Great staff, honestly so helpful and nice in giving advice, explaining different hikes and excursions. The one lady at checkout changed my francs for me which I'm pretty sure isn't allowed, but it was great. Good facilities; only downside was the one toilet for the floor, but that's only a minor complaint. Definitely would stay here again. Recommend this place for sure
The location is close to the pier, but it takes me some time to find, receipt ion is very nice and good wifi connection!
A nice hostel I met, noting I can criticize. highly recommended.
So, if you are in Switzerland, you already know that everything is expensive. That being said, this is about as good of a deal as you can get on a hostel, and you're really not making to many sacrifices either. The location is 20 min away from most things, but there really aren't any other options to get you closer. I'd definitely say for Luzern, it's the best bang for the buck. I rated lower because I am comparing to other hostels across Europe in similar sized cities.
Clean, calm, well located, friendly staff and good equipment (kitchen ...)
the location is abt 15 mins from train station n the surrounding area is quite quiet n safe. the staff are friendly, i stayed in a private 3 bed room with my friends,it was clean and lovely with a little balcony,there are lockers in the room, it is sweet that there is a thing for you to hang your wet clothes or towels!!the bathroom n toilets are very clean,the kitchen has a microwave n the equipment that you can cook.
Excellent service....location and everything...:)
A little bit far from city centre but great view outside and peaceful.
Very good and I will come again! Thank you Markus and staff! Diana

I love the location of the place! The walk from the train station to the hostel also offers a nice scenery of the lake and the park.
This hostel is located along beautiful lake. Staffs are kind and they have good kitchen facility. Just keep in mind that check in time is after 4pm then you can have beautiful time there.
Everything is fine. Only the distance is a little bit far from the center and the bus stop is also not that near. The check-in time is till 4pm which is strange because others are normally 2pm.
Great backpackers, I would definitely stay again. Clean, comfortable and friendly. And the location! Lake views from the rooms
Hostel is further away from train station although surrounded by a beautiful lake. One of the staff (older woman) is extremely rude. Did not greet us upon our arrival, and when we asked her a question she rudely responded with "I only have two hands". NOT the typical greeting you expect after a long commute. Other staff members were fine.
Quite and Clean! There is a great kitchen and tables. Also, it provides free post cards.
This hostel was very disappointing for the price. The staff was brusque and closed the office at 10 a.m. (even though two people were in the office, they refused to help people). There were two kitchens but cooking is forbidden before noon. Rooms are truly basic (a bed, a table, and a locker) and there is only one female and one male bathroom for a block of about 10 rooms. It is a LONG walk from the train Overall I was really disappointed. I feel the cost was too high for what was provided.
