    Very great place to stay! Spacious rooms with a locker for your luggage. Great common areas to hang out and meet people. Very friendly staff!! Only note to mention is that it's about a 15 min walk from the train station and with luggage it's a little tiring. Would stay again!!

    The counter staff was extremely friendly and approachable. They have unique bedsheets/blanket cover, but the counter staff did a good job explaining how to use it. The counter staff was also extremely helpful: he taught us how to use the oven and helped us with purchasing tickets for Mt. Pilatus. Overall, the stay was good.

    A hostel with all your basic needs. Not the most social hostel but that’s okay if you’re only planning to spend a few nights in Lucerne. Staff are awesome and are willing to help with any requests. They have a laundry service and two kitchens. A quick walk to the centre and a beautiful view of the lake!

    As a solid female traveler. I felt safe but the atmosphere wasn't the best. But the staff was friendly and helpful. Not super close to old Town, but not to terrible. Had to pay $1 for a towel.
