Our family of two adults and two children chose to stay here based on the excellent reviews and it didn't disappoint. Of the 3 weeks we traveled Europe, this was our only hostel stay and it ended up better than expected. The hostel was an easy 15 minute walk with luggage and 10 without from the train station. Our room... More

Nothing more to say. One of the best hostels I know! Great staff, good and clean facilities. Location is right on the lake side in front of a beautiful park and only 15 min. walk from the train station. A five star hostel!!

A pleasant walk from the Luzern train station (go up a pedestrian bridge over piers/docks that may feel a bit removed from the city center), this hostel is super clean, plenty of kitchen space (they have two!), clean showers and bathrooms and to top it off a very nice welcoming staff that provide maps, brochures of the alps nearby (Mt....

This hostel was in an excellent location, right on lake Lucerne. While in the opposite location of the old town, it's only a 15 minute walk to the train station, and ideal if you want to do some hiking. The hostel itself was clean and the facilities were good. Wifi available throughout. Showers are shared but private. Would definitely recommend.

Yes, this hostel is a bit of a ways from the city center, but it's a very pretty and scenic walk, and not a big deal. With luggage? Eh, maybe a bit of a drag, but you can always hop on a bus. Showers and bathrooms are private, which is wonderful. Rooms have balconies with a great view, as well... More

We arrived after a 10minute walk, way before check in hours but were lucky enough to be greeted by a member of staff who helped us out. We were then extremely lucky enough (have read this on few reviews) to be upgraded to a double private room for the same price as a dorm (originally booked). We were then informed... More

The rooms were very clean, the staff was polite, wifi was strong and right by the lake . The place is a minimum 20 minute walk with luggage, but the walk is very pleasant by the lake. it has many restaurants in the vicinity.

Great conditions, secure and clean. The Wi-Fi is available in the rooms and the staff was always helpfull. Amazing view to the lake. Undoubtedly, this is the perfect place in Luzern for a budget accomodation.

It is a great place to stay. Accommodation is relatively cheap for Swiss standards. Rooms are spacious and clean. Hot water. Kind and helpful staff. Free parking and Wi-Fi. It was my second time there and not last for sure.
