When I read "hotel and hostel" I thought "this is going to be a great place". Just minutes away from the station you see it in a hill. "Great" you start thinking. Receptionist is really friendly and helpful. I started to feel uncomfortable when she asked three times is I was going to stay a night longer. "Why?" I asked. "It´s really low season right now" I added. I am glad that my gut feelings told me not to pay for the second night. I was located in a room with five mattresses literally together. Guys were friendly and joked about all sleeping together. None could really sleep well. The following day I was so tired that really downgraded my Lugano experience and decided to leave town earlier than expected. That kind of dorm setting might work when you are climbing Fujisama during the night, everyone is in the same page and super tired, but not in a city. Lockers were not working. Only two electric plugs for five people. Poor lights in the corridors, you may hit a step while trying to get to the restroom. Showers were very small and poorly designed. You have to pay extra for bed sheets and they look at least ten years old. Breakfast is promoted at CHF10 and then it is CHF15 in the neighboring hotel.
