The city of Lausanne stands on a hill and has steep, narrow streets, so strong muscles are required, particularly for the uphill climb to the cathedral, the most important Gothic monument in Switzerland. Window-shop in the bric-a-brac and antique shops or take a breather in one of the numerous bistros and bars, or along the lovely promenade of the former fishing village of Ouchy, in the Musee de la Photographie, which is worth a visit, or at the Swiss Cinematheque (with its picture archive of famous Europeans) or Olympic Museum (the only one in the world).

The location of the electric plugs is a nightmare in the room. Otherwise everything was fine: the staff, the cleaning, the breakfast, even the location is not bad, it's 5 minutes walk from the bus station.

I'm traveling around Switzerland, staying almost completely just in the Swiss Youth Hostels. This was my first one. It was disappointing, honestly. The staff were kind, and it's super clean, which I appreciate, but it just wasn't a good hostel. I'm at my second Swiss Youth Hostel now, and I can say so far at least that they feel very institutional. It doesn't feel like a place to meet people. The included breakfast was terrible. Canned fruit, bad bread...don't do it unless you really need to avoid the expensive Swiss prices. The bedding wasn't very good. I think it's the same in all the hostels, but in Lausanne it was missing the comforter – it only had the comforter cover, and I was cold all night. Worst of all was the location. It's not close to any restaurants, or anything at all. You have to take a bus and the metro to get to the city center – which isn't super difficult, but it's definitely annoying. I was exhausted my first night and it was pouring rain and I was frustrated that there was nowhere nearby to eat. It's not a bad hostel. It's super clean, which was well-appreciated. But I definitely wouldn't stay again. Definitely not for 41 CHF per night.

The hostel is located far from the city to some extent, but in return the hostel provides free buses to reach the city by free tickets to customers for all transport in the city of Lausanne, also gives discounts to some restaurants within the city and the most important characteristic of this hostel is the dining room where it features Offering a unique and varied buffet in the type of food and drinks as well this hostel is very convenient for those seeking relaxation, relaxation and tranquility

Pros: of course, the main reason to visit this place is the price. If you just need to overnight and leave early in the morning, it's a perfect place for it, even with a nice basic breakfast. You have enough parking spots, separated with a barrier. Wi-Fi is also good, working is not a problem. Nice and young atmosphere, with some activities such pool playing, children area and much more. Cons: we had a double room with our own facilities. Lack of light, no full height mirror, bad sound absorption. Don't expect a lot and be ready for the basics. If you are young and energized, maybe it's a nice place for you to meet new people.

Jeunotel is perfect for solo travellers on budget- clean rooms with everything you need. Transportation is good once you get used to it. Shoutout to Gonzalo/Lorenzo (the kind gentleman from Chile) for all the help.
