    Andrea!!!! What an amazing employee. She was so kind, helpful and hilarious. Thanks! This hostel is a great place to stay, it has everything. Great location, you can have whatever type of trip you’d like whether it’s relaxing or a party. The rooms/ lockers are secure, plenty of space to safely store your belongings. Two big kitchens that will help you to save money by not eating out. Right by the waterfront/ beach. They also email you your transit pass before you arrive. Highly recommend!

    Really nice hostel, right across the road from the lake. Great spot to pop down to the water to watch gorgeous sunrises, which I could glimpse (through the trees) from my room. Staff deserve a special mention, in particular Andrea, who guided and advised on a supermarket fondue kit, and found the hostel's fondue pot set and set it up for us. Eating out is very expensive in Switzerland, but the hostel has two kitchens & both indoor and outdoor places to sit and eat.

    This hostel was amazing! It is perfectly located on the lake and it’s a short walk into the city center. The staff was very friendly and it had an inviting social atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.

    I really liked how spacious the rooms were and how clean the bathrooms and showers were. The location is also awesome. However, I had a terrible time sleeping because there is a nightclub nearby that was blasting techno music all night. Not the hostels fault, but just something to think about if you want to stay there from Thursday to Saturday night.

    I had a fantastic stay at Backpackers Lucerne. The hostel has fantastic facilities including two kitchens and a common room. Rooms are big and clean. The thing that really made my stay memorable was the staff. So kind and helpful, they even lent us their fondue kit so we could experience cheese fondue on a budget. Overall couldn’t recommend them enough.

    The hostel was really good but a little bit far of a walk to get to town. The walk though was lovely and the hostel clean and recommend if you want to be away from the town but why would you? Lucerne was beautiful.

    Everything was very good about this hostel except the atmosphere. The staff were so lovely, there were enough showers and toilets and they were clean, the bedrooms were spacious and each person has a reading light and a locker with a key (with an extra charging point inside genius). There were 2 kitchens that were clean and stocked, and there was plenty of space to talk to people but mostly people did their own thing. Quite a few older people too, and it's kid friendly. 15 mins walk from train

    Location was a bit of a walk from the train station (15-20 min) but there were some cool sites and an awesome frequented park near the hostel. Staff was kind and there weren’t a ton of bathrooms but I never seemed to wait. Not a great place for solo travelers as the vibe is very keep to your self and quiet. But clean and friendly and served its purpose. Room could get quite warm. Would be better if you travel with others!
