A brilliant hostel! The location (a stone's throw away from the Blue Mosque and the tram line) is perfect for sight-seeing; the staff members are all wonderful; the organised events (such as the walking tour off the beaten track and the pub crawl) are great; and the general atmosphere is just excellent. My favourite aspect of this hostel is the amazing rooftop bar and terrace where you have free breakfast each morning, and socialise over drinks (or a meal made by the lovely Stef) in the evening

Brilliant location - close to the central station, and easy to catch public transport anywhere for free (with the Lausanne Transport Card the hostel provides). Good kitchen facilities, but horrid bathroom set-up (with no privacy for showering). In all, a good stay.
Amazing location, brilliant wifi in the rooms and comfortable beds. The major shortfall is the check-in procedure, where you have to go to another hostel to check in, which is a good 15 - 20 minute walk away (depending on how lost you get) and the fact that there is no common room or a social area.
A brilliant location - everything is walking distance. Facilities are all rather basic and the breakfast is quite meagre, but the pub crawl and arranged events are great. All in all, a good stay.
A very comfortable stay and a good night's rest. The atmosphere was a little sterile, but this is a very clean and safe hostel, where breakfast is included.
This is an extremely basic hostel, that leans more towards being dirty and somewhat dingy. Great location though (close to the Museumplein and the Leidseplein) and good Wifi that works in the rooms. My opinion is that if you're only looking for a cheap bed (in a good location), this is the place for you; but if you're looking for a place with great character and atmosphere this is not the place.
