HI - Torricella Trasimeno Lake Hostel - La Casa sul Lago Reviews

Amazing people

This was just the thing we needed -- a perfect place to relax and enjoy for a couple days. The staff made our experience unforgettable. They were truly beautiful people, very kind and warmhearted. They provided all the amenities one could hope for in a hostel. Free internet, free linen, free breakfast, great lounge area, felt like you were in a comfy home. They had a kitchen available for us to use, laundry, and even bicycles. The atmosphere was great, they were friendly and played music all the time. Provided pick-up/drop-off at train station for us. They were very focused on making our experience a good one, it felt like a luxurious Bed and Breakfast in comparison to many other hostels. Really great experience, hope to return to visit one day!


A great place run by great people -- couldn't fault the staff for their helpfulness or friendliness. Rooms were very nice -- there were two bathrooms in our six-bedded dorm, which we had to ourselves. You can also book double rooms. Its right by the lakeside in a tiny little town (served by several buses and trains a day) -- a great place to relax!


I stayed there twice in my life in May 2001 and June 2002 with a girl from Perugia in an almost deserted hostel. The staff (two old men and a woman like your grandmother and grandfather) were discreet and simple people. I have the best memories of my life from there probably not only for the hostel. It's simply in my memory forever.


HI - Torricella Trasimeno Lake Hostel - La Casa sul Lago Reviews from the Web

Liked: amazing place, feels more like staying at a resort than a hostel Didn't like: a bit difficult to reach by public transport but worth the effort.


Liked: LOVED IT! A great free breakfast, free internet, free bikes to use to ride around the lake, right next to the train station! We went on a thursday night which was free pasta night too! So free dinner! and a pool and gorgeous setting! I completely recommend it!!! Didn't like: NOTHING


Liked: The staff are outstanding. They are extremely helpful, friendly, and 'go the extra mile'. Giangiacomo and Agnese are perfect hosts. They look after their guests really well. The room I stayed in was beautiful and it is in a perfect location. I will definitely stay there again because I intend on going back to Lake Trasimeno. Didn't like: This wasn't a big problem because the hostel is so fantastic but there was a school group on a trip. Sixteen year olds have a lot of staying power and were up for practically the whole night running around the hostel.


Liked: Proximity to Lake, group dinners and wine, bikes and boats free, free breakfast Didn't like: mosquitos


Liked: amazing staff, beautiful location heaps to do, breakfasts are delicious, you can take bikes out to the lake for free, you can swim in the pool. its is the best hostel i have ever stayed in! go there! Didn't like: .


Liked: The people, they are really nice, and kind, and the hostel is great!!! Didn't like: The address in the web, we were wrong at 10pm and we had to take a taxi to get to the hostel in Torrisella. In the web, the address is not so clear, so you should change that


Liked: We've been backpacking for 6 weeks all over Europe and this was by far our favorite hostel we stayed at. The hostel is actually located in Torricella, not Perugia, so don't think you'll be near the city. But the hostel is so great, we didn't even leaver Torricella. The hostel gives you free bikes and you can go to the island for very cheap and bike around there. It's a great place to relax, the staff is awesome, and literally right across from the pier on Lake Trasmino. The rooms are huge- you definitely get way more than you paid for. Loved it. Didn't like: Absolutely nothing.


Liked: the hostel was fantastic. the first day i showed up it just so happened to be "free pasta night". the pasta was delicious and it was a fantastic way of meeting the other lucky people that happened to stumble upon this hostel. the staff was friendly (depending on how much help you needed) and the character of the place was great.plus it was very cheap. Didn't like: most of the staff was great but there was one guy in particular that i was not so fond of. i needed to catch a very early train to naples from the town we were in. the hostel has a free shuttle service (which doesnt run from 4pm-7pm or something) but since my train was so early no o0ne was willing to give me a ride. which i understood. BUT i was looking to call a taxi to get to the station and when i asked for help ,as i did not have a taxi number or cell phone, the guy at the staff just answer with a very useless sentence along the lines of "wait until tomorrow and we will find you a train then". i had already searched the train schedule many times. i ended up missing my train and showing up in naples rougly 5 hours later.in addition the hostel is advertised in hostel bookers as being in perugia when in fact it is in a small town called Torricella. it is VERY hard to get to if you do not have a car. plus i overheard the owner yelling very loudly at one of the people staying there. im pretty sure she was out of line, but he did not handle it very well at all.i got the impression that the staff are very good at acting helpful but when it really comes to it they dont really care. of course there are expetions the lady who worked there was very helpful.


Liked: There is little not to like about this hostel! The facilities are amazing! Great common areas, beautiful gardens with hammocks to chill in, free bicycles to ride, massive shared kitchen, big buffet breakfast (the list goes on). This is a great place to get away from hectic city travel in Italy and chill for a few days. Didn't like: I didn't want to stay in Perugia so this isn't really a dislike for me, ill just say people should be warned that access to the city from here is quite difficult.
