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

We stayed here for two nights on either end of hiking the Swiss Path. It was a good place to stay for quick stop ins, and it was nice to have a place to cook. They have lockers where we kept our stuff while we were out hiking overnight, and the room, kitchen, and living room were all clean and... 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.

If you're fan of the smell of raw potatoes then I highly commend this place. It's really not as bad as people make out in the reviews here, so what the wifi doesn't work, you're In luzern, one of the worlds most beautiful places, go and explore it and get off the internet.

We stayed here only for one night.. the position of the hostel is very good..We had a Double room with private bathroom, the room was very small but for one night was ok.. the bathroom was not cleaned very well... What I didn't like was the odour that comes from the kitchen of spicy food..

Our family did not enjoy our stay here at all! The wifi did not work, each time we mentioned this there was a different excuse made, mainly that it must have been our phones/iPad not the hostel's problem. The kitchen is not regularly checked for cleanliness. I had to ask for dish washing liquid then fresh tea towels (twice) while... More
