We had a very nice stay at this hostel. The hostel was clean, there were always people around, and they had a breakfast in the mornings. Wifi is only available in the lobby though, but it's not too much of a problem.
The location and the breakfast were good and the hostel has a good infrastructure, but the bathrooms on the floor that we're staying weren't working and there wasn't wifi on the room area, which is something unpractical for travelers. The common area gives more an atmosphere of a hotel, couldn't see many people getting around and knowing each other. In the other hand it seemed like a good place for families. I would recommend a stay, but it's a different hostel environment than the usual.
Getting rid of the push button shower would be a nice upgrade. I understand that it is designed to save water, but it is rather difficult to bathe in 30 second intervals. Also, motion activated lights in the bathroom need to be removed; they really just cause frustration and irritation, especially when going to bed, more than actually conserving energy. Instead consider doing a key card slot to activate all electricity in the room.
take to take bus between train station and hostel, but the hostel is close to attraction, which is really nice!
Great location just 10mins by bus from the train station close to the Casemates Bock, but it is in the valley so every day starts with an uphill hike! Rooms are basic but clean and spacious with a one locker per bed that easily took my 85ltr rucksack. Breakfast was included and plentiful with a good choice of cereals, fresh breads, meats and cheese, orange juice and hot drinks. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and the bar has a couple of nice beers on tap too! Highly recommended
Everything was great, clean, secure, nice staff. Cons: A little overpriced and no kitchen :(
A bit far from the train station, but it's close to the beautiful heritage! (Actually it is like located inside!!) easy to have a nice walk around the hostel.
A good hostel and I liked the food in the restaurant. Spacious rooms. Not really much atmosphere in the place but otherwise a relaxing and pleasant stay.
Check in time is far too rigid - wasted an hour waiting till they would give me a key --> Considering check out is so early, there's no reason I shouldn't have been able to get settled. Other than that - it was great! Met some lovely people ! Other than

wish there was more of a common room area/things to promote meeting other fellow travelers!!
It was a nice hostel, but felt like a dormitory in uni. Breakfast was basic but good enough (bread, cereal, hot drinks). The staff was helpful. 20 min walk from the train station. 10 min into town. This hostel definitely isn't a steal, but Luxembourg is expensive in general. I was upgraded from 6 bed to 4 bed with shower ensuite (although the shower was ice cold so I just used the one down the hall...)
Communal areas and games area closed a little early.
More like a youth/family hostel. Location is good, big bedrooms and clean bathrooms, The guy who works in the reception during the morning/day is really rude and cynical, very unhelpful. On the other hand, the guy who works on the afternoon/night was really nice. Nice breakfast, and the restaurant is a good option once the city centre can be a lil far away (and expensive) at night. Adailto (?), the portuguese guy from the restaurant is really nice! Wifi only in the lobby, really annoying.
Good hostel in an expensive city, nice location, great staff. Good breakfast buffet and very good dinner to be recommended.
But there is no WiFi in the room...

I don't recommend this hostel. it was clean room. but they are not friendly....
Reminds a university residence, spacious with common areas, pool, ping pong, washing machines, restaurant and separate WC/showers for men and women. However the wifi works only in the ground floor. Staff was ok but unable to give tourist's information. Breakfast was perfect. The area is close to the center and not too far from the train/bus station with two buses passing right in front. Bring a padlock for the lockers.
The hostel was nice and clean however it was a little isolating with the communal space no very inviting, the restaurant served nice food but was sightly expensive 10Euros per meal. The staff didn't know a lot about the local area, things to do, walking tours etc. which was disappointing. All in all a nice clean place just not ideal for a backpacker, solo traveler or someone wanting to explore the local area.
The only hostel in Luxembourg city and it's a good one! The only problem is that it's located on a valley, so if you have heavy backpacks be prepared to go up the hill! :)
Thank you for a great stay, staff are very friendly, meals are great and although its at the bottom of the town its very well located - good exercise!! Had a great time in Luxembourg!
