    This is the best location that you can choose in Luzern. The location is amazing, the hostel is clean and modern, the host is super friendly and outgoing, the facilities are awesome and the panorama view from the balcony is just worth every penny. You will not regret staying here. I will come back.

    I'll give it a max rating even though I had to cancel at the last minute and couldn't show up, but the guy was full of understanding and said it was ok. Even before my cancelation, he invited me to a party with him and the rest of the guests, so, you don't get it more chill and easy-going than that. And the hostel itself looks really nice with a beautiful view and I'm really sorry that I couldn't stay. Hopefully some other time.
