Luxembourg doesn't look like a city for hostels and backpackers so expecting something super awesome would be wrong. Anyway, the place is quite easy to find (you would even see the street signs L'Auberge de Jeunesse).The location is great - the hostel is right next to an ancient bridge. Inside you would find quite helpful stuff, clean rooms and AWESOME breakfast) But don't expect any of cute atmospheric hostel features like board games, bar and movie night. Anyhow, we really enjoyed everything)

Could do more to increase integration within dorms (we were placed with people who didn't speak the same language)

Great base from which to explore Luxembourg City and surrounding areas. Has a great garden out back to relax in over dinner or to enjoy a beer (or your drink of choice) after a long day walking up and down all the steep laneways to and from the hostel.

The hostel is in a perfect location and on a beautiful setting. There's a car park which was great for our trip!

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the place was pretty clean. The lockers in the dorm rooms were WAY too tiny. We both had normal backpack-across-Europe-while-not-bringing-a-lot-of-stuff bags, and there was no way to fit them in. Also, WiFi only worked in the main room on the first floor, which was inconvenient. The main problem, however was the fact that you had to walk up a giant hill to get to the bus stop. It was pretty horrible, but that's kinda Luxembourg, I guess.

Excellent hostel overall. The price was right and the facilities were nice. They have a decent breakfast and a really nice and comfortable lounge area. The staff were not very friendly or helpful though. Epic fail on the customer service.

Great. Only minus is they were out of locks so I couldn't securely store anything.

It was very clean and nice to look at. The rooms were vrey secure with lockers, and 2 doors to get through to get into a room. The staff were helpful and the location was okay however it is a the bottom of a very steep hill and not close to the train station. It is walking distance but be aware its not very close. Shame there is no more competition to bring down the price.

an excellent and very clean hostel, with friendly staff and most of all in a beautiful location. it totally values the money. the only complains i could have is that although it is supposed to be a youth hostel, many older people were accomodated and the shower had some problems (the water poured from a hole in the wall and it was really uncomfortable, but very clean!)

Great place!! Stay here!! The building is big with large open common areas. The bar and restaurant are very warm and inviting. The room we stayed in had it's own shower and bathroom, which was very nice. The staff were very helpful. We loved our stay here and we will definitely return to the Luxembourg City Hostel!

Good hostel, lovely and clean, but lacked a bit of atmosphere. Felt like a hotel.

For the cost of the room it's fantastic. Obviously at this price everything is pretty basic but it's you can't ask for more at these prices. Would use again

this hostel would be 100% if it wasn't for two things: 1) it is such an absolute sweat box during a heatwave, there is only circulation of warm air around the building and the windows don't open for the safety of all the school and cub scout groups staying, so in the dorms you must sleep drenched in sweat during a heatwave. they need air-con! 2) There is no kitchen for the travellers/budget guests to cook or prepare their own food, you have to eat out, or subsist on sandwiches and cafe food

The 4-person rooms are big, cosy and clean.You can eat large and tasty breakfast . There are two bunk beds in the room. No towels. Beddings are distributed at the reception.

Walkable distance to most tourist spots. Good view and friendly staff. Very clean and well equipped!

One tip: You'd better save most of your luggage at the train station and only take the necessary ones for your stay to this hostel. You need to go a very steep way down there, what is worse, you need to drag your luggages back to the bus stop when you leave - that's like some ironman competition. If you don't like climbing mountain with huge suitcases, I suggest you pay extra money for luggage storage to save your energy. Otherwise perfect.

Lengthy dorm beds, which is nice for tall people. Male support desk staff does not have a good vibe, they look like they don't want to work there and made a slightly rude impression because of that. Showers are clean. The free breakfast is a nice extra, but the quality isn't that good. Me and my friend got stomach problems after drinking the orange juice that tasted a little funny, and saw an employee eat from the buffet with bare (unclean?!) hands. The surroundings of the hostel are quite nice!

Very nice location, down the valley but still very close to the city centre. The staff was really nice and helpful! And the rooms had good space for the guests. The shower facilities were not the best, but it didn't bother me much.

Everything great...

Everything fine; not exceptional. Wifi didn't work in the room and the door didn't lock unless you slammed it, which is a bit of an issue at night. On the other hand, staff were friendly and the free breakfast was a bonus. As a solo traveller, I appreciated being put with all women, even though I don't think there was the option to specify when booking. Not far to get into town, although a bit of a hike. A good option considering how expensive everything else is in Luxembourg.
