Die Jugendherberge liegt direkt in der Fußgängerzone von Riva und man darf hinfahren. Dort ist ein abgesperrter Parkplatz, der nur verlassen werden kann, wenn die Rezeption besetzt ist. Als Fußgänger hat man durch einem Code jederzeit Zugang. Leider gibt es keine Möglichkeit zu essen oder sich Essen zuzubereiten. Es gibt aber jede Menge Restaurants in der Umgebung. Das Frühstück hat eine passable Auswahl.
