Was nice and clean. There's not really a place to store your stuff securely in the room, but they do give you a locker which is secure and big enough for a backpack. The wifi works good and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Nice, quiet, and respectful guests. The bathrooms were very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. I will stay here again, if I go back to Lausanne!

I didn't like that I couldn't lock my bags up when I left them there for the day, and it's a bit of a hike up a hill, but the hostel itself was FANTASTIC. Easy to see from the train station. Great atmosphere, very clean, bright, amazing views of the mountains, and a nice large common area for eating and hanging out. Super friendly staff.

Lovely place, friendly staff, very secure and fab location for getting around and about in the city. Yes, it's right next to the train tracks but it wasn't disturbing at all. Only minor negative was the bed sheets: the duvet covers don't cover the duvet (it was just a sheet), so I- and the other people in my dorm so I don't think I was being dumb!- spent the night in an exposed duvet. I thought that was a bit shabby for an otherwise impeccably clean place.

As will be clear from the answers above, the hostel is very clean and well maintained, staff is friendly and the location is great. It would be nice to have somewhat more furniture inside the dorms, such as a little shelf to put your phone, book or valuables on during the night and a little cabinet to store stuff out of your backpack.

Right next to the train station and with the travel card provided at check in the metro as well, which gives you access to most of Lausanne quickly. Great Kitchen and lounge. Staff were fantastic and always helpful.

This hostel is very well located, right next to the train station, which is great. I only stayed for 2 nights, but the room and bathrooms were clean and the hallway locker is good to have. It's not very wide, but it's deep enough for a backpack, etc. or just to keep your valuables in. I didn't use the kitchen, but the lobby/lounge area was also very nice.

Would absolutely stay here again. Their kitchen was great and well equipped. Nice beds and restrooms/showers (very clean!). They have nice big lockers for valuables. I really loved the location. It is super close to an awesome park that has a stunning panoramic view of the lake. Walking distance to old town and the lakefront area. Beautiful city, great hostel!

2 night stay here. Only a few hundred meters from the main station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Beds and shower facilities were great however showers not lockable so limited privacy. Lockers in the hallway weren't big enough to handle anything much bigger than a school backpack. Fully equipped kitchen was a big plus

Hello, thanks for your nice comment. The lockers are made to lock your values and they are big enough for most part of our guests. Clothes, shoes and so on are usualy kept in the room. Nobody will still your socks or T-shirt around here :-). Best regards, Virginie

Nice hostel, but don't like the shower room facilities. There is no place to put the clothes in the showering room, so after showering, we need to go out to wear underwear which is sort of emberessing....
