Perfect for short stopover or longer stay.
The rooms are basic but super clean and functional. We stayed in a room with 6 bunks as we are a family of 5. But it was cool on a hot day. If you book really early, ask for a pool view in the new block.
Lots of families enjoying the poo

We stayed here for two nights in July. We have stayed in a few youth hostel so we knew only to expect the basics however what we did not expect to get was bed bugs. You have to pay five Swiss franks per night to use the kitchen. So even if you just wanted to make a cup of tea you

Response from Roland M, Direttore at Youth Hostel Lugano Savosa
Responded Sep 17, 2016
Dear Ms. Little, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to read our hostel might not have lived up to your expectations. However, we would have prefer if you would have come to the reception to point out all these important issues. Our receptionists are always happy to assist guests with anything as long as it is brought to their attention. Regarding bedbugs, we check our mattresses frequently and never had such a problem. I am afraid you might have gotten some bad mosquito bites. Mosquitoes are a small disadvantage from our beautiful gardens, but we are glad that you enjoyed the pool! Usually we only offer female and male dormitory rooms. However, we provide mixed dormitory rooms when asked by guests in advance. Since you booked on the page of youthhostel.ch , that information was not specified,. That is why we directly contacted you via email to clarify that you were going to be separated. Dormitory guests can use the kitchen in the main building free of charge. We only ask 5 CHF for the kitchen use for private room guests. This was a small misunderstanding, Our female dormitory room is on a separate building from the male dorm room and a female only shower use to guaranty extra privacy. We are sorry if you did not realize this important detail. We apologized if these issues had such an impact on your stay, but we hope you still enjoyed your time in Lugano. Best regards,

"Since there are no busy streets in the near vicinity of the hostel, I think all rooms are fine. The size is small though, bringing in multiple large suitcases might form a bit of a problem."
