    Super kind staff! Very nice swimming pool. You can enter the room from the yard. Lockers work with a coin so don't need a padlock! It was nice to notice they don't put 2 people in the same bunk in order to maintain the social distance. Duvet was a bit narrow. No A/C nor fans in the room although a late night shower does its job. I had to unplug my bunk's 2 beds lamps plug in order to uncomfortably plug my phone which would become a big mess if the room is more than 50% full.

    I loved the visual of this hostel, the building is very pretty and well located (near the train station and about 1km from the city center and the lake). The rooms are clean and spacious, I felt very comfortable during my stay.

    I was pleasantly surprised at this hostel. It’s centrally located and right next to the train station. I booked the 16 bed mixed dorm but my dorm was all women (except one night). It was a decent sleep only disturbed by inconsiderate room mates being loud in the middle of the night or leaving the door open. I showered night and day and never had to wait for a shower or toilet. You just have to shower when is best for you and probably not during peak times. WiFi usually reached to the room.

    Overall a good stay and value for money in an expensive place like Lugano, nice location, easy to meet ppl and awesome public transport ticket upon arrival Just a few notes: - You need 2 francs to operate the lockers - Be prepared to get bitten - mosquitoes in the bathroom and I woke up with some itchy bites, not sure if from bed - common room closes very early at 10pm and they won’t let you stay up to do work quietly - only 2 showers + toilets to accommodate for 3 big rooms - small kitchen

    Solid place to stay. Location is super close to train station and the funicular if you want to go up or down to the city center. Beds were pretty comfortable too. There are lockers, but you have to pay every time you want to open them and you can’t use your own lock which was quite annoying. The pool is a nice touch. Only two bathrooms and showers, so that was difficult if many people were trying to use them at the same time.

    We just stayed of one night, one good thing is hostel is very close to Lugano train station, most people in dorms were families and childrens, not very chilled out atmosphere, very tiny kitchen no breakfast, ok to stay for a night and move on.
