Property Description

Lugano is an incredibly versatile place. It's a city of finance and business that manages to maintain its likeable flair, attaches importance to culture and zest for life, and offers its inhabitants green oases with fragrant flowers. Various festivals bring streets and squares to life, and after a stroll through the car-free old town, you really want to just soak up the sun in one of the pleasant restaurants. A comfortable bed with a breakfast buffet in a newly renovated youth hostel is waiting for you just a few kilometres away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. So you can start the next day feeling reinvigorated, and explore the region around Lake Lugano on a hike, by bike or by boat. View House Rules

    Wonderful hostel! Lugano is beautiful and this hostel is too. The staff was nice, dorms were very clean, facilities were good from what I saw. Wish I would’ve stayed longer, as this was a great value hostel! Highly recommend, though location is the only non perfect thing. Other hostels are closer to the city center/train station, but a 15-20 min bus ride is not the worst. I would stay here again.

    Fantastic gardens and pool to spend an afternoon at the hostel itself. Be sure to use the bus system and accompanying passes from your reservation to get to and from Lake Lugano

    It was a very nice hostel. The staff were great, and the property had a lot to do on it. It was definitely a hostel for families. It was a bit far from the city center, but the Ticino Ticket made it easy to get there by bus. All-in-all I enjoyed my stay!

    Beautiful place, great location, fantastic staff (Eva was exceptional). More family/very young (school outings) oriented than an average traveller backpacker. At least at my time of stay. Would definitely recommend.

    This hostel had some of the most beautiful views and such amazing staff! My friends and I arrived late due to travel trouble and the hostel was more than understanding and was so helpful during after a stressful day of travel. The bus stop is so close to the hostel which made getting around super easy. Would definitely stay here again:)

    Amazingly friendly staff there, big thanks in particular to Mikhili(?). What a friendly lad working the night shift when I checked in. Rest of the staff were also really friendly and helpful. Location wise isn’t the best but still alright. Not really a place for solo backpackers I would say, lots of families and kids there. Lovely pool area with Table Tennis, etc but filled with kids running around so I felt a bit weird taking a swim by myself.

    Very Good

    Not for solo travelers. This is a place for families, and there’s quite a lot of noise from kids running around in the corridors. I had to pay 100/n for a private room, however this did not include a bathroom or even a towel. I would have felt better had the rate been 60-70. That said, the reception staff were extremely friendly and professional and the actual facility and grounds are very good. It’s steeply uphill from the train station. There are 2 supermarkets nearby.
