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

Just come back and enjoyed my stay here. It is tricky to locate the first time though. Leave the main station and cross the road, down some steps will take you to the lakeside. Turn left for about 30 minutes until you come to the railway archway and there it is. I was surprised at how warm it always was.... More

We chose this hostel for its location, and as time would be tight booked 'half board' for the convenience. The hostel was close to Territet station and plenty of buses – just don’t catch an express train from Montreaux as we did; thankfully it was only a couple of stations to backtrack. Finding the hostel was a minor challenge, as... More

Its sad, but true! We chose this hostel, cos it was the cheapest we could find near Montreux & the location looked decent. We knew chk in was only 2 hrs from 5--7pm, so we planned a longer stay at Zermatt in order to reach by 4.45pm. The owner arrived at 5pm & chk in was smooth. We paid a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Being up to date is (virtually) everything in Montreux, the most chic spot, full of tradition, on Lake Geneva. And the youth hostel is up to date. You just have to be here! The dining room jazzy, the seating corner classic, the foyer rustic, the day room busy. French esprit combined with sophisticated flair, makes many hearts beat faster in Montreux. Just like the leisure possibilities on the "Waadtländer Riviera" - oh-là-là! ... more   less
