Lady working reception was very friendlfriendly and helpful; the man was less helpful and somewat short. Locaton aout of ththe at from Montreux but only 25 min wak; close to a train station however (both old and bad). Would be nice to expand WiFi capa ilities to the rooms


The only major complaint I have is that it is not closer to the city center, however the walk there was very pretty along Lake Geneva. It was also very close to a train line and it was very loud when a train came past.


Doesn't really have much of an atmosphere. I didn't see any awesome hang out areas. Everything else was fine. Breakfast was good.


Location is good. The room is small, stuffed and very noisy. Cleanness is ok. The sound proof of terrible, feels like sleeping in a train station, while other people work outside.

Stunning location. If you can't catch a train that stops at Territet, take bus 102. Don't know why they don't mention that. No transport card provided like some hostels in Switzerland, but you will always want to walk. Be prepared for noisy school groups, noise carries dreadfully in the halls. Good at conserving energy but lights are on sensor and some are broken / not sensored at all. Constantly looking for a switch in dark, dangerous on stairs. Wifi only in lobby. Reception hrs horrible.


very good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The staff was helpful, funny and friendly. This was only mine and my travel mate's second time at a Swiss hostel so we are still getting used to the apparent differences. Not having 24 hour reception was a bother as we got there 1.5 hours early. There was only wifi in the lobby which was fine except the lobby was rather uncomfortable (no comfy seats). I thought the location was supreme as it was only a small walk to town and to the castle. The breakfast was AMAZING. Overall, great stay. :)


Was only 4 other travellers that i saw of during my stay here so atmosphere wasnt quite as social as I would have liked. what few staff I saw during my stay seemed like they were having a bad day and wifi only worked on ground floor which was very inconvenient. Free breakfast was good and showers were clean which is all you can ask for i suppose. about 25 mins walk from freddie mercury statue, which is the only reason I came to montreux. it was a very beautiful city, highly reccomend
