    Best hostel I've been in yet! Great staff, everything was perfect, outlets everywhere, great location by the water, nice bathrooms and showers, its the little things that make a nicer hostel and everything was perfect! For $9 the staff wash, dry, and fold your laundry!! I loved it here and hope to be back soon.

    Everyone was really nice. Gave plenty of suggestions on what to do and even gave a discount on the mount Pilatus trip. They take euros, but 1 to 1 on the Swiss franc. Bathrooms are clean and the rooms are sufficient! Common area is cozy. Would stay here again for sure.

    The 1st and 2nd floor is used for the hostel and the rest of the floors are used for student housing. Towels are not included with the stay and they cost 1 franc each. The room was very clean and there was enough room for the two of us to lay out our luggage which was nice. At check in they give you clean sheets to sleep on as well as use on top with pillow covers. The showers were roomy with enough room to change. The water however did not drain well.

    15 mins by bus which is ok but it’s a very quiet almost industrial part of town??? Although it is by the lake & you can walk around the lake to the city.

    Very comfortable hostel. Location is good - a short walk from Lucerne old town and also the train station. The hostel was very clean and tidy. Staff were helpful. The hostel itself didn't have a great atmosphere, but it was fine for a night! Would stay again for short stays in Lucerne :)

    The kitchen had fixed hours. I wanted to cook my breakfast early the next day as i wanted to carry it along. But the kitchen was closed till 7.30am. Someone needs to be at the reception, we couldn't check out early because the reception opens at 7.30am. luckily we did not miss our train back.
