Not much atmosphere in this hostel. 4pm check in was a bit of an inconvenience but at least you can store your luggage. The staff member that greeted us was a bit rude. The rooms and bathrooms were clean but the shower wasn't overly practical. There was only one powerpoint in our four bed dorm. The kitchen was always wet... More

I just stayed at the Lionlodge for 3 days as a solo female traveller and loved it. If you want modern, contemp don't bother but if you're happy with old charm, original and beautiful squeakie floors you'll be happy here. The whole place was cleaned every day, the dorm rooms were spacious and provided lockers and good beds. I don't... More

I went there with a friend to enjoy a weekend in Lucerne. The place is quite cheap and well located as we reached it in 10 minutes by walk from the train station. The reception oppening hours are quite fine, as you can check in until 10 PM and check out until 10 AM, which is enough if you really... More

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
