Overall great stay, a few inconveniences however. They lock the kitchen at night and in the afternoon and the vending machine was not working.

friendly staff and nice facilities. plenty of kitchen space which is a very good thing to have in Switzerland. bit of a walk from the train station but not too bad
Good hostel, great kitchen but on the small side, rooms good size didn't feel too cramped in there at all. Would return for sure if ever in Lucerne again
It's not worth because no breakfast, no transportation ticket and wired check in time.
Staff at reception was really nice and you can get service in various language, so it's really convenient. I used twin room in comparably cheap price.
Around 15-20 mins walk from train station, staff are very helpful, wifi is good in common area, kitchen is nice, check in time is a bit late (4pm), but there was a staff in the reception to help me to settle my luggue so that I could go out without heavy baggage.

역에서 멀지만 호스텔앞에 호수가 가까워서 좋다. 백사장도 있어서 쉴 겸 여유 부리기 좋음! Good!!
Nice hostel! I stayed here for 2 nights and didn't find any problem. The location may be bit far from old town but it's a nice walking at the lakeside. The price is acceptable in the overpriced country like Switzerland. Will recommend this.
The hostel is easy to find, sign posted at main station to ensure you go the right way. It was further than I though it would be though, fine distance without suitcase. Private double room comfortable and spacious with own balcony. Shared bathrooms clean and I think if you plan the time you shower well, you wont have to wait. The kitchen is great, we cooked 2 of the 3 nights there as Lucerne is so expensive to eat out and can get amazing cheese from the local shops to make amazing dinners.
the room is nice and clean. bathroom and toilet are clean too. the wifi access is good. staffs are nice and friendly.
A little bit far from the train station and a long to find it. the first thought of booking this hostel is because i may be beside the lake and may have good view of the lucerne... but it turns out to be nothing. and we walked to the hostel during evening, it is very dark the whole way. but the twin room is clean and comfortable. the kitchen is quite dirty, a lot of dishes there, unwashed. and it is only allowed to store the luggage till 4pm something. not very convenient.
This was a nice hostel a short walk from the train station. The staff were friendly and helped me to print off my train ticket even though they were very busy. The people in my dorm were lovely. And other guests were nice. Had a good chilled atmosphere. ..people reading talking and playing board games.
Other hostels take note, THIS is the gold standard. Absolutely fantastic facilities, the staff really go out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Things like having proper showers, a quiet common area, fast internet and free postcards are the little things that make all the difference. Above all, I felt as though this hostel was designed for ADULTS and they certainly treat you like one. Overall it was excellent.
''The office is closed from 10 am to 4 pm" - 6 hours during the day! I can't agree this is very client friendly. The cleaner around will only let you drop your luggage and is not able to provide any information. The staff do not provide any advise as to how to make your stay more enjoyable and convenient. If you want to know how to visit the Titlis or Pilatus, please go to travel information center. If you want to know more about the city transportation, please consult the bus company....
The hostel and staff were lovely. It's very clean and the park with a fake beach where you can swim is in right in front. It's about a 15 minute walk from the trainstation and 20 minutes from old town but it's a lovely walk. Great facilities and comfortable rooms
2007년 스위스여행갔다가 기억이 너무좋아서 이번여행에서도 1박했습니다 중심과 조금 거리가있긴하지만 충분히 도보 가능합니나
Even though it´s infront of a nice park and the lake, maybe it´s a little far from the city center. Staff could be a little more helpful. But it´s one of the cleanest hostels I´ve ever been to. Room is comfortable and with lockers.
Absolutely no atmosphere at this hostel. Good clean rooms with lockers .
The hostel was about 15 minutes away from the train station on foot. It's quite easy to find, especially if you have a map.-you basically walk around the lake. The facilities are good, but the beds are metal and not the best. All in all it's not a bad choice, especially considering how expensive Switzerland is.
