We stayed in the Youth Hostel lugano-Savosa during eastern 2012. The hostel is nicely located on the sunny side of a hill, with a large enclosed garden containing comfortable seats, a small swimming pool and lots of (small) attractions for children. It is a quiet place (at least when we visited) because it's not in the city centre and this allows you to really relax. The rooms are simply but complete (our room had its own bathroom, but this is optional), cooking can be done in a seperate kitchen which is very well equipped. Of note though, the prices are counted per person and not per room, so in the end we (2 persons) still had to pay a little over 100 CHF per night, which, in light of the simple rooms, may be a bit too much. You can easily reach the hostel by car or by taking bus nr 5 from the train station, get out at Crocifisso. All in all I can certainly recommend this location for a weekend.
