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.

Clean rooms, nice atmosphere and location (near the lake and university). The bathrooms are shared, but it's not a problem since they're numerous enough and there are plenty of sinks outside. One have to do it's own bed (u get the sheets by checking in) ....there is no breakfast included

Probably one of the best hostels I have stayed in. The reception closed by the time we reached but they were helpful in arranging to get the keys to enter and stay. Stayed there with my parents who were on a short visit to Europe. The place surprised us all with it's roomy space and well maintained premises. Breakfast was... More

But after that we started loving walk between Lucerne station and hostel as one has to pass through the charming road with colourful trees and lake Lucerne. Stay was enjoyable, lot help from reception, night cooking at kitchen with other members,... More
