It is a little bit of a hike to the hostel. Be prepared for that. But once you are there, you are well rewarded. It is beautiful! I felt very safe and I enjoyed the nature walk down to the town of Como every day. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and they will pick you up if you arrive back late as to not make you walk the hill. Great food, atmosphere - I would definitely recommend this hostel.
Great place and location. The staff were really friendly and accommodating, especially when it came to holding our luggage on the day we checked out so we could explore the town before our late train out. Great value for money, simple, clean and safe. Be great for one or two nights if you're sharing a bathroom - if you had an en suite you'd probably stay a week. The attached restaurant is outstanding, even if you don't stay at In Riva al Lago, you should eat here! Thanks for the great introduction to Italy.
