    Great hostel. A bit expensive, 40 Franks per night is too much but ok...In general Lausanne is an expensive city. The stuff was really nice and helpful. The breakfast really really full and delicious. The only negative was that the WiFi signal was toooooo slow......More

    This hostel is really nice with a lot of facilities. Staff is always happy to help you. It is price wise for Switzerland. To reach the hostel from the city centre, you need to use public transport but after you learn how to use it...More

    Compared to most city hostels, this one is definitely much nicer. Nice garden, nice common area etc... As usual in Switzerland, however, it was extremely expensive. About 70 CHF for a single room without the bathroom! The breakfast was very good with lots of choices....More

    The staff in this hostel are incredibly helpful. The facilities are great (more like a hotel than a hostel !) The breakfasts are awesome and the place is well located and easily accessible by bus from the city centre. I had a great stay here...More
