Backpackers Lucerne was a good deal for the money- especially once we realized how expensive Switzerland is! Our party of two shared a 4 bed room with a couple from New Zealand, and they were fantastic roommates. We never had to wait for the showers, and I only had to wait a few minutes a couple times for the toilet. They have quiet hours posted, and everyone seemed to respect those hours. Located across the street from a public park and beach- this was the place to be, especially on Saturday

Great stay, only a short easy walk to town along the lake. Very comfortable and easy going place. Many thanks and look forward to coming back..definitely recommend you guys!


we booked this hostel because it was the only affordable one in lucerne. it was great! the rooms were nice and the lockers were big. the showers were nice and the kitchen was nice too. all and all a great stay


This hostel was very basic.Its 20 minutes from the city in the industrial area which isn't the nicest. The second night that we stayed, the university hostel in the same building, had a huge party with a band that didnt end until midnight, it was so loud,nobody was able to sleep.This would have been acceptable if the staff had communicated to their paying guests that this would be going on.The office is limited as the office hours are specific and you have to wait until 4pm to speak to somebody.
