Very nice place, It would be perfect with a more decorated/confortable/warm common room.


Good location (on the lake) but be sure to go to Montreux Territet train station or you face a 40 minute walk. That same walk is awesome without luggage though. The doors to the exterior didn't always seem to lock on time, but the rooms themselves were secure. Lockers are available. Bathrooms & showers have a door that can be completely closed & locked which is awesome-not a row of shower stalls! Towel provided as well.


Nice place to stay close to the Lac Leman. The only thing to take into account is that it is far away from the city centre. Nevertheless you get a transport ticket to use the bus once you are there.


Clean and functional. Biggest complaint is that you had to continuously hold the button for water to come out of the shower. Second biggest complaint is that there are nowhere near enough outlets in the hostel, including outside of the bedrooms. Relatively cheap and a lovely view of the sunset though. Note: Lockers are outside the rooms - I just chained my bag to my bed.


The staff is a bit impatient when I tell him there is only one socket in the room. I think they can add a multiple socket to provide more socket to the customer.


Location is a 20 minute walk from Montreux but the lakeside spot makes up for it - stunning! For anyone trying to get to this hostel from Territet it's two minutes from the station but the information doesn't say in what direction - you have to go through the underpass to the lake side, then it's two minutes away from Montreux, passed the tennis club.


Excellent service from the lady at the front desk - THANK YOU! Things for travellers to know about the hostel - it is right next to the train tracks BUT the trains aren't too noisy. We were in a room in the middle of the hostel and couldn't really hear them. It is a good 30min walk from train station BUT it is a lovely walk along the waterfront. The hostel itself is very clean and tidy - we had a bathroom in our room of four bunks which was great. And the bunks were wood - so not squeaky - yay!

Good youthhostel, just near the lake and the Territet train station possibility to park your car just next to the hostel, for free (max 5 hours) only drawbacks I would mention is that there is no kitchen; indeed, they have there own restaurant where you can eat for ~15-20 Chf, but you can't cook by yourself as in other youthhostels. internet doesn't work in the rooms
