We stayed in Lausanne for 3 nights in a 4 person dorm. It is located very close to the train station and there are signs directing you to the hostel so it is very easy to find. Check in is from 2pm however there is a luggage room (not secure) and free wifi in the lobby sitting area/kitchen if you... More

This hostel is very close to the train station, but it has many other qualities. It has good common areas, including a large, well equiped and CLEAN kitchen. The bathrooms are also very very clean. Also, when you check in you are given a public transport ticket for you to use during your stay.This hostel was definately worth it's price.

I stayed at the Guesthouse from 9 to 22 Feb and I highly-recommend it. It beats the Novotels and the Ibises hands-down. The standards were very high. I had a variety of rooms - from a dorm that was converted for one person, to a twin-bed room. They were all very clean, including the bathrooms (which were spacious, looked as... More

Very nice and helpful staff! Room, bathroom and kitchen were all very clean. Nice atmosphere at the common room. good wifi. good location, just about 10 minutes walking distance from the train station. Most sockets in the dorm room are beside the door, not very convenient for charging. Other than that everything was great! Highly recommended!

We stayed at this hotel, and chose it for its location as it is very conveniently located. It is near the train station so the commuting is easy. It is also very budget friendly in an otherwise expensive city.This was the perfect accommodation option. The guesthouse is very well maintained and the rooms are very clean. Ours was a nice... More

Very close to the train station, only a short walk away and easy to find. Friendly staff and large rooms. The washrooms were large and very clean. The view from the room was lovely. A 5 minute walk to a COOP if you need a bite to eat, and maybe 15-20 walk to the lake and waterfront. I spent 2... More

It's located near the trainstation of Lausanne with a nice view of the lake - at least if you are booked in floor 4&5. We stayed on the 5th and had our own bathroom across the hallway. The house is very clean, our room was quite big, the staff is friendly and speaks many languages. Wifi is accessable throughout the... More

I stayed just one night in a 4-bed room. The guesthouse was very close to the main train station (although I couldn't hear any trains from my room) and easy to find - there are sign posts when you come out on the Lac side of the station. The rooms and communal areas are clean and the staff were friendly.... More

Hello, Thanks for your comment ! Regarding your remarks, we have just bought (1 week ago!) individual lights and this should be installed within 1 month... Regarding the hooks: we take note that we should put some more directly outside the showers... Kind regards! More

Family trip with Dad, 18y/o daughter and 16y/o son. The Lausanne Guesthouse provided a comfortable, clean, and friendly place to stay at a good price. The folks at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are "average" overall, but for a youth hostel, they were actually above average. I was concerned about train noise being right there... More
