Horribly uncomfortable beds. Absolutely disgusting shower/toilet facilities that are not fit for purpose. The kitchen is tiny, smelly and filthy. One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed at. One positive - the hostel is close to the Lion Monument, which was a good way to kill time in the morning while waiting for the front desk to open in... More

I found the staff very easy going, the accommodations where good for the price payed, the bathroom was always clean. I always had breakfast on the balcony. The kitchen was ok, however it was a bit crowded sometimes. The only problem I had was with sleeping because I have a light sleep and my window was right next to the... More

I don't understand all the negative comments because this was a good hostel. I've definitely stayed in worse. The bed, mattress, sheets, and pillows were unbelievably comfortable. I had the most amazing sleep. The sheets they give you are also incredibly clean. They give you a sheet to put between yourself and the duvet but I found that I didn't... More

I stayed with me friend here for two nights. The hostel was in a really good location, just a ten minute walk from the trainstation. Our room (4 mixed dorm) was really clean and modern and it had a small balcony. Only con was that the wifi only worked in the lobby area, but there was couches so it was... More

If you want a welcoming, clean hostel with a good atmosphere, choose somewhere else. This place is damp, dark and musty. 1 toilet and shower per floor is insufficient. Staff are less than welcoming. Location ok. Ok for a night or two if you must. Expect lots of traffic noise.

Pros: close to the Lion Monument Direct bus to/from main station. Kitchen in the hostel. Indian restaurant right next to the hostel. Cons: no WiFi in the rooms. No elevator. Only one toilet and bathroom per floor. Shower doesn't have a door, just a curtain. Deposit for room key is too much (20€/20f or passport) Too expensive.

The least pleasant experience among dozens of hostels in my trip. The location was easy to find, it took us about 25 minutes(with luggages) to get there from the main train station. The young girl who helped us check-in was cheerful and friendly. There was no elevator, the stairs were creeking and uneven. Our room is a four-person dorm, it... More

Lion Lodge was nothing to write home about. It smelled slightly of curry due to the indian restaurant next door and when we were there it wasn't very social or exciting. Was in a good location in lucerne, and handy for a backpacker on a budget. Nothing special.

its in the central area and in the main street. The room was clean, so is the toilet. The staff were nice and helpful. You have to rent towels if you didnt bring any. it would be great if the wifi was on all floors. because the common room was closed at 10 pm.
