    This was an amazing hostel stay. I’d go back immediately. The staff helped me pick out and purchase a ticket to visit the nearby mountain. The bathroom and showers were clean and convenient.

    This hostel was great. The staff were so friendly and helpful and very accommodating with luggage storage. Bathrooms, showers, rooms were spotless, the kitchen was very well equipped. We didn’t have time to enjoy the lake as went to Mount Rigi so we were sad we couldn’t stay another day and swim in the lake and paddle board. The beach lis right tactos from the hostel. The hostel is also only a 10/15 min walk from the main train station/ferry.

    Really nice hostel. 20 min walk from the city center and 2 minutes from a nice park and beach on Lake Lucerne. Nice kitchen area and the bath rooms were clean. Only complaint is that the pillows were stiff and flat which was super uncomfortable. Other than that really great place, friendly staff.

    This was a great stay! The rooms were comfortable and a great location right by the lake. The staff were friendly too, and the bus passes were a nice plus. I would definitely stay again.

    Probably one of the cutest hostels I’ve ever stayed in! Each room has a balcony (mine had a mountain view!) and there were so many cute/stylish touches. Felt like a college dorm in a good way (like I could live there easily) if it was cute and clean. My only complaints were that the bedding situation was quite confusing, the curtains don’t block out any sunlight in the mornings, and there isn’t much atmosphere. Other than that — perfect! It is about a 15-20 minute walk from the center but they also provide

    Very solid hostel in a pretty good location. For some reason, however, the hostel environment was very bizarre. Huge place but often dead. My roommates were all older (like 40+ years on average, I'm 23). Good bathrooms and shower. Good hostel but I wish the vibe was younger.

    A value-for-money place to stay in otherwise pricey Switzerland! The staff were friendly, the property is nicely decorated, and there was an extensive and well-equipped common area. The only thing is that it’s located slightly further away from the town centre, and they don’t give you a blanket cover which felt a bit strange to me.

    Stayed here as a solo traveller in a private single room for three nights June 2022. Staff were friendly and stored my luggage until check in (which was quite late at 5pm). The room was clean with a balcony and the bathrooms/showers were all in separate cubicles, so it never felt like you were sharing at all. The location was good, about a 15 minute walk from the centre of town and with the room came access to free public transport and discount on local attrations!
