After reading some of the 'poor' reviews I'm a bit stunned that you would expect a hostel to provide toiletries, towels and not be noisy! This is our 1 St experience in a hostel and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience! The views are stunning, the hostel is clean, we had a private room for 3 with... More

Lake Lodge itself is relatively simple and what you would expect. The kitchen facilities can get a little hectic around meal time and measures could be taken to deal with the flies. Every room has a balcony with either a view of the mountain or a view of the lake. The lake itself is stunning and there are plenty of... More

We booked this place because we wanted to escape the city rush for a short time. The receptionist was nice and helpful with checking in and also with booking activities for us. The rooms are simple, but clean and practical. They have FREE KAYAKS if you stay there! Loved it! Great idea! Miss this peaceful place, mornings by the lake... More

Simple, clean and basic. Stunning location with breathtaking views. One of our highlights during our visit to Switzerland. A typical hostel setup so don't expect anything lavish! It helped that we had our own transport. They have parking space available. Would recommend this place for its view and simplicity. The owner too was nice!

Absolutely amazing. Lovely staff! Beautiful hostel on the lake. Bunk beds are a little close for comfort when you don't know the person. But definitely meet people quick! Very sociable hostel great common room and outdoor area! Great atmosphere!! Would stay again and again!

The picture on their website makes it look like they are right on the water but the truth is they are on a small street across the road from the water. Very misleading website. On our first night, there was human excrement on the balcony outside our room. The kitchen was filthy and smelled horrible.

At first I was a bit thrown off by the rooms. They are definitely small and ours had 10 mattresses aligned as bunk beds. Luckily, the 3 of us were the only ones who ended up staying in the room. The location is beautiful and it was easy to meet people in the lounge downstairs. The price was awesome and... More

I came here on my own hoping to experience the backpacker/traveller community experience while also getting to see beautiful scenery where I can adventure, go hiking, and do other sporty things. And this place was everything i was hoping for!!! The photos do not do justice for how beautiful the location is. The people in and around the hostel are... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in may 2015. I'm a solo traveller and generally look for the best deals or cheapest, I found this hostel the cheapest and in the best location for my liking, immediately I was greeted by friendly staff and friendly people, I met a few other solo travellers but found this hostel more...

The staff is very cultured and supportive. The location of the property is amazing, probably the best sceneries I have ever seen with mountain, greenery, flowers and beautiful lake. You can just sit there all day with cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the view. I loved the kayaking in the lake and enjoyed photography in the locality. The... More
