Locarno Youth Hostel Reviews


The hostel counts more than 190 beds, in rooms for 2, 4, and 6 people.
We are near the center of Locarno, in the sunny Ticino, the south of Switzerland. The area is wonderful, between lake and mountains. There are many cultural possibilities and things to be done: music, arts, cinema, sports, architecture, markets, botanic gardens, local restaurants, walks and trekkings in the mountains, visits to the valleys with their nice villages (Maggia valley, Verzasca, Onsernone and Centovalli), in summer the beaches and water sports on the lake and in the rivers. There are several festivals (International Filmfestival, Jazz festival, Theatrefestival and so on).

In winter the climate is mild and warmer compared to the rest of Switzerland, appropriate for seminars, relax, walks, visits to the Christmas markets, the concerts and the artistic activities.
