Typical Hostel International hostel. Clean, but very boring and located far from the center. I had no problems with the staff, they were all very helpful. Wifi is really terrible and it does not work at all if there are more than ten people in the hotspot. There are pay terminals for internet there, coincidentally.


They are so nice! I lost my coat there, they picked it up and we're willing to mail it to me. I really appreciate their help!

I only stayed one night but would stay here again , well organised staff at reception where check in was prompt staff also had good knowledge of the area, and transport, for which there were also timetables posted for all to see, beds were comfy , shared showers/ toilets were ok, breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice ranging from cheeses and cold meat cuts , cereals yoghurts fruit breads incl' toast jams etc and very good coffee. with everything replenished when needed by the polite staf


Very far form train station and need to walk up and down the slope. Many student trip here and it is quite noisy at night time. Good breakfast and the staff is good. No washing machine. The room is good.


I didn't really like the hostel. There is zero atmosphere and the location is far away from the city center. The price is quite expensive. The breakfast was a plus as it was pretty darn good.


Geart place will recommend it to people. Good breakfast.


Too expensive for what you get honestly and 0 atmosphere. Lots of families and children.


No cooking facilities at all available

There are very few hostels to choose from in Luzern and this one is really expensive for what you get, even if it is Switzerland. If you are not a member of their hostel association you pay extra per night so be aware of this. There was a microwave and kettle which was good and breakfast is included (really good breakfast). You can walk to town from the hostel and there is also a bus nearby but be aware that this hostel is outside of the city centre so walking from the station would be too far.
