Property Description

Welcome to Barabas Luzern, Switzerland’s first jailhouse hostel. You don’t have to book an expensive flight to San Francisco to take a look at an ancient prison. Just come to Lucerne! To begin with it’s much cheaper and second you’ll have the unique opportunity of staying overnight, plunging into the ancient times of bad boys. But with a restful sleep.
Unlike earlier, our guests will find a completely renovated building with a lot of conveniences and most importantly: comfortable beds. We take care of your physical well-being, put away bread and water and replaced them with various delicacies. Well, that’s self-evident, isn’t it? Get locked up right now!

The Barabas Luzern hostel is located in the old town of Lucerne, not even 10 minutes walking distance from Lucerne main station. You can reach all important sightseeing spots within a few steps: Chapel bridge, old town, city centre, lion monument, city wall, the Reuss river and the bay of lake Lucerne. Shops as well as bars and restaurants are located nearby.

The Barabas provides 60 different prison cells. We have multibed rooms with a shared bathroom; but also single, double and family rooms with a private bathroom. The library, offering a large amount of crime novels, is also bookable as a bedroom.

pleased with my stay. the little kitchen was clean and mostly deserted. my bed was a real bed with adequate power sockets. the towels were changed daily. plenty of hot water and i never waited for a shower or toilet. friendly staff. windows opened so we could get fresh air. yes it was warm but i knew that air conditioning wasnt a thing so no complaints. can highly recommend.

Great spot. Extremely clean. Doesn’t really have the vibe of a hostel. More like a hotel with bunk beds. But extremely clean and well maintained. Fantastic spot in old town we well.
