Great location, right next to the lake. Its quite a walk from the train station but you'll definitely enjoy it. Chillon castle is just 15mins away from the hostel. Territet bus stop and the train station is just 5mins from the hostel. Even the tram(funicular) which you can take to go up the hill to Glion is right behind the... More

We opted to stay here for the location. I was dreading a "youth" hostel, but found other adults staying there as well. It seems priced high for what it is, but then again, it's the location. It was clean, it was not very comfortable, but it was better than we expected. It was well run, the desk staff were very... More

It's located about 1.4kms away from the train station and information centre. Walk along the lake from information centre for about 20 odd minutes without any detour and you will find this located by the lake. The check-in is a bit late, starts at 5pm, i had reached there before 12 noon and found no one. They have lockers where... More

Brilliant location right by the lake. Beautiful walk along the lake from the train station (which is also minutes from the lake). Took me and my 7 year old daughter about 50 minutes to walk it as there was so much to look at! The staff are fantastic - so friendly and helpful both at reception and in the kitchen.... More

As many people have said it was a long walk along the lake to reach the hostel from the main train station. We arrived at 10am on a summer morning and took a slow stroll as we knew the check in is not open till 5pm. there is a big locker storage which you will need to pay 2 euros/franc... More

This seems to be one of the few budget options in Montreux but it's still got everything you need. Spacious rooms, quiet location, lots of toilets and showers. Only drawback is the 15-20 min walk to the centre of Montreux, we had bikes so it was OK.

Montreux is beautiful and shouldn't be missed. With that said, this hostel lacked in many categories. Service was bad, no kitchen to cook, no laundry, wifi was only available in a small and uncomfortable room. The positives being you get free public transport with a Riviera card and its very close to the Chateau de Chillon. (a must see)

We got a room here during the Montreux Jazz Festival, which seems ages ago now! Accommodation in the area is expensive, so the hostel was a more realistic option, plus being British we didn't want to pay any more than we needed to! It was just as I expected from a hostel, it was basic but clean & functional. The... More

Had one night here. Although near lake it's right on rail and a little far from city centre. Staff were ok if a little indiffernt. Maybe thats how one gets at a hostel. you have to stay in montreux on the cheap this is it. Personally I moved to the non-affiliated nearby Vevey hotel and guesthouse for a friendly welcoming...

I actually really enjoyed this hostel. The location is great (about halfway between the Chateau de Chillon and the city centre). Breakfast was good in the morning (cold cuts, cheese, cereal, yogurt, coffee, juice). The Hostel provides you with the Montreux Riviera Card which gets you free transit all over the place and discounted entry to the main attractions (awesome).... More
