    We stayed there for three nights and traeted Salo as our "camp" for expeditions around Garda Lake. The hostel offers very clean rooms with really comfortable beds. Their sizes resemble the London standards (not too big) but spacious enough for people intending to sleep there only. Clean though not very modern bathroom with a shower. Rooftop is definately their great addvantage - well equipped in tables, chairs and armchairs to admire the amazing view. Great value for money. Super firendly staff at the reception that makes your stay even nicer. I will stay there again even in a group of friends or with family.

    Nothing to mention in regards of dislikes.

    For me this was first stay in hostel, was expecting something unexpectable :) it was great, we had 2 bed room with private bathroom, so did not really feel the hostel style. Very clean and modern, good breakfast, perfect location.

    Rooms are small, but it is expected having a hostel. Parking is not particularly spacious, but the guys at the reception help to find a convinient place, so, it is not a problem. It is not cheap, but this is Garda.

    The hostel is well situated, not the first line, but close to the lake and the center. The terrase on top of the building is nice. Everything is clean and the staff is really nice and helpful.

    La Garda Hostel is probably the best organized hostel that I have ever seen. All in all, it reminded more hotels than a hostel. The staff was exceedingly pleasant. Everything was really clean. Lake Garda is a few minutes' walk away.

    It was a perfect place, very clean and quite, not too far from the water shore. The supermarket was just behind the corner, all restaurants maybe 5-15 mins by walk. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Noise of traffic was disturbing so you couldn't sleep with the window open or closed as air conditioning was also just as loud. It's a good place for back packing but not suited to our type of accommodation, which was my fault as I was distracted when booking and did not realise it was a located right on the corner of the street block . Photos were perhaps a little deceiving but staff were excellent and room was clean. Room tiny for the price considering we stayed in higher level hotels with a bigger room, better view and quieter for the same amount on lake Garda.

    Rooftop with a view.

    The map given by the info point of Salò was brutal. There was a roundabout missing, and only a handful of major roads were labelled. Get your own map or you'll be lost! Luckily there was a sign off of the main road pointing out the hostel!

    The location was prime. A 2 minute walk from the lake and a lot of cute waterside restaurants. The room was comfortable, spacious and had a cubbie for our valuables. There was a rooftop terrace with lawn chairs and beanybags which was gorgeous. There was a games space with a foosball and a pool table, and breakfast was great! Very impressed. Incredible value. I'll definitely be recommending this hostel.

    They don't have a guest kitchen or fridge which is very disappointing for a hostel. It was one of the more expensive hostels in Italy (but you do get more for your money).

    One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in, comfy beds and large lockers with no extra fee for renting a padlock. Every bed has a plug socket, reading lamp and USB power source. The sun terrace on the roof is nice in the evening as it gets the breeze off the lake. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel is a 2 min walk from the lake and 3 mins from a large supermarket (ItalMark)

    small room, BUT not too smal. I spent a lot of nights in much smallerin 3-4 stars hotels in big european cities.

    A lot! Staff, effective AC, breakfast, bar, consierge services at the level of 3 - 4 star hotel. Nice places to seat outside the rooms. Good for group of friends and for family with small children. The "hostel" name and lack of "stars" do not impact the really good quality of services. Friendly for motorbikers!!!

    I paid for a bed in a female dorm but ended up having the room to myself! Hotel is clean with modern facilities. Great array of options for breakfast.
