Nice hostel with a good kitchen which was a good way to save money in an expensive city. The rooms were spacious with big lockers and comfy beds. The staff were lovely, particularly Andrea who went above and beyond to help us several times. Contrary to other reviews we had no problem with Mosquitos. Only complaint would be the lack of a hostel-like atmosphere. Would stay here again!

Pricey by hostel standards, but not by Lucerne standards. The surrounding area has all the charm of a business park. Not a central location from the old town, but it's not much of a walk. Lots of Asian student customers who keep to themselves. The hostel sells food stuffs at slightly higher prices. (Think 3 CHF for .33 L soda) The staff was quite friendly. Trees obscured my view of the lake.

A bit of a walk from the main station but not too far. Staffs are really kind. Shower rooms were clean overall (but not perfectly). A pleasant stay overall!

The hostel is amazing, I little bit expensive, but a good value for money! They could have a promotion for stay more than 3 days. I just didn't like the rule about the shower, but Is totally understandable.

Ten minutes from the train station, located in front of a nice and quiet park which limits with the lake, this hostel is a great place to stay in Lucerne for a nice price and surrounded by extremely welcoming people. I stayed with my girlfriend in a twin private room. Everything was very clean and well disposed. We used the kitchen for having dinner in our time there. The best: the quality/price relation, the room and facilities The worst: being 15 minutes from the center of Lucerne

The location is a little bit far from train station which is tiring everytime we walk from the city center to hostel. However, I love the lake view, and the wifi connection is good.

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.

Near the lake, walk outside you can have a wonderful view. A little bit far away from the station and the city center. The staff is nice and helpful but the night that I checked in I didn't see many people so it was too quiet.

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.
