    great location, next to the train station. Fantastic swimming pool. Unfortunately, I felt there were extremely insufficient toilets and showers (2 toilets and 2 showers to cover 3 dorms, being mine alone for 16 guests, so you can guess). The building looks brilliant, and the external gardens are wonderful

    This place was great, great location right by the train station simultaneously with a great view. We were even given free transportation upon arrival. Great value for your money as the pool is unreal with the backdrop of the mountains. Would stay here again!

    It's hard to find anything bad to say about this place. It's clean, comfy beds, really close to the station and funicular. The best feature is use of the pool at the nextdoor hotel which is amazing, and there are lots of nice spots to sit overlooking the lovely gardens.

    Very nice hostel with friendly staff in a great location. Nice kitchen area/common room and a lovely pool. Staff had recommendations and there were a lot of brochures to look through to find things to do (I recommend Monte Bré and Monte Generoso). Common area shared with hotel guests and so the atmosphere is not very social. Only 2 bathroom stalls and 2 showers. Also ended up with bedbug bites from my last night there but that can happen anywhere so be careful!

    It was clean and the facilities were good and priced very fairly. On the other hand, the beds are pretty tough to sleep on especially with no air conditioning. Since there’s up to 16 people in there it can get unbearably hot! and (and I’m not really blaming the hostel for this) my necklaces went missing while I was showering, so did our new bottle of detergent. I’d say just be prepared for rough nights of sleep and be more careful with any possessions than I was.

    Generally ok hostel. Main complaint is that the facilities are entirely too small for the size of the dorms. Two showers and two toilets for all dorm beds and the kitchen can only fit two people at a time. Location is good, right by the train station.
