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

    This is a great place to stay!! The room was so cozy and super clean. It is very small and more like a B&B which was very nice. It is a little outside of Lugano’s city center, but super easy to get to and accessible. They also provide details on how to get there.

    What a beautiful place! I wished I'd come earlier, in the summer. I'd have slidden down the slide into that lovely swimming pool, and then relaxed on a chaise longue in that amazingly laid-out garden, among the flower beds. Oh, and I would have tried to persuade my children to come with the grand-children. They would have enjoyed the football machine, and playing with all the other children in the swimming pool. Oh, and the grown-ups enjoying the free coffee whenever we liked.

    Amazingly staff, grounds, breakfast, value. The only no-go: Perfumed corridors and (bath)rooms. They kindly offered to change our room (hostel was full) or give us a refund (not an option/late evening). Asthma/allergy suffers should be aware that spraying perfume is an 'obligatory' part of their cleaning routine! Windows left wide-open all night did not banish it. With advance warning, they would be willing to ensure a well-aired room, but sadly, that doesn't solve the issue for asthmatics.

    Beautiful site, v clean pool, lots of activities - beach volleyball, table tennis, boules etc. Excellent for kids. Staff v helpful. Only problem was no air conditioning in the rooms when it was v hot weather which made sleeping difficult, and no nets on the windows to keep mosquitos out.

    I had an amazing stay at this hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful and there is a pool and volleyball pitch for meeting people/ having fun. It’s a bit of a walk to the city center, but there are buses that run regularly and the city is great for walking. I would definitely come again!

    More of a family retreat than hostel. Helpful staff though you had to use their kitchen in order to cook and they seemed to look act as if it was an inconvenience that you were using it. Nice rooms though there was no lock on the lockers
