Property Description

The unique interplay between glinting waves, impressive massifs and architectural gems makes Lucerne an extremely popular tourist destination. At the point where the River Reuss flows out of Lake Lucerne and past the world-famous Chapel Bridge, you can make yourself comfortable on the shore or feel a sense of history in front of frescoed houses. Highlights include the Musegg Wall, the Lion Monument, the Swiss Museum of Transport and a visit to the KKL Culture and Convention Centre. Or why not take a Pilatus round trip? Our youth hostel has an international atmosphere and is open all year round so you can sample all of the aspects of this festival and carnival city. View House Rules

    The hostel was well run and clean. Breakfast was included in the stay and was the perfect start to a day of exploration around Lucerne. The hostel also provided a local bus ticket to cover all four of us as part of our reservation, but the hostel is less than a half mile walk to the city center and lake and we only needed to use the bus once to get back from Mount Pilatus. Highly recommend.

    It was such an amazing place to stay! I wasn’t pleasantly surprised and they had great accommodations. For the price and the service it was quite a treat. The only thing I’d wish was some more light from the bus stop to the Hostel, but that is not the hostels job! Otherwise it was a great stay and I highly recommend to someone trying out Switzerland and finding a decent place to stay

    The hostel was fine for my two night stay, but was a little far away from everything and the facilities were average - the lack of kitchen is annoying and the dining hall was only open during the breakfast/dinner they provided. The free breakfast was a great selection, way more interesting than most hostel breakfasts which is a bonus. Bedrooms were fine, but you had to have a 2 franc deposit for the lockers - would prefer they let you use your own key. I

    There is a single mini-fridge for the entire hostel!!! It's like they never heard of hostels! WTF. You know...and it's not like the city is has tons of cheap eating options. Easily the most confused I've been at a hostel ever. I mean, in their defense, if they had a bigger fridge, you couldn't cook anyway, so you're limited to things you can microwave and salads.

    This hostel was fine. Had all the basics you need. Hard to meet other people, cold atmosphere. But clean and relatively quiet.

    While this hostel is named Youthhostel, it is definitely not- there were loud kids running throughout the hallways/stairwells. Not what I expected in that regard. Breakfast was good. Staff was always helpful. Location wasn't superb but the free bus card remedies that. Building and room were very hot and had a subtle bad smell. Wifi only works in kitchen and common area. Beds had a personal light and power outlet.

    No Kitchen, power outlets poorly designed. Close to main road so lot of noise in night. Costly beverages in vending machine. NO INTERNET IN THE ROOM (WTF)

    Security: Reception not beside entrance Location: Too far from town Staff: Lady argued with my friend & another guest that they had English Breakfast Tea, but didn't Atmosphere: None Cleanliness: Rubbish under mattress and on top of lockers Value for money: Only breakfast good Facilities: No kitchen to self-cater, one microwave, kettle & small fridge, so queues to use them. Told to get water from sink in toilet/locker room! Lounge small & boring. To improve: Visit Backpackers Bern & Interlaken
