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

    LOVED staying here. This hostel has a really cozy, familial vibes and the rooms were so clean and spirited for a place that’s priced so affordably. Ava the lady who ran the reception was so kind and lovely - made sure I knew how to use the kitchen when it was open (in the evenings, otherwise it’s a charge of 10 francs). Would definitely want to stay here again if I’m ever back in Ticino.

    Th youth hostel in Lugano was a nice experience! We only stayed one night but everything was great. They recommended us a nice place to have dinner nearby where the pizza was delicious and cheap. The evening swim in the pool after a hot day was perfect too! The 8 bed dorm was comfortable and the showers and toilets were clean. Everyone was friendly. Just so you know: many families and kids are around too and the kitchen unfortunately cost money to use it

    The room and the overall environment (view from window, garden, etc) were wonderful. Very clean, comfortable, and functional bathroom. Not in the center but very easy to get to by bus - overall a 10-15 min journey

    Great hostel. It has a family owned cozy B&B vibe. The hostel is actually spread out in multiple buildings, so it was much larger than I thought. There is a really nice outdoor garden and patio area. The staff was very kind and helpful. I felt safe as a solo female traveler. The hostel certainly needs redecorating- it's all a little dated, but everything was clean and comfortable. It's about a 5 minute walk uphill from the nearest bus stop, and 10-15 min bus ride to the city center.

    Great hostel to stay at for the weekend! I was a solo, female traveller and felt completely safe at all times. When I went, I ended up to a whole dorm to myself because there were lots of families travelling together in the other dorms, so no complaints there. The place was very clean. Definitely not a party hostel, it was nice and quiet all weekend. Breakfast selection was good, it is a bit expensive (10CHF) but that's normal in Switzerland! Would definitely stay here again!

    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.

    Cool hostel, first one i have seen with a big garden and a pool! Nice place, nice rooms and all, but not really a youth hostel maybe, many people 50+ stayed there. Pleasant and nice staff, they were great, so was the breakfast.
