Very friendly reception staff with good advice offered and a quick check in, shared bathrooms e.t.c were clean and tidy, good lockers in room and comfortable beds, only thing lacking was the breakfast, it would be really good to have it prepared and included in price


Lovely location. Across the road from the park and the lake. The hostel has 2 kitchens which is nice. The staff were great. The only thing is the room was a bit smelly (maybe because they don't get aired out much because there are a lot of mosquitos in the area). If there were some room deoderisers that might be good. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, comfortable and a laundry service for 4.50 Franks.


Very kind staffs gave me good information about Rigi and Titlis. Titlis souvenir cap exchange coupon was so good.


Pretty far from the center of town, but it's proximity to the lake helped make up for that. There are tons of signs to help you find it from the train station. The staff were helpful and even let us add more laundry to our load after it had started. Basic facilities and good value. Also, the restaurant next door was expensive but really good!


Very nice common area with lots of places to sit and games to play. Also liked having a balcony in the room, was nice to sit on it in the evening. Staff was helpful as needed. Only difficulty was location, quite a long walk to the main part of town, i was feeling it after walking it at least 10 times.


No complaints!
