It's a nice and clean hostel to stay. There're 2 kitchens for use and you can rent towels at 1franc each. It seemed to be a place popular with Koreans, or rather Switzerland seemed to be really popular with Koreans. Booked a 2 bedded dorm and was rather surprised to have a room to ourselves. The toilets were all kept... More

We are a family of four and was our first experience in a hostel. It was clean and quiet and centrally located as well as near the lake. We prepared a few meals and kept food in the fridge and it worked out well! We had our laundry done as well which was great. The staff were helpful and pleasant.... More

We stayed in one of the private rooms at this hostel. Two people in the room. It had easy access to the train station and was in a good area of town. Hostel was very quiet. Breakfast wasn't included so we opted for the optional breakfast upstairs with the University Students. It was quite minimal and not that cheap so... More

Close walk to the main town (15 min) this hostel is a great option for those who do not want to break the bank. We stayed in a private room, the accomodations are basic but clean and nice. There is a great lake and park across the street when you want to just chill. The area was a bit buggy... More

I had a great stay here! The room was so nice - my room had a closet that locked, so plenty of space to lock up all your stuff, and a nice bed. The whole place was very clean. The location is also pretty good. It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the center of town, which is a bit... More

The location of this hostel is great. Right on the lake, with plenty of opportunities for recreation just outside the front doors. Our three bed room was petty small, even for hostel standards in my experience, with two of the beds pushed together, effectively causing two guys to share a bed. Other than that, it was fine.

The hostel is not central but no more than 10-15min walk from the old town. The rooms are very basic with not much character but have everything you need. The whole hostel is very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. If it wasn't for the common area I would have said this was an average hostel. But the... More

The room was basic but very nice; clean and quiet with balcony included. Excellent location next to the lake and a few minutes from the center and train station. Very friendly and helpful staff! Good value for money, considering acommodation prices in Switzerland. Would definitely go back :)
