  • Kitchen was only available for certain times and not allowed to cook in the morning. Train station and bus stops were quite far. Very difficult to walk during winter times as it was windy and cold. Not recommend for family with children.

  • The hostel was great. Excellent location. It was near a lakeside park with a little beach. Everyone is hanging out there enjoying the sun. Out of the center of the city. We had a lakeside view. Staff was great. Only complaint was how they ran the kitchen. They had 2 kitchens but you could not cook breakfast in the morning. They had the microwave and toaster on in one kitchen. But turn the stove off till noon. That sucked, don't think that is necessary. Other then that, great hostel!

  • Everything to see in the town is within walking distance. Scenic lake with mountains in the background. Large hostel but communal showers. Friendly staff. No people really partying while I was there, guess that's good or bad depending on preference.Overall Lucerne was great but everything was very expensive.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
