    The staff were all so friendly! I even got upgraded to a bigger room when I arrived because they had openings. The stay is right in front of the lake and about a 20 minute walk to the more popular tourist attractions. The location is very safe and beautiful. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean, probably the cleanest I’ve ever experienced at a hostel! I would definitely stay here again

    A really nice place to stay! Right on the edge of Lake Lucerne and takes only 15 minutes to get to the city center.

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The staff was super nice, always. When we arrived they let us make an early booking without any extra charges, the big man at the reception is super nice! the day we arrived they had a low demand for rooms that day so even without saying anything to us he upgraded the room without any additional cost. He upgraded from a shared dorm to a private room which was awesome. The best of the best!

    A quick bus trip and a short walk to get to this hostel. It has a summer school dorm feel. Awesome staff and nice beds. Bathrooms are clean. They even give you a bus pass for a day. I had the Swiss travel pass didn’t need it but a good thing to have. The room had euro outlet which was helpful. They also sell swiss pocket knives at a discount. Great stay!!

    I love this hostel! I only ended up staying here one night, but it was awesome. It was the cleanest hostel I have been to. It is a bit of a walk from the train station, but still reasonable, and you get to walk along the water. They have a great kitchen area and super cute hang out spaces. I hope to come back one day.

    The hostel was clean and nice! It was a bit of a quiet walk from the town to the hostel at night but it was ok. There weren’t many people in the hostel so there was no real atmosphere but perfect place to stay if you’re happy to do your own thing!
