This hostel is great! We enjoyed it immensely. The staff are so friendly and went out of their way to help us however they could. It was very busy but super fun and breakfast was good!


Though the location for the hostel was out of the way, this ended up not being a problem. t's a simple bus ride to get there, and the way to the hostel is signposted on all of the roads. The staff were friendly and my room was very clean. I definitely recommend this hostel if you are staying in Lucerne.


Very clean, quiet and secure.


Nice hotel, excellent staff. But public space should be reorganized.


Not the best hostel I've stayed in. Staff weren't all that nice and there was no atmosphere at all. A lot of families stay here and not many English speaking people.


very clean!


it's not possible to cook at kitchen. a little bit inconvenience. The hostel location is a little far from train station. But it doesn't matter if you guys know bus station and bus timetable. It's clean inside of hostel.

Great place!!! ive enjoy my stay there


Be warned: I didn't read the fine print and if you aren't a member of the youth hostel association then it costs 6 extra euro a night PER PERSON to stay there.... I was very unhappy to find this out.


Horrible location but staff was nice and helpful. Atmosphere was pretty dull too.


This was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. I was sleeping in an all female dorm and in the middle of the night we had a man break in, in his underwear, and stay the night in our dorm. Apparently the door locks were broken. It was pretty scary! In the morning the staff weren't very apologetic and did little to make up for the massive security glitch. The hostel is 30 mins at least out of town. Pay the extra and stay somewhere secure.
