Most rooms include 4 to 6 beds but there is also a cheaper option which is the spacious 20 bed dorm. A generous breakfast buffet is always included in our rates.

Delicious evening meals are also available at the hostel, just let us know when you check-In.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Youth Hostel at Luzern was a disappointment after living for 2 days in back packer villa.

1. There is no sign post or direction board put up in near bus stop no 18 to go to the Hostel.
2. Bathrooms were not clean.
3. they donot provide towels for bath or atlest 2 coffe per day as given by backpackers.
4. Since it is hostel there should be some Kitchen to cook our food , there was nothing like that.
5.There is no storage facility for our Luggage during stay.
6. Person at reception need to more friendly and nice to vistor - they seem not to happy in replying to general queries of the customer.

If i have to rate youthhostel in comparsion to Backpackers villa i would rate 4 out to 10 .

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is a very basic budget accommodation. There are better places than this. The staff were polite but not very helpful.

Positives
Breakfast was good.
Shower and toilet is maintained clean.

Negatives

The quilt was a bit torn in our room. Also there were some very noisy gang during our stay who just hanged around in the garden (just outside our room) drinking and very noisy till 2:00AM. When we reported this to staff , they just said they knew about them couldn't do much otherwise they would move over to reception and be noisy there - Not the sort of response you would like to hear from Staff who need to enforce things.

The rooms are very small. Stay in summer is not recommended as there is not much of ventilation. There is only one toilet and one shower to share between two rooms( 8+ people) and hence you may want to consider if you are not staying alone or to share with other people.

Location
Was ok. Accessible by bus 10-15mins to Bus and Railway station. But the frequency of bus is also once in 15 mins and wait time is more on weekends.

Overall
Would we stay there again?..Only if there was nothing else available.
