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.


I love this place...although a bit far from the station, I can highly recommend!!


Beautiful view, very clean, lovely staff, great atmosphere to hang out, really nice hostel! A long walk from town, but it is a beautiful one by the lake.


위치는 캐리어끌고 걸어가기에 한..20분정도걸렸고 걸어가기는 10~15분이면충분합니다 시설도 정말 깨끗했고 동네도 조용하고 안전해서 진짜진짜 좋았어요!ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


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!


Great hostel!

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.
