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.

I was really disappointed with this hostel. I'd read reviews on this place but being the optimist that I am, I was let down. The staff weren't particularly helpful, and there was no social atmosphere there. I arrived at 10am to drop my bags off and it was deserted. This doesn't give the best first impression... For me the wifi... More

Pros: comfortable bed secure lockers in room good location easy to find, near bus station Cons: The wifi in lobby is limited to certain number for users. So in the peak hours at night, it is nearly impossible to use it. They close the kitchen and lobby at 11pm and you have to go back to your room. The checkout... More

Just up the road from the Dying Lion Monument it was handy as I could just walk into town. It maybe could do with a lick of paint but it was clean and it was fairly quiet when I was there. The toilets could do with a bit more privacy but all in all a nice place. A small kitchen... More

We've been to Lion Lodge for 1 night and it was good. The hostel is located 5 minutes away from lucerne center and a minute away from the famous sad lion statue. The hostel was clean and quite welcoming with a nice, yet a bit lacking receptionist. The hostel offers a small kitchen and a big lobby for chilling out.... More

Can't beat the location. Simply furnished clean rooms. Wifi in common areas. I ended up extending my stay here. The place is kept nice and clean. Check in was super easy. Great kitchen facilities equipped with everything you need to make a proper meal.
