Only three parking spaces for the whole hostel - which of course all were taken. This caused us quite some problems, as parking in Switzerland is very costly and we had planned with these parking spaces. Rooms/Bath rooms were ok for the price.

Expected it to be cleaner. Our room was okay. But it was not well-maintained, the walls are dirty and there's dust underneath the bunk beds. I stayed with my mom and sister and they were not so happy as well. Wifi is only available in the common area as well which is very inconvenient. Communal shower and toilet with very... More

I am very impressed with this hostel. They staff were very friendly. Kitchen were stocked with a lot of food. We also can make drinks and do simple cooking without any charges. The toilet and bathroom were very clean. I would recommend this place for other travellers too.

Stayed for one night. I was expecting the reviews to be wrong because we only need to find a place to stay for the night, check out before 6 am. Negatives: Old building, old and very small room, hard mattress, unclean pillow, poor bathroom (I know Switzerland was expensive, but at least you'd expect something if you pay this amount... More

Stayed here while visiting Lucerne on a roadtrip around Switzerland. The place itself is old and not so inviting. It is however cheap which is a rarity in Switzerland, location is good and within walking distance of the central area. Cheap and not so cheerful but recommend for a brief stay.

What the lion lodge does well is that they inform you of all their rules, regulations and extra charges related to your stay. There was plenty of signage about checking in time and where to leave your luggage. What we didn't appreciate was the late 4pm check-in. After a long commute to Lucerne, you don't want to have to sit... More

This is a relatively cheaper place to spend a couple of nights in Luzern. Our room was pretty small with hardly any amenities but, the bathroom was spacious and had hot water. Quality of sleep was not too good since it's right next to a major road. The lodge has a tiny kitchen with a refrigerator. Wifi was spotty and... More

I traveled for almost four months through Europe and this was by far the worst hostel experience I ever had. The joke for the rest of the trip was whenever something bad or extremely good happened we'd say "well it's no Lion Lodge". The only staff I saw were sitting in the locked office and the only exchange was of... More
