The bathroom in the morning was a bit dirty
Les chambres manqueraient de quelques rangements (porte manteau, étagère, table de nuit ?), mais tout est bien organisé à part cela.
Very warm welcomeat the desk. Hostel located very close to city center, optimal for hanging out. Room very clean, as well as the toilet. Only point to be improved: add dark curtains, otherwise sun lits the room up too early in the morning, making it hard to keep on sleeping.
Everywhere in Switzerland is over priced, this is about the best you can do. I was impressed by how quiet the hostel was for its proximity to the train station, the bedrooms are on the opposite side so sleep is not disturbed by noise from the trains. Helpful staff. A shame that breakfast, towels and printing are not included in the price. At many other places printing your next travel ticket is free or 10 cents, so 40 cents per page is a micro example of how over priced this country is.
Absolutely fantastic experience. The place was spotless with great rooms and very clean shared bathrooms. Fantastic location, right by the train station, and incredible views from our balcony. Only downside is reception is closed from noon to 3, but that's a small complaint in an overall top-notch experience.

Shower room has minor problem, just too open. People from outside can see when someone walk in or out.
Thanks for the stay at Your Guesthouse. Great location near to the Railroad and the center of Lausanne. Also the breakfast location near to the Guesthouse could really be recommended. As I am a Train enthusiast the location where great! I could follow the trains from the balcony or throug the bathroomwindow. At evening/night no one of us where disturbed by the noise of the Trains. I would definetely choose the same Guesthouse next time I travel to Lausanne!

Great stay! I loved how clean the hostel rooms and bathrooms were. Not the hostel to stay at if you're looking to party but it was clean, peaceful and easy to find. The staff was very nice and helpful
Great hostel! The kitchen had basically every appliance you could think of. The lockers were great and it meant that the roomas weren't too crowded with bags. The linen was clean and comfortable. I was worried that you'd be able to hear the trains with the hostel being so close to the station but all the rooms are on the other side of the building so you don't hear anything. I ended up sleeping in because it was so quiet. My only disappointment was that I only stayed for one night.
Very Close to the train station. Clean. WiFi is available in the room. You must pay 2 CHF more as City Tax when you arrive. Only a curtain for each bathroom which made me feel not relaxed enough when took a shower. Shower water stops automatically every minute(s) and you have to press the tap again and again. We lived in a mix-room with 3 girls and a guy, the guy snored really very loud that we couldn't even fall asleep. Breakfast is not included, price of this hostel is high at least for me.
I stayed here 2 nights in a shared dorm and I really enjoyed it. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and made you feel relaxed. The beds were clean and comfortable, and I had everything there that I needed.
Right by the train station so it was ideal for the overnight stay.
I originally had a mixed room but the lady, Laura (?) was kind enough to move me to an all women room since she noticed I was going to be with 3 other guys. Hostel is an easy walking distance from the train station (5 minutes). Great location for your home base. Hostel was clean and organized! Pleasant stay.
standard hostel, no big ups or downs, staff has no clue how the computers work, though they charge you to use them
Staff was very nice and helpfull! Atmosphere is not very personal, but there are good facillities: kitchen is very nice. Showers could have a little more privacy.
I like to have breakfast to start the day, but when booking no b'fast was stated. Staff were helpful, no problem Getting them to recharge something, takes hours, so handy to have it done safely behind counter. Hostel was very clean location was good, only 6mins to station, a bit longer when your trying to find it. A member of staff, Laura, I think suggested I go on a walk hero ugh vineyard area above lake Geneva. It was interesting and different after spending much time in cities.
Friendly staff, good facility...worth to stay when you're in Lausanne
I think you shouldn't charge the usage of internet on your desktops, as there is a free wifi, and therefor you make a difference between guest with and without laptops.

I liked the location because it's close to the train station and metro, except there is a big hill to climb to get there and stairs to get up to the room. It can be exhausting! I didn't like the fact that we had to buy towels and sheets and didn't get the money back upon checkout. The room was clean but no air conditioning and since its close to the train station you hear the trains all night if you keep the window open! It didn't have the hostel environment, but would stay again!
