aperitivo and have fun! If living like a local sounds good, but you still need your wiggle room, keep in mind that you'd not only be living in the center of town, but also in the center of Europe, so get-aways to pretty much anywhere are easy and convenient! You will be staying in a shared dorm with ensuite bathroom and a nice big locker to keep your things safe. You will have access to all common areas of the hostel, including the guest kitchen which is packed full of free food at your disposal. Everyday we set up breakfast and dinner buffets, and there's fresh fruit and biscuits all over the place in case you need a snack. Como is a gorgeous and romantic city, just a short train ride away from bustling Milan, that easily caters to all interests and tastes. We provide all kinds of info and support to get you to anywhere you'd like to go, as well as help you find what could interest you. Como is the perfect home to nature lovers and outdoors adventurers, being right on the lake and surrounded bu luscious hills. It is also very well connected to other towns in Italy and Europe, making it the perfect basecamp to explore the area.
Here at Ostello Bello we're a great big Italian family. We love to eat, we love to drink, we love to love, but most of all we love travelers. We welcome people from all over the world to our lovely home in the heart of Como, right on the lake's shore, and it's such a blast! We started off as a group of friends, afflicted by the travel bug, who wanted to host fellow travelers in our home town, providing all of those things we loved to find in hostels when we were the ones doing the traveling. In time we've grown into a big, loud and happy family. Everyday all kinds of folks walk into our home and, for as cheesy as it sounds, they also walk into our hearts, sharing stories, passions and laughs. Our motto is "Questa casa non è un albergo", so welcome, wherever you come from, welcome to Ostello Bello!
