Warm welcome, good room, nice amenities (kitchen, pool), wonderful surroundings and a nice location on the outskirts of Lugano. The Bus takes you to the city centre in about 10 minutes. Breakfast is good and nearby is a good pizzeria. We stayed as a small family with a baby and a baby-bed was provided in a studio bedroom with shower.... More

We stayed in the Youth Hostel lugano-Savosa during eastern 2012. The hostel is nicely located on the sunny side of a hill, with a large enclosed garden containing comfortable seats, a small swimming pool and lots of (small) attractions for children. It is a quiet place (at least when we visited) because it's not in the city centre and this... More

We checked-in into one of their comfort rooms (4 bunk beds with kitchenette facilities) for 5 nights and we were pleased with the stay there. Certainly, it exceeded our expectation of a youth hostel as it is nothing like any of the usual youth hostels that we've been to. The 3-storey modern building requires card access to their doors and... More

Very clean but there was no hot water for showers for a couple of days. All the sockets in the room were blocked up so we couldnt charge our phones, laptops etc. Very picturesque location but it is difficult enough to find and is up a hill (hard with a lot of luggage). Its a very nice place but I... More

This hostel is excellent for those wanting to watch their budget. Although they are not located directly in the city of Lugano they are just close enough to walk.(about 15minutes) There is also a bus stop not far from the hostel where you can catch the bus into the city. The hostel is located off the main road so it's... More

This is the best hostel I have ever been! The hostel is situated in the lovely place Lugano. The hostel offers nice and clean rooms. You can book a room for 2 persons, a family or you just sleep in a dormitory. The hostel has a great garden with a swimmingpool. You can relax while laying in the garden under... More
