I spent just one night at the Lausanne Guesthouse this past September for 38 Francs for the night, about 41 US Dollars. It's only about a 5 minute walk from the train station which was very convenient. I didn't hear the trains at night but I was in a room that faced the front of the building, not the back where the train tracks are. The rooms were very basic but clean with those sturdy wooden bunk beds, not the flimsy metal ones. A very nice bonus was the view of the mountains from the hostel, so pretty! There is that XXX cinema right at the corner of the street that the hostel is on and an ugly underpass by the same intersection but even as a young female, I never felt unsafe while walking around the area, even at night. The lobby, common area, and kitchen are all nice...very bright and airy space that's pleasant to spend time in. There's a nice garden out front as well. It's very easy to walk around the city from the hostel and you also get a free transport card upon arrival. So a lot of public transit within the city is at no cost including the metro that takes you down to the waterfront. I enjoyed my stay here and would most definitely go back again!
